name that game!

Recommended Posts

Okay there's this certain game that i've played.  It's come in different forms, but the principle is the same.  One of the versions I played was you were this guy and you had to push blocks around on the screen and had to get them positioned on the screen a certain way in order to clear a path to the door. 

Another variation I played was on a cell phone with sheep, where they were positioned a certain way on the screen and you had to move them around and get them all in a certain place. 

The challenge was that unless you like, moved them a certain way, you get screwed, for instance, you can't pull the block out of the corner or something. 

Does anybody have any idea what I'm talking about here? I'm trying to figure out if there is an official name for these games or happens to know of a game like that.  I'm bored and want to play it but I can't google it cuz I can't figure out what keyword(s) to search for.

ignore the rest of this post....


grrrrrr i hate it when i have to think of something like this. i just HAVE to know and wont stop til i do  ;D

yeah i know the game. I don't think its one game in particular as there was many different versions. Some would let you push the blocks by a single square, some would result in a pushed block sliding until it hit the nearest wall. One variation was based on atoms (well, colourful balls anyway but they had to be linked in a certain way).

the closest i can think of for now is [url=http://www.google.co.uk/images?hl=en&q=bomberman&btnG=Search+Images]Bomberman[/url] but I know that's not the game, it's just as close to "layout" of the game you're on about that I can think of right now.

you should be able to download the full version of chip's challenge online somewhere.  i did a few months ago after remembering it out of the blue.  arguably the best game for windows 95, ever.  one hundred and something levels of sequence-dependent goodness.

plus you just can't beat that music.

I always knew it as Sokoban. I'm sure there are [b]tons[/b] of variations out there, though. I'll have to check out Chip's Challenge ;)

Cool! That looks a [b]lot[/b] like the old DOS game [url=http://www.dosgamesarchive.com/download/game/97]Bolo's Adventure[/url]. If I remember right, there were 3 different versions of this game (succinctly named [i]Bolo's Adventure[/i], [i]Bolo's Adventure 2[/i] and [i]Bolo's Adventure 3[/i]). If you are just looking for that type of puzzle game, this series is still a challenging one.

good - and you'll find it isn't for kids either.  there are some pretty challenging levels in there.  worst is when you get to a massive level that you make a single mistake on simply because you didn't see the whole screen beforehand - but, that's part of the game now, ain't it?
