Hi: I've tried for a year to get past level V 1 Linkit - A Christmas Carol and have never made it. I have probably tried it 100 times but I run out of time. It's become so frustrating I think I'll return the game if that's possible. I've even tried re-installing but it's just the same. Any tips? K

I've been playing this game for more than a year. I got past V-6 once (can't imagine how) then ran out of lives in short order. I try chapter 5 every day. Does anyone have a strategy? At first, I tried working from the bottom of the puzzle. Now, I'm working from the top, which does work better but still... If anyone has suggestions, I'd love to hear it. Abd BFG staff, have you ever gotten through chapter five? If so. strategy advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

Thanks for putting this back on the forum for fishies to see. I love a Christmas Carol , the book any of the old movie versions--but Alistair Simm the best--

and I love this game. Its a definite to buy.

The art is wonderful, and it's a clever take on M3s

Pros: A match 3 game with an interesting twist. Instead of switching objects around to make matches, you simply link 3 or more identical objects in any direction. You can have links going all over the board sometimes which is kind of cool. In between the grids, there are hand drawn scenes that tell an abridged version of Dickens' A Christmas Carol.

Cons: No relaxed mode and a limited number of lives. If you gasp your final breath in the middle of an act (there are 4 acts with several grids each), you have to start over at the beginning of the act rather than at the grid you died on. Not so bad if you're near the beginning of one. Horrible if you're near the end. The power up hammer (which only knocks out one square or one chain at a time) takes forever to load so it's not much of a help on some of the levels. The story scenes are very basic and only of decent quality - nothing spectacular.

Overall Impression: I like the different approach to the genre; but since I'm having a lot of trouble getting past level 4-1 or 4-2 (tried many. many times; haven't succeed yet), I'm very, very frustrated with it. Bah humbug!

I also have been playing linkit since it came out. I am on level 5-15. There is a square grid with 9 blocks around the grid. I've cleared the square but I don't know how to get the outside squares. Any help out there. Thanks and Happy New Year

Level 5-15 is the last level. Finally just beat the game about 10 minutes ago. To get the outside blocks you have to use the hammer. So as soon as the hammer goes silver use it on an outside block, then continue to clear squares in the center.
