Flood-it links

Now that I have my own Flood-it solver working I feel OK looking at what other people have done.

Flood-it has been proven to be NP-hard. So, there really isn't any reduction that will make the problem easy.

Stackoverflow question without much good content, other than a suggestion to use A* (duh.)

This puzzle was the basis for an About.com programming challenge. The winning solution's strategy was not immediately clear to me.

Unflood It on google code, a python implementation that does a purely heuristic search.

Haskell implementation, pruned depth-first search.

Nice blog entry on a python implementation which is also doing heuristic search.
