Nat Geo Challenge--Slider Puzzle Solutions

Nat Geo Challenge--Solutions for Slider Puzzles
Below is a solutions key for the sliders puzzles. I have arranged the solutions in accordance with each Continent as they are shown in the game in the order they are given. There are six continents listed with four puzzles per continent. This key is set up for newly started puzzles. If user has already started the puzzles and is hopelessly stuck my recommendation is to use one of the other 2 saves the game has listed at the beginning menu. Otherwise, I believe the puzzles do eventually reset themselves, as I noticed on a few that I messed up at first. I have arranged each puzzle with the number of moves required, followed simply by the direction one must use with the Left Thumb Stick (Up, Down, Left or Right) for each move to get there. On to the solutions…

North America:

1. Mount Rushmore (28 moves):

Down, Left, Down, Right, Up, Up, Left, Down, Down, Left, Up, Up, Right, Down, Right, Down, Left, Up, Left, Down, Right, Up, Right, Down, Left, Up, Right, Up.

Thanks a lot for making this. I hate these kinds of puzzle. Remind me of rubix cubes. Finished all the slider puzzles in 5 minutes with this!

If you mess up...

This guide is excellent, but I got almost to the last puzzle and I messed one up. Rather than redo them all (which works, but if you're like me, carries a similar risk of screwing one up), you can go here:

http://analogbit.com/software/puzzletools

It's a nifty tool that allows you to input the orientation of the pieces as you see them, then it walks you through the solution. Hope that helps someone
