Have you had a chance to look at the Blog Walkthrough yet? We have full instructions for the tasks, including a marked screenshot, so that might help.

It's easier than it looks once you understand how it works. There are many possible different solutions.

Since there's no reset, I didn't put a specific solution sequence in the walkthrough, since by the time people check the walkthrough they've probably already turned some on and off and everyone would be starting in a different place.

Oh, and a big tip--if you hit the Switch again, the pointer will move back to the first letter.

To get to the Blog Walkthrough, click on the Try this Game link at the top of this page, then click on the link to the Blog Walkthrough.

If you can tell me which letters you currently have lit, I can give you a specific solution from that starting point.

Thanks for being willing to provide a solution to those of us that are hopeless with these type of puzzles - my brain just can't comprehend these things!

I have every letter lit up except for the E, X & I.

OK, this solution will ONLY work for this specific set of letters. If anyone else is stuck and you've already reviewed the Blog Walkthrough for the instructions and still can't get it, post your exact configuration and I'll give you that solution.

Anyway: E,X, and I are dark, the other letters are lit up.

1. Click on the switch above the arrows button, marked (A) in the Blog Walkthrough screenshot. This will move the lighted triangle so it's under the E, and turn all the arrow switches off so we can use whichever we need.

2. Click on the 2 arrow button. This will turn off the P. Don't worry-we'll turn it on again later.

3. Click on the 4 arrow buttion. This will light up the I.

4. Click on the 3 arrow button. This will light up the E because the letters wrap around fron N to E.

5. Click on the Switch again. This will reset all the arrow buttons. The lighted triangle is still under the E.

6. Click on the 1 arrow button. This will turn on the X.

7. Click on the Switch again. We're back at the E.

8. Click on the 2 arrow button. This will turn the P back on.

That should do it!

Thanks, Robin!

ETA: Well, I messed that all up. Wrote the instructions down wrong. I'm pretty much just over this thing. I used a credit on it, but I think I'll just be deleting it and move on already.

Good luck!

Marcy,

Hang in there, you can do it! Once you realize the Switch always takes you back to the E, you can just count over to the letters you need. And don't worry--there's nothing this hard in the rest of the game, and it really is worth finishing.

1. Click on the switch above the arrows button, marked (A) in the Blog Walkthrough screenshot. This will move the lighted triangle so it's under the E, and turn all the arrow switches off so we can use whichever we need.

Do not skip this step! Even if you have all letters dark, you might have the lighted triangle in a different position. Make sure you hit the switch before continuing with the solution.

2. Click on the 4 arrow button. This will light up the first O.

3. Click on the 1 arrow button. This will light up the S.

4. Click on the 2 arrow button. This will light up the 2nd O.

5. Click on the 3 arrow button. This will light up the X since the letters wrap around.

You have now used all 4 arrow buttons, so they will all reset and be available to you again. The lighted triangle is under the X.

6.Click on the 1 arrow button. This will light up the P.

7. Click on the 4 arrow button. This will light up the I.

8. Click on the 3 arrow button. This will light up the E because the letters wrap around.

9. Click on the Switch again. This will reset all the arrow buttons. The lighted triangle is still under the E.

10. Click on the 3 arrow button. This will light up the L.

11 Click on the 1 arrow button. This will turn off the first O. Don't worry, we will turn it back on in a minute.

12. Click on the 4 arrow button. This will light up the N.

13. Click on the Switch again. We're back at the E.

14. Click on the 4 arrow button. This willl turn the first O back on.

Good luck!
Robin

Hi everyone--

Robin has all of this pretty well under control as far as explaining how the puzzle works, but I thought I'd chime in to say that we'll be providing an update to the game that offers a skip button for the Movie Theater puzzle. We're really sorry hear that some of you have gotten stuck or frustrated by this point in the game, and we'll try to get the update turned around as fast as we to make sure that you don't stay that way for long.

Oh - and my best advice for solving the puzzle in the meantime is to use the reset switch (the one on the wall near the left edge of the screen) liberally - without using it it's definitely harder to get every letter lit up.

Look a couple of posts higher in the thread--I've already posted the solution for the "All Letters are Dark" situation.

Good luck!

7. Click on the 4 arrow button. This will turn on the 2nd O again. Now we just need to get the L.

8. Click on the switch above the arrows button, marked (A) in the Blog Walkthrough screenshot. This will move the lighted triangle so it's under the E, and turn all the arrow switches off so we can use whichever we need.

9. Click on the 3 arrow button. This will turn on the L.

Good luck!
