Full Version: Sandford Village Puzzle Game

So remember how we were all obssessed with the M&M's Dark Movies puzzle at Halloween? Good times.

There's another one of them thar head scratchers up at the Hot Fuzz site (well, on the UK version anyway, it's not live on the US site yet.) Go to "Sandford Village" on the main menu page. 30 cop films hidden in the image.




Stuck at 20. I really ought to get some work done....

(Oh, and annoyingly you can't save your game. Really, who's going to get all these in one go? Put your hand down, Edgar.)
Ade
I'm stuck at 19.

edit: make that 23. Woot!

I can't access the website. Is there any chance someone could post a higher res picture here to look at? And I take it that rather than the images being clues as to the films name, they are taken directly from the films..?
melzilla
no..some are clues to a film's name, some are taken from parts of a film, or are a clue to something that happens in it.............i got to 17 last night and then closed the window by accident!!! doh!

Edited due to unnecessarily bad spelling

Some of them are a direct visual reference, others are cryptically done, some require a bit of intelligent Googling. Even so, I'm totally stumped at 23 now. Okay, 24.

Dunno if we'd be allowed to host the image from the official site here or not - that aside, it's a tricky bugger to keep still to grab screen stills and paste into Photoshop to create a decent resolution pic, but I'm having a go...

Up to 26 now. Gonna be hard pressed to get the rest now I think.

Although one of them was verbally referred to in Hot Fuzz, and it's bugging the hell out of me now.
thirtyhelens
24....

(Which only makes me start doing the Jack Bauer countdown in my head..."dink...dank...dink...dank..." biggrin.gif )

I'd list the ones I'm stuck on, only I know they're going to bring me great shame later and I'm trying to stall.
pvc_sister
28 here, and I am personally responsible for about 6 I think! The bloke has got the rest but is now sitting back.

The worst bit is one of the two we (well mostly he) hasn't got seems bloody obvious!
pvc_sister
OK the bloke here - feelin proud about gettin 28 in a few hours but buggered now

need the guitar case and the shadows

will b happy to swap and feel smug about stuff i got nobody else did

any offers
Ade
One left! Boo-yah!
thirtyhelens
I have abandoned my own quest and am throwing all my support behind Ade.

What do you need, champ? Water? Towel? Want me to stitch up that eye for you?
Ade
Addvvviaaannnnn!

Yes, it's gotten rather bad - I'm now shouting my own name in some last ditch attempt to keep from forgetting who I am, as I push my brainmuscle to the limits of its endurance. Cheers for the towel, this is dehydrating work.

Admittedly, I had a little help, thanks to PVCsisterbloke.

Just the shadowy multiple Nick/Dannies to puzzle out now. I just thought I'd try Attack Of The Clones, but it don't work. biggrin.gif

*gasp* I got that one.

Don't worry, Ade, I won't tell. Unless you have a dramatic collapse of willpower.
Ade
Willpower gone. I done lostified it. Gah. I give up.

would you like a clue, or have you fully given up?

I will grant you this - it's NOT immediately apparent, and I'm actually still not sure I got it outside of a wild guess. laugh.gif

Shall I spoiler a clue?
fordprefect294
Found 27/30, the will is weak.

Can I get a hint as a PM for the football player, the chalk outline, and the Nick/Danny clones north of the Porsche?

I'll spoiler the chalk outline one for you. It's Die Hard

Not sure about the other 2 though. Anyone spoiler these for us?

Well done for getting 27/30! I may ask you for help with some of the ones I'm missing. And welcome to the boards by the way!!!

The (American) football player? That one bugged the shit out of me, as well. It seems like it should be obvious...

Teehee.

I wouldn't worry about it - I drew a blank for ages at several far easier than that one.

Okay, I've racked my brain and now admitting defeat. I'm up to 27/30 so I'm hoping someone could help me out with the last 3? I'm stuck on:

The PL and Co shop sign
The boy by the fountain
Nicholas and Danny in paint

Please put me out of my misery laugh.gif

Glad you got the others ok. You want clues for these last ones or you gonna try and work them out? Go on, you know you can do it!!!
Justincredible
i hadn't thought about them today. but no new ideas have come to my mind. i tried just putting in famous cop movies, but none of them worked.

so here's a question. what movies should have been put in the sandford clue game?

what about LA Confidential??? Rush Hour??? the long kiss goodnight??? miami vice??
