Obviously, I found out my own solution to level 2 and even finished the whole game. What is constantly puzzling me, is the hint from the level description:

  Well, it looks like they're on to us. The path isn't as
  clear as I thought it'd be. But no matter - four clever
  characters should be enough to erase all their tricks.

The hint specifically mentions four characters

Did someone solve it by using only 4 characters? because my solution looks like this:

var player = map.getPlayer();
map.placeObject(player.getX()+2, player.getY(), 'exit');

These are the four characters you're looking for

/* */

The hint was very specific about "erasing all their tricks"

That never occurred to me but it's awesome. – Studoku Apr 18 '14 at 10:06
@PavelJanicek Don't beat yourself over it - there really is no right answer here, and half the fun of the game is to work out ways to solve a level in ways the designers never intended for them to be solved. My personal favourite is when I beat level 13 using a D-pad instead of a pathfinding algorithm - – Private Pansy Apr 18 '14 at 11:17
@PrivatePansy I was kinda hoping for a level that would subvert such tricks :-) – Jan Dvorak Apr 18 '14 at 14:42
I used six: if(0){ } – Orc JMR Nov 26 '14 at 9:37
