  wikipedia has an article on sliding block puzzles. I have the Rush Hour game and I used it to help me test designs when I originally designed the layout of this puzzle.

  mm: there's a board game puzzle called "Rush Hour" that this is an embedding of. The level makes a lot more sense if you've seen it. ;)

  (PS: I'm mm, so almost one of the "MoMs", I could be a Grandma already, I just did not grow up with computers and all those games are kind of new to me, that's why I often just don't understand what "you guys" are talking about!)

  Sliding block puzzles in general? You seem to have created something like "Traffic Jam" a long time ago, maybe even before knowing about the escape game. So there must exist some classic sliding block thing - what and where could I learn more about classic sliding block puzzles?

  Sorry for the confusion. I meant that the puzzle is based on sliding block puzzles in general. The exact layout is my own design.

  KWM, what is that "classic sliding block puzzle"? (BTW: Speedrun 520? It took me like a million of steps to finally get to the exit...)

  1 million cool point will be awarded to the first person to embed a rubik's cube. :)

Very good!
I love this game, and this was a nice level, though it was indeed a bit confusing (I don't have a different idea to embed it, either). Well done!
(I guess this speedrun is not optimal, but I don't know)

This is a variation on the classic sliding block puzzle. It's modeled after a puzzle that I designed and built (poorly) a few years ago. Sorry about the setup scheme, I couldn't think of another way to do it.
