Sliding block puzzles.
a computerised version of a very old 'sliding block' puzzle.
Download WinZip (if you don't already
This version is unlike any other you can find on the net -- there is
a save and load game option and almost unlimited undo and redo of your
moves (max 600 moves).
The current version is Windows 95/NT only.
It was created using Borland C++Builder.
There is only one '.exe' file -- no '.dll's
or other clutter. Just unzip it into any directory and have fun!
E-mail your saved games (especially your first attempts) to puzzle@Schooling.org.uk
(even if you don't solve the puzzle) and if you are really unlucky I may
tell you when the next version is posted on this site.
The usual disclaimer applies -- you use this entirely at your own risk.
There is a questionnaire to fill in (included in the zip file) if you
would like to help me with some research.
If I get enough interest then I may do a Java version so you can
use it on a real computer (Mac).
