Trivia

1001 Video Games

Sokoban appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die by General Editor Tony Mott.

NEC version

The first edition of Soko-Ban was programmed in BASIC on the NEC PC-8801 computer. It had twenty levels, of which the latter ten had false walls which had to be passed through in order to solve the mazes. This feature was not retained in later ports.

Title translation

Sōkoban means "warehouse duty" in Japanese.
