Here's a new find: Continuity

I do love platformers, and I do love puzzles. Suddenly, poof! Both of them.

Tower of Heaven. Shouldn't take very long, but it has very nice (simple, but changing) gameplay mechanics, nice simple art, nice simple themes and such.

I was able to get all but three. My husband gave me the answer to one and two I had to look up (the three kids in bathing suits, and the guy dreaming of the orange).

I bombed that challenge; the tv shows and a few bands did me in, even with the graphic and verbal hints.

Is there some sort of answer key I missed? I want to know what I didn't know.

Thanks for the heads up on that. :)

No answer key that I could find. I just searched google to find the answers. And don't feel bad, I AM a lot older than you and actually watched a lot of those shows, etc. :)

I freaking DARE you to go to any thread on this forum, paste the following into your address bar, press Enter (or Return) and not have fun.

Everyone at my work plays with it almost constantly. Super-fun if you're getting tired of a site you're working on.

I find This pretty amusing for some reason. Think of any character and it tries to guess. It's managed to get some pretty obscure ones.

I did Ender first and it got him.

I've stumped it a few times but usually on characters that I wasn't sure on some of the details for, so I had to say "I don't know" various times.
