Sixteen is visually similar to Fifteen but with a different type of move. This time, there is no hole: all 16 squares on the grid contain numbered squares.
Your goal is to shift an entire row left or right, or shift an entire column up or down; every time you do that, the tile you shift off the grid re-appears at the other end of the same row, in the space you just vacated.
To win, arrange the tiles into numerical order (1,2,3,4 on the top row, 13,14,15,16 on the bottom). When you’ve done that, try playing on different sizes of grid.
- Custom mode where you define the width, height, and number of shuffling moves
