    Nice one jomegat! Cool concept and presentation, just how you wanted it to look I'm sure. I tried to take the fewest steps but I rarely earn a gold trophy with that endeavor. Some players must be able to float over squares, lol. Like Paddington, 301 steps!

      @Opeth2112: Sometimes I get the gold trophy, but I don't often hold it for long. :D

    The challenge of a puzzle like this is to solve it in the fewest moves.

      @jomegat: Alright, got it, no hard feelings. xD I'm not an "optimizer" myself, I strictly play for challenge, and when I've solved a puzzle I'm usually done with it. It's actually kind of nice how Sokoban manages to appeal to different folks and their playstyles.

      @diceman: I'm definitely in the optimizer crowd. :D

    Mmmmh ... I appreciate the concept, but this is a rather trivial puzzle; you don't even need the second player.
