ConSlide Puzzles

ConSlide puzzles are a new type of sliding block puzzles invented by M. Oskar van Deventer. (See a photo of Oskar's mechanical version of the ConSlide puzzles.) Oskar suggested that the ConSlide concept would be a good candidate for computer generated puzzles, and he was right. The puzzles below were created by a modified version of the sliding block puzzle generator, and I think you'll find some real challenges among them.

The pieces of a ConSlide puzzle move like regular sliding block puzzles, but some of the pieces have sections connected by bars of various heights. This means pieces can pass over and under one another as long as the bars and posts don't run into one another. The goal of each of these puzzles is to move the red block to the upper left corner. More detailed rules are presented below, or you may just want to play around with the puzzles to get a feel of what moves are allowed.

By the way, I should warn you that some of these puzzles are extremely difficult. Good luck!
