Review 1:
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.

Review 2:

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.

Review 3:

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! Review 4: 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
canít 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
80ís game? Youíll still get addicted even if the colours make you feel a
bit wasted ;). You HAVE to play this game, itís the original and canít be
beat. Itís the mother of all puzzle games!
