Tinker Video Guide

This video guide consists of compilations of levels and then below are links to each level separately.

In the compilation videos, some levels are completed with a technique called tapping, holding down the key is slower then tapping the key, so some of the quicker/easier ways to solve a puzzle require tapping. If you can't seem to get the hang of this technique, check the links below for a roundabout solution.

Most notable for the tapping solutions are:
Set 1 Level 10
Set 1 Level 20
Set 3 Level 14
Set 7 Level 9

Tutorials 1-20

Set 1 Levels 1-10:

Set 1 Levels 11-20:

Set 2 Levels 1-20

Set 3 Levels 1-10

Set 3 Levels 11-20

Set 4 Levels 1-10

Set 4 Levels 11-20

Set 5 Levels 1-10

Set 5 Levels 11-20

Set 6 Levels 1-10

Set 6 Levels 11-20

Set 7 Levels 1-6:

Set 7 Levels 7-13

Set 7 Levels 14-20

A Special Thanks to
Lavoaster for his help on a easier solution to Set 7 Level 9
Infinitism for his help on Set 6
zero_0ptix for his help on Set 3, Set 5, and Set 6
Wii187 For his help on Set 3, Set 4, and Set 5.
lzAvol for his help on Set 3, Set 4, Set 5, Set 6 and his dedication on Set 4.

If any videos have inaccuracies (wrong order, over par) or they have died, please tell me and they will be corrected in a timely manner

It's very easy, you don't actually have to activate the switches, they are just there to trick you because you can push stacked blocks, so just push them ontop of the buttons, follow a path with not to many turns and you can get it easy.

The in-game solutions is only for the tutorial levels I believe, and that won't show you how to get perfect.

Very true. Also, the playthrough of Set 1 Level 12 is not on par.

Really, crumb, that means I'll Have to make a video of level 11-20...

If anyone else spots problems with sets 1-2, tell me, i solved them on my own without capturing them, so i thought i could cheat, but by the looks of it, I can't =(

Also, if anyone has the other sets of solutions for sets 3 and up, I'll gladly post them and give you full credit.

If your asking if Tinker saves your game as a video, the answer is no, you have to use a video capture software to record what you do, then use some piece of video editing software to cut the video so it's watchable/understandable

Then what is the point of using the in-game recorder?

Haha, now I feel like a tool, sigh, this will make my life so much better than the desktop recorder, oh, and your answer is here:

Record button
Starts recording a video of the game. The button changes to a red Stop Recording button. The recording stops when you click the Stop Recording button, when you complete the level, or when the recording time limit of five minutes is reached. Videos are saved in the Videos folder, in your user profile.


*note, the quality doesn't seem very good...

The video for Set 1, Level 8 shows Tinker finishing with 25 energy. The par is 31.

EDIT: And Set 1, Level 9 also misses par energy.

yea level 8 is a tricky one to get the right amount of energy on. i'm still trying to figure it out.

thanks for your dedication compgeek! i, and we all, appreciate it.

edit: actually i just found a handy youtube video on how to do level 8. 9 as well. it's an individual level video though, not the whole set.

Nice guide, has helped me get through some of the last puzzles on first set that I was stuck on. Should be nice when it's fully finished with all the videos. Thanks

OK, if noone has noticed I started putting links up to each level, making it easier to find if your stuck, but don't want to see all the solutions, so if any are missynched or wrong video altogether please do tell me, Thanks Wii for your submission, but unfortunlatly i had already created one for set 3 1-10, but if people feel yours is better I'll gladly post yours up instead of mine =)
