- This is the first game in the Soukoban series. For other games in the series see the Soukoban category.
This page reflects every version of the game whose title is Soukoban. However, not every version of the game published under this title is identical, as Soukoban has been released in several iterations since it was originally published in 1982. It was initially released as a simple puzzle game on many popular Japanese home computer platforms. It was followed up with an improved sequel in 1984, entitled Soukoban 2.
In 1985, Sega published their own conversion of the original game for the Sega SG-1000. In 1989, Pony Canyon released an updated version for the Game Boy which was partially based on Thinking Rabbit's Soukoban Perfect. It was released in the United States as Boxxle. In 1990, Riverhill Soft developed an updated conversion for the Sega Game Gear for Japan only.
