Jen- for level one - you gotta drop another bomb on the right side to get it to miss the building thingie when it rises. Took me two days to figure it out! Level 2 is easy, but I'm still stuck on three!

Can you lower the gun in the 1st level? the bullets keep hitting above the chain that hangs down and I cant get it to fall.

Did you pick up a bomb crate from below first? There's more than one control in that control room. wink

This is sooo addicting. Where do you drop the second bomb. Do you hit it again with the rocket thing or drop it with the control room guy? Do you move it to the end of the arm or leave it in the original spot? I'd swear I had already tried all these things but I'm obviously missing some sequence. Arghhh

The rocket is only used once. You need to blow the fuses with the 2nd bomb.

Open the door to the control room before you click on the guy with the lunch box. When he leaves the upper beam he will climb the stairs & enter the control room. Then you can use him to move the crates. The door is hard to see. Inside the control room is both a lever and a button, also hard to see. One moves crates the other drops them. Is that your dilemma?

Can you get to the left edge of level 2? If not, you're going to have to retry from scratch. The left edge has a cherry picker (elevator) that will bring you up to the top level. Those reddish crates that break are useless. If you need further help just holler. wink

Kim: Other than getting the guy into the booth, there are 3 things to do in order to pass level 1. If you blow the phone pole, the fuse box (left side of screen) goes out. So, you need to figure out how to do both in a logical order.

Well, don't use all the explosives on the floor then! lol

You only need to explode the floor crates until there's 2 on top of each other. There's a lever thingie under the conveyor belt that will help you accomplish the task. Ping Pong anyone?

When you finish how about helping me escape from the 2 new room games I'm playing. AAAAHHHHH!!!!

He won't climb on 2 crates - just one - so used 2 explosives on floor crates and one on the crates on the middle lever. The lift of the loader doesn't rise. Ah maybe, I missed a hotspot on the loader.

There's a button on the wall when you're on the elevator.

Oh! Are you talking about the forklift? There's a button close to the lever in the cab. Impossible to see. Just click around. It's between the lever & the man driving.

Okay...

I'm stuck...level 3. I presume you have to get the little guy with the basketball over and somehow get him to climb on the forklift so he can escalate the crates. Am I wrong here? All I've done so far, is smashed the forklift, mash the little basketball guy with the forklift, and/or have him stand to the right of the crates next to the forklift!

Assistance!!!!

Has anyone been contacted by the Association Against Cruelty to Stick Men (AACSM)? lol I played this one a couple of weeks ago and didn't manage to get on the platform in level 3 yet. I know I have to explode the crates there, but I can't get the last two. I think it's a matter of timing with the lever, and I'm a lousy shot. smile
There's another stickman one here that's a real dilly:

I am trying to play free the balloon on Kontraband web site. I can't get the balloon past the building on the left. I use the gun to drop the two boxes. and the right side of the balloon rises, but when I release the tether, it hits the building above the gun.
PS Love the little games on this site. Kay

Hi Wait. You need to drop the first box on the right of the balloon, this should cut the right rope and raise the right side of the balloon. Then burn the rope that holds the left side and immediately drop the other box on the post on the right side of the balloon. This will give you the space needed to clear the balloon to float.
Good luck

Sue

Hi Tvoe. The ball is just there to amuse you. It isn't needed to get to the top of the factory. The last set of crates [brown ones] are there for fun. The light boxes and the red ones are the only ones that are used to progress to the top.
Good luck

Sue

Level 3: at the factory. I can get the figure up to the second level. There are two boxes in front of him and one box at the bottom floor that he just climbed up to get to the second level. I cannot get him to move beyond that spot. What's happening?

oh, oops, actually I cannot move the red crate way up at the top. Does that one have to get released before he'll move?

You can move it when you're on the top floor.
Your stickman will move before and after the top red crate moves. smile

Okay, thanks. Back to previous question, then. I cannot get my stickman to move once I get him to the second floor. There are two boxes to his left on the same second floor and one box at the bottom floor. He climbs up the box on the bottom floor to get to the second level, but then, stops moving. I have to use two red crates to break the two boxes at the edge of the second floor and two of the three boxes on the bottom floor. Then, I use one final red crate to break two boxes on the left on the second floor. The two remaining boxes on the second floor, at the left are side by side. Can't my stickman climb over them?

What am I doing wrong? Stickman climbs up on the box on the floor, then climbs further up onto the second level (floor), takes a couple steps and stops. I cannot progress or make him move at all any more.

Tvoe, you need to use the explosive barrels to clear the path on the 2nd level so the stickman can get to the elevator on the far left. The forklift is your friend.

Use the exploding barrels & the lever beneath the conveyor belt to launch them to the 2nd level, exploding the crates in your way. There should be 2 boxes stacked on the bottom floor when you're done. That's where your friend, the forklift, comes in handy. Have the stickman climb aboard. The button to raise the forklift is hard to find. It's between the steering wheel & the guy driving. Good luck!
