RufaSlider contains several types of block slider puzzles including a "Klotski" family, a "Traffic-Rush" family, and several individual classics..

"slider", contains a large collection of Klotski style games. 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. Move between games using <n>=next or <p>=previous keys.

"rush" contains a large collection of Traffic-Rush style games. 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 each game description file is a simple text file with a particular format that allows users to easily define additional puzzles.

Comes with several other classics including 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.
