I'm a little stuck on level 8 of vim adventures with the shoot the moon puzzle. I've removed the bottom 3 lines with dG and also done a replace at the top.

what I'm left with is "shoot for the moon, even if you miss, you'll have a land among the stone pill ars."

(bold parts are the text to delete).

I've tried everything like attempting to delete with dw, dW, db, dB, de, dE, pressing x repeatedly but no luck.

Could I have missed something out?

I haven't played this level, but can you use the t motion at this point? If so, you could position the cursor at the beginning of have a and use dtl to delete to the next l. (Likewise with one pill and dta)
