The classic puzzle game by Hiroyuki Imabayashi comes to your Mac's Dashboard. Push all of the lightbulbs onto the sockets to win! It sounds easy, but wait until you get stuck
Over 850 Sokoban puzzles, ranging from dead easy to nigh impossible, are included.
Running the widget on Dashboard requires MacOS 10.4 or higher. Sokoban-curious visitors browsing with Safari 1.3 or higher, Firefox, Mozilla, or other standards-compliant browsers can try the Sokoban widget online here. Use the arrow keys to move your character. Pressing "R" or clicking the "Reset" button resets the puzzle if you get stuck, while pressing "U" or clicking the "Undo" button takes back moves one at a time.
Instructions are now written on the back of the widget.
350 more puzzles have been added, including the easier "Minicosmos" and "Novoban" sets for those who found the sets in 1.0 too difficult.
The puzzle sets are now marked in the menu with their difficulty, from easy () to maddening (). This is done in an entirely subjective, non-scientific way, so you may disagree with my assessment.
Buttons have been added to go to the previous and next puzzles within a set, making it easy to browse through a set's puzzles.
Moving the mouse over the widget now reveals arrow buttons around the player icon, allowing the player to be moved using the mouse.
