I wrote Scramble in Java a couple of years ago as part of a web site that we gave a friend as a birthday present.

The concept is borrowed from a childhood puzzle. The puzzle is made up of eight interlocking plastic tiles on a 3x3 grid. The tiles are able to move horizontally or vertically to occupy the "hole" (the one space not occupied by any tiles). The tiles are numbered 1 to 8, and the object of the game is to restore the tiles to ordered from some random starting configuration.
