Jilly's Farm Volume 1 - SokoBAArn!

Post by bobs » Thu Dec 28, 2017 8:33 am

I've just released my new sheep-based 48K Spectrum isometric sokoban game - SokoBAArn! - which can be downloaded from itch.io:

https://bobs-stuff.itch.io/sokobaarn

You can name your own price to download it, as I'd like people to play & create their own levels for it using the built-in level editor and code system, and share them

Good fun. Up to level 22 and easy going so far. I like the ability to push more than one haystack at a time, and I love designing Sokoban levels so will come up with some.

At first I felt it was a bit of a waste to write your own isometric engine and use it for a Sokoban clone, but it's original, and we have quite enough games like Knight Lore.

It's a great game, puzzles to solve and some hidden stars might appear on the title screen. Well done.

Great little game. It's not often we see new original isometric games for the Speccy, but this one is excellent and quite playable. I've only had time to play to level 6 so far, but I hope to play all the way through. Great job, Bob.

Your game is awesome... as usual! :)

I have just finished mapping this game and I had a lot of fun doing it. I will upload the map to Pavero's site tonight.

Very nice puzzle game. Am up to level 16 but my brain has started to hurt so have stopped now.. I can foresee myself getting very stuck, there were some fiendish levels on X=Y=Z and I suspect something similar here... :o
