"Sharpen" is a selection of levels and arrangements by Jordi Domènech, arranged by other authors.

I am grateful to the following authors your permission to include their arrangements in this collection: zhenying, Tian Lang, niwa, stopheart, Tui Leshan, David Holland, gyjgw, Přemysl Zíka, anian, laizhufu and Archanfel.

Three beautiful arrangements: Tui Leshan, Přemysl Zíka, niwa

Some time ago that I have these puzzles in my archive, but so far I have not decided to solve them. The four puzzles have something in common: they are authentic works of art.

Title: Chuchubi 10 #10 Tour de France h1x2
Date: 2016.2.28
Difficulty: 7
Best moves/pushes: 1172/225
URL: bbs.mf8-china.com/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=37579&extra=page%3D1&page=129

"Tour de France" is a beautiful puzzle of Eric F. Tchong, of which were made up to 11 arrangements. The first arrangement was mine, and then, in a few days, followed the arrangements of stopheart and anian. The last version was the h1, by anian + stopheart, and I think it's the most interesting (best moves/pushes: 1096/215; date: 2010.5.23). Apparently, the arrangement of Tui Leshan seems a simplification of h1, but there are some small changes that make it a version much more exciting and fun to solve.

Tui Leshan has built only a few puzzles, but his works are very elaborate and studied. I love your puzzles! In addition, he has a great aesthetic sense, which makes their puzzles and arrangements are small works of art.

Best moves/pushes: 1345/205

It is perhaps the best arrangement I've seen in these last two years. Difficult, exciting, and fun to solve. A masterpiece. My rating difficulty: 7. Original level: 1,000,001 candlelights #32 april2014. I've arranged a little the map (left side).

Author: David W. Skinner + niwa
Title: Sasquatch 48 r-2
Date: c. 2014
Difficulty: 6.5
Best moves/pushes: 3252/906

A master arrangement. Like the arrangement of York Shen, this one of niwa only adds 2 boxes, but 484 more moves are needed to solve it. That's great! This puzzle has not been published, although I'm not sure. Niwa sent it to me by e-mail.



Bonus!

Best moves/pushes: 1120/282

After several attempts, finally I've also solved this incredible "O". Really difficult. There are several positions that are not at all obvious. A little gem!

Beautiful arrangements: Sokoban Revenge

Next I post a small selection of the most beautiful arrangements of "Sokoban Revenge" (1991).

You can download all puzzles here:





Author: Hir
Title: Dual Barricade
Set: Arranged levels by Hir #11
Comment:
based on Sokoban Revenge #26 by Takemi Watanabe: added 2 walls, deleted 1 box and moved 1 box
Date: c. 1998
Difficulty: 6
Best moves/pushes: 136/32

Famous arrangement of Masato Hiramatsu. The original level of Watanabe has the title べるりんノカベ (Berlin Wall).




Author: Yasuhiro Morita + York Shen
Title: Sokoban Revenge #59 a
Comment: added 4 boxes
Date: 1991. Remodel: c. 2003
Difficulty: 7
Best moves/pushes: 771/247

Difficult storage.





Author: Hidemitsu Kobayashi + York Shen + stopheart + Tian Lang
Title: Sokoban Revenge #134 c
Comment:
YS: added 1 box
stopheart: added 1 wall, moved 2 goals
TL: moved 2 goals
Date: 1991. Remodel: c. 2003 (YS), 2012.2.19-20 (stopheart, TL)
URL: bbs.mf8-china.com/viewthread.php?tid=37579&extra=page%3D1&page=69
Difficulty: 7
Best moves/pushes: 943/248

Spectacular level of Kobayashi and difficult arrangement.





Author: Yasuhiro Morita + Marek Letrab
Title: Sokoban Revenge #162 a
Comment: added 2 boxes
Date: 1991. Remodel: July 2003
Difficulty: 6.5
Best moves/pushes: 910/371

Nice storage, with closing from within.





Author: Yasuhiro Morita + York Shen
Title: Sokoban Revenge #180 a
Comment: added 1 box
Date: 1991. Remodel: c. 2003
Difficulty: 6
Best moves/pushes: 803/213

Nice level of Yasuhiro Morita. The goals are the Japanese character 礻("shimesuhen"). The box added by York Shen makes it very difficult to close.





Author: monry + François Marques + GRIGoRusha + York Shen
Title: monry16z++
Comment:
FM: based on monry16, added 6 boxes
GR: added 2 boxes at the ends (version monry16y)
YS: stoned all 8 boxes added
Date: 1992.3.28 (monry). Remodel: 2003.6.22
Difficulty: Hard
Best moves/pushes: 2014/526 (Findus)

monry14 (diamond) and monry16 (elongated hexagon) are extensions of Sokoban Revenge #228. Is not sure whether in the first place François Marques added 6 boxes and then GRIGoRusha another 2 boxes, or vice versa. See also Remodel Club #51 (version monry16y) and #52 (monry16z+7, version by Marek Letrab with 14 stoned boxes more). In GrigrChallenge there are several remodels from monry16, most without solution: see gyjw0806c and following levels. Subsequently, York Shen posted on Yahoo! Sokoban three other remodels (with 2 more boxes).

This one and the next four levels are very hard. For specialists in chessboards within stepped structures.





Author: York Shen + GRIGoRusha
Title: yms12x
Set: Remodel Club #34
Comment: development level yms12, general idea from level monry16
Date: 2003.1.1. Remodel: 2003.2.11
Difficulty: Hard
Best moves/pushes: 1430/562 (Georgi Georgiev)

Is an extension of yms12, inspired in the elongated hexagon from monry16 (which in turn is an extension of Sokoban Revenge #228). See also yms12c (Remodel Club #33)





Author: gyjgw + LZY + York Shen
Title: 火中取栗 j
Comment:
YS (version a): placed the player in the center and the free box at the opposite end to the goal
LZY (versions b, c): added 10 boxes on the vertical and horizontal axes (goals outside the diamond), 1 wall in the center
YS (versions d, e, h, i, j): based on version a, added 11 boxes on the vertical and horizontal axes (goals also on the axes), 1 wall in the center
Date: July 2005. Remodel: c. 2005.7.26
Difficulty: Hard
Best moves/pushes: 7548/1204

Hard diamond with barriers of knots of boxes in both vertical and horizontal axes. The original level of gyjgw 火中取栗 (diamond of odd sides with 169 boxes) could be considered an extension of Sokoban Revenge #228, as well as also the next level of gyjgw 20050806.

This level was posted in the Chinese forum SuperSoko. I have given him the same external look that Sokoban Perfect #215. 





Author: gyjgw
Title: 20050806
Date: 2005.8.6
Difficulty: Hard
Best moves/pushes: 1983/474 (Tiaoa)

The free box of the center is enclosed by a wall of boxes. How to get to the center? See also Gyjgw Impossible Challenge #2, probably remodel of GRIGoRusha.





Author: gyjgw + GRIGoRusha
Title: gyijw0908a
Set: Remodel Club #108, Gyjgw Impossible Challenge #12
Comment: added 2 boxes
Date: 2005.9.8. Remodel: 2005.9.10 (according to the XSB file in the GRIGoRusha archive; in Remodel Club gives the date 24.12.2009, which is the date of the XSB file that takes in your website)
Difficulty: Hard
Best moves/pushes: 1458/308 (Sokobano)

Perhaps it could be considered a reworking of the previous puzzle (20050806).





Author: Hidemitsu Kobayashi + monry
Title: リベンジ238面改造 (Revenge 238 remodeling)
Set: monry #33
Comment: added 4 boxes, rearranged some goals in the left side
Date: 1991. Remodel: 1992.6.23
Difficulty: 7
Best moves/pushes: 1651/406

Hard storage on the left side.

Comment: added 1 box, major changes
Date: 1997.7.21 (create) - 1998.1.15

Really nice and fun to solve.

Small level, but difficult arrangement. Who will be the unknown author?





Author: Hidemitsu Kobayashi + unknown + Jordi Domènech
Title: Sokoban Revenge #264 f
Comment:
unknown: added some walls on the left and especially in C5
JD: added 4 boxes, arranged the right side of the map
Date: 1991. Remodel: c. 2006 (unknown), 2017.3.2 (JD)
Difficulty: 6.5
Best moves/pushes: 2018/595

Storage in "S", another classic level of Hidemitsu Kobayashi. In fact, according to Kobayashi, this level is a reworking of Sokoban Perfect #234. 





Author: Hidemitsu Kobayashi + stopheart + minglw + York Shen + gyjgw
Title: Sokoban Revenge #266 h
Comment:
stopheart: added 6 boxes, small change at the bottom
gyjgw: added 1 box, a change at the bottom
minglw: added 1 box, changed a box by a wall, moved 3 goals
YS: stoned 5 goals, small change at the bottom
gyjgw: moved 1 goal
Date: 1991. Remodel: 28 October - 2 November 2008
Difficulty: 7
Best moves/pushes: 1813/426

Excellent level of storage by Kobayashi and elaborated arrangement.





Author: Hidemitsu Kobayashi + monry
Title: リベンジ267面改造 (Revenge 267 remodeling)
Set: monry #21
Comment: added 7 boxes
Date: 1992.2.17 (first remodel), 1992.5.10
Difficulty: 7
Best moves/pushes: 3671/1067

Spectacular storage. Before placing any box you must study very well the storage area, if you do not want to repeat the puzzle 10 times.





Author: unknown + Kazuo Fukushima + Hir
Title: Sokoban Revenge level 279 arranged
Set: Arranged levels by Hir #7
First release: Sokoban (1985, Sega) #74; then in Sokoban Perfect (1989) #84. Remodels: Sokoban Perfect #305 (Masaki Ishino) and Sokoban Revenge (1991) #279 (Kazuo Fukushima)
Comment: based on SR-279, added 4 boxes, 2 walls
Date: 1985, 1991. Remodel: 1997.9.24
Difficulty: 7.5
Best moves/pushes: 388/143

The first version of this puzzle was published in Sokoban (1985, Sega) #74 and then in Sokoban Perfect (1989) #84. Inexplicably, this first version is very easy, and perhaps for this reason were made after two remodels: the first, in the same collection Sokoban Perfect #305 (by Masaki Ishino), and then another remodel in Sokoban Revenge #279 (by Kazuo Fukushima). The arrangement of Hir is one of the most beautiful that I know.





Author: Yoshio Sakae + York Shen + gyjgw
Title: Sokoban Revenge #283 ピラミッド・ソーコビアン (Pyramid Sokoban) b
Comment:
YS: added 6 boxes
gyjgw: added 1 box
Date: 1991. Remodel: c. January 2004
Difficulty: 6.5
Best moves/pushes: 366/214

Classic pyramid. Ideal to practice the technique of the "zipper"...





Author: Yasuhiro Morita + York Shen
Title: Sokoban Revenge #292 Keep me panic c (arr.)
Comment: added 3 boxes, stoned 5 floors
Date: 1991. Remodel: c. January 2004
Difficulty: 6.5
Best moves/pushes: 1242/360

Nice puzzle of storage in L and excellent arrangement of York Shen. For aesthetic reasons, I moved 3 goals to leave the L exempt.





Author: Hidemitsu Kobayashi + monry
Title: リベンジ295面改造 (Revenge 295 remodeling)
Set: monry #22
Comment: added 5 boxes
Date: 1991. Remodel: 1992
Difficulty: 7
Best moves/pushes: 3361/963

One of the last storage levels of Kobayashi, and I also think that the more difficult. I prefer this version of monry to the version of Hir, with 9 boxes more.

GRIGoRusha and zhenying have arrangements of similar difficulty, but perhaps this one of Howard is tighter. See also the elegant arrangement of Sokoban Revenge (1991) #231 by Takahiro Suzushima, with 4 boxes more.



Author: Masato Hiramatsu (Hir)

Title: MF8 7th Sokoban Competition (October, 2009) a
Comment:
TL: added 2 boxes, moved 3 goals of the central area and shape the number "七"
Date: 2009.9.30 (MF8 7th Sokoban Competition). Remodel: 2009.10.25 (TL)
URL: bbs.mf8-china.com/viewthread.php?tid=41064&extra=page%3D3
Difficulty: 7.5
Best moves/pushes: 2806/971

The goals of the central area are the Chinese number 七 ("7"). This level is based on Original remixed #20, but rotated counterclockwise as in Sokoban 2 (1984) #10 (= Sokoban Perfect #226).

Puzzle very beautiful and interesting to solve. The biggest difficulty is the closure, with the ingenious change in the location of the goals introduced by Tian Lang.

The level of the MF8 7th Sokoban Competition, easier, is here.



Author: Jordi Domènech

Date: 1984. Remodel: c. 2003
Difficulty: 6.5
Best moves/pushes: 561/203

This is the first level "two rows" of Sokoban and also the first in which they are used unequivocally rooms with sliding boxes. There are more than 30 arrangements of this classic level (see versions here), but I choose this one of York Shen, with a box more, which greatly increases the difficulty. I've slightly arranged the map (upper-left corner). The arrangement is also valid for the original level :)

Note of Jordi Domènech: The original puzzle of dzxmer + Jordi Domènech has been so modified that is unrecognizable. We must therefore consider this excellent puzzle as completely new and original, and in my opinion the author should be exclusively Tui Leshan.

Sokoban lessons - Beautiful arrangements: Sokoban Perfect

I publish here a small selection of the most beautiful arrangements of "Sokoban Perfect" (1989). 

I exclude the arrangements from the "Original" collection, which I will publish in another post.


You can download all puzzles here:

Title: Sokoban Perfect #29 a13
First release: Sokoban 2 (1984) #36; then in Sokoban Perfect (1989).
Comment:
JD: major changes: arranged the whole structure of the map
DH: added 7 boxes

You will have to sweat to undo the knot of the central area and place the first box...




Author: Yasuhiro Morita + York Shen + stopheart
Title: Sokoban Perfect #33 (b)
Date: 1989. Remodel: c. 2003 (YS), c. November 2005 (stopheart)
Comment:
YS: added 3 boxes
stopheart: added 4 boxes and changed 2 walls for boxes, stoned 3 floors and added 2 walls
Difficulty: 7
Best moves/pushes: 705/219

Difficult! stopheart has extracted oil from a structure seemingly without possibilities.


See also MF8 29th Sokoban Competition, remodeled by stopheart, more difficult and with a structure very extended.




Author: unknown (Thinking Rabbit) + monry + hir
Title: Sokoban Perfect #64
First release: Namida no Sokoban Special (1986) #40; then in Sokoban Perfect (1989).
Date: 1986. Remodel: 1998.10.24 (monry), 1998.10.27 (hir)
Comment:
monry: added 1 box, two subtle changes at the top and right
hir: added 1 box
Difficulty: 6
Best moves/pushes: 2091/506 (Ficko)

The original level is very beautiful, but without difficulty. The arrangements of monry + hir have given the level an unexpected difficulty.

Hard! The difficulty of this arrangement is that it forces to keep open the way in the entire circuit, to place the box in the top right.

This is one of the more beautiful levels of Sokoban Perfect. If you prefer a version easier but elegant, I recommend also the mine (The beautiful world of remodels 3 #13), here.

This is another beautiful level of Sokoban Perfect. The version of York Shen only adds a box, but greatly complicates their solution.

Difficult arrangement. Přemysl has found free spaces where there seem to be no. My rating difficulty: 7.

This is one of my favorite arrangements. Difficult storage. This arrangement is almost identical to the previous arrangement of GRIGoRusha (version c, 2004.1.7; see Remodel Club #58): the only difference is that in this version of zhenying has moved a box to I4. Is likely that zhenying did not know the earlier arrangement of GRIGoRusha.

Difficulty: 7
Best moves/pushes: 3219/1210 (sokobano)

Another classic level of Sokoban Perfect. This arrangement of GRIGoRusha is very tight.

Original level divided into two parts, and in which we must move the boxes from one part to another. It can be speculated that the author of this excellent level of old look is the same as that of the previous level (SP #302), since they were published consecutively in Sokoban 2 (1984).





Author: Masaki Ishino + York Shen
Title: Sokoban Perfect #306 b-2
Comment: rearranged 9 goals
Date: 1989. Remodel: c. February 2007
Difficulty: 7.5
Best moves/pushes: 8168/1904 (Findus)

It is the last level of Sokoban Perfect and one of the most difficult and arduous to solve in this collection. This version of York Shen change of place 9 goals, which obliges to use the storage area for storing some boxes on an interim basis, and forced to move the boxes by two rows of the storage area (exits out a box at the bottom, comes inside another box above).
