Discover a new world of intergalactic challenges with puzzle game Sokobalien! Embark on a journey and become the builder of the largest space farm in the galaxy. Take on the role of a fearless alien determined to create a farm of epic proportions. Your mission is to push cows, sheep, pigs, and chickens, ensuring that the UFO beams abduct them. Be prepared for increasingly complex challenges as you will need to use your strategic skills and problem-solving abilities to overcome obstacles and achieve success...


Abducted farm animals in this simple puzzle game

Sokobalien! is a top-down sokoban inspired game where you abduct cows, sheep, pigs and chicken to your own space farm. It's a very simple game. Use the controller to push animals and elements, each with their own mechanic characteristics, throughout the level. But be careful. Only the animals indicated by the beam can enter the abducting area.

The game starts at a steady pace, just to get you used to the mechanics of moving things around. And, once you get your head around elements, new challenges are introduced. It doesn't take too long for the challenges to ramp up, and you'll find yourself having to stop and think very carefully before moving forward. If you do realise you've taken a wrong step, you can take back moves to work out where you went wrong. Or, if you really mess up, you can simply reset the level.

As you progress you earn credits which can be exchanged for new "hats" that your alien can proudly wear. Overall there are 30 hats to collect and 100 levels to complete. Sokobalien! is a fun, cheap, independent puzzle game.
