Box is a remake of Soko-Ban, a computer puzzle game in which you push crates through a maze-like room. The objective is to move all crates to the designated position without getting yourself stuck.

Gameplay: It's Soko-Ban, a very popular computer puzzle games for obvious reasons. A very simple concept with endless possibilities. If you like puzzle games chances are you'll love this game.
What is really nice about Box is that it saves your progress so every time you start it up it goes straight to the level you were playing.

Graphics: iKi, the creator, used images from the Zelda games for his game and it works really well. The graphics are cute and this draws you more into the game.

Sound: The background music is perfect. It sets the right mood and it's not too intrusive or repetitive. There are a few sound effects which are effective and give enough feedback to support gameplay.

Controls: The controls are spot-on. All buttons do exactly what you expect them to do: You move the character around with the d-pad, use the b-button to undo and the shoulder-buttons allow you to scroll through the levels.

Replay value: To be honest I never made it past level 86: I can't find a way to finish it within 999 moves :-(   I have played the game several times and the puzzles are challenging every time. 100 levels should keep you going for a while.

There are limits to what you can do in HTML so the version you can play here does not have music or sound effects. You also can't undo your moves but it will give you a good idea of what the game is about.
