Ok - I have done a search here on this topic - as per above title - but obviously I am doing something wrong as hundreds of topics came up not even related to this game.

Now I have sailed through this game - but am stuck at Day 78 because I dont understand what to do with the lower separate grid with all the locked tiles. I do NOT want the solution - I just need a hint as to how to get to these unlocked tiles please.

Can anyone help please? I have looked at Gamezebo etc etc but cant find any help on the internet at all. Someone please make my Sunday a good day LOL!

There's also tips here (scroll down) for how to give yourself more lives. The last post in that thread says you need at least 3 fireballs to get past the level.

Thanks Misa - I already have the extra lives - Its extra TIME that I need LOL!

I managed to get three fireballs but after unlocking the two middle frozen tiles, what should I aim the fireball at next?

This game is just SO addictive.

Also I have anaother problem while playing this game. I have a new Logitech E110 cordless optical mouse and the cursor continually flickers and disappears whilst playing this and other Bigfish games. I have played 80 Days before with a normal corded optical mouse and did not encounter this problem. I have contacted BFG support, but just wondered if anyone else had experienced this problem?

Rosa, I have not seen a trainer for this game to turn off the timer.

I haven't heard anyone say that a mouse made a difference in how a gamwe runs but I suppose it's possible. Let us know what BF says.

Whoo Hoo - I finished the level (more by luck, I reckon!) and the first 80 days around the world - It took me the whole morning to crack these last few levels whiich I found very very hard.

Thank you for your help, without which I would be still tearing my hair out!!

Congrats Rosa! I was just about to tell you that I think you can add more time by editing the gameinfo.xml file (same place where you can add more lives). I haven't tried it but I might and will report back to let others know the work around.

Oh and about that flickering cursor - Duh - I went into Options to turn off the hints and there was also the option to "Use Custom Cursor" - I clicked ok and hey presto - all my problems were solved LOL!

no hope of ever making it to day 78

stuck at day 49 ... all the pieces are blocked off in the middle column ... saw the HorseDancer hint about moving them over, but still no luck ... any other hints?

wouldn't have made it this far if I hadn't discovered how to increase the number of lives ... thanks to whoever sent that hint

For those of you who need more time (I have XP), go into notepad and following the same path as you did to change the number of lives, choose the file called "level". This files contains information on each level including the amount of time you are given. Where it says "time=400"(or something close), add a number in front like another 4 "time=4400". When I did this I noticed the timer moved extremely slow and finished a level before the timer seemed to even move.

I love it when I can do this, then I can relax and enjoy the game more without having to worry about running out of time.
