Sliding Cube
Above:Solved

Looks like a 2x2x2 with a hole. Indeed it is a pure moving-hole-puzzle but a 3D-one.

After the creator presented Twist & Slide (a puzzle which combines a 2x2x2 with a moving hole puzzle on its surfaces) he came up with this puzzle.
Sliding Cube is yet another example of a moving hole puzzle in three dimension. This time there is no twisting around axis possible. The puzzle looks like a 2x2x2 cube and has 23 tiles sliding around the cube. As the square tiles can slide over edges, they can change orientation. This makes it harder to solve than regular two-dimensional sliding-piece puzzles.
