I like how you extended the classic "sokoban" game with power ups, the time limit also make the game a lot more challenging and interesting. Good work ;)

but ...

I'm surprised that you just used java.awt (i gave a look at your code), why not using a game library ? It would have spared you a lot of work if you had used Lwgl, Libgdx or Slick.
Awt is not really optimized for real-time rendering, and your game suffers of it.

@Khopa: I know Lwjgl and Libgdx, but I didn't want to use it, because I really wanted to make a game in 48 hours only by myself... and thanks ;)

Awesome game incorporating the theme into a puzzle game resulting in a challenge to think quickly.
Also introducing more mechanics over time makes it gradually more difficult and brings even more joy :D. Keep up the good work.

Nice execution of the classic sokoban game. I'm a sucker for these, so of course I enjoyed it. Good job! It seems there are plenty of puzzle games this time around.

Classic. :) Very good! The sound effects may be a bit annoying and the graphics could do with a bit of work but hey it's still fun classic sokoban with a twist. :)

Web version doesn't work for me.
Gives " Zugriff verweigert, Fehler 403. Sorry, access forbidden, error 403. Contact service provider"

@nek I'm sorry for that, but I don't know why it doesn't work for you... Thanks for report!

Ok. The downloaded one works well so here is my short review.

I like your game. The combination of sokoban mechanics with powerups and two characters puzzles really works.
There are some glitches and game becomes suddenly very hard (the puzzle where one of the characters is surrounded with four clocks) otherwise it's a solid gaming experience.

The controls are horrible, sorry, playing this from a MAC and I have repeat key presses disabled, which means I have to mash keys like crazy to move around, not cool. Also that sound you hear every time you move is very very tiering, I'd rather play the game without sound than hear that constantly. A bad interface makes for a bad experience and although the game itself is quite ok :) playing it is not :(.

This was actually pretty fun, I didn't realise just how long I'd been playing it for... Good job! :)

Nice! Fun puzzles! Game pauses for me lots when sounds are played.

Web version wasn't working for me - Download version works fine.

The character looks quite funny :P The sfx for walking are a bit strange, but apart from that, a solid recreation of sokoban with enhanced functionality =)

My security options are blocking the game, so I can't play...

Aug 26, 2013 @ 4:32pm

@Reaperguy: So.. then change them or download it... because I can not change these options.. :|

Nice little game and quite challenging, especially when it comes to controlling more than just one player. Well done!

Nice little entry. Gameplay was challenging and fun, audio was snappy. Didn't understand why it's called "11" seconds but fun nonetheless ;)

well done. The music at the start was awesome, and at times the game got pretty intense

Aug 29, 2013 @ 8:07pm

@Morgawr: If you finish the game, you have to look at the timer.. ;)

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
