Stockem: A Sokoban Clone
Stockem is a clone of the classic Sokoban game with its own unique levels. A puzzle game with a simple premise, Stockem starts easy but soon gets fiendishly difficult. The aim is to fill all of the “parking spaces” with “marbles” by simply pushing them around a maze-like board.

- For Windows, simply run the installer and then start the game from your start menu.
- For other systems (Mac, Linux or even DOS), unpack the tar ball to an empty directory of your choosing then run
STOCKEM.EXE. For Mac and Linux, you will need to use DOSBox or similar.
- Use cursor keys to move the “pusher”
- Press F5 to move onto the next (harder) level.
- Press F10 to quit when you've finished playing.
- Press any other key to restart the level. Useful if (when?) you get stuck.
Notes for the technically inclined
This game was produced on an Amstrad 286 PC in my bedroom some time between 1992 and 1996. The code was written in QBasic which was included with certain versions of MS-DOS and Windows 9x. The bundled QBasic had just an interpreter and no compiler - programs had to be run from the source in the IDE. This version has been compiled using the QuickBasic compiler which I found at university in 1996. Unfortunatley, I've lost the source code so I can't share this too. For more information on QBasic, and more QBasic games, a good starting point is QBasic.com.
