Default Xenon backglass 9square slider puzzle

It's not much, just a slider puzzle. It did take more work than I thought it would, but it is my first game using GameMaker Studio. Without any alterations this could be built to Mac, Windows, HTML 5, Android, and iOS, but I have not yet bought the export extensions and I don't have a Mac.

GameMaker Studio crashed dozens of times in the 4 hours I worked on this, not a hard crash but the build feature turned it's self off crying about some unregistered pause event I was creating. Tooltips did not work until the last time I ran it. Many features are gone or don't work, like the built-in save game feature, and though I have input custom splash screens and the program shows this, I still get the GMS default at runtime. Also you could run a window without showing the window in earlier versions, which is handy for a little gadget like this, but it's now errored out as obsolete. And it was updated just yesterday with a ton of stuff.

Anyway, you can press 1 to mix it up. Actually just restart it, saying there is just the one scramble included. And you can press zero to solve it.

Have you taken a look at Java FX2.2 using Netbeans by any chance?
No fees and the Android SDK is also free and is built on Java.

EDIT: Note that the Netbeans only includes the Plugin bindings for the various SDKs/Developer kits.
The kits are a separate download from Oracle.
