|Gripple (tm) is a 2-dimensional puzzle from m-squared
corporation. It is built of 16 buttons, that have to be
grouped in their 4 different colours. The buttons are
mounted on 5 overlapping wheels and can be moved by
turning the wheels.
There exists a mechanical version of the game; unfortunately I didn't find any dealer on the web. The java-version here on the right side differs in two characteristics from the mechanical one:
Suspicious minds could say that the game keeps track of the turns while shuffling, and goes the same way back for solving. You can make the following test: shuffle by yourself by clicking arbitrarily on different wheels. The game will (almost ever) take another and - as I hope - shorter way back.
