What are some of the tactics to create a very difficult classic puzzle? I've been trying to replicate ideas from this puzzle pack: sokobanonline.com/play/web-archive/zbigniew-kornas/ziko but to no avail. They may be big, but these puzzles are extremely difficult that not even computers are able to solve it. So that's why I'm curious, what tactics make such puzzles extremely difficult?
- @Jonathan Handojo: I do not have much experience designing such very big classical mind-benders, but I've been wondering the same thing about, for instance, Aymeric du Peloux's puzzles. Those are generally quite small but still they can be really difficult to solve for humans. I can imagine that the tactics for small and big puzzles being completely different though
- @Mike Daas: It's definitely different. For large puzzles, I know a common one is transferring boxes to another section of the puzzle, like No. 11-03 Boxxle 1. You can try giving those puzzles in the link a shot, especially the second page. I promise you, you won't be disappointed at its difficulty. I don't know about smaller ones though, ZIKO has a few small ones.
Just something I've been wondering. The site shows the top rated puzzles, but I'm curious about as to what the most played / most solved puzzles are on this website. The highest I've seen is Thinking Rabbit's Boxxle No. 01-01 with 3.2k plays and over 750 solved, but I wonder if there's any even more popular puzzles
Guys, it's been way too long. I've been so hooked up with other things, I forgot this site existed. Jonathan is still making levels. The community is still active. I better whip up some puzzles. And yes, I am joining sokobanonline again. Nice to be back!
- @39cool: Let's see it
- Jeffrey Staff@39cool: Welcome back!
- @39cool: Sometimes, a long break can work wonders for your creativity. I look forward to your new puzzles.

- @steyrwolf: Thank you for replying. Long time ago, I solved many Sokomind puzzles. Now, after more than 10 years I remembered this game. I can say that I have some experience (not on this site, because of that i don't have some ranking). But, also I can say that I forgot many combinations in solving and that is reason that I asked for some help :) .
- @Trcko: you'll get it soon. Just try a couple of extra combinations. Even though I can't get it, I believe in you!
- @39cool: There is no more combinations for me for this puzzle :) .
How’s the mobile version coming along?
- Michel Staff@Shatterdpixel: There's a plan to release a mobile compatible update in September :-)
- @Michel: That's awesome! This place is such a treasure trove. Glad I saw a pointer to it on increpare's twitter
- @compscure: can't wait to publish on the go!
Randomly get the urge to come back and play some of these after literal years and I see Jorge Gloria is not only still at the top but has broken 1 Million. Also Jeff and Jonathan Handojo are still top puzzle creators (I mean I'd expect that of Jeffrey, but still lol). The more things change, the more they stay the same, lol. How have you all been?
