<noname> (SPOILER) Added speedrun: 149 moves (old: 175).
<mark> (SPOILER) Added solution "Original Solve":
Forgot to uncheck speedrun box.
<mark> (SPOILER) (note: speedrun of 310 moves didn't break record; not added)
This was my first solve before mod.
Slightly different start to mission impossible start, different leaf pattern same ending.
RIP mission impossible.
<mark> (SPOILER) Added solution "Another way":
Did not use green block.

Klotski: Red Donkey Sat 05 Oct 2019 11:25
<noname> (SPOILER) When I first played this, I did not have a good idea what was going on with this level, even though I have tried Klotski before. I just had no idea how the 20 panel area corresponds to the play area, and no idea how the play area corresponds to a Klotski game. I only got the idea after reading the description at the author's webpage, but then the interface started to feel intuitive to me. I suppose the size restriction means that the interface is as good as it can be, so I guess I should not complain.

When I first tried Klotski, it took me a lot of effort to solve the Red Donkey, and I decided it's too time and energy consumming to invest into the game, so I stopped there. When this Escape version came out, I again was able to solve Red Donkey, but I gave up on the Trail (after lots of tries), and decided to look at the solution given by a link at the author's website. So I guess I'm not in a good position to judge the difficulty of both levels.

The solution website also contains the number of positions reachable from the start position, and as the number seems quite small in terms of computer brute force, I wrote a program to find the Escape-optimal solution for both Red Donkey and Trail. As these levels are relatively young on Escape, I think I would wait until they're older before releasing the solution.

Anyway, I guess I should be grateful that one can play Klotski at all with relatively intuitive controls as an Escape level, for the author must have taken lots of effort to make this happen. Thank you, Matt.

<noname> (SPOILER) While I first solved this level by hand, it is just too tempting to use a computer program to solve this: only 4 movable objects! - which means the total state space is small enough for a computer to brute force. Since this level is quite young, I'll hold back the computer-found optimal solution until this is older, so that other players may have a chance to find it (perhaps by hand?)

<mark> (SPOILER) Added speedrun: 175 moves (old: 180).
I did not solve it this way, speedrun only came after seeing your solution.
So I will throw a mod back your way.
Ps the level was great thanks.
