YOPAZ IceStar


Yopaz is a brand new Sokoban puzzler by Cedric Bourse which stars a happy chap who loves to collect stars. It's a GEM program but is slick, very smooth and even features ambient sounds on 4MB Atari STe computers.

It takes place in the vacuum of space, which means following the laws of physics: once Yopaz begins moving, he is committed to travelling in that direction until hitting an object. Stop, think, and take your time because you will need to use the ice blocks to manoeuvre yourself properly to collect all the stars. There are other oddities, like blocks that aren't ice but will instead teleport you out in a different place on the map. Also, there is an advanced mode for those with a sadistic desire to punish their brains even cunning levels - it's a KILLER choice, so be warned!!

Cedric Bourse, aka Orion_ (not Orion), has a website where you can download a playable demo and he is only asking for $4 to purchase the full game. An incredibly cheap asking price for such a brilliant puzzler!
