Summary

Sokobos is a beautiful puzzle game that is all about block pushing to make and fulfill blueprints, it is a minimalistic game that does away with fancy graphics, a huge list of options and settings, and instead drills down to a peaceful and soothing puzzle experience. There are not a lot of bad things to be said about the game and a lot of good things to say. Sokobos is a game that gives a lot with very little and is very much a game you should check out.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
