I'm stuck on level 40 of Numba, "Slowly Now". It's one where there are ice cubes at the top of 5 columns and fire cubes at the bottom of these columns with sixe numbers in between in each of the columns. I just can't figure it out. Anyone have any tips for getting rid of all 30 of the middle numbers in five moves or less?

listen to the level title. Take your time, only use 3 cubes at a time.

Also, something else you might have seen in one of the previous levels. If you are left with just ice blocks (or just ice blocks plus some other plain blocks that aren't a full run), the ice blocks will convert without their being fire. So try to deal with all your normal blocks first.

Edit: my sister-in-law was trying the game and I looked at the tutorial with her and turns out my memory was a little weak. The behaviour of the ice blocks sometime melting was not nebulous at all. They melt after ten turns.

Ok, 46 in Numba Puzzle now

Ok,

The new one I'm having trouble with is number 46 called "Shifting Tower". Anyone got an additional tip for how to interpret this name as a hint?

The best I've been able to come up with is a single 9 down in the bottom right corner.

I know the key concept is not splitting off any group so that it's too small to get a run at the end, but taking that general idea and upgrading it to a strategy has made my brain explode.

I'm also stuck on level 46. Felt like I've tried everything. I've gotten to where I only have like 3 tiles left... I can't find a pattern, so I find it nearly impossible.

there is hope

I finally completed 46 a few days ago but honestly can't remember how I have gone back and tried again but no joy. The only real tip I can give is that I cleared the puzzle from right to left and did no more than 3 tiles at a time starting in the bottom right 987 I think??? Sorry I didn't pay more attention I was too happy! Now stuck on 76.......

Level 77 vanishing numbers

congratulations mate glad to hear you have caught up! I've been trying to figure out 77 for a while now! What have you tried? I was pretty sure you had to start with 123 in the bottom left corner then 456 as it opens up the left side but from their I have no idea..... If you then get rid of 666 it changes all fire blocks and melts all but 1 of the ice blocks so feels like the right thing to do but not helped so far.

stuck on 77

thought it might be useful to share how I am starting in case someone spots what I'm missing!

1) Bottom left 1-2-3
2) Bottom left 4-5-6 (both of these moves "feel" right as they melt ice blocks)
3) Lower right 1-2-3
4) lower left 1-2-3
5) upper right 1-2-3-4 (using the 3 blocks below the ice blocks)
6) quickly 1-2-3-4 on the old ice and fire blocks (before the fire ones turn solid)

From here on I feel I have tried everything from upper right - 5-4-3-2-1 (cpl of ways to do that) to playing on the left (have to remove full lines here as you need the 9-1-3 to become 1-2-3 or you are stuck on the following turn).

hopefully this might help someone!!

Numba Puzzle mode Level 77

Im pretty sure it is impossible. but I can get this far starting with bottom left.

123
456
on bottom right 123
then 123 bottom left
then 1234 in between fire and ice blocks
then 1234 again when the blocks melt
then 123456 bottom right
then 12345
then 324

(there are many fifferent paths...all seem to fail)
someone out there must have the solution .
The level fails as soon as there are not enough chameleon blocks left, so somehow you must figure a way to only take the ghost blocks out as long as possible while leaving enough chameleon blocks....I think

Level 77: don't give up

I'm glad to find some people trying to figure level 77 out. It's insanely hard...I think I might be going crazy. Well anyway, I've manage to get close(or at least I think I am). There are just so many different sequences that you can follow. Here's what I've got so far:
1. 123 in bottom left corner
2. 456 in bottom left corner
3. 123 in bottom right corner
4. 123 in bottom left corner
5. 1234 in top right corner
6. 234 in top right(quickly when ice melts...use the 4 directly above the 3)
7. 12356 in bottom left corner
8. 123 in bottom left corner
9. 654 in top middle
10. 864 on the left middle
11. 321 on the top right( 321 sequence using the vanishing 3)
12. 456 on the bottom right
13. this is where I'm stuck(there's a picture below)
Well, I hope we can beat this!

Tip for level 48 -- start with the 8s and work backwards.
