Skin: Go2016

risingsunYou might find this skin in other versions on the net. I found the original graphics in a Sokoban program named Sokoban2 by Kohn. Here the walls are remade seamless, the goals got a more Go-like look and the graphics have been refreshed.
Find GO 1016 in the skin section.
And find Rising Sun here.

Why does YASS(Yet Another Sokoban Solver) only need a fraction of a second to solve screen.50 in theXSokoban easy edition at the left. And doesn’t solve screen.50 Original Original version at right at all?

Solvers22I haven’t got the answer but you can read something about solvers and optimizers if you continue here.
Please comment and supply with anything you know.

The 88th MF8 competition


No. This is not a MF8 puzzle but something to catch your attention. The 88th MF8 competition started yesterday. Why not go there and participate.

When you have finished the puzzles at MF8 come back here and play the above puzzle, MF888.

Want to use the above skin with your favorite Sokoban Program? You can read a little about Borgar and the skins here. And download the skin(s) in the Common Skin format.

Ghislain Martin arguably is the person who has developed most Sokoban programs. During the years it has been Sokostation 1 to 5, Sokobanized and Sokoban Factory 1 to 2.
8 Sokoban programs but that is obviously not enough. Just stumbled across a new program, Sokostation 6, at Ghislains homepage.
I will certainly try it.

And George Petrov released the fourth update this year for YSokoban. Version 1.815. Watch for updates since you will get nice new features. Actually this version has been out since 2016-07-15 so you better start watching out for 1.816 🙂

Can’t keep an eye on everything. Eg. know next to nothing about the Android or Apple scene. If you have any knowledge about Sokoban worth sharing, new or old, please inform me and I will publish it on this site.

Time for another one. Zorry. Zero.

Forgot Pacman ? And what did he do in Sokoban ?


An easy one:

Tired of blurred versions of Scott Lindhurst’s MacIntosh skin? Despair not. I found crisp original graphics deep in the files of Sokoban++. Just have a look:

From left to right: No clean up – Remade – Remade with grid

Did a little pixel cleanup and couldn’t avoid adding a small animation.
Actually it was pretty good before. But click on the image and have a look at the corners and colors.
Somebody might better like the soft blurred look usually made by Windows’ “smoothening” low res images. Not me.

More than 10 years ago John C. Davis made a few Sokoban puzzles.
And among others the skin Snooker.JohnCDavis

Collection: JCD Levels
Title: Level 1

Hmm. Found a clear fault in one of the puzzles in Accumulated1. Who can spot it? No it is not the extra blocks in 29 or 42. They are for the design. And no it is not the Diamond 9×9 even if you dont like this kind of puzzles 😉

XSokC (Michael Bischoff)Stumbled on the skin above. An ugly looking Sokoban from the Linux program XSok by Michael Bischoff from 1994. You can still download and play the game. If you got a Linux computer of course.

If you want a challenge for the next few hours, try my new collection DrFogh – Accumulated130No, it isn’t only chessboards and diamonds 🙂

With kind permission from the author and with the work from Paul Voyer the levelsets for Brainsport Extreme and Sokoban Extreme was published at
The levelsets seem to be autogenerated, probably with a human touch afterwards. You will find some rough diamonds in the sets. With a tiny bit of polish you get a perfect gem like this:AlexanderAlekhineSkin: Sokoban Extreme.

An addition to Numbers

2016-07-10 (rev 2016-07-14)
Gerald Holler made the program Sokoban97. Later changed the name to the probably more well known Sokomind.
The skin has long been adapted as common skin named Sokomind with unoriginal walls and floors.
The skin is here remade in two versions. One rectangular as in the original skin only usable with YASC. And one rewamped to square format as common skin usable with YASC and YSokoban. Only the square version is animated so far.

New is the nicely animated skin Bejeweled. Bejeweled You find it on this page and in the skin section

The page Rocks ‘n’ Diamond has been changed conciderably. You might want to reread it.

Skin: Bejeweled
Comment: A1Master came up with a little challenge at This level will surely not even be a runner up but I like it anyway.

The page Rocks ‘n’ Diamond has been changed conciderably. You might want to reread it.

Right now you might want to look at the skin section. Yesterday I only got a molested version of the skin Japan by Tanaka Nicos cut to the right dimensions for Visual Sokoban. But Paul Voyer send me the original graphics so I could make a working version for YASC and YSokoban. Added some wallwork and a little animation by the way. Hope you enjoy it.Summer1

If you like crosses, I added a small collection with this theme.
Collection/Title: Crosses/Just Pop The Bottle
Comment: A fresh one just made it for this collection.
Pop Here I solved the puzzle for you so you dont have to ask for a solution 🙂
This puzzle is certainly solvable without moving all the blocks. But how many can you avoid moving? Best man or woman will get his/her name here:

You have to mail me the solution of course.
