The Nowotnik Puzzle

Sorry, your browser does not support the features required for this page. Please upgrade your browser to the latest version.

This game is a remake of a Sinclair ZX Spectrum game. There are 2 different puzzles, each with 4 levels of play. In both puzzles, a grid of tiles is jumbled and the objective of the game is to restore the original state of the grid.

In puzzle 1, the tiles are moved up, down, left or right, and the tiles pushed of the board appear back on the other side. Half the playing area moves at once, which means that moving a particular tile rearranges a lot of other tiles.

In puzzle 2, a row or column of tiles is flipped at once, so that they are a mirror image of what they were before the flip.

Puzzle 2 is easier than puzzle 1; puzzle 1 is extremely challenging, comparable to a 2D version of Rubik's cube.
