Plasq anniversary, Pluzzle
Plasq today released a new game--Pluzzle 1.0--in celebration of the company's one-year anniversary. The game offers time-tested, numbered-block puzzle gameplay and a "suave" new look. "Pluzzle is a neat little sliding-tile puzzle, which you can shrink or expand to suit your skill." The game features draggable tiles, automated jumbling of tiles, animated tile movements, and custom image support via drag-and-drop. Pluzzle also features a customizable game board/tile size, as well as sound effects. The game is based on mathematician Sam Loyd's "Fifteen Puzzle," produced during the 1870s. Pluzzle is available for free, and the numbers can be disabled to enhance the challenge (system requirements were unavailable).
