Continuing Adventures of CyberBox, The box cover

One of the most original -- but sadly unknown -- puzzlers ever made, freeware or otherwise, The Continuing Adventures of CyberBox is a great Sokoban variant that is very innovative and ingenious. Based on 1991's CyberBox, Edward Collins' version is far superior, and much more addictive than the original. As for what the game is exactly, the description on official site says it all:

"The Continuing Adventures of CyberBox is a thought-provoking puzzle game. Your mission is to escape from each of the 15 rooms presented in this series in as few moves as possible. You'll accomplish this by correctly utilizing and manipulating the various types of boxes placed throughout the maze. The boxes could be Pushers, Zappers, Movers, Pullers, or Selectors and as the names suggest, they usually move (or move you) in very specific ways. The puzzle rooms may be solved consecutively or you may jump from room to room. The program tracks which rooms have been solved, the shortest number of moves, and the author's suggested number of moves. A number of handy features include Instant Replay which plays back your moves, a Retry option which starts you over from the beginning of the room, a Take Back option to take back individual moves, and a Save Your Current Position option to easily return to a saved position for when you've gone too far. Other features let your set game colors, animation speed, cursor images, and more! A room editor is included if you wish to create your own puzzle rooms."

The levels are very challenging, and high customizability makes the replay value very high. And when Erik Hermansen, designer of classic puzzler Deadly Rooms of Death, gave a two thumbs up for the game, you know this is not another run-of-the-mill game. Highly recommended!
