Puzzle

US Version

Here's a different configuration for you to try. As with last time, you can move any ball on the board below as long as it satisfies the following conditions:

  • To move, jump your selected ball over an adjacent space occupied by another ball into an empty space on the other side. You can't jump diagonally.
  • Once you've made the jump, the ball you jumped over disappears from the board.
  • To complete the puzzle, you must remove all balls from the board except for one.

All right, get hopping!

For your second move, pop a ball into the space that opened up when you moved your first ball.
