For this assignment, you need to implement two different search algorithms to solve a puzzle problem. For this puzzle game

INSTRUCTIONS TO CANDIDATES
ANSWER ALL QUESTIONS

Instruction:

For this assignment, you need to implement two different search algorithms to solve a puzzle problem. For this puzzle game, the GUI (graphical user interface) framework is provided that is developed by Python and pygame library. Below is a highlight of the provided framework.

Two folders are given:

1. game folder - This folder deals with all the graphical or visual stuff, including pattern generation from an image, user mouse/keyboard interface, ext (You do not need to modify any files in this class).

2. sol folder - This folder has the file that provides a solution for a given puzzle. Three functions you can find from this file “bfs()”, “dfs()” and “astar()”. (For this project, you are required to implement the first two functions). These three functions are triggered by the three buttons in the GUI accordingly.

 

 

What you need to do is to create Python project (suggested using the Interpreters 3.0 or higher) and copy these two folders directly to the created project. Then you need to install the pygame library, e.g. pip tools. Open the “puzzle.py” file in the game folder and run the code from there.

 

 

 

Requirements:

You need to implement the two functions in the “solution.py” file in the “sol” folder:

 

1. bfs(puzzle) (50%)

2. dfs(puzzle) (50%).

The input argument “puzzle” is just a list of 9 numbers, e.g. [4, 3, 5, 2, 0, 1, 8, 6, 7], where the number “8” represents the empty space. You can use a print() function to see this input data. Both functions expect you to return a list of a path for the number “8” to move to make the sequence into a sequential order. Each element of the path represents a new position of the number “8” to move. The details are explaned in the section below.

What should be submitted:

Explanation of the returned “path” list:

 The path stores the moving steps of the empty space “8" to move though when you play the game you move the tiles rather than the empty space. Below shows an example of the moving path of “8”

 

 

For example:

Input: data = {0, 4, 1, 3, 8, 2, 6, 7, 5 };

Goal: make it into the correct order {0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8}

You need to make the following changes on the number 8, since the number 8 represents the empty space, moving 8 to its neighboring numbers equals to moving the corresponding number to the empty space. Below it shows a demo of the steps:

0 4 1 swap with 4 0 8 1 swap with 1 0 1 8 swap with 2 0 1 2 swap with 5 0 1 2

 3 8 2 > 3 4 2         

 > 3 4 2                 

 > 3 4 8              > 3 4 5 -…

 6 7 5 6 7 5 6 7 5 6 7 5 6 7 8

So from this example, the right path should be {1, 2, 5, 8}.

WHY? You may thought it was {4, 1, 2, 5}, since the number 8 has swapped with them in this order. That is true. However, we do not care which number it swapped with, but which position the number 8 has gone through. As the numbers can be in any positions during different time, which give no hint about where the number 8 is. In contrast, the positions are fixed. So we assume the positions are in the same order as an increasing sequence:

[0] [1] [2]

Fixed Position = [3] [4] [5]

[6] [7] [8]

Here, I use "[]" to distinguish the positions from the numbers. So now you can see, the number 8 starts from position [4], then swapped with number 4, which goes to the position [1]; then swapped with number 1, which goes to the position [2]; then swapped with number 2, which goes to the position [5]; finally, swapped with number 5, which goes to the position [8]. So the path you should assign to the parameter "&solution" with the path sequence {1, 2, 5, 8}.
