Introduction
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thanks for taking a look at the guide. If you are here, you want to know what
the puzzle game is, where to find it or, most likely, how to complete a certain
stage. You can find all those answers and more in this guide. I decided to put 
together this guide since people were coming around fairly often asking how to
complete X stage. So here you have it - every solution to every stage. If you
have any questions or comments, please let me know. This guide is more or less
done, although I may add more detail and clarifications later if needed.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
What is the Puzzle Boy?
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The puzzle boy is a Manakin kid who lives in Asakusa that enjoys playing a 
puzzle game. When you encounter him, he will offer you a chance to play his
puzzle game which is on an arcade machine. Well, actually - puzzle boy refers
to the name of the game, but it's all the same.

The puzzle game is divided into twenty stages. Each stage consists of an 
assortment of moveable blocks, swivels and holes on a gridlike map. The goal
of each puzzle is to figure out how to get from your starting position to the
ending square by pushing and moving the blocks that are around you.

If you can complete all twenty stages in one sitting, you will be awarded
with the Geis Magatama. Completing this mini game and aquiring Geis is
essential to completing your Magatama collection. However, if you quit in the
middle of a game, you can not pick up where you left off. You must start all
over next time you try the game.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Prize: Geis Magatama
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
By completing all twenty stages of the puzzle game, you can get the Geis
Magatama. Here's all the info on this prize. Whether or not Geis will be
useful to you depends on what kind of character build you are using. It takes
up the 13th slot on your magatama menu.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Location of the Puzzle Boy Game
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
You can access the puzzle boy game in only one location: Asakusa. Once you get
through Ikebukuro tunnel and make it to Asakusa, you can play this mini game.
Here are directions to the puzzle boy starting from the center of town where
the terminal, shop and cathedral are. It should be easy to find.

1) Start in Nakamise-Douri (the place I described above.)
2) Head towards the back. When you get there, go right and pass up the little
   boy and through two sets of doors.
3) You are outside. Cross the bridge and move to the next building.
4) Go inside and down the stairs. Take the two right turns and you should
   find yourself in a hallway with three doors. The puzzle game is in the
   third room.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
How to Use This Walkthrough
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
First off, make sure that you never change the starting point of view by
swinging the camera around. If you do that, my directions are meaningless.
Read the text below to see how I will refer to the blocks in each stage.

*Orange Blocks*
Orange blocks appear through out this game. These blocks can by pushed in any
direction so long as you can get behind it to push it. They take up anywhere
from 1 to 9 spaces on the board. When I refer to blocks, I will tell you to
push the (3) block or push the (6) block. The number refers to how many spaces
the block takes up. It should be simple enough.

Examples:

o    <--- that is a (1) Block

ooo  <--- that is a (3) Block

ooo  <--- that is a (6) Block.
ooo


*Grey Swivel Blocks*
These are the blocks that you must push past to advance. You can flip them any
way you want so long as there is nothing in the way to impede their movement.
You can not move them from their original positions. Each swivel has a center
piece that turns and 1-4 blocks that extend from the center. I have names for
them and refer to them as:

Tiny Swivel - This is the swivel with just one block. It only takes up two
              spaces on the board. It is easy to flip past, but it is rare.
Long Swivel - This is a swivel that has two blocks extending off of it in
              opposite directions. It looks like a long bar.
L Swivel ---- This is the swivel with two blocks extending off of it at a right
              angle. It looks like a L. It may sometimes be upside down or
              flipped around, of course.
T Swivel ---- This is the swivel with three blocks coming off of it. Of course
              it looks like a T, but it can be upside down or pointing in a
              certain direction.
+ Swivel ---- This is the swivel with four blocks coming off of it. It is
              shaped like a cross no matter how you turn. 

"Pointing"
Sometimes I talk about making a swivel "point" in a certain direction. This
can apply only to the T swivel and the Tiny swivel. All this means is that you
should make the odd piece face the direction I tell you. I'll give you an
example below. Imagine the X is the center piece and the O are the blocks that
extend off of the center piece.

Examples:
XO  <--- Tiny swivel pointing right.

O   <--- Tiny swivel pointing up.
X

 O
OX  <--- T swivel pointing left
 O

O
XO  <--- T swivel pointing right.
O

"Horizontal" and "Vertical"
This should be self-explainitory, but just in case you get these two mixed up:

Horizontal - This means longways, left and right. Like this: ---
Vertical --- This means up and down. Like this: |

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2) Push the Long swivel so that it is horizontal.
3) Push the Block all the way to the left. 
4) Push the Long swivel so that it is vertical.
5) Push the block down one and over one into the hole.


========
Level 3
========
Goal: The goal is on the left.

1) Push the Block as far to the left as you can without moving it up or
   down at all.
2) Then push it up, then left, then up, then all the way left.
3) Push past the left + swivel so that you are below the Block.
4) Push the block up to drop it into the hole.


========
Level 4
========
Goal: The goal is on the left.

1) There are 3 Blocks lined up vertically. Push the top one and the bottom one
   to the left.
2) Push the remaining Block (the middle one) down or up to get it out of your 
   way. You should be able to pass the Blocks and get in between the L swivels.
3) Now push the first two blocks you moved. Move the top one all the way up 
   and the bottom one all the way down. You should be able to turn the L 
   swivels now.
4) Get next to the | swivel and push up in the top swivel to move it out of 
   the way.
5) Push down on the bottom swivel to move that one out of the way.
6) You should be able to push past the | swivel now.


========
Stage 5
========
You start out next to two + swivels. You can't move the right one at all. Your
goal is to free up the area around the right + swivel so you can move it 
around and move past it.

Goal: The goal is at the bottom right corner.

1) Push up and left on the left + swivel. You should be inbetween that swivel
   and the leftmost L swivel.
2) Push up past that L swivel.
3) Push right past the T swivel.
4) Push up past the L swivel that is now above you.
5) You should be next to the tiny swivel. Push it so that it is like this: --
   instead of upright. You should be standing above that T swivel you just
   pushed a minute ago.
6) Push down and flip it around so that it looks like and upside down T.
7) Go to the top right. Remember that L swivel you moved a minute ago. It
   should still be in the L position. Flip it so that it looks like a
   backwards L.
8) Go around that one to the right and flip the L swivel on right side of the
   screen. It should look like this after you flip it: L
9) Now go inbetween those two L swivels and push left on that sideways T block.
   You want it to be upside down like the other one.
10) Go directly left after that and to the leftmost L swivel. It should still
    look like an L. Push down on it so you are next to the left + swivel.
11) Push right past the + swivel and push up on the L swivel that should now
    be above you.
12) Now just head left and push down past that leftmost L swivel again and you
    should be able to get by both + swivels and to the goal.


========
Stage 6
========
Goal: The goal is on the left.

1) Push top (1) Block one space left and one space down into the hole.
2) Now you have two (1) Blocks left. Push the top one up, two spaces left and
   then go around it and push it one space to the right.
3) You can now push right past the T swivel and end up back on your starting
   side. The T should be upside down at this point.
4) Push the bottom (1) Block all the way to the left.
5) Get above the T swivel push down on it's right side. It should be pointing
   to the right now.
6) The other (1) Block should still be above the T swivel. Push left on it 
   once and then push it all the way down.


========
Stage 7
========
This one is really easy. Just ignore the (1) block for a minute and set your
swivels up first.

Goal: The goal is on the left.

1) There are two swivels. Push down on the T swivel so that it points to the
   right.
2) Now flip the L swivel around so that it looks like a L.
3) You should have one space open. It should be all the way to the left of both
   swivels. Stick your (1) block through there. All the way down.
4) Now just flip the L swivel around so you can get past it. You can do this by
   going around it and pushing it left so that it looks like a backwards L.


========
Stage 8
========
Getting tougher. You don't need the (4) blocks. You can't get rid of them, but
you need to get them out of your way.

Goal: The goal is at the top of the screen, over to the left side.

1) First get that (4) in front of you out of the way. Push it all the way to
   the right and to the bottom.
2) There are two (4) blocks left in your way. Go ahead and move them both up
   for now. We don't need them.
3) Now there are two (2) blocks we need to move around. For now I will refer
   to them as HOR and VER (for the HORizontal block on the left and the 
   VERtical block on the right.)
4) Go around and move HOR right 2 spaces, down 2 spaces, left 1 space, then go
   around the other side and move it right 2 spaces. It should be kind of
   above that first (4) you moved out of the way earlier.
5) Go over there to VER and push it left 2, down 1 and left 3 more. It's bottom
   right corner should now meet with the top left corner of HOR.
6) Push HOR left 2, then go around the other side and push it right 2.
   Basically, you want it right where it was, but with you on the other side.
7) Now push both HOR and VER up one space each.
8) Go over to VER and push it once to the left, go around it and push it back
   to where it was. The blocks should be in the same place, just with you on
   the other side.
9) Push VER down 2 spaces so that its top lines up with HOR's top.
10) You should now have a space to push those (4) blocks through. Get the one
    that is on the left side and push it down as far as it can go and then 
    as far as you can to the right. Once you do this, all (4) blocks should be
    on the right side of the screen.
11) Get under VER and push it all the way up. It should fall into the hole.
12) There is another (2) block up here. Just push it up once and it should be
    out of the way.
13) Now go back down and get HOR. It should be easy to manuver it into the
    hole up here.


========
Stage 9
========
You need to get that (3) block out of the way so you can move those swivels 
around. It should be easy.

Goal: The goal is at the bottom - on the left side.

1) Don't push any blocks yet. Play around with those top two T swivels. Flip
   them around so they are both upside down. It should be easy. Don't touch
   anything else until they are! If you have to go through them several times
   it's OK. Just keep doing it until they are both upside down.
2) Go down and get below that (3) block. Push it up one space and all the way
   to the right. (You'll go past a T swivel. Don't worry about it.)
3) At this point all of your swivels should be upside down T's. To get around
   just push through the T swivel on the top left. It doesn't matter how you
   push around it, just get above the (1) block.
4) Push the (1) block all the way down. You should be able to get past the T
   swivel on your right so you can push the block into the hole with no
   trouble.


========
Stage 10
========
This one has four (2) blocks and they are all vertical. It also has two (4)
blocks. You only need one of them, though. The trick is to get all of the (2)
blocks down in the large gap, but to leave a space at the left side of the 
big gap.

Goal: The goal should be at the very bottom-left corner.

1) Push that long swivel so that it is vertical.
2) Go around the bottom right (2) block and push it left two spaces so that it
   is next to the vertical swivel.
3) Go around to the top and push past the top right L swivel so that you can
   position yourself above the (2) block you just moved.
4) Push that same (2) block straight down and into the hole.
5) Now go back to the top and get that top right (2) block. Push it a little
   to the left and down to the bottom so you can drop it beside the other block
   you just dropped. Move some L swivels if you have to. I suggest dropping it
   on the left side. That will leave you one free space on the left of the big
   gap.
6) Go back to the top and grab the top-left (2) block. Push it right and down
   through that same path you've been using. Drop it next to the previous two
   block, but be sure to drop it on the right side.
7) You shouldn't have moved either of the (4) blocks yet, but now you can push
   the one on the left side up so you can get on top of the last (2) block.
8) There is a L swivel blocking your path. That L swivel is the one that is 
   right below the last (2) block. Flip it so that it looks like a backwards L.
9) You should now be able to get around and move the last (2) block to the 
   bottom. Remember to drop it on the right side!
10) At this point your big gap should have one empty space on the left side
    and three empty spaces on the right side. Now we need to move the top right
    (4) block down to the bottom. You'll have to get past 3 swivels: the long
    swivel and the top L swivels below it. Remember, you should not have moved
    this (4) block at all! Make sure the long swivel is vertical.
11) Make sure the L swivel that is cloest to the bottom of the map is flipped 
    around so that it looks like a 7 if it isn't already.
12) Now, push the (4) block on the right side left one space so that it is next
    to the long swivel (which should still be vertical.)
13) Now push it all the way down. That should be three spaces. 
14) Push through the long swivel, making it horizontal.
15) Push past the L swivel that's under the (4) block so you can get on the
    right side of it.
16) Push the (4) block left two spaces so that it runs into the bottom L swivel
    on the left side. That L swivel should still be facing like a backwards L.
17) Now just push the (4) block all the way down and left into the skinny gap.


========
Stage 11
========
The trickiest part is figuring out what to do with the blocks at the beginning.

Goal: The goal should be at the very bottom-left corner.

1) Push the bottom block up one so that it is next to the other one.
2) Go around to the top and push the right T swivel down so that both T swivels
   are pointing to the right.
3) Now go around to the other T swivel. Flip it around so that it is pointing
   in the opposite direction (which should be left.) Doing that should get you
   in between both swivels.
4) Now, back to the first T swivel. The one on the right. You should be able to
   easily flip it around so that it looks like a T.
5) Push that top block over to the left and into the hole.
6) Now flip that same T swivel so that it is upside down.
7) Push the last (1) block down and under the T swivel. You want to push it
   down one space and left three spaces. It should be right behind the left
   T swivel.
8) Flip that same (right) T swivel again so that it is pointing right.
9) Go up and around so you can get above the (1) block and push it all the way
   down. It should move only one space.
10) Now go around and flip both T swivels so they are upside down. Flip the 
    one on the left first and then the one on the right. Your path is open!

========
Stage 12
========
Only three blocks here and you only need to use one. You need to get those
two (3) blocks out of the way.

Goal: The goal is at the very bottom of the screen.

1) Push the (3) block on the right side down two spaces so that it is just
   above the hole.
2) Push the (3) block on the left side down one space and then over three
   spaces so that it aligns with the other (3) block. They should look like
   a big rectangle (6) block now.
3) Push the (2) block left two spaces and down three spaces so that it goes
   through the space on the left and it sits right below it.
4) Go around the other side and push the (2) block four spaces to the right
   so that all the right edges of all the blocks are lined up.
5) Now go around to the right side of all the blocks and push the middle one
   three spaces to the left.
6) Get below that same block and push it up one space.
7) Go around to that first (3) block that you moved in step 1. Push it up one
   and then all the way over to the left.
8) Push the (2) block all the way down and left into the hole.


========
Stage 13
========
It's starting to get more confusing now. You have to play with the top (3)
block so you can get the little (1) block up there around it twice. Don't mess
with the blocks at the bottom until you are finished with the blocks at the
top.

Goal: The goal is at the very left side of the screen.

1) Go to the top and push the top (3) block left one space.
2) There should be a horizontal (2) close to you. Push it down one space.
3) Now push the (1) block up one, right two and down one. It should end up
   on the opposite side of the hole it was next to.
4) Go to that top (3) block again and push it all the way to the right.
5) Get under that horizontal (2) block you moved earlier and push it up 3 
   spaces until it runs into that (3) block up there.
6) Now go back around the other side so you can push it all the way to the
   left.
7) Now push it down. It should only be able to move one space.
8) Go back to that same (1) block you moved earlier. Push it up one and left 
   four spaces so that it almost touches the wall.
9) Walk around the (1) block and push it right one and all the way down. Drop
   it in that hole next to you.
10) Now move the bottom (3) block to the right.
11) Now you can push that vertical (2) block all the way to the left and up
    one into that hole.

========
Stage 14
========
There are a lot of holes here, but basically, it just amounts to matching up
the right sized block to the right sized hole.

Goal: The goal is at the bottom of the screen.

1) You start next to a huge (6) block. You need to move it out of that space
   you are in. You can do this by moving it down two spaces, then going around
   and pushing it left one space. Get under it and push it back up again until
   you have enough space to move around it and get on top of it.
2) When you get on top of it, you should be able to push it down by walking
   over the small space in the middle. Push it down seven spaces so you can 
   get under it.
3) Now push it up two, left two, up one and then left one. That should drop it
   in the hole next to the other (6) block and leave some space so you can get
   behind that new (6) block.
4) Get on the left side of the new (6) block and push it right six spaces.
5) Push it up one space and then go around above it and push it left one space.
6) Now you can push it down by walking over that same small space in the 
   middle that you walked over earlier. Push it down four spaces.
7) And then push it right until it falls into the hole.
8) There is a tall (3) block there. Just push it all the way to the left as 
   far as it can go and then down into the hole.
9) Now you have a horizontal (3) block next to you. You should be able to 
   easily manuver it to the hole at the top-right by pushing it up one, right
   three, up five, all the way to the right and then up into the hole.
10) Now you have a square (4) block. Move it all the way down, three spaces
    to the left and then all the way down into the hole.
11) Now you are next to the vertical (2) block. Move it left three, up four
    left three, up five and left three. It should fall into the hole.
12) Now the last block. It is a horizontal (2) block. Move it down one, right
    four, all the way down, right three, down two and left one - into the hole.

========
Stage 15
========
There is a huge (9) block in your way. The trick is to push the two smaller
blocks in the hole first and just keep the (9) block out of the way. Use the
(9) block last. In this stage, I will refer to the swivels by their directions.
For example, swivel Top Right will just be called "top-right."

Goal: The goal should be at the left side of the screen.

1) First push the (9) block one space left. 
2) Flip Bottom-Left so that it looks like a 7.
3) Push past Top-Right and push the (9) block down three spaces.
4) Make sure Bottom-Right looks like a backwards L. You should not have touched
   it at all so it should. If for some reason it doesn't, UNDO and fix it.
5) Now go to the top and push the (2) block up there all the way to the back
   so you can get around it and push it all the way to the front. Easy.
6) Slip it between all the swivels and into the hole. Put it in the middle.
7) Flip both top swivels so they both look like a 7.
8) Now push past Bottom-Right and move (9) block almost all the way to the top.
   Be sure to leave at least one space up there so you can move it back down.
9) Take a moment to make sure Top-Right looks like a 7 like I said. If it
   doesn't, UNDO and make it right.
10) Flip Bottom-Left around so it looks like a L.
11) Go get that bottom (2) block and stick it in the gap. Just like you did 
    for the other (2) block.
12) With both (2) blocks in the gap, flip Bottom-Left so that it looks like a
    7 and flip Bottom-Right so that it looks like a backwards L.
13) Push past Top-Right and get above the (9) block. Push it down five spaces.
14) Flip Top-Left so that it looks like a L.
15) Push past Bottom-Right and move (9) block up a few spaces. You should have
    a clear path to the hole now. Drop it in there. That completes the path.
16) Now you have 3 (2) blocks stacked on eachother. Push both the top one and
    the bottom one all the way to the left.
17) Push the middle one out of the way and get your crystal!


========
Stage 16
========

Goal: The goal should be all the way on the left side of the screen.

1) There are five (1) blocks next to where you start. Move the bottom one down
   one space.
2) There is another block almost right next to you. Move it left two spaces. At
   this point you will have moved the bottom two blocks and left the other
   three alone.
3) Get under those two (1) blocks that you did not move. There should be a L
   swivel that looks like a backwards 7 right below you. Push through it and
   go all the way down to the bottom.
4) There is another L swivel next to you now. Push up on it so that it looks
   like an L. You should have access to the T swivel down there.
5) Push past the T swivel's bottom part so that when you push past it, it flips
   and looks like a T.
6) Push down on the L swivel you are next to.
7) Push past both tiny swivels to your right, but flip the second tiny swivel
   so that it's pointing up.
8) You should be able to get up to that first swivel you pushed in step 3. Push
   right past it. It should look like a backwards 7.
9) Step down once and head left. That should push you past the swivel right
   below it.
10) Take two steps up (putting you right below a orange block) and head all
    the way to the left as far as you can go. You should be above that T
    swivel you moved earlier.
11) Push down on the left side of the T swivel, making it point right.
12) Walk over to the (1) block to your left, but DON'T PUSH IT.
13) Down one step and left through the L swivel. The path is clear.


========
Stage 17
========
You will have to go around and through the + swivels a lot. Remember that as
you read this.

Goal: The goal is at the bottom left side of the screen.

1) Head right and push past the T swivel. Don't worry about its position.
2) Walk over to the top L swivel. Flip it around so it looks like a L.
3) Push through the top + swivel and get on the right side of that (1) block
   so you can push it three spaces left.
4) The L swivel that is next to you needs to be flipped so it looks like a
   backwards 7. Do this by going back through the top + swivel and getting
   above the L swivel to push down on it.
5) Go around so you can get on top of the (1) block. Push it all the way down.
   That should be four spaces.
6) There is now a T swivel next to you that is pointing right. You need to flip
   it so that it is upside down. Do this by going around through both + swivels
   and getting on the right side of it. Push through the top part to flip it
   upside down.
7) There is a L swivel to the left of your (1) block. Flip it so that it looks
   like a 7.
8) Make your way all the way around the board again so you can get on the
   right side of the block. You need to push it left two spaces.
9) Now go all the way around again and get above the block. Push it down two
   spaces.
10) Push through the L swivel and go around the block so you can push it into
    the hole.


========
Stage 18
========
This takes less moves than you might think. In this puzzle, we are going to
move the swivels around in sets of two.

Goal: The goal should be at the bottom.

1) You start stuck in between two L swivels. Push up on the top one so that it
   looks like a L.
2) Push left on the other one so that it looks like a 7. You are finished
   messing with those two. Leave them alone. On to the next set.
3) Head over to the left side. There is a L swivel there and a T swivel. Flip
   the L swivel so that it looks like a backwards L.
4) Flip the T swivel so that it points left.
5) Go around and flip the L swivel so that it looks like a L.
6) Go around and down so you can flip the T swivel. Make it an upside down T.
   We are done with those two. Leave them alone. On to the next two.
7) Head to the right side. There is another L and another T swivel. Push the
   L swivel so that it looks like a L.
8) Push past the T swivel and get next to the (3) block.
9) Push the (3) block all the way to the left.

========
Stage 19
========
This one is probably the toughest one. It took me like 30 minutes to figure it
out the first time. Just remember not to use your (1) blocks without purpose.
Each (1) block you place in a hole *must* lead to the goal, otherwise it is
wasted.

Goal: The goal should be at the bottom-left of the screen.

1) You start next to two tiny swivels. Just go right as far as you can. You
   will run into a (2) block. Plow through it and push it into the hole.
2) Look below you. There is a (3) block. Push it down as far as you can. That
   should be three spaces.
3) There is a (1) block in the top right corner. Push it down until it falls
   into a hole.
4) Push that (3) block all the way back up.
5) There is a (1) block next to the (3) block. Push it all the way up and to
   the right. You should put it in the exact spot that first (1) block was in 
   before you moved it.
6) Go to the (2) block in the middle. Push it right two spaces.
7) Push through the L swivel and get above the (2) block. Push it down one, 
   right one, then down one again. That should drop it into a hole.
8) Take a moment to make sure the T swivel on the right is turned so that it
   looks like a T. If not, fix it.
9) Now head to the left side of the map. Push past the T swivel there and get
   below the big (6) block. Push it up one space.
10) Flip that same T swivel around so that it is upside down and you are below
    it. Just keep flipping it until you get it right.
11) Now you need to get that (1) block that is there past the T swivel and
    move it past (under) the (6) block. To do this, get below the (1) block
    and move it up one, right two and then up one. Now push up on the right
    side of the T swivel to get next to the (1) block. Move the (1) block all
    the way to the right and into the hole.
12) Flip the right T swivel so that it is pointing left.
13) Move the (3) block down three and go around it so you can push it up one
    and then left one.
14) Remember that (1) block you left at the top? Now you can push it all the
    way down and into a hole.
15) Go ahead and move the (3) block all the way to the right so it sits in that
    little alcove on the right side of the screen just to get it out of the
    way. 
16) Flip both T swivels so they point to the right.
17) There are two (1) blocks left. They are in the upper-left corner. Get the
    left one and push it down six spaces.
18) Push right through the T swivel (forcing it to look like and upside down
    T.)
19) Get next to that (1) block you just moved and push it right one, up one, 
    right two and up one. Push the T swivel out of the way so you can push
    this block all the way to the right. It should not hit the wall. It should
    run into the T swivel over there that is pointing right.
20) Get above the (1) block and push it all the way down. Slide it into the
    hole. One to go. Go past the swivel if you have to.
21) Fix the T swivel on the right side so that it is pointing right again.
22) Go to the last (1) block and push it right two.
23) Look at those two tiny swivels right there. Flip the top one so that it is
    pointing up.
24) Flip the L swivel right there so that it looks like a backwards L.
25) Push the (1) block down one, right three and all the way down.
26) Go around and throw that block into the hole! 


========
Stage 20
========
There is only one T swivel and one L swivel in this level. There are 3 tiny
swivels, but we are not going to use the one at the very bottom at all. So
remember - as far as these instructions go - IGNORE IT! You do not need to
touch it at all.

Goal: The goal should be in the bottom-left corner.

1) When you start, move straight down and force that first block into the hole.
2) Flip the L swivel so you can walk past it without disturbing any of the (1)
   blocks.
3) Get next to the (1) block at the very bottom. Push it one space right so
   that it falls into the hole.
4) Go to the top and push the top tiny swivel so that it points left.
5) Push that upper-left (1) block over left one space.
6) Go to that (1) block in between the tiny swivels. Push it right one space.
7) Push both tiny swivels so that the top one points up and the bottom one
   points down.
8) Go around the bottom and right so you can flip the L swivel so that it
   looks like a backwards L.
9) There should be a (1) block to your left. The one that is in the middle of
   those tiny swivels. Push it left one space.
10) Go around bottom again and get under that same (1) block. Make you that
    you don't flip the L swivel on the way through. Push it up once so you can 
    get above it and then push it down five spaces.
11) Now, go and flip the L swivel so that it looks like and L.
12) Flip both of the tiny swivels so that the top one points left and the
    bottom one points to the right.
13) Get under that (1) block at the bottom - the one you just moved five spaces
    - and push it up one space.
14) Head left and up to get to the T swivel. Push up on it so you can get next
    to the (1) block that is up there.
15) Push the (1) block right two spaces.
16) Flip the T swivel around so you can get past it on the right side and back
    to that same (1) block you've been pushing all over the place. (It should
    be the one that is roughly in the middle of the screen now.)
17) Push the (1) block all the way to the left.
18) Go up to that T swivel and flip past it so you can get above that same (1)
    block and push it in the hole.
19) Go to that (1) block that is right below the L swivel. Move it all the way
    to the left.
20) Circle around to that T swivel, making sure not to disturb anything. Flip
    it around so you can get past it on the right side again. You should be
    above the (1) block you just moved.
21) Push the (1) block down one and all the way to the left.
22) Use the T swivel to get above that same (1) block and push it into the
    hole. There are three blocks remaining.
23) Go back to the tiny swivels. Flip the bottom one so that it points up and
    flip the L swivel so that it looks like a backwards L.
24) Go to the (1) block at the bottom. Push it right one and up two spaces.
25) Circle around and push up on the L swivel so you can get above it. Flip it
    again so you can get on the right side of that (1) block you just moved.
26) Push the (1) block all the way to the left.
27) Circle around and go through the T swivel again so you can get above that
    (1) block.
28) This should be familiar by now. Push the (1) block down one and all the way
    to the left. Use the T swivel again to drop it into the hole. There are now
    only two blocks left. They are both at the top.
29) Go over to the L swivel and flip it so that it looks like a L.
30) Push the (1) block on the left one space to the left.
31) Flip the tiny swivels so that they both point down.
32) Use the T swivel to get on the left side of that (1) block you just moved.
    Push it one space to the right.
33) Go down and around so you can get above that same (1) block. Don't touch
    anything else.
34) Push the (1) block down five spaces.
35) You should be next to the bottom tiny swivel. Flip it so that it points
    to the right.
36) Push the (1) block all the way to the left and use the T swivel to get
    above it so you can push it into the hole. One left.
37) Walk all the way to the last (1) block in the top right corner and get
    beside it. Push it left three spaces and down five, then all the way to
    the left.
38) Use the T swivel to drop it into the hole and head towards the goal.

I made most of this guide myself, from scratch. (Let's face it, though - it's 
not overly difficult.) So, all the solutions in this guide are my solutions -
EXCEPT - the solutions to puzzles 16 and 18. Although I solved these puzzles
on my own, I used the Doublejump guidebook to figure out the most efficient
method to get through the puzzle. I didn't want to write my own method, which
basically was just flipping stuff until I got through. :P So thanks to guys at
DJ for that. And of course, thanks to all the guys at Atlus for making and
publishing such an awesome game.
