Unsolvable Sokomania Levels

I have seen some posts about Sokomania levels that can't be solved. I would like to hear which ones, so I can remove them from the file and post a list in this forum.

I will go through the levels and post the unsolvable ones here for you. Give me a day or two. Smile

Levels 5 and 36 I have not been able to solve. I have spent a lot of time on them, but have not run them through the Sokoban Solver yet, so I cannot confirm 100% that they are unsolvable.

The following levels are confirmed unsolvable:

Level 32 - The lower-left set of goals cannot be filled. There is no space to get behind the final boxes and push them.
Level 34 - One box missing; the last goal cannot be filled.
Level 57 - One box near the upper-right is locked in a corner; it cannot be pushed.
Level 59 - The first push can be achieved by this: dllullldddrdrdddllllluululululullulllldddrdrdrddllllUU
After that, one of boxes would either become stuck against the bottom wall, or locked in a corner.
Level 60 - Right-center, two boxes cannot be pushed because a wall piece blocks access.
Level 64 - 1) There are 16 goals on the right, and only 15 boxes to fill them. Even so, the 15th box cannot be moved anywhere without getting stuck against a wall piece or the top wall.
2) There are 16 goals on the left, and one extra box. This extra box could fill the empty goal on the right, but it cannot get to it.
Level 69 - Once most of the goals are filled, a box near the center cannot go anywhere, which prevents the remaining three boxes from being pushed to their goals.
Level 71 - The goals cannot all be filled. There is always one remaining box that gets stuck against a wall.
Level 104 - Three lower left boxes cannot be moved without at least one of them being locked against a wall.

After Level 104 I have not yet solved or tried all the levels, so I can't say anything about them at this time. I will do them in the next couple days to find out, but the following levels in that range are confirmed solvable:

Level 105-122
Level 114
Level 118-120
Level 122
Level 124
Level 125

Hi!

I have received and published a new version of Sokomania. The changed levels are: 5, 32, 36, 57, 59, 60, 64, 69, 71, 104, 113, 121 and 123.

Level 34 was still bad, so I removed it.

EXCELLENT!!! I just had a quick look at the new versions of the levels, and they look perfect. Thank you! Now I can finally finish Sokomania! Smile

I also left a post for you in the Support forum, offering to test levels for you if you like. You have the best Sokoban I've ever played, and would love to help if I can.

Gotta go now and finish Sokomania, then tackle the new levels. woohoo! Biggrin
