RufasSlider

RufaSlider is a collection of 16 different block slider puzzles for kids and casual puzzlers. It includes a Klotski-style family, a DirtyDozen family, and a Traffic-Rush family. And now these puzzle families come with embedded AutoSolvers to help you.

The Klotski family uses rectangles of 4 sizes: 1x1, 2x2, 1x2, 2x1. The objective in each game is stated near the window top, but usually involves moving a large block to a specified location within the window.

The DirtyDozen family is similar except there are L-shaped puzzle pieces.

The Traffic-Rush family uses data, with 2x1, 1x2, 3x1, 1x3 rectangles. Here, the long rectangles represent cars or trucks that can only move [roll] lengthwise...the goal being to move the red car toward the "exit door".

Several other classic block slider games are included: Fifteen, Eight, Nine, Panama, MaBoy, GetMyGoat, 2-versions of HoleInOne, Suits, and 2-versions of LinkRings.

To move a block, use the arrow keys. If the automatic block selector chooses the wrong block, simply click the cursor on the desired block before using the arrow key. Thusly, the games are laptop friendly.

Now there are autosolvers embedded into the TrafficRush, Klotski, DirtyDozen, LinkRings and Maboy games to be used interactively, using the (=)-key which single-steps toward a solution.

Completely revised architecture makes puzzling much easier and intuitive.

Choice of two easy build systems that allow anyone with OS-X or Linux and GCC to recompile; but first try the delivered exes. Note for Mac users: now comes with a Mac Binary Bundle.

Minimum system requirements: 

OpenGL 3.3 core; GNU/Linux or Mac OS-X
