Here's my full review of SOKOMANIA
I think this is one of the most addictive puzzlers on the Lynx. I find myself swearing up and down that a level is not possible, only to later figure out what I wasn't seeing. It really makes you think. I'd compare its strategy to the number sliding doo-dads of days gone by (or Vid Grid on the Jag). Some may not agree with hefty price tag that this game still carries. I say buy this one up before there are no more to be had. It's definitely worth it.
Graphics - Simple but effective. Walls, Crates, Drop zones and the pulsing red dot that represents your 'forklift'.
Sound - Nice music (though somewhat repetive) and the option to turn it off is a plus. I think it's called 'the entertainer' or at least a rip-off of it.
Gameplay - Nothing fancy going here, just a little bit of brain power. You're not going to play it for hours on end. I try to make it through at least one level each time I play it. I'd compare its gameplay to Gridders, which was available on a few platforms in the early 90's.
Options - There is a configuration option that falls somewhat into the category of gameplay. You can change the movement of your 'forklift' from choppy (for quick thinkers?) to smooth (for smooth people?). This option eliminates erroneous movements at inopportune times. Like at the end of a level in games like Crystal Mines and Chip's Challenge. It can still happen, but this option lessens the liklihood of you throwing your Lynx across the room.
***Please note that only a Lynx I will stand up to this type of abuse.
Extras - None that I'm aware of.
Overall - A definite must own for the serious Lynxer.
PS - I rate this game a '10' in all areas, but others feel that this is only deserving of the cream of the crop games. In my opinion, this game is everything I'd hoped it would be - and then some! Maybe its overall is only a '9.5' due to the lack of extras!
