Did you know that the game “Sokoban” created by Hiroyuki Imabayashi was only published in 1982? It was such a success that we even know “Sokoban” (倉庫番 translates to ‘warehouse keeper’) as a sole genre today. It also has a huge fan base all around the globe that is always hungry for more. So, the developers “Djingarey” created a new adventure for them: Talak, a little raccoon, has lost his firefox friend Mango. The player’s job is to help him find his little furry companion in the great pyramid of Toutanrâton. Let’s jump right in!

Trapped in an old pyramid trying to find Mango and get out.

Well-designed and creative

What awaits you is a well-balanced game: It starts with a pleasant design that is 3D animated but has hand-drawn touches that add 2D elements. The sandy, warm colors are calming and fitting to the environment, and so is the music. Finally, the gameplay is thought-through and well-explained in the demo tutorial.
Besides the main game with its pre-designed levels, there is also a labyrinth editor where you can create your own level! While it is entertaining to challenge the main trials of the game, the editor is a great and enjoyable way to further engage with this app. And I bet you too like to tinker with level design since Nintendo released the “Super Mario Maker”, don’t you?
But wait, there’s more! If creativity isn’t your forte, you still get to appreciate the level editor: You can download the labyrinths fellow players have created in the “Community’s labyrinths” section! Yee-haw!

The resolution is to improve the resolution

Like everywhere: where there is a light, there is a shadow. But thankfully, this game is still well-illuminated, so to speak.
The first shadow that dims the game experience is that the screen gets cut off sometimes. If you click on the “?” for example, it is impossible to read the upper instructions on my phone (Samsung S8).
Secondly, the resolution options seem to be slightly buggy. If you swipe across the graphics options, it’s possible to select more than one option. Also, there isn’t a visible difference between low and high graphics.
Lastly, I’d like to give some food for thought: While I immensely enjoyed the ad-free gameplay I’ve thankfully got to experience thanks to a promo code, I would like to propose the option of a free version (with ads used in moderation), so that more people get to enjoy this app. An alternative could be adding some free levels so others get an introduction to the game before deciding whether to buy it.
