Ooh -- well, since that's the last level at the moment, I'll let you struggle with that one on your own.

Okay, on this one, blow up *only* the box right above Higgs.

I understand what you mean. But not to nag, but I've been stumped for almost 2 months. Could you at least give me a hint when the quarks chapter comes out?
Just call me "I.M. Awesome". Ba-dum tsh!

I'll do you one better - I can give you a hint now. (2 months is quite long enough to be stuck on a level. I do have a heart in here somewhere.) I played through 4-20 just now, and it is possible in 27 moves (though I managed to get it after a much longer 37 moves).

I don't have a perfect hint, since this level has a lot of steps, but here we go:

First, you'll need to free the Tau by sliding it to the right. (And you won't want to destroy it in the process.)

Don't do that. Move that top Tau up one spot instead.

Thank you , now onwards to 20 and I hope you get some quark levels soon , also I noticed that for some reason he flash version was complaining about flash not being up to date, using 32bit version of palemoon (its a fork of firefox) with flash 16 on windows 7 x64

That problem will be on your end; it's your browser giving the alert. I don't see any way that it could be on Andy's end.

Glad you got it! And also glad that the flash bug resolved itself. (Always nice when they do that)
