Here's a little brain teaser for you. It's like the game Marble Jumper in the 2005 Minigame Multicart only this version allows you to jump diagonally. Can you figure out the solution? It is doable because I managed to do it, but silly me forgot to write the solution down. :mad: Note that the only valid moves are jumps. Oh, and the ending move doesn't have to be at the center.

This type of game is fun. You should make a game that has a whole series of these puzzles that get tougher as you go along. But it seems more like a square than a marble...

I made it so the game automatically resets if there's no valid moves. I also made a couple more easy puzzles. If anyone would like to volunteer to make a hard one, be my guest. The way it's set up now is that there's 3 valid vertical rows and 8 valid horizontal rows, but I can change that if need be.
