There are two different ways of playing Level 2. The first is the normal
way, moving any ball anywhere at any time. The second way, which is
more interesting and difficult, and the way it was designed to be played,
is treating it as eight levels in one. Each letter of 'SOKOBAN!' must be
completed before the next is started, using only the balls arranged below
each letter in the shape of that letter. These can be put into the letter
goals in any order. While doing any letter all the other balls must be
considered locked, becoming walls. After any letter is finished, the balls
used for that letter become locked and the ones in the following letter
become unlocked. Your target is 635 moves (or better!).
Instead of doing Level 2 this way as one big level, you can do it as
eight separate levels using levels 3 - 10 to progress automatically. In
these the locked balls are walls and the goals for other letters are floor.
This looks a bit peculiar, but the playability is correct. Note that the start
position for the man for each letter is the end position for one way of
doing the previous letter. You might have done it a different way....
When you've finished all eight letters, you've earned the right to do the
one-push "small reward" level, where all the balls are shown in their
goals, looking normal again.
The last few levels are joke levels, mostly needing just two clicks to
solve. Hey, let the program do the work! (John C Davis)
