Denki Blocks Minimal Solutions
This page shows off some optimal solutions to Denki Blocks puzzles, for the Game Boy Advance (GBA) and Game Boy Color (GBC) versions. This page lists how many optimal solutions I have; except for a few Club levels, I now have a solution listed for every level. The solutions that I'm not sure are optimal have been written in italics and with a ? after the move count.
The optimal solutions, and many of the suboptimal ones, have been generated and checked using a computer program I wrote. Some levels are easier to find solutions for than others; generally, levels with a lot of freedom to move pieces around, or that take more moves to complete, are harder to optimally solve.
I'd also like to thank ASchultz for his FAQ, which provided many useful ideas and starting points, although most of his solutions could be improved.
