Help me puzzle Fewest Moves 9 9 Years, 8 Months ago Karma: 0  
I am so frustrated that I cannot figure this one out. I tried everything that I can think of. I have several new games to play but it is a goal of mine to finish PQ2 before moving on to more puzzle games. This puzzle has only 28 moves as the goal. I can't picture how it can be done.

This was one of about 5 remaining on-disc puzzles that I hadn't solved yet. I tried it again yesterday, and finally solved it, although I couldn't tell you how, even right after I finished it. I messed around with moving blocks so much, I have no idea what I did! I ended up with somewhere in the 100's of moves (150?) and got a horrible score (15%?), but I did manage to solve it.

The concept should seem pretty straight-forward - place all of the glass blocks where the lasers are to activate the switches and open the doors to the goal. But the execution is not that simple The only thing I can tell you that I remember is that I grabbed the top block first (on the platform leading to the goal), and dropped it down to the lowest spot. After that, it was just a matter of moving blocks around to try and get all the glass blocks in place...

Sorry I can't be much more help, but keep at it and hopefully you'll get it solved!

Do you remember if you kept the same look and feel of the stairway up that it began with (zig zag)? I tried to just have one stairway going up to the exit (not the zig zag that the stair took at the start of the level). This method that I tried always left me needing 2 more blocks to even climb onto the stairway.

I kind of gave up and am now working on Mercury game.

It's the most amazing puzzle, but it seems that you are gradually finding out.

Only three glass blocks will do.
And "spiral"

I only have 2 puzzles left to solve. This is one of them.
I have tried and tried, spent numerous hours and I'm still unable to do it.
Please help!
I always seem to be short 1 or 2 cubes.
I'm desperate

The first move is as Bruce said.
The last move, you will stand just under the lasers with a block, go up a spiral stairway, and put it on the top step.
