Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
[Ricochet Robots] A puzzle a day keeps the robot doctor away
Rules: You need to move the selected robot to the selected target, which is determined by the goal token in the center of the board (color and symbol). Robots move in a straight line horizontally or vertically until they hit something (a wall or another robot). Each such move counts as one move. The goal is to move the selected robot to its' goal in the fewest possible moves. The robots are randomly placed at the beginning of the game. The end position for the robots after getting the target robot to the goal is the start position for the next puzzle.
The actual game has a time element to it which is not going to be replicated here. I'm going to check for answers each afternoon(ish), and whoever has posted a correct answer that is the fewest moves will get a point. There are 17 goal tokens, so we'll just go through them all and whoever has the most points at the end wins. Feel free to drop in or out as we go. Points will be awarded and new puzzles posted sometime in the afternoon EST each day.
You only get one answer submission, and we're going to use the honor system here that no one is going to look at other people's answers before submitting. Post answers in the thread in this format please:
