Yes, I just found out about the evil known as sokoban. Yesterday, to be exact, was my introduction to this seemingly easy task devilishly designed to look like just another computer game.
Of course, I failed my first attempt miserably on Level 1. But that didn’t sway me. I tried, tried, and tried again. On the last try, success!
I’m now stuck on Level 9 (yes, if you’re above that, feel free to make snide comments–it’s part of the addiction, after all, to both make the snide comments about others who’ve yet to delve as far into this mindless beast as one has and to be subject by those who’ve descended to a greater depth) and am irritatingly close to solving it. That is, if you can say that I keep leaving A DIFFERENT BOX in a corner and thus running out of moves.
So, since I asked for help and not the solutions: What are good solving strategies for this demonic entertainment?
