    Ahoy! If you’re stuck, here’s a guide for ya!

    Hints, Solutions & Achievements

    Achievements

    There are no missable achievements. So sit back and relax with this chill puzzle game.

    Furthermore, the ultimate achievement does no require you to complete every single level, or even complete any bonus challenging level. Just play the main game and you can get all the achievements.

    Out of 10 achievements, the first 6 are story related. The remaining are hidden achievements that you may try to guess what to do in order to unlock them.

    The Basics

    • Complete 6/10 levels in Applications.

    Drift Master

    • Complete 6/12 levels in Real World Currents.

    No Hazard for me

    • Complete 6/9 levels in Live Hazards.

    Blankin’ Amazing

    • Complete 6/9 levels in What the Blank.

    Investor Feedback

    • Complete 4/6 levels in Investor Meet.

    Lessons Learnt

    • Complete all levels in Investor Meet and roll the credit

    Wheels on the Bus

    • … go round and round. Round and round, round and round.

    Set up a simulation that loop. Like having a ship head into the current.

    Near, Far, Wherever you are

    Having a ship crash into an iceberg. Can be done as soon as in Situational Awareness.

    Meticulous

    • Just run every pre-solved ultra-complicated levels in Drift/Hazard/Blank notes.

    End of the line

    • Easily done alongside with Wheels on the Bus. Just let the simulator run out of steps. Otherwise, pick any level and, don’t complete the level, press the play button again and again until it clock 99 steps.

    Grid System

    Although it is easier to just post images, I think it is nicer to introduce a grid system to represent cell’s position. Since this game use 8×8 square grid like chess (and Into the Breach), it is natural to label them originating from the lowest cell in the middle. With the right side of the board having Latin alphabets, while the left side having Hindu-Arabic numeral. Like this:

    For clarification, in the above image:

    • the pirate ship (black ship) is at F5,
    • the pirate port (blank anchor) is at B8,
    • the merchant ship (white-yellow ship) is at D1,
    • the merchant port (yellow coin) is at G8.

    Note that some level have different grid size (e.g. 6×6). Just remember that the lowest cell is always A1. Going up-right increasing the alphabet. Going up-left increasing the numeral.

    There are 4 type of command tiles: Turn Left (ccw), Turn Right (clockwise), Stop Here, and Blank. I’ll abbreviate them as just L, R, S, B respectively.

    The solution will be format as {tile: positions}. For example (not above solution) “R A3 D1; S F7” means place two turn right tiles at A3 and D1, and place a stop tile at F7.

    Basic Features

    There are 7 basic levels, which teach almost all the fundamental aspect of the puzzle. (sorry bro, no achievement for completing this chapter.)

    Pirate Port

    • Note: You can get the hidden achievement, End of the line, as soon as the first level in the game! (with lots of mouse clicks / key presses.)

    Drift/Hazard/Blank Notes (Special Bonus)

    There are 3/2/4 “ultra-complicated” pre-solved levels in these chapters. So just sit back and relax, press the play button, and watch the scenario played-out.

    Although there are no need to solve these levels yourself. It is mandatory to “finish” each scenario at least once in order to unlock the Meticulous achievement.

    And, ironically, I find that spectating these almost incomprehensible solutions help me solve bonus levels a lot better. So I decide to put the section here before those “More” sections!

    Since these note chapters are unlocked once you solve 6 levels of their corresponding campaign chapter. I think it’s a good idea to take a look at these notes asap to gain knowledge, before going back to tackle harder levels.

    By the way, if you’re feeling spicy, you may try solving these levels by yourself! Just open the level, move those pre-solved tiles out of the way, forget everything you saw, then solve it. Just remember that by clicking “Reset” button (not “Clear” anymore), or simply exit and re-enter the level will move those tiles back to the correct position… (and, have I told you already? those are just complicated solutions, not hardest solution… some not even hard, just red herring!)

    Dizzying

    • Hint 1: Surprisingly, solve this level by yourself is actually easier than it looks!
    • Hint 2: No need to use all tiles, just 1 left turn and 1 right turn.
    • Hint 3: Get out of the current asap and go right into the port.
    • Reasonable solution: L D5; R F3
    • Developer’s solution: L C4 D6; R D5 F3

    Back n Forth

    • Hint 1: The current will push tiles back and forth. Utilize it!
    • Hint 2: It’s actually no harder than “J Spin”. You just have to wait a little longer.
    • Developer’s solution: S D5; L E4, which is reasonable.

    Queue Cutters

    • Hint 1: Again, solving this one is easier than it seems.
    • Hint 2: Need only 1 left turn and 2 right turns.
    • Hint 3: Ignore the current (except the first inevitable one).
    • Hint 4: Let the pirate ship go straight to the port.
    • Hint 5: Let the pirate ship carry a left tile, so she will drop it for following ships.
    • Reasonable solution: R H2 H5; L C4
    • Developer’s solution: L E1 H1 D6; R D8 G8; S F2 F5

    Double Trouble

    • Developer’s solution: L D4 E5 E6; R E4 D5

    Longcut

    • Hint 1: Take the merchant ship to the port asap. No lighthouse visiting!
    • Hint 2: That’s mean the merchant ship use up all 2 left tiles.
    • Hint 3: Let the pirate ship visit the lighthouse.
    • Hint 4: Make the pirate ship cross the current and use the left over left tile.

    Elaboration

    • Hint 1: You want to make a right turn. But there are no right tile.

    • Hint 3: You have to fight the current with blank tile to go to lighthouses.
    • Hint 4: Finally, you can make a left turn to the port!
    • Developer’s solution: L B4 F2; B F3 D6, which is reasonable.

    Whirled

    • Hint 1: Only one tile is needed!
    • Hint 2: It is the right tile!
    • Reasonable solution: R D4
    • Developer’s solution: B B1 D4; R C3; L D3

    Virtuous

    • Hint 1: We have 1 left turn and 1 right turn. And the ports need each of them.
    • Hint 2: It is crucial to make both ship face downward of the current (low-right).
    • Hint 3: The pirate ship must take the lead. Securing the right turn now.
    • Hint 4: After going into the current, the pirate ship must stop 1. she will not go too fast and crashed by the current later 2. she can reuse her carried right turn.

    • Developer’s solution: S D5 E6; R E7; B E8; L F8, which is reasonable.

    Sticky Nose

    • Hint 1: Only 1 left tile and 2 right tiles.
