SokoChess White is a puzzle game about pushing Chess pieces into their destination and overcoming various obstacles. I was given a chance to play the game and share my thoughts, so here is my first look.
A copy of this game was provided for the purposes of this review.
As already said, SokoChess White is a puzzle game where, using various Chess pieces, you have to overcome obstacles to get the pieces in the right place. The pieces operate just like they do in a normal game of Chess, so you have to strategize how best to move within the limitations provided. There is no opponent, so it is just you versus the puzzle. There are 70 different puzzles that increase in difficulty as you go, so there are hours of fun to be had.
One thing I noticed from the start is how smooth the game is, along with how aesthetically pleasing it is. The developers had definitely put a lot of care and attention into this game, and I appreciate that.
I will say that I am not great at chess, so I was not great at this game. If you have a stronger understanding of the movement mechanics in Chess, you’ll likely find this game a little easier to get a grasp of, and then the challenge would come from the puzzles themselves. And if you want to get better at understanding Chess piece movement, this game can do that too.
Overall, I find the mix of Chess and Sokobahn to be a creative idea that Daisy Games did a great job of implementing. If you like puzzle games, definitely check it out.
SokoChess White will be available on Steam on March 3, 2023.
