Description of Soko-Ban
Soko-ban is the first puzzle game I played on the PC, and it remains to this day one of the most difficult. The objective is simple: move crates to create a path to the exit. But like other classic puzzle games, it is easy to learn yet hard to master.
I actually never did finish the game-- the last few levels were very difficult in that you cannot afford even one false move: empty spaces are few, and the order of moving crates must be planned 20-30 steps in advance. Recommended for all puzzle fans.

I had this game when I had an old 8088. I enjoyed playing it but now I'm finding it very challenging (especially level 11 where I'm stuck) . Fun old game.

Does this game have two color modes(purple mode & red mode)? Anyone knows how to change the color mode?~

Just hit enter to make Jack enter the building;
hit enter to get in front of the elevator
hit the numbers to the level you want
hit A to accept
later, hit L to leave
there is no reset key: you have to hit Esc then hit the level numbers again.

I remember it as one my first ever Computer games. But now when I try to Play i don't manage to use the Elevator to get to the Levels. How does it work?

Yep, finally found it, the first ever game played on our DOS computer; our first home pc. Dad and I had great fun trying to solve the puzzles.

I remember my grandfather and I playing the DOS version of this when I was a kid. I've missed this game so much. So much fun and intense puzzle solving challanges. Can't wait to play this again!!
