       ksokoban - The Japanese warehouse keeper game

       ksokoban [Qt-options] [KDE-options] [file]

       The  first  sokoban  game was created in 1982 by Hiroyuki Imabayashi at
       the Japanese company Thinking Rabbit, Inc. ``Sokoban'' is Japanese  for
       ``warehouse  keeper''. The idea is that you are a warehouse keeper try-
       ing to push crates to their proper locations in a warehouse.

       The problem is that you cannot pull the crates or step  over  them.  If
       you  are  not careful, some of the crates can get stuck in wrong places
       and/or block your way.

       It can be rather difficult just to solve a level. But if  you  want  to
       make it even harder, you can try to minimise the number of moves and/or
       pushes you use to solve the level.

       To make the game more fun for small kids (below 10 years or  so),  some
       collections with easier levels are also included in ksokoban. These are
       marked (easy) in the level collection menu. Of course, these levels can
       be fun for adults too, for example if you don't want to expose yourself
       to too much mental strain.
