  That's why the number of moves is a spoiler!

  Heh, looking at the number of moves to the solution to this one makes it pretty easy to solve ;).

  It was actually a little tricky for me to figure out which direction I needed to calculate the offsets from, but after that, it was easy to solve (with calculator or computer).

BTW, escape will do a pretty good job of compressing a solution that is mostly just "down."

  Well, you would have been pretty sorry when you found out that the server wouldn't accept your level because the solution was too long. ;)

  Here is another level where the solution is encoded in the number of moves.

Note how easily I could have made the smallest solution length larger than default speed run length. No one would have been able to defeat the default! But I didn't feel like having a megabyte sized solution hanging around my esp file. Either that, or I'm nice.
