Puzzle mode complete solutions
By fusecavator
I solved everything so you can just plug in the solutions. Should take less than 10 minutes.

Introduction
While the first 3/4 of this game seems fairly doable after you get the hang of it, most of the last row seems like little more than luck that you stumble into something near the solution while clicking around and are good enough to recognise when you do end up near a solution and can figure out how to end it when you do, making this a real bad time. This guide has images of every puzzle with numbers on cells telling you how many times to click. All numbers are 1 or 2. When you're done you will have 5/9 achievements for this game.
How this was made
In order to make this I ended up programming a clone of the game with save states, click logging so I could see what I did after beating a puzzle, and an integrated brute forcer so I could try all combinations of the next ~5 moves or so any time to look for ways to finish. This was still a massive pain to beat some of the end puzzles, as they can have trillions of combinations and my brute forcer was only doing thousands per second, but it gave me clean solutions when I did make it through each level. Solutions are short, most under 20 clicks, although they may not be completely optimal(except level 10, that solution is entirely brute forced for lowest click count. I had a real bad time on that one my first time through the game). Solutions are easy to simplify since rotating anything 3 times brings it back to the start point so you can do clicks mod 3 => new click count to get all numbers between 0 and 2.

Conclusion
Now you should be done with puzzle mode, and just need the time attack achievements. I can't help with those since they're randomly generated. Good luck with them, you'll need it. The RNG is brutal.
