New demo: Pushbot

Here it is: Pushbot.

A fully playable demo of 27 multicolour Sokoban levels in order of increasing difficulty. Levels can be skipped.

Nothing to get tooo excited about, but I wanted to get this in the archive in case I never touch it again. It's a BiFrost version of Sokoban, using levels from Dr Beep's SokobONE, which in turn were taken from various - SOKOMIND and LOMA. I chose them because they fit the screen and are the best type of Sokoban level - small and deceptively challenging.

It's not the smoothest play but it's a nice enough way to experience some of the best Sokoban levels there are.

Who knows, I may even return to it someday.

Very good graphics !

Some years ago I would never believe that it's Spectrum if someone showed it to me.

The first level (and probably every one) is impossible.

Other than that: Well done!

Level 3 is quite easy!
Possibly needs the levels to be re-ordered for increasing difficulty.

Then again, I wouldn't know if there's anything after level 4 as that one REALLY IS IMPOSSIBLE!

No, it's perfectly completable ;)

OK, confession time: I rage-quit after level one.

I have just skipped to level 3 and it is indeed easy :)

Ahh! So simple now I see the solution. Can you record it all for me so I can watch you complete it. :)
