Whoa yeah - leave reality behind and play Sokoban. This game can really hook you up with this simple concept of moving crates to the right places. It starts up so nice and simple but gets harder soon. One false move can be crucial and you have to start up again. It is important to develop your strategy for each level before you move the first crate. Always remember that you should be able to move it back to its previous place if you can't put it on the targetted place where it can stay till the end. This game got what it takes to addict you for a long time - a simple idea and countless levels to occupy you for weeks. A timeless classic that doesn't need to hide for the big games of the genre like Tetris.
Soko-ban is the first puzzle game I played on the PC, and it remains to this day one of the most difficult. The objective is simple: move crates to create a path to the exit. But like other classic puzzle games, it is easy to learn yet hard to master. I actually never did finish the game-- the last few levels were very difficult in that you cannot afford even one false move: empty spaces are few, and the *order* of moving crates must be planned 20-30 steps in advance. Recommended for all puzzle fans.
One of the most original games of its time. Pushing and placing the crates onto the right spot can be quite a hard task to do. The game has many, many levels and they get pretty hard after only a few levels. Good thing you can play any level anytime you want. Good luck!
Ah Sokoban, the mother of many clones. The concept of this game was so simple, yet so original and perfectly puzzling that the game stood out in the puzzle game crowd. I used to play this for hours on end, and when I got a windows clone, I would make my own levels.
The situation is you are given a room, with walls all over the place, and you have to move the boxes onto the diamonds. Of course boxes can get trapped and then you can't move them anymore, and you have to start again. When you get all the boxes placed on the diamonds then you progress to the next level. See? The concept is simple, but is the game simple? No way! Even the first level makes you think, and by the time you get to the fourth level you can just envisage what the 50th will be like! Woe is you indeed. But you go red in the face, drink 100L of Coca-Cola and you persevere!
The graphics leave a lot to be desired, but what can you expect from an early 80's game? You'll still get addicted even if the colours make you feel a bit wasted ;).
You HAVE to play this game, it's the original and can't be beat. It's the mother of all puzzle games!
