SokoMind is distributed as freeware. More about this in the readme file.  

System requirements: Windows 95/98, 640x480 pixels, at least 256 colors.

  1. The levels marked "1." and "2." are made available with kind permission of Yoshio Murase. On his Sokoban Page (cf. Links ), he regularly publishes the "level of the week". Great stuff.
  2. Before presenting the current series of handmade levels, Yoshio Murase published his famous computer generated levels. All of them are small, only 8 x 8 squares, and have only three boxes, but finding the correct solution can be very difficult.
The 50 'original levels' or variations of them can no longer be found on this website. They are commercial levels and are copyright Thinking Rabbit Inc., Japan.

All levels on this site are copyrighted work of the named authors. If you want to publish them on your website, you need the copyright holder's permission.

If you have designed your own levels using the edit mode and are looking for an opportunity to share them with others, I am glad to publish them here if you send them to me via e-mail. Please include the solution to make sure the puzzle is solvable. Do not send me levels which you have downloaded from other webpages, I am only interested in original mazes which you have made by your own effort.
