GridlockThis simple and elegant Flash game looks like a work of art: minimal design paired with maximum gameplay. While not an original concept, Gridlock features classic sliding-block puzzle gameplay that will surely exercise your brain. Each level holds a blue block that you must slide through the opening. Slide any of the blocks necessary to achieve your goal. Progress is saved automatically.

Corwin Derkatch of Canada has been hosting this game for a couple of years now, and I continually see references to it popping up. A very well-executed game in the genre, and a very beautiful game to behold.

I can only get the blocks to move up or down, not left or right.... what's up with that??

I've been stuck on level 34 for a very long time now. For a few months, I've tried mindlessly moving the blocks around, trying not to think about it too much or just trying to plan out the entire execution beforehand. It just seems impossible. I keep ending up at the same places no matter what I change.

Just wondering about this. I am stuck on level 34... has anyone here beaten it??? I don't think it's impossible, but i am starting to wonder...

There's an IRL version of this game semi-designed for children, with big plastic cars and wheels that fit on a grid, with the game basically working the same way as this.

I never got past like... level 25 of this one. Very tough.

I'm on level 35.
Just wondering has anyone beaten all levels?
how many levels are there?

For those stuck on the lower levels, especially starting on level 8:

You can move the blue piece before the puzzle's done. This was throwing me through a loop on level 8. For example, if you have room, scoot the blue piece closer to the edge so you can start moving other pieces to clear the way.

@Jay - I have the same problem that SAM did. It appears that the link has problems.

@SAM - I was able to Google and find it on a number of other sites though. This one worked just fine:
