The rules are pretty much the same for those who have played the previous editions of Klueless. But there are a few more things we have added that we feel might have been missed out on earlier occasions. Hence, irrespective of whether you are a Klueless veteran or a new player, we request that you kindly take a moment to read the wall of text that follows...
The first rule of Klueless is you do NOT talk about Klueless...
Naah, just kidding! We most definitely want you to recommend it to those around you. The actual bit starts from here...
The game play involves getting to the next level by whatever means necessary.
There are mainly 3 ways by which you can get across levels
Entering the answer in the text box
Changing the URL in the address bar
Clicking on various objects on the page
Answers are not case sensitive. In case the answer contains more than one word, do not forget to include spaces. We try to cover most possible answers to a level, but do try out different combinations of answers if we might have missed some out (we're human after all). Answers with multiple words will contain a space between them, so do take care of the same
Most levels will require some amount of lateral thinking combined with some help from our good ol' friend Google :). Images can also be reverse-searched using Google/Tineye
Usually, the clues for each level can be found in:
Pictures on the level (and their names!)
Page source. (Right click and use View Page Source)
Some amount of binary (.doc, .jpg etc.) download/manipulation may be required to get the hint to next level
There may be answers which lead you down the wrong path so watch out!
Please note: Not every one of these might be a clue. We promise to make a conscious effort to mislead you
We have observed, based on experiences from the previous versions of Klueless, that in spite of getting the right answers, players refuse to enter them and try them out! We have no restrictions on the number of attempts, so do abuse this rule outrightly
In case there is a lag between your post on the blog/e-mail and us replying, it's not because we don't like your screen name or might have met you in real-life and disliked your personality. It is simply because
The sheer number of comments that need to be moderated makes it impossible to give an immediate response
The hints for levels might already have been posted against previous player requests. We implore you to do a quick run through the page before posting your queries
Please do not share the answers on personal blogs/websites or other forums. It is quite possible that the other person may finish before you
Clues will be provided only on the official blog (link at the top of every level) and not on the Facebook page
You may contact us at kluelessx [at] gmail [dot] com when you get desperate (only towards the fag end of the game)
As the difficulty levels increase, so does our reluctance to give out obvious clues. In case we find many players to be stuck at certain levels, a blatant push will be provided from our end. But the later levels of the game are made in such a way that players will have to spend some time wrapping their head around the clues, rather than expect the same to be solved in a matter of minutes
Do try your best, and be a little patient as far as hints are concerned
