Sokoban is an Uzebox remake of a fairly popular puzzle game. The concept is simple but quite deep on more challenging levels(sadly there are only 6 right now). The player takes the role of a warehouse worker pushing boxes who must cover all targets on the ground. A box may not be pulled so the player must look ahead to determine if a move will end up trapping a box. As of now I just wanted to release a beta and see if its worth developing further. Would really appreciate any bug reports/play testing/feature ideas.

Current Features

  • 1 player puzzle mode with map rotation
  • Demo Playback
  • Built in Level Editor (saving map not yet done)
  • 6 Maps
  • Customizable Tile and Character Sets
  • Built In Help Screens (minimal)

Upcoming Features

  • 2 Player Modes: VS & Coop
  • Lots More Maps/Demos
  • Extra Tile and Character Sets
  • Multiple Music Tracks
  • Level Editor Overhaul With Map Save(On Chip & SDCard)
  • Attempt Simple Random Map Generator (unlikely)

Controls

  • Up = move up
  • Down = move down
  • Left = move left
  • Right = move right (wraps at screen edge)
  • Select = restart level
  • Start = bring up menu(in game/editor), select menu item
  • X = rotate map counter-clockwise, tile selection(editor)
  • Y = rotate map clockwise, tile selection(editor)
  • B = place tile (map editor)

Notes

I really would like to finish this up into a proper game. At the very least it needs more tiles,maps,and music. The level editor leaves something to be desired as well. If you have a hard time solving a level watch the demos from the title screen. Eventually I would like to add a demo for every map. Currently I maybe shifting gears towards my upcoming title so this might be on the back burner for a while.
