School Bus Scramble

School is back in full swing for many of our readers. To commemorate, Andrew VanHeuklon ( of Click Drag Type fame) has helped created a Back-to-School puzzle for Smartkit that will challenge  students across the entire age spectrum as well as their mindful teachers. The online flash based puzzle has 5 levels, and I caution you now: things start to get tricky at level 3. All 5 challenges are great exercises in logic and planning, and are sure to put your frontal lobes to the test.  Teachers: How far along can you and your students get?! Play School Bus Scramble Now!

    On level 5, the school bus that begins in the lower right hand goes on a rampage directly to the left across the grass and off the screen.

    ok, the 5th level is working now.

    Haven’t fully tried to solve the last level yet, but I hear it’s a real brain buster. Nice Job Hex!

    If I recall correctly, especially in level 5, you can deduce a few arrow positions (around the school) using logic, ie no assumptions required for these. This makes things simpler.

    this game is awesome, the first try at number 5 was a big crash in front of the school, then I delayed one bus and voila, very cool , imagine if there were also lights and peagents, very cool.

    On my first attempt at level 5, I was able to make a bus ignore the roads and drive off the edge of the map. I guess those kids took over and decided to go on a field trip. Fixed that little routing problem and all the kiddies went to get educated.

    First, very good logic game. I like it.

    Level #1 is easy, but nice. Level #2 has unused bottom active arrow. Level #3 is very interesting! Level #4 is a little bit esier then #3. There are unused top right and bottom left inactive arrows. The most hard and interesting is Level #4. But there is one place after which the bus is going out the road. So, very nice game! Thanks very much :)

    BTW, the game has very good potential to have more levels: with more buses, with more schools, with buses and schools of different colors, with cars on the roads, etc.

    Also it could be a great game for the iPhone.

    the bus driver on the left at lvl5 still drives out of the road when you just leave the right arrow at the bottom show “up”
