 Sliding puzzle -- Facts, Info, and Encyclopedia article   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21) Sliding puzzles or sliding block puzzles challenge a player to slide usually flat pieces along certain routes (usually on a board) to establish a certain end-configuration. Sliding puzzles are essentially two-dimensional in nature, even if the sliding is facilitated by mechanically interlinked pieces (like partially encaged marbles) or three-dimensional tokens. Sliding Piece Puzzles (by (Click link for more info and facts about Edward Hordern) Edward Hordern, 1986, (Click link for more info and facts about Oxford University Press) Oxford University Press, ISBN 0-19-853204-0)) is said to be the definitive volume on this type of puzzle. www.absoluteastronomy.com /encyclopedia/s/sl/sliding_puzzle.htm   (249 words)

 Sam Loyd's fifteen   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21) I must note that the theory of the puzzle, as presented in the puzzle's history page, relates only to two configurations: the original one with all the counters in the right order and the one with the counters 14 and 15 interchanged. For a given puzzle configuration, let N denote the sum of the total number of inversions and the row number of the empty square. Sliding it down changes the parity of the row number of the empty square. www.cut-the-knot.org /pythagoras/fifteen.shtml   (843 words)

 Quzzle - Sliding Block Puzzle Lewis knows his puzzle is the world's hardest of its type as his computer considered every possible puzzle among ten's of thousands, each having an often long sequence of moves. Lewis considered puzzles consisting of blocks one by one, one by two, and two by two in frames up to four by five; where the objective is to move the largest piece from one specific corner to another specific corner. For those interested in some of the computer theory of sliding block puzzles, it has been shown that sliding block puzzles are in a class of problems that are the most difficult even for a computer to solve. www.quirkle.com /puzzle   (850 words)

 MazeWorks - Sliders   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21) Once the puzzle is scrambled, click on a block with the mouse to move it into the vacant square. The goal of the original puzzle was to move the blocks into correct numerical order, with the vacant square in the lower-right corner (the Home State of the 15-Square puzzle). But it is possible to solve the 14-15 puzzle if the Home State is modified slightly, by placing the vacant square in the upper-left corner of the board rather than the lower right. www.mazeworks.com /sliders   (171 words)

 Javascript Sliding Puzzle V1.0 GUIDE   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21) This means you need to cut the puzzle image up manually using an image editor, then rename each image as 'pictureXX.jpg' where XX is the number of that piece's position reading left to right and down (as you would a book). A number representing how difficult the puzzle is to solve, the higher this number, the harder it is. It actually how many random moves are made to mix the pieces up. If the puzzle is in a window opened with javascript, (see this example), set this value to 'opener' instead. www.dev-den.co.uk /puzzle/guide.html   (1911 words)

 Math Games: Sliding Block Puzzles For puzzles with a small number of pieces, a high number of moves, and difficult solutions, my own puzzles used to be record setters.

 15 Puzzle   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21) It's yet another Java version of the (in)famous "15 puzzle." The pieces are to be arranged in ascending order, with the hole in the bottom right corner. Well, one obvious reason is that the graphics are made to resemble an actual physical puzzle, with all the little grooves and ledges that hold it together. But if you happen to feel that click control is the only decent way to operate the 15 puzzle on a computer, then just press the "Toggle control" button. www.javaonthebrain.com /java/puzz15   (176 words)

 Resident Evil 4 Sliding Puzzle Solution - IGN FAQs When trying to solve the sliding puzzle, remember that if you mess it up, you can "retrace" your steps to make the puzzle look like it was originally. Assuming the puzzle is in the original pristine position, move the tile in position four to the middle (which starts off empty).
