Create sliding puzzle

an interactive sliding puzzle is built very easily but the solving can be quite challenging! :)

The oldschool sliding puzzle is now available at the online dinner table! Challenge your players with this shuffled version of your favourite image.

You can start creating your own sliding puzzle directly via the link below

How do sliding puzzles work?

You can upload your own image to create your own custom sliding puzzle based on that image. The puzzle gets split into as many rows and columns as you like and then gets shuffled! One empty space / missing puzzle piece is left, so you have space to slide the puzzle pieces around.

The puzzle player then has the challenge to 'slide' the puzzle pieces back in their original spot to make the image look correct again. You can do this by clicking on the piece that you would like to slide into the empty spot, or use the arrow keys to move the puzzle piece closest to the empty spot and in the direction of the arrow.


How do players share / submit their completed puzzle?

Tracking (student) puzzle results is a cool feature that Puzzel.org has built in for upgraded subscriptions. You can add forced registration to see individual results, or add a completion message with a 'collect user info' option that allows you to export the submitted puzzle completions.

Can the sliding puzzle be embedded on my website?

Yes! This is the core goal of Puzzel.org, creating online, interactive and embeddable puzzles :). You do need an upgraded account for this.

Can the puzzle be customised?

Yes! You can adjust the colors, rows, columns, fonts and a lot of individual settings to make sure the sliding puzzle meets the look that you prefer.

How will my sliding puzzle look if I upgrade?

Below you see an interactive example sliding puzzle that shows how cleanly the puzzles show after embedding. There is no direct link to Puzzel.org whatsoever. Just the sliding puzzle, no shenanigans :)

How many people can play my sliding puzzle?

The free version allows 60 puzzle plays per month per account. You can upgrade to a better subscription to allow more puzzle plays.

Can I adjust the difficulty of the sliding puzzle?

Yes! In the free version you can adjust the number of rows/columns to make it easier/harder for people to solve. The upgraded subscription have the extra option of adjusting the 'Difficulty' setting to Easy/Normal/Hard, this determines the number of shuffles that take place, which can heavily impact the challenge of solving the sliding puzzle.
