(Solved) Level 37 and diamonds

Post by francescobat » Sun Mar 10, 2019 4:46 pm

Hi !
I am new here !
I can not pass the level 37 because the number of the diamonds is less than the goal.
I try to kill the bugs but they generate a short of diamonds.
The bug up to right, it generate just 5 diamonds.
What is the solution ? :?
Bye

Hello Francesco, welcome to the forum! :D
I can not pass the level 37 because the number of the diamonds is less than the goal.
Let's have a look:
- the goal (number of gems to be collected to solve the level) is set to 30
- there are three bugs in the level
- each bug creates eight emeralds and one diamond
- an emerald has the value "1"
- a diamond has the value "3"
- the maximum number of gems is 3 * (8 * 1 + 1 * 3) == 33
I try to kill the bugs but they generate a short of diamonds.
Each killed bug gives 10 gems in this level (11 - 1, because the bug has to be killed by touching it with the "deadly shield" activated, to there is one gem less than the maximum per bug), so you can get exactly 30 gems in this level.

You have to snap one field next to the bug to let it move away from the wall, to let it create the maximum possible number of gems. ("Snapping" was introduced and explained in the envelope in level 12.)

If all else fails, watch the solution tape: Go to the main menu, blindly type ":insert-solution-tape" or simply ":ist" (without the quotes) and press "play" on the tape recorder! :-)

Yeah, just like Holger said, each one leaves 9 gems, the middle of each is diamond, so it's 8+3=11, but since you're killing bugs with deadly shield, it's 11-1=10. There's three bugs, so 10x3=30, and you need just that amount of gems to collect, so you had to free the bug and move it away from strong walls to where it could leave more emeralds than nearby.
