Controls: arrow keys to move, Z to jump to the other open space. Mouse also works.
This is a sliding block puzzle. The object is to get the green 2x2 sheep block from the top left to the bottom right.
The design of the game is not mine. A friend had it in their house, and did not know its origins. Presumably the puzzle has a solution, but I could not find it, so I wished to make a version I could play with.
(I finally completed it the next day. Confirmed to be solvable.)
This puzzle was originally patented in 1928 by J.M. Schneider. Information and patent links at Rob's Puzzle Page listed under C56 / C57.
This game is also available at the Pico-8 BBS where you can download the "cart" and view its source code:
