Sokoban Game

FavoriteLoadingAdd game to your favorites

This is a fairly standard timed sokoban game with 16 levels. Push the boxes to their rightful place in the playing field in as little time as possible. Although its tutorial level is easy, the game quickly becomes hard. We recommend this game for more seasoned sokoban players.

  • Use the arrow buttons on the lower right corner to move your character.
  • Push the boxes until they reach their target spaces.
  • One wrong move can leave your puzzle unsolvable. Move with care.

      • Toggle the game’s audio through the sound button on the right.
  • Game Controls
    • Desktop
      • Although this game was optimized for touchscreen devices, its controls can still work in a desktop with a mouse.

    • Touchscreen devices
      • Tap at the directional buttons on the lower right corner with your fingers to move your character.
  • Game Play
    • Sokoban basics
      • Move all the boxes to their designated slots somewhere in the level.
      • To move a box:
        • Stand on an empty space beside it opposite to where you want it to move.
        • Move in the direction you want to go.
      • Boxes can only move in an empty space.
        • A box cannot move through a wall or another box.
        • If a box is in a corner or is trapped between a wall and another box, it is stuck.
        • If any one box is stuck in a space other than a designated slot, the level becomes unwinnable.
      • The game does not save your solve time or move count. It does display them on the timer and move counter. Take note of these if you want to try a different strategy when you replay a level.
    • Interface
      • The playing field occupies most of the screen to the left.
      • In a narrow strip to the right are the following:
        • The directional buttons: These are found on the lower right corner. Left click or tap on these to move.
        • Above it are two buttons:
          • The reset button starts the game all over again.
          • The home button brings you back to the welcome screen.
        • The move counter: This shows you how many moves it took to solve the puzzle.
        • The timer: Located on the top right corner, this shows you how long you’ve been working on the puzzle.
    • Level selection
      • Levels are unlocked in sequence. You must solve the first level to unlock the second, and so on.
      • The first level acts as a tutorial. It gets harder from there.
      • You can replay all the levels you’ve unlocked by choosing the level selection option on the welcome screen.
    • Tips
      • Watch your step. If you move just one thing out of place, you could find yourself with an unsolvable puzzle.
      • Reconsider the obvious solution.
        • Sometimes, putting a box in too early or in the wrong place will make it impossible to place in others.
        • Pay attention to the space you need to move the boxes. These will help you determine the right box placement.
      • Ensure that you and the boxes have open paths available.
        • Blocking your way out can make the game unwinnable.
        • Sometimes, you must push the boxes away toward a more open area to make them easier to move.
        • Move the boxes in a way that wins you more open areas to push the other boxes.
      • If you do find yourself out of options, select the reset button and try again. Trial and error will be a key tool in your arsenal.
  • Target Audience
    • People who like logic puzzle games should enjoy this game.
    • There are no adult themes in this game.
