About iSlideTiles


This is an implementation of the classic "15 Puzzle". The object is to arrange the tiles in order by sliding them around. A timer keeps track of how long it takes to solve the puzzle.

While developing this application I was able to verify that not all initial tile orderings can be solved. In fact, a randomly selected ordering has a 50% probability of being solved. To spare the player unnecessary frustration, I've included a check to ensure only solvable tile orderings are presented. The solvability algorithm is described at Wolfram MathWorld: 15 Puzzle.
