This is one of the levels in the game that really shows how ridiculously emergent these rules are. Even though it’s an end-of-chapter level, it still takes only 9 boxes to complete it! The level’s lowest known box count used to be 15.
The level goal is basically: Find the group of the largest size and keep only that. If there’s more than one ‘largest’ group, keep the last one.
A real life use-case would be like checking to see which player got the highest streak in a shooter, where each symbol would represent part of a player’s streak. …Though the 🔒 ruins it…
Also, you gotta love the color scheme. It's basically the same as Reverse - red on cyan. Sigh.
Stats: Boxes: 9. Very likely Minimum. Not Unique.
Objective: Return the longest streak of equal symbols. If there are multiple longest streaks return the last one. Each streak uses a unique symbol. Exit green.
Comments: This one’s hard. Have fun.
