RufaSlider contains several variants of block slider puzzles including "Klotski" and "Traffic-Rush".

The Klotski variant, called "slider", uses rectangles of 4 sizes: 1x1, 2x2, 1x2, 2x1. The objective in each game is stated near the window top, but usually involves moving a large block to a specified location within the window.

The Traffic-Rush variant, called "rush", uses data, with 2x1, 1x2, 3x1, 1x3 rectangles. Here, the cars or trucks can only move [roll] lengthwise...the goal being to move the red car toward the "garage door" on the right.

Note that either game description file is a simple text file with a particular format that allows users to easily define additional puzzles.

Now, with several other classic block slider games incuding fifteen, eight, panama, MaBoy, GetMyGoat, and HoleInOne.

To move a block, use your keyboard's arrow keys.

Works on Macs running OS-X and PCs running GNU/Linux.
