For the people with no patience: connect 5 - perfect solution
So, we finally got into town. Here we'd like to listen to the band standing here of course. But these
missing their instruments or have other problems with what's already there. So it's one of our jobs to fix the band by getting them
some instruments and repairing the other instruments. Well, enter the oilpub at first. It's hard to miss, as the neon
advertisment is showing you where
While you're here, just peep into the next room. Look at that. The three bad guys all together. But we can't do
anything about them. At least not now.
So get the flycatcher
that is hanging around here in front of the door to the next room and get out of the oilpub.
There are enough flys
flying above the stinky keg in front of the oilpub. Catch some of them with the flycatcher. Now
get back into the pub and release the flys onto the barkeeper. He is so distracted now that you can drag out the oil
barrel and he won't even notice. The barrel makes a good drum and the drummer is happy and the robot shakes his
shiny metal booty.
So, let's face one of the meanest riddles in machinarium. Get back into the pub and challenge the sitting robot for
a game of connect five. The rules are that you win if you have 5 of your parts in a row, no matter if straight or
diagonal and you can move wherever you want (unlike connect four, where you have to insert from the top).
This old guy is a tough guy for this game but you can beat him. At first, don't let him get 4 in a row, so once he has
3 in a row place one of your tokens to block him. Then you build diamonds all over the playfield, always keep an eye on
you opponent and his rows and sooner or later you'll have built a catch-22 for him like in the picture below here.
Then it should be obvious what to do next...

Look at the picture below.
The X marks the spot, no, wait, wrong adventure, it marks your opponent's first move. So place your first token directly above his screw. After that follow the order of
the numbers in the picture. This should work just fine.

. Just click on Spiel starten
. This game is not about who is first
to have 5 in a row but who has the most 5 in a row
Once the other robot lost, he is very pissed and beats up the table. The screws
fly all through the
pub. Collect all 5
of them. In case you are having trouble finding the 5 screws this picture of the
location of the 5 screws might come in handy.
So pick up these 5 screws, get outside of the pub and give them to the saxophone player. This guy will be happy and play just for
Seems like the old lady doesn't like good music, as she throws a flowerpot after you and the music. Again. But this
time there is even a small sunflower plant
inside the flowerpot. Pick it up and then climb up the stairs, as there is nothing you can do
here for the moment.
