Default Slide Puzzle - 02-23-2010, 01:38 AM

I'm working on a slide puzzle game. It's a very simple one and the only difference is it uses numbers instead of pictures. I'll upload it once it's actually 'playable' because right now I barely have the basics done.

Here's a list of what's finished so far:

- game set up
- loading screen (with animation too! )
- generates random puzzles (with proper tessellation!)
- cursor that selects square
- cursor movement with boundaries

Here's a list of what needs to be done:

- menu*
- ability to move slide pieces
- puzzle answer (so the game knows when it's done)
- better cursor capabilities

*I have something special planned for the menu, but you'll have to wait for me to finish it in order to find out

First Release! Go here to download: http://www.alice.org/community/showthread.php?p=17516

I've updated the game so here's what is has so far:

- game set up
- loading screen (with animation too! )
- generates random puzzles (with proper tessellation!)
- cursor that selects square
- cursor movement with boundaries
- ability to move slide pieces
- puzzle answer (game can now determine when it's done)

Here's a list of what needs to be done:

- menu
- better cursor capabilities
- fix 14-15 unsolvable error
- Autosolver using Heuristic algorithm.


I'll also be placing in some extra little things like removing random junk stuff that isn't needed anymore, but that's after I have the list stuff done.

Oh, neat. I personally always hated slider puzzles when I was little, but that's because I was terrible at them.

I've actually had to test the game several times to see if it all worked together (especially when it checked the answer), so I'm pretty quick to solving it. There's actually a simple way to solve them too.

F - solved
o - need to solve
8 - unsolved

1. first, get the top row completed

Code:
[o][o][o][o]
[8][8][8][8]
[8][8][8][8]
[8][8][8][8]
2. next, get the second row completed

Code:
[F][F][F][F]
[o][o][o][o]
[8][8][8][8]
[8][8][8][8]
3. now, get the two unsolved squares on the left completed

Code:
[F][F][F][F]
[F][F][F][F]
[o][8][8][8]
[o][8][8][8]
4. finish the next two squares

Code:
[F][F][F][F]
[F][F][F][F]
[F][o][8][8]
[F][o][8][8]
5. keep switching around the last four squares until finished

Code:
[F][F][F][F]
[F][F][F][F]
[F][F][o][o]
[F][F][o][o]
