PyTraffic is a Python version of the board game Rush Hour, created by Binary Arts Corporation.
The goal of the game is to get a red car out of a six-by-six grid full of automobiles by moving the other vehicles out of its way. However, the cars and trucks (set up before play according to a puzzle card) obstruct the path which makes the puzzle harder.
The board is a 6×6 grid with grooves in the tiles to allow cars to slide, and an exit hole which according to the puzzle cards, only the red car can escape. The game comes with 12 cars and 4 trucks, each colored differently. The cars take up 2 squares each; and the trucks take up 3.
PyTraffic was inspired by Gtraffic, a Gnome version of Rush Hour.
- Comes with about 19.000 puzzles ranging from intermediate to expert (17,851 puzzles at intermediate level, 1026 at advanced, and 107 at expert).
- Has several ‘themes’: Blocks, DeLuxe3D, DeLuxe3DLowRes, Fancy2D, FancyRotated and Minimal2D.
- 5 skill levels.
- Help facility which is able to find the best move in every position.
