See Subway Shuffle Lite for a free version of Subway Shuffle containing the first six levels, and a sampling of four harder ones. Give it a try! Warning, it is addictive (just see the reviews).
Subway Shuffle represents a new concept in puzzling — this is not a repackaging of puzzles you’ve seen elsewhere. Designed and developed by an MIT computer scientist, these puzzles pack a maximum of challenge and complexity into a deceptively simple layout.
Here’s the setup: you are riding the subway, and your task is to reach your destination. The problem is, there are other subway cars in your way! Each subway car can move only on its own color line: the red cars on the Red Line, the blue cars on the Blue Line, etc. Can you shuffle the cars from station to station, eventually moving your own car to your exit station?
Subway Shuffle comes with 91 different layouts of increasing difficulty, each a self-contained puzzle in spatial reasoning and logic. The early levels are fairly easy; they help you learn the techniques you will need to solve the later levels. If you get stuck, a “hint” button will show you the next move.
Congratulations to puzzle guru Nick Baxter, who solved level 90! Of course, we had to design a new one, even harder. We thought 90 was beyond human capability, but we were wrong. How about level 91? We’ll see…
These features are new in version 2.0:
* Level selection screen for easier navigation.
* Record of solved / unsolved levels.
* Multiple level sets, including “Aubrey’s Favorites”: the very best levels.
* Undo / redo move.
* Improved command interface.
* Preferences for sound and appearance.
