If you want to challenge yourself, take note of your previous time or moves to give yourself a record to beat.

Strategy and tips
Often, you must push the boxes in a specific order to solve the puzzle.
Reconsider the obvious solutions. Pushing in one box too early can make it impossible to maneuver another one into place.
Watch your step. Make a move too early and you might render the puzzle unsolvable.
Elbow room is the key to keeping the puzzle solvable.
Always keep your paths open. The puzzle is unsolvable if neither the boxes nor the forklift can be moved.
Sometimes you must move a box to a more open area further away from the target to put it in place properly.
You need ample space to avoid placing the box in a corner.
It is easy to think of the walls as the enemy in this game. Do not push a box against a wall unless there is an opening in the wall to move it in another direction or it is aligned with its end destination in a straight path.
Boxes which are in a corner can not be moved in any direction.
The game is suited for people of all ages who like logic puzzle games.
