The sliding puzzle enough already.

Everyday the app store has a few more of these sliding puzzles where 14 pieces are out of order, one piece is missing and the task is to place the numbers back in sequence.

I don't have the energy to count but a mild guess would be that 10 % of all puzzles on iTunes are this slider puzzle.

I am really hoping that developers realize soon that there are enough of them already.

The world is such a dynamic and small place ideas are everywhere. Anything is better than this sliding puzzle. Please stop.

Note: this does not apply to Cogs.

Edit: Note note: I don't see many of these, maybe you're looking in the wrong places.

The sliding puzzles I am referring to are the ones that take a picture and cut them into pieces and a game is created. Walt Disney made it even on the what's hot section right now in the games section. The name" Disney Puzzle Slider " 13 ratings and 11 of them are fives.
