Heres a rather unusual challenge. Not sure if its hard or not, but it took me a while to think of a solution. (ok, so my friend got it, not me :( )

Construct a room with 9 orbs in it (all must be accessible at all times, so you can't have orbs making doors to block other orbs) so that you can only exit the room if 4 or less of the orbs are hit.

Very nice.

Is it possible to make a room like that where you have to hit *exactly* 4 orbs? I don't think so..

Here's a modification of Zaratustra's room. You can only exit if you hit exactly four orbs.

I think Zaratustra missed something...

Nah, his one was fine, when I meant accessible at all times, I just meant that you can't have some orbs closing doors to other orbs.
