Reverse 1999 AR-3 Answer in a Bottle Solution

Reverse 1999 is a mobile game filled with intriguing puzzles that put your brain to the test in unexpected ways. The core idea is to work backward – you start with an outcome and have to figure out the steps that led to it. This adds a whole new layer of challenge to classic logic puzzles!

AR-3: Answer in a Bottle Puzzle

One of the puzzles you’ll encounter in the AR-3 stage is the “Answer in a Bottle”. It’s a bit of a head-scratcher at first, but with a bit of outside-the-box thinking, you’ll crack it in no time. Here’s the setup:

  • You control a little critter who absolutely loves grapes.
  • Your task is to help the critter get 12 grapes to a cave 6 meters away.
  • Problem is, this critter can only hold 6 grapes at a time and can only move 3 meters while carrying them.
  • Worse, the critter gets hungry on the journey, eating 3 grapes before reaching the cave!

That leaves you to figure out how to get any grapes to the cave without this greedy (but adorable) creature gobbling them up!

Like most Reverse 1999 challenges, you’ll need to think in reverse. Here’s how to solve it:

  1. Start at the End: Imagine 6 grapes already sitting at the cave entrance. How did they get there?
  2. One Trip Back: If the critter can only move 3 meters with grapes and has to eat 3 for fuel, it carried 6 grapes towards the cave for those last 3 meters.
  3. Another Load: Where did those 6 grapes come from? The critter must’ve dropped them off 3 meters back to go get another load from the grape pile.
  4. To the Start: To carry the initial 6 grapes towards the cave, you need to start with a full load from the grape pile and move 3 meters forward.

Instructions for the Critter

Now that you understand the logic, you need actions in the game:

  1. Load Up: Tell the critter to take 6 grapes from the pile.
  2. Short Hop Forward: Make the critter move 3 meters with the grapes.
  3. Drop Off: Have the critter leave those 6 grapes on the ground.
  4. Back for Seconds: Send the critter back to the grape pile.
  5. Repeat Steps 1 – 3: Get 6 more grapes, move forward, and drop them off with the other pile.
  6. Final Delivery: Now there are 12 grapes waiting just 3 meters from the cave. Have the critter pick up 6, and walk the final distance, munching 3 on the way. Victory!

Final Words

Sometimes drawing the puzzle helps you see solutions more clearly. Many puzzles in Reverse 1999 have surprisingly simple solutions once you’re thinking in the right direction. If you get stuck, don’t be afraid to experiment with different actions, even if they don’t seem logical at first.
