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. Like other classic puzzle games, it is easy to learn yet hard to master. I actually never did finish the game – in the last few levels 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.
