Fuse Clues instructions

The object of Fuse Clues is to place fuses in the correct order to restore power to apartments in a building.

Currently, Fuse Clues only accepts one solution (though kudos if you do find another viable solution!)

The order of the fuses is based on a numerical pattern you must solve to restore power. Drag a numbered fuse into the appropriate socket to complete the pattern. These numerical patterns start off relatively easy, like +1 (2, 3, 4, 5) for example.


The numerical patterns become more difficult and complex at higher levels. The game also introduces more fuses into the higher levels, some not even related to the pattern, adding extra challenge.

If you’re having trouble figuring out the pattern, then use the Hint button at the bottom of the game screen. The Hint button places a fuse in the correct socket for you. You only get one hint per round.

Tap the Submit button after you’re done moving all the fuses. You can also tap Give Up if you’d rather move on to the next round (out of 4 total rounds.) It then shows you the correct sequence.


You can review instructions for any of our games at any time. On a computer, click How to Play before starting the game. Or, during the game, clicking the pause (II) button in the top-left corner and then selecting How to Play.

In the app, then tap the question mark (?) to the left of the Play button before starting. Or, during the game, tap pause (II) at the top-left of the screen and then tap How To Play from the menu that appears.

Scoring & Levels

You earn points for answering correctly and additional points for answering quickly. Your level increases the more quickly you answer. If you use a Hint, then your level doesn’t increase as much and you earn fewer points. If you answer slowly, then your difficulty level stays the same or might even decrease depending on how slowly you answer.

At higher levels you receive points even if you answer incorrectly. This is to reward you for the extra challenge at that level.
