      It's good that you appreciate it because after a few weeks in the funk of level 22 I finally made it to 23...

            Sometimes when I have an unsolvable problem, or level, in this case, I just sleep on it. Often I either wake up with the solution to a problem already formulated in my head or with a feeling that I can overcome it now and after really making an effort and trying 50 times I'll just get it the first time like it was nothing. That's what happened from 22 to 23 in this case.

            Do you guys get that too?

              I'd actually enjoy it if the controls weren't crap !! it keeps glitching on me causing a screw-up.

                Out of my ancient lurking status. I spent way too long on this, and now I'm repaying the favor :P

                    Well I got to the last level (24) in a few hours which I can't be bothered completing. There's a disclaimer at the beginning of this game that says you might get annoyed with continually loosing. What they fail to mention is that the controls are so crap you can't help but continually loose. It wont move when you want it to move and when you finally get it going you can't get it to stop spinning. It's a shame really because it completely ruins what could have been a great game. 7/10

                      Cool. I'm almost there. I've noticed that on a Mac it was faster and more responsive than on my home computer. Another way of improving responsiveness and speed is to lower detail but then it looks like crap.

                          I reached level 22 in an hour or two, and the controls were fine for me. I don't know how sleeping on 22 helps though, because the solution to 22 seemed fairly straightforward in theory, and just hard in execution -- there were 2 platforms you had to jump on to, and I could make the jump successfully about one in ten tries, but never got the jump right twice in a row so I'd always fall off after the first one and have to start over.

                            That was meant as a general aside. I was just trying to gauge if other people were intuitive as well or if they just plug away at a problem. Regardless of it being hard to figure out or execute, I find that I come upon a solution to things without even consciously thinking about it. That's what I was getting at and that is what I was asking.

                            As for the controls, besides my computer I've showed this to 4 other people and each system behaved slightly differently so your mileage may, and probably will, vary.

                              Well, given that there are only 2 available controls in this game -- turn left and turn right -- there's not a whole lot of available diversity in how to approach a problem. So for the handful of puzzles where I didn't really know how to approach it just from looking at it (like the long curved spike-chute one and the one with the rotating plus sign), I'd just throw in some random rotations and watch what happened, and when I got a trajectory that looked promising I'd try to replicate it. But for most puzzles it was pretty much "go down this pathway and try not to hit the spikes", so not so much of the subconscious puzzle solving here.

                              In more general life? Sometimes. I don't think my memory is very well suited to that style of thinking though, because when I do solve some problem while asleep, I have a terrible time remembering what the answer was when I wake up. ;)
