Geometry Friends is a platform video game. It has simulated physics and takes place in a 2D environment. In the rectangular track of the competition a rectangle is controlled, which can move sideways and resize. The objective of the game is to collect all diamonds in the environment in the least amount of time. Since 2013 there are Geometry Friends competitions at the IEEE Conference on Computational Intelligence and Games. Our program Subgoal A* Agent finished first in the Rectangle track of the IEEE CIG 2015 Geometry Friends competition.
