Welcome to the #1 Online Sokoban Community
is a logic game created by Hiroyuki Imabayashi in 1981. It was published in 1982 by a Japanese software company, Thinking Rabbit inc.
Your goal as "The Sokoban" (warehouse keeper) is to make sure all goal tiles have an object tile. In this case the goal is the green pad and the object is the red ruby.

This is done by controlling the sokoban's movement using the arrow keys on your keyboard or by using your mouse. Only one ruby can be pushed at a time and cannot be pulled.
As seen in the demo, you may have to move an already placed object from its goal in order to solve the puzzle.

You compete with fellow members with points being awarded when completing a puzzle.
There are two leader boards, one based on least moves and one based on least pushes. When completing a puzzle, you are entered into both leader boards. In the case of a tie for least moves, pushes determines the winner. For least pushes, moves determines the winner.
You can play a puzzle an unlimited amount of times. Your best score will automatically be used for the leader boards.
Country rankings are a summation of points for each member belonging to each respective country.
