I'm stuck on the World 4 version of Hunt. I don't want a walkthrough; I don't even want a hint. (Please don't offer a hint.) I just want to know whether it's impossible without doing something else first to alter the puzzle, because it sure looks impossible to me: as far as I can tell, the rightmost guy will always be alive when you get to the gate. Just kidding; I got it.

It's possible to beat all the levels without doing something else first. – Wipqozn Aug 10 '11 at 23:17
@Wipqozn while it is possible to beat every level without doing something else, OP is referring to grabbing the puzzle piece in the level. Some puzzle pieces in the game cannot be obtained the first pass through (the specific example that comes to mind for me is early on in the game, world not disclosed to avoid spoilers). – Kotsu Aug 10 '11 at 23:21
@Kotsu: if you're thinking of the example I'm thinking of, that's what had me worried. – Qiaochu Yuan Aug 10 '11 at 23:23
@Kotsu yeah that occurs to me now as well, I'm quite certain that is the only instance though. – Wipqozn Aug 11 '11 at 11:56
@Wipqozn As far as puzzle pieces are concerned, it's the only instance, yes. – user56 Aug 11 '11 at 12:34

No, this is completely possible to do without doing anything else outside the level. I was skeptical at first as well, but you just have to think about it a bit.

As requested, no hint has been given.

Thanks! That's all I wanted to hear. – Qiaochu Yuan Aug 10 '11 at 23:17
If this was a sufficient answer to your question, an "accept" would be appreciated ;). – Kotsu Aug 10 '11 at 23:19
If an answer is accepted, it means it has been useful, and thus could be considered a hint. Shall we agree to disagree? – Wok Jan 20 '12 at 19:15
