Question:
What’s that all about?
Answer:
Well, this is a small Online Game I’ve made just for fun.

Question:
Is there a price or something to win?
Answer:
No!

Question:
Why shall I play this game if there is nothing to win?
Answer:
 Just for fun :o)

Question:
How to play this game?
Answer:
It’s easy. You just have to see the picture, read the text, click somewhere or type in a URL. Than you get to the next page (mostly called “Level”. If you reach the last level, you will be added to the “Hall of Fame”.

Question:
Where is the fun? Sounds stupid simple?
Answer:
Well, either you need a password to get to the next level or you need to find the name of the URL. In both cases you have to solve a riddle to get the password or the name of the next URL.

Question:
How do I solve these riddles?
Answer:
In some cases there is a clear question you have to answer. In most cases there is no question but some hints that, if you understand them, will help you to find the answer.

Question:
What’s about these hints?
Answer:
A hint can be anything that is readable on the page itself (the picture and the text) or in the sourcecode of the page.
Sometimes you have to use Google to find some information.
Sometimes you need a special tool to find the answer. All the tools that you need can be found for free in the web.

Question:
What about these codes?
Answer:
In every level you can get a code just by clicking the number in the upper left corner. You need all the codes to reach the next stage. Write them down!
From time to time I will change these codes to avoid that people solve the game just by getting the codes from somewhere else.

Question:
I need to send an eMail to reach the next level. Why and what happens with my eMail address?
Answer:
Every time you finished a “Stage” you get the password for the next stage via an autoresponder. Therefor you have to send an eMail to a special address. Your eMail address will neither be protocolled nor stored/used in any way. It’s just needed because I like to know how many people reach a stage and to avoid that to many peoples reach stages by cheating.

Question:
I’ve been stuck in a level. Can you help me?
Answer:
No! Use your brain. It’s getting harder the further you go. But it will never be unsolveable or unfair. All you need to find the answer is on the page.

Question:
Please give me some hints for the beginning!
Answer:
OK...

Level 1:
If you are not able to click with your mouse, forget about this game.

Level 2:
Read the text under the picture. The words open and email are written in italic. use these words as the URL for the next level
(replace email.htm by openemail.htm)

Level 3:
If you move the mouse into the picture a tooltip is shown (“take a look into the source code”).
Do it!

Level 4:
Read the text. There’s a question. Answer it.

Level 5 - xx:
Use your brain ;o)
