Argh is a single player, freeware, sliding block puzzle.

In this game there are three puzzles ARGH, BARGH and CARHG, all of which are similar but which differ in complexity. In each puzzle the player starts with a frame within which are a number of coloured blocks. The object in each game is to move block A from its starting position to a specified end position that's on the opposite side of the frame.

There's no sound and no score other than the number of moves taken. The game is entirely keyboard controlled and has a save/load function and a 'Boss key' that fills the screen with a spurious spread sheet. It has a command line switch that will cause it to run in monochrome

Though the game is freeware the author did sell a version of the game in which the puzzles would solve themselves
