Yes and no. As there is no wall, so no place to hide, there were a lot of thinkings about the possible routes that came to my mind. So I observed and tested different ways to start the level to check which red blobs could be sedated by the green blobs. I found really quickly how to get all the diamonds on the right of the screen. Needed more time for the second half .
Funnily, to find the full route, I needed bit less testing than for level 36 or for level 37 (especially because, on level 37, I had to restart my thinking to find another route when I finished it and saw that you had to kill 2 reds and 2 blues to get a perfect. Grrrr..... ).

Finding a road for levels 33 & 38 was of similar difficulty for me. I spent more time finding a road for the level 35 for example.


@capehorn & @Tsak : feel free to post your routes as well if they differ from mine.

By the way Tsak, is it on purpose that no spikes are coming out of the grids ?

Yes, of course. Other levels also have grids with no spikes, f.e. level 33. One funny detail is that if a blob is killed on a grid tile it leaves no blood stain.

Yes, I was also thinking about 33, but maybe I need to expand on my question.

Were there any spikes coming out of the grids initially ?
Maybe during the test phase it was decided not to use the spikes anymore because the level was becoming too difficult ?

Surely because the blood flows through the holes

No, there was no plan for spikes in those levels in the first place. The grids are there just as a floor tile variation.

>Surely because the blood flows through the holes

Yup

No mood for Celtic Heart or Minskies Furballs tonight so gave a go to Worthy

Here is my level 39 :
I have to say that contrary to my first impression, I found it as not being so hard.
Now all I have to do is to go and pull the big bad guy's ears

It's similar in principle. But it's been aeons since I last tried that level though. I might post a few alternative takes at some point here
