Beating the traffic

Rush Hour is a popular sliding puzzle game from ThinkFun with a straightforward objective: free the trapped red car from traffic! Originally called “Tokyo Parking”, this game was designed by renowned puzzle creator Nob Yoshigahara in the 1970s and was distributed in America in the 1990s. Since then, it has sparked a renewed interest in sliding puzzles, which continues till this day (e.g., “Unblock Me” is a popular game on the app store which uses the exact same concept).
