Gee I seem to be in the lead here (am on level 25) but people are quickly catching up and I don't think I can maintain it. My boss is getting curious as to what I'm doing gazing at the screen so intently!

By the way, the guy in level 11 who's sticking out his thumb has a definite automotive connection in a vast, literary way.

Hi guys, I'm staring at the FedEx logo on level 4...

This logo's famous for containing an arrow in the negative space right ? But direction does not seem to be the clue, neither is color... The page source hasn't revealed anything, at least I think it hasn't...

Can anybody point me in the right direction ?

Ahhh - so that was the answer ! *grin*

Hi 2TheMax, if you're still stuck at Level 5 - the "Stairway To Heaven", your salvation lies in Wikipedia, wherein you'll have to search 4 the answer !

Hmmm, I have a proposal to send out tonight & here I'm engrossed in some puzzle game ! My boss's not going to be a very happy man !

For level 20, think "image formats" and apply your logic to the URL.

You mean the Sherlock Holmes one? "A treasure worth nothing" hints at the
plot of one of the books/stories. Just identify which one (Wiki will help) and you should be on your way. Just watch your spelling!

Incidentally, I'd like to provide timely hints but i can't because my posts are under moderation and usually take an hour or two to show up, by which time they'd have probably lost all relevance.

If you've read the Sherlock Holmes novels, you'll know one of them had a treasure which was worth nothing!! If you haven't, look closely at the picture... there's a clue there which points you towards the novel.

this game is really addictive.

Was stuck on level 8 yesterday, and managed to reach level 22 today.

Am stuck on level 22 for sometime now. Any hints?

Is level 9 the one where you have to fill in the blanks with anagrams?

If it is, read the hint in the source. "There is an important clue there."

All the guy is doing is pointing backwards with a smirk on his face. Am I on the right track?

How did you get the source for L11. I cant view the source.

Nope. Find a single word that expresses what his gesture means. There's a hint in the title.
