Re: Cyber Tank - please help !!!!

Instead of using two boxes to block off the right turret, you can put one box at the end of the conveyer belt so that you can step exactly where your Box 2 goes. This causes the left turret to destroy the right one. Afterwords you have to push the box off to the side, either in the corner of the cu...

Re: Cyber Tank - please help !!!!

I use all 5 boxes to get across, so I need another blocker so I can get down to last crystal in bottom right hand corner - can you reach it, 'cos it looks like you're doing it same way as me?? You should only need four of the boxes to cross the river. That leaves one box and two downward facing can...

Click on an occupied tile, e.g. the corner mirror, to face that way without moving. This is the key to completing this level - you need this trick, as every time I turned round, I kept moving.
