  • Hey guys, ive spent about a half na hour trying to do this test, didnt worked it out. Is it even completeable, or do i need to hack the game to beat it? :D

  • It took me days of meditation to solve it.

    Just relax, and don't feel rushed! It's easier than you think!

  • Any vague hints?

    I've solved all of them within 10-20 minutes. I've found how to lose the base with 1 opponent left...

  • Out of curiosity, has anyone found a way to solve it without losing the queen? I am wondering if my solve is just a clever trick and not the way it's intended to be solved.

  • You can in fact complete it without losing the queen though the basic play is near identical.

  • I've completed all the current puzzles. Kobayashi Maru is completable, just remember explosions are your friend on that one. ;-)

    That may be giving too much away...

  • Okay, here's 3 things I'll let you know that can help you out.

    You probably noticed you need to get rid of the two subs that are attacking the intelligence officer. If you can get rid of both of them at once, that might be helpful.

    You don't have to be in control of the base at the end as long as the opponent isn't, even if you blow up your own troops.

    Finally, experiment with times of sending things. It takes some precision to make sure you don't leave yourself vulnerable for both subs coming at the base you're defending.

  • Hi,

    I've found a way to win, strangely...

    The puzzle has been validated, but it says "Game Over. Opponent wins."
    I don't wanna say how I achieved this here, maybe it's the right solution, but the message puzzles me ^^

    Is there someone from dev team who could take a look ?

    Contact me =)

  • Read the puzzle desciption really, really carefully. The opponent may never own Donatu, and your Intel Officer must get there without having been in battle. As long as you meet those criteria it's a valid solution (and also the one I used). ;)
