Way of an Idea Walkthrough

Way of an Idea is an excellent online puzzle game that challenges you to use logical thinking and planning to achieve your goal. This game is quite different than most other online puzzle games and really requires that you understand how the game is played and how you need to go about solving the challenge if you want to progress to the next level. You need to be careful with your resources and figure out the best way to reach your goal if you have to get a decent score. The first few levels of the game are fairly easy, but as you progress the game gets much more difficult and you'll really have to think about the moves you make. Once you get into the game, it definitely isn't easy but the challenge is what makes it so much fun and is also what makes it so addictive.

In Way of an Idea, the goal itself is fairly simple as are the rules. You have an apple, you have an inventor, you have chalk and you have an eraser. Your goal is to make the apple fall and hit the inventor in the head. To do this, you will need to guide the apple using strategically placed lines you will draw on the chalkboard with your chalk. It sounds simple, doesn't it? It isn't. You only have so much chalk you can use and you aren't being asked to draw a line for the apple to follow to the inventor. Instead, you are being asked to draw lines that will guide the apple as it falls. It can be a little hard to get the hang of this, but once you've played the game a few times, you'll get a better understanding of the rules and how the game is played. Just as you're getting used to using your chalk lines to make the apple bounce and roll along the obstacles onto the inventor's head, there are new factors introduced such as spinning obstacles, falling obstacles or other things that make the game harder.

The great thing about The Way of an Idea is that you have the chance to retry the levels as many times as you need to, as well as the fact that you're given an eraser to make adjustments instead of a clean slate. When you fail your challenge, your chalk marks aren't erased and you can use the eraser to make the adjustments you need to make. If you need to eraser everything and start from the beginning you can do so, but the eraser option helps prevent you from needing to start over if you don't have to.

Overall, The Way of an Idea is an excellent online puzzle game that challenges you to use your brain - perhaps more than any of the other puzzle games online. You need to think about your moves. You need to use logic to figure out how to solve the problem at hand. As you progress in the game, the challenges get harder and harder and the obstacles you need to use get more complicated. You'll learn to develop your problem solving skills as you play which is of course a great benefit, but probably the best benefit of all of this excellent puzzle game is that you will have a lot of fun playing. Be prepared to spend a lot of time on this one. It's definitely addictive.
