A Little to the Left Alternate Solutions & Hints

For each puzzle, I’ll give a hint, and then behind a spoiler, an explanation for the sorting logic, and then a screenshot of the solution.

This guide presumes that for each puzzle you already know the ‘standard’ solution provided by the in-game hint option, and thusly those won’t be covered. Some of my own hints will reference them.

Tomato Cans

Hint: Center every squiggle.
Explanation: Center the information label for the can on the right, the loop-de-loop in the blue band to the left of the tomato for the middle can, and the green squiggle above the tomato for the can on the right. The logic behind this still mostly misses me.
