Players for the computer

You can find lots of Sokoban players on the net. Many of them stopped development years ago. No matter how good they were, dont bother, but use one (or more) of the players actually alive:

  • YASC – My favorite. You simply dont get a player with more features. Built in solver, optimizer, level designer, skin designer, screendump level converter. You name it. YASC got it. Windows only. Programmed by Brian Damgaard.
    Usually YASC is limited to 50*50 boards. You can get a 100*100 version, but not all features work with bigger boards. Look here and choose the file with the extension …SE.exe

  • JSoko – Java Sokoban player by Matthias Meger. Runs on any platform that runs Java. So welcome Mac and Linux but sorry Android. Solver, optimizer.

  • YSokoban – Windows player by George Petrov. Lot of facilities. “Go through wall” function, optimizer. Really slick function changing skins and opening new level collections. Just drag the graphics or file on YSokoban and Bingo!

  • Sokoban++ – Windows player by Joris Wit. Solver, level designer, Many different languages. Outstanding level format converter.

    If you didnt notice, it is in Danish. And the original original #37
