Shove it!

Post by Oh not again! » Tue Sep 09, 2008 7:20 pm

Anyone else played this MD game, the classic of warehouse gaming?

It's quite a good, fun puzzle-type game, curiously aimed at those wanting a career in warehousing, and quite possibly the most mundane premise for a video game I've ever heard of (no disrespect to those of you who do work in warehouses, but shooting stuff, driving fast and/or beating the bejeezus out of people always appealed to me more than shoving boxes around).

Yes, I used to like this game too. It was called Sokoban in Japan, I believe. There are various versions and sequels on many machines. I remember a Speccy magazine gave away a free version of it on a cover-tape. I think it was Your Sinclair, and their version of the game had something to do with a teddy bear as I recall. Sokoban World on the PC Engine is worth a play too.

I just spent some time Googling Sokoban. I didn't realise it was quite such a phenomena!
