Sadly, no, but don't worry about me; you went through enough effort already.

Thanks! Used PL9W343HKJN7.
And here I am, posting a reply. Weird...

Anyway, my impressions of the game. It feels like a similar puzzle to Blocked, except with a fixed layout instead of multiple puzzles. The challenge here, though, lies in completing the puzzle in the smallest amount of moves. Given that, according to the description, the minimum number of moves to complete the puzzle is 87, the game presents enough of a challenge to satisfy puzzle addicts.

I'm completely mangling it during my first try at it, and I'm already at 123 moves. I can tell it's going to be a while until I can solve it in 87 moves.
I'd recommend this game to anyone who likes blocked or anything similar.

A couple suggestions, though. If you could include options for starting position, it would offer even more replayability.
Moving the blocks feels a little clumsy, which gets annoying when you need to make dozens of moves to solve the puzzle. Maybe if you could just touch a block and have it move, or something like that.

But those things aside, this is a great puzzle game with a lot of depth and I'd recommend it to anyone who likes sliding block puzzles or is just looking for a challenge.

@Entropic:

Thanks for the reply.
I know I can generate countless variations of this game, but I don't want to dilute the original puzzle which dates back for a few hundred years or so.

I will add an option to automatically move the block when touched, but this only works when there is a single direction in which that block can be moved.
I use the swipe to be able to move blocks in several directions (when possible).

I discovered this game about 4 years ago on Windows Mobile.
I have spent 3 days in my vacation at that time, trying to simply solve it (regardless of move count). It is very challenging. If you haven't played this puzzle game before, expect to spend even a few days to beat it.

About 6 months ago I did a version of this game for the BlackBerry.
At first, people said : "Uhmm ... yeah ... yet another puzzle" ... until I drove most of them mad, trying to solve it.

The game packs a few good days of gameplay at least, plus I hope you like the soundtrack and graphics ... hopefully, a good value for $0.99

------
I do plan an update as soon as I finish our next game (Rail Adventures) ... so expect to see some more goodies.
There will be more puzzles (3 -4 more) all at the same difficulty level.
