Initially resembling "15", the slidder puzzle, SWIZZLE takes the idea much further. Tiles don't just slide, they flip in rows, columns AND diagonals, revealing the numbered reverse of the tiles, and with Diagonal flipping, tiles can lie sideways and even upside down.
Starting with the beginner 2x2 grid, numbered 1-4 on the front, and 5-8 on the reverse, the tiles are flipped automatically making the challenge to return the tiles to the original numerical order in the lease number of moves.
Each Puzzle can be individually selected using simple spin controls and the best score (lowest moves to complete) are recorded and displayed for each.
As you improve, and learn new techniques, you can return and replay any puzzle again and again to try to improve your score.
Not your ordinary "15 slider"
I'm really impressed with this game! At first I thought, ugh, another slider puzzle clogging up the app store, but when I took a closer look, I was intrigued with the ability to flip diagonal rows, so I got this and tried it out, though with low expectations. Wow was I wrong! This app is pretty great- really stretches your mind and spruces up the boring old original concept. Plus thousands and thousands of puzzles! Don't be turned off by the words "15 slider puzzle" in the description like I was at first, because this is something totally different that's worth your money
Fun, original puzzle
This is a cool unusual puzzle that has my mind twisted. Watch the diagonal flip, the results are interesting. Level 2 is really easy, but teaches you the moves. After that it get toucher with each level. Game play is slightly different for odd and even levels. Only complaint is that there is no way to start clean, so I could practise.

Fantastic! Simply amazing! That's a LOT of levels. I have an idea. (like it really needs improvement) maybe you could add a time challenge or something? So you could see how fast you can do it? Yeah anyway, this app is PERFECT. I can't find a single thing wrong with it. If your reading this, please take my idea as a possibility. Thanks!
