[edit] Hints

Hint One
    Your options for a first jump are pretty limited. It has to be one of the four balls surrounding the center ball. The tough part is deciding what to do next.

    For your second move, pop a ball into the space that opened up when you moved your first ball.

Hint Two
    Next, move a ball into the open center space.

Hint Three
    Read carefully, because this next move is key.

    You need to take the ball now sitting in the center space and move it in the direction that you moved your ball in the first move.

    The rest of the puzzle is up to you.
