This applet constructs a sliding puzzle based on an image provided. To move a tile into the empty space, click on the tile to be moved.
The applet was made by Eric Harshbarger, the anime image was not.
The applet may be downloaded for free by clicking on the TAR-file link below (read the FAQ if you're not sure what to do with a TAR file).
The FAQ also has step by step instructions on how to embed an applet into your own webpage.
While I do not require any payment for the use of these applets at The Applet Depot, if you find them to be extraordinarily useful on your own
website, I'd encourage you to make a modest donation (like, $1 or 2 per applet used) to my Paypal account (send any contributions to 'firstname.lastname@example.org').
Once unTARed, you should find the following classes (plus a '.jar' file if you want to use the archive= attribute in the <applet> tag):
