The sliding tile puzzle is a often a plastic trinket given out to children at various times, such as a school fair. This version of the puzzle has 16 tiles, arranged in a 4 by 4 grid.
The game play is simple: place all the pieces of the puzzle in their proper order by moving the tiles around. However, in the grid, there is only one empty space available to slide the tiles, which can make for a frustrating experience. And, in this electronic version, there is no way to pry off the plastic tiles to set them where you’d like.
