Presumably a girl.

I think my max would be about 100. Though I could get higher if a friend (or even Agra) helped. Is there anything more past the hurdles?
OK, I lied. 118. Switching hands helped.

I'm fairly done with this, though.
La la la la la.

If any of you have the time: a student of mine made this (that explains the bad spelling), it's currently at demo stage, but if anyone wants to play it and tell me of any bugs / what's good and bad I'm sure he'd appreciate it.

My solution to 17 has two mirrors left over -- Not sure if my solution was more elegant than the designer's solution or if they start giving you more just to play with your head...

This is reaching way back but maybe someone remembers the solution to level 16, I'm stuck.

Neat little point and click game...

Demo ends way too quickly

I have the full game. It's totally awesome and addictive. Not to mention sooo pretty. Here's a review I wrote for the Mac Games Arcade.
This is without a doubt one of the visually most stunning games I have ever played. The world that's been put before us is incredibly rich in detail, and an absolute joy to look at. The visuals reminded me a little of the French movie The Triplets of Belleville, or the works of Neil Gaiman. Just gorgeous.

The robot handles very well, and is irresistibly adorable in his actions. The puzzles are challenging and offer a wide variety of types and challenges. Sometimes you have to collect an item in one room to use in another. I dare say even the most avid puzzle solver will find something to scratch their heads about. But don't worry, there are hints available (and even a cheat book if you are completely stuck).

This game offers a complete experience; visual beauty, immersive story and locations, challenging puzzles, hours of fun gameplay. Easily worth every penny. You don't believe me, try the demo.
Yes, yes, plant, whatever.

It's exactly the same game as the one Bing posted right before you. Get a real computer already, and quit copying the short Twitter url's!
Come play with us, Danny. Forever and ever and ever.
