Get four disks in a row (horizontally or vertically). You control the little man, who always slides (in the four main directions) until he hits a box or the boundary.


If he stops at a disk that has an empty space behind it, the disk is shifted to this empty space. Here is the tricky part: you have to change direction by 90 degrees after each move.

If you get stuck in a corner and you do not have a move to play, you lose.

Control "back" lets you undo any number of moves.
