Independent studio Cinemax goes full circle with puzzle game Sokomania 2: Cool Job

Sokomania 2 Cool Jobartwork1Sokomania was the first Cinemax title published on Nintendo DSiWare and the upcoming sequel will mark the end of an era before studio moves to the Nintendo 3DS hand-held system with a first person dungeon crawler The Keep already in development.

Sokomania 2 seeks to enhance the popular concept of Sokoban with many new dynamic features. Traditional mazes full of crates that needs to be pushed to the right spots is just the beginning of a demanding path of a warehouse keeper under your control.

Everything changes once the instant momentum comes into play, crates starts to move on their own, corridors become divided with doors, and switches and turntables will make your head spin as they make simply looking puzzles challenging.

Sokomania 2 offers one hundred levels arranged by difficulty from easy ones to super hard. You have to think hard or wait patiently to experiment with various possibilities.

Like Braid, rewind feature lets you go back a few steps, undo a wrong move and help you find the best solution to achieve the high score for the online leaderboards.

Find out how demanding  the job of a warehouse keeper is on May 8 when Sokomania 2: Cool Job releases for 200 Nintendo Points in the Nintendo DSi Shop for the Nintendo DSi hand-held system and for $1.99 in the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo 3DS systems.

Key Features:

  • Sokoban formula remixed – pushing blocks enhanced with switches, turntables, and conveyor belts under your direct control.
  • Exactly 100 levels full of challenging puzzles with gradually increasing difficulty. If you get stuck, you can skip the tricky part, move to another level and then get back.
  • Rewind function – takes you back a few steps to undo wrong moves or at the beginning of a level.
  • Online leaderboards – after completing a level you are given a unique code, that you can submit at an official site and compare scores with players around the world.
