lmao, u have fun getting hard spiffy. XD
Male 1,059
hmmmm i just matched the top view. Then, i matched the front and went for the right. If the front made the right wrong, then i made the right and thought about where i could blocks without screwing it up, with getting the front at the same time. Very easy game. But its hard to get the PERFECT solution (i only got 5 and 8 perfect).
Male 127
It`s a challenge.

Challeges are fun.

It wasnt too hard though.

It was fun-hard. :P

Female 4
The first one was harder but I liked the whole set.
Male 285
I did them all, but I cheated for 1 and 10
Female 305
that was fun! :-D btw, i got them all. took me awhile, but i got it!
Female 290
cute time waster
Male 315
Woa that was hard, I never would have guessed how to solve any of them without looking at the solutions!
Male 15
I don`t get the game
Male 4,431
Very enjoyable! Getting them all yellow is the challenging part, but I really had fun! Was I bored prior to starting? Well, yeah, but still...

Male 1,114
got the easy ones: 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, then got the rest to green spots and got bored
Male 743
hard but fun..hope to see more....
Male 1,024
fun. liked it. want more.
Male 438
yellow=correct
green= you used too many blocks, and yes they`re all possible
Female 420
Really cool. Loved it. I was able to get all but 1, 4 and 10. Had to cheat and watch the video, but it made total sense after that. If you notice, they are symetrical too. Great post!
Male 7
i beat figuur8 with 14 blocks instead of 16 and i get a green mark. wtf? if you solve the puzzle with too much blocks you get a green mark. if you solve it with the correct amount of blocks you get a yellow mark. and if you solve it with less blocks than expected you get a green mark?
Male 1,142
im having flash backs to architectural drafting class in high school. had to draw so many boring isometrics in that class. had to do all the drawings so we could move on to using autocad.

drawing about 100 pointless isometrics = useless unless you count owning this easy game in my sleep

learning autocad = i still use it about once a week 7 years later.

Female 412
Yay, I did it! without the cheat, it finally just clicked
Male 34
Beat `em all, pretty easy
Male 20
Stuck on 6, any hints?
Female 28
ok... i did all of them except 1 and 9.. and i give up on those.. i have other things i have to do.. but its a really cool game.. i like it
Male 2
you can beat level 6 with 10 no 11 cubes and level 8 with 12 cubes not 16
Male 31
That wasn`t hard very fun at times.
Female 18
Pretty damn nice to play. I`ve solved it all, made `em all yellow. Quite a nice way of thinking required. Had to figure out those blocks could `float`, but then it was reasonably easier. :)
Male 1
That was moderately hard, I got them all eventually htough. At first I didn`t get the yellow vs. green marks, but yellow=good green=meh... so yeah. 10 was pretty hard, it took me awhile and a lot of re-doing. Pretty good game though :)
Female 74
THAT WAS SOOOOO MUCH FUN!!!!!! :D
Male 103
This is SO easy. Just look at how tall the "house" is, and go into top view, making sure the "front" arrow is on the bottom. Then, say if the house is 4 blocks high, put in the "top" design, stacking 4 for each spot. The go into front view and choose "Break Down". Carve in the front design, then go to the right side, doing the same for that one. Bing! Done. SO easy.
Male 896
Got them all but 1,2,3 and 10
Male 155
way too easy the last one u can just click the fill all button but then i took off blocks so there wouldnt be so many
Female 2,220

I actually did it.

All by myself...

No cheats.

No using spoilers.

I`m so so proud of myself.

L O L

Be warned: You will suffer and eventually die if you decide to live in one of these houses.
Female 2,220
DAMMIT.
SO YELLOW IS BETTER THAN GREEN!??!

I keep going bac over all the yellow ones trying ot make them green!!!

*angryy*

Male 119
what a dumb way to build a house. blocks dont float and none of them offer any protection.
Male 5,094
Video solutions, will take all the fun out of playing, here.
Female 18
where are more puzzles like these? I like them...
Male 1,455
The last one was the easiet one of all of them took me like 10 seconds would have taken less if i wouldnt have to click so many times, im completly honest now.

i guess im good with thinking
outside the box :P :)

god that joke sucked...

Male 100
This is kinda fun.
Male 167
I don`t find it hard
It reminded me my last year of highschool when we used to actually draw this moldea triplanar
Male 493
^ cool! Nice find.

I liked the elegant ones (1, 4, 10). Maybe the other ones could have been elegant, too, but my solutions weren`t very aesthetically pleasing.

Male 25
You can complete Figure 8 with 12 blocks.
Male 382
I mean to using the correct number of blocks, just making them was piss.
Male 382
I initially thought this was impossible, before I looked at the solutions. It`s very clever, really requires lateral thinking.
Male 16
Good game, too easy though.
Female 50
i will use 300 hundred characters in writing this[spoiler]wanna know how?[/spoiler][spoiler]you do?[/spoiler][spoiler]to bad cos ur not gonna![/spoiler][spoiler]i upset u?[/spoiler][spoiler]aww poor diddums[/spoiler] as you can see i can be sarcastic at times. It is both a blessing and a curse.Maybe
Female 50
[spoiler]this game is boring[/spoiler]
Male 315
darn, his spoiler was better than mine :-(
oh well, I got to show the world that I got it right!
Male 315
opiebreath, it`s not impossible.
[spoiler]you need four blocks on every level
think diagonally, that`s my tip :-P[/spoiler]
not much of a spoiler, more of a clue, but still.

This was very entertaining, and I liked it a lot.
Was it just me, or was the first one the hardest to get yellow?

Male 471
Stupid triple post...

For that last puzzle, [spoiler]look at it from any side view (just not the top).

Visualize it as 4 different 4 (tall) x 4 (wide) slices, from front to back. Fill it up, then carve out one of these designs in each slice. (_ = blank, O = block)

___O
__O_
_O__
O___

O___
_O__
__O_

_O__
O___

That`ll cover it from all angles[/spoiler]

Male 471
As for why you got yellow on 5 and 8, it`s because (doing the carve out method, at least) you automatically end up with the right number of cubes.
Male 471
The green means you got it correct.

The yellow means you got it correct WITH the correct number of cubes. It`s easy to get green, just fill the whole thing up and cut what you don`t need for each angle. To get yellow, you have to remove as much as possible and still keep the shape.

Female 15,763
How do you do 10? Using only 16 blocks? It seems a bit impossible...
Male 4,745
Why is this hard? I filled the platform, made the top look like the "top pic", turned it and made the front look like the "front pic", then turned it again and made the right side look like the "right pic". Then I had beaten that level. There was no challenge involved at all.
Male 13
I had the same question as Cheeseman1, My answer looks correct, but I got the yellow mark..maybe its something to do with the time it took?
Male 74
Some of them required thinking, but I got them all in the end.
Male 1,406
Why do 5 and 8 have yellow squares? I`m sure I got them correct...
Male 129
If it seems too easy, try not using the board at all by solving the problems in your head.
There are a total of 4x4x4 = 64 blocks, but to fill each side you only need 4x4 = 16 and every block will fill all three sides at once.

If i have further confused you, my mission is complete!

Male 38
Actually not insanely hard... I liked it. Although it reminds me a bit too much of what we once did at school :S
Male 8
There`s a much better version here.

Try filling the whole board (with the fill button, of course) and removing blocks. It`s sometimes easier that way.

Female 432
This is actually really hard. O_o
