US Version

There are three blocks this time?!

It might seem complicated, but it's nothing to freak out about. Just stay calm, and you'll get the hang of it.

UK Version

You've got three blocks to deal with this time!

There's no need to panic, though. Keep calm and carry on!

US Version

Are the red and yellow blocks ending up in the opposite spots from where you want them to be?

If you take a close look, you'll see that you easily switch them around.

UK Version

Are the yellow and red blocks' positions the wrong way round? Look closely. You can switch them easily.

US Version

Here's the first seven moves:

Press the right button five moves, the left button once, and then the right button one more time.

Watch the movement of the blocks carefully, however. The next step is a tricky one.

UK Version

Here are the first steps for moving the positions of the red and yellow blocks.
Rotate the playing field five times using the right-hand button, once with the left-hand button and then once more with the right-hand button.

Make sure you watch the movements carefully, though. The next step is a hard one.

US Version

Continuing on from Hint Three, press the right button once and then the left button once.

From here, you should be able to figure out the rest without too much trouble.

UK Version

From where Hint 3 left off, touch the right-hand button, then the left-hand one.

You should be able to work out the rest from here.
