before my seeing comments: My solution [arrived to through the 32-pixel, B&W, restartable-moving-pieces setting]: in view of the possibility\s: not all three-star problems are made equal [re difficulty] \ rook starts\ still king in first move followed by knight and rook check , to mate with rook after black-king moves west and east knight blocks pawn before black-king moves east [or to mate with rook from east\ rook], white's rathree starts

An easy miniature. Shown are R-mates on the black back rank. The key puts the wR into ambush at a3 with the threat 2. Nb6+ 3. Ra8#. On 1.. Kb8, Kd8 2. Nc3 (zugzwang), Rf3 Kc8, ~ 3. Ra8#, Rf8#. Here for hardness two stars are in order. Published in Pat a Mat (31\972) 2000-12.
