Things start off pretty easy with a slew of tutorial levels. These levels gradually introduce new concepts that Crashmo has been built around. For sake of being complete I’ve included solutions for all these puzzles. Surprisingly, one or two prove to be challenging when you’re first learning the game.
Lesson 1 is really easy, but it teaches you one of the game’s most important lessons: pulling on blocks will cause unsupported blocks to fall.
Pulling the yellow block out one step causes the blue block to fall, see it’s that easy. Now go grab that bird, or flag if you’re playing this level a second time.
This level teaches you the fundamentals of sliding blocks, a new concept for the series.
Grab the yellow block and pull it toward you one step. From here you slide it over until you’ve created a stairway to the goal.
You learn another new technique in this level, and it’s one that will be used to solve those seemingly impossible puzzles.
Start off by pulling the bottom block toward you one step.
Now you have to grab the yellow block from the side and slide it toward the pink block. You will notice that not only does the blue block fall, but the pink block also moves. You can use this technique to slide multiple blocks at once. It’s easy here for demonstration purposes, but it gets more complex I promise.
That’s it! Sliding the yellow block caused the blue block to fall conveniently in place.
Lesson 4 is another simple sliding puzzle.
Just grab the blue block and slide it to the left until you have a stairway.
Another easy sliding puzzle.
Jump up, grab the yellow block and slide it once to the left. Now you can climb and jump across the gaps to reach the goal.
Lesson 6 is another sliding puzzle, except there’s a bit of falling action here as well.
Grab the blue block and slide it to the right until the yellow block crashes down.
Once the yellow block has crashed you will be able to climb to the top.
Lesson 7 forces you to revisit that important technique where you push a block to move other blocks.
Grab the pink block and begin sliding it left. You will also start pushing the stack of blocks in its path. Continue pushing these blocks until you have a stairway.
This is what said stairway should look like. I suppose you could push the blocks over more.
You start to see the importance of manipulating blocks to create a path to the goal in Lesson 8. Start off by grabbing the pink block.
You will need to pull the pink block out and slide it to the position you see above.
Once you have done that you can jump up and pull the yellow block out to finish.
No, you’re not experiencing Déjà vu, this is a new puzzle.
Step 1 is familiar, that’s because you’re pulling the pink block out and sliding it under the yellow block again.
However, instead of jumping up to pull blocks out, you will be pushing the pink block towards the blue structure. Doing this will cause the yellow and green blocks to stack nicely on top of the bottom block.
Now you can go for the goal!
Our first 2-Star puzzle is definitely a stumper, but nothing you can’t handle, right?
Start by grabbing and sliding the blue block to the right until the left pink block crashes to the ground.
Pull it up one and slide it to the right making sure to position it under the yellow block. See the above picture for the exact position.
Push the pink block forward and watch the other blocks fall gracefully to the desired positions. Voilà, a stairway to somewhere.
Oh right, the goal.

I’d congratulate you, but you’re not even finished with the tutorial levels yet. Better get moving, there are more birds to capture.
