Prachka

Although this Flash puzzler is similar to another sliding block puzzle game in its class, what I find special about this one is its presentation and execution. A name I will refer to as Orbox (Prachka), the game was developed by a Russian who goes by the name Rubilon (his real name is Arseniy Shklyaev), and he has made it available to play on his Gamebalance website along with several other games he created. Babel Fish translates the name as "The Laundress Game", though the meaning seems to have been lost in the translation.

On the opening screen of the game, click on "Начать игру" to begin a new game. The goal of Orbox is to navigate the blue and yellow blinking box to the red goal—in the fewest moves possible—using just the arrow keys for control. One key press will send the box moving in that direction, and it will keep moving in a straight line until another object deflects it or causes it to come to rest. If the box goes off the board, you must start the level again. Also, the game does not save your progress, nor does it provide a password system to start again at a desired level. This is the only significant downside to an otherwise excellent game.

The game is based on a familiar puzzle game that has been around for years. Although I can't place the game's origin, Rubilon has added his own designs and graphic effects that make this version all his own. A feature I found especially helpful was the little graphic bubbles that highlight the path you take as you move around the play field. This helps to orient yourself in later levels where the solutions are quite complex. The level design ramps up in difficulty at a very comfortable pace, allowing someone unfamiliar with the game to jump right in and begin having fun. As the levels progress, unique new devices and objects are added to keep the game feeling fresh and challenging. A fun little puzzler in a very pretty package.

Play Orbox

Update: Rubilon has also made an English version of the game, and called it Orbox. The review above was modified to reflect the new given name.

Has anybody got past lvl 13 (I think it's 13, might be 14) ... It's just impossible (or I'm missing somthing!)
Nice game though!

Finished with a 20815.

I suppose I could go back and do it all again without the screw ups and get a much lower score, but that's not really worth it.

As for level 13 or 14, I can vouch that they're possible, but I don't remember them, so I can't help.

Yeah - I did get past 13 eventually ... but then got stuck on 19!

How many levels are there?

The last level is a "boss monster" of sorts.

wow! how addictive?! finally managed it though - 21890, is that bad?

i just finished the last level, score of 21380

i found the last level to be the most fun... the most annoying level was 21, having blocks off the screen you cant see and rearanging all the blocks each time you screwed up, most rearangements of which i swear were imposible to be solved

also i think the aim is to get a high score, cause retracing your steps lowers your score, and if you are against a wall, holding down the direction key towards that wall will slowly lower your score

but yeh, cool game :P

:D - I'd say not at all bad if you managed to finish the game ;D

Mongle - nice assessment. I actually thought a lower score was better, but I believe you disproved that theory.

For lvl 13

This solution is for the aspect where you start in the lower left, and the goal is at the top of the screen. When the aspect is different, the solution path will be the same, but you'll have to figure out how to adjust the keys accordingly...

Up, right, up, left, down, left, up, right, down, left, up, right, up, right, down, right, up, left, up, left, up.

Cheers,

Chris

"ok, chris, I have the exact same aspect as you, yet I always fly off the screen on the fifth step. I think you forgot something"

I just tried it again, and it worked ok. Perhaps you are looking at a different aspect? The solution is for the aspect where you start in the lower left, and the end is pretty much center at the top.

Whew, finally beat it with a score of 20480 :)
I had thought the one with the rotating green, blue, and red blocks was going to be harder than it was.
And I still don't understand the level with the seemingly impossible blocks that changed every time you died.

Make a walkthrough using pictures? Gee, that's going to be hard work. I know, because I've just finished making walkthroughs for every level.

At homepages.paradise.net.nz/~pmw57/orbox you will find walkthroughs for this great game that let you flip the walkthrough horizontally and vertically, to match your own level display.

Why do all you people try to take the fun out of this game by using all these technical term and actually helping people? If you can't beat the game then give up; it's better than cheating and asking for help. Also, great game.

I think that's a matter of opinion, Rpodnee, and every person is a bit different than you are.

And that is what makes the world such a delightful place to live in. =D

Rpodnee - I'm glad there is help if it's wanted. Sometimes I just get sooo frustrated, and getting help is preferable to kicking my cat (just kidding, of course)

It looks like it flips and mirrors differently each time... maybe only in the further levels. Interesting. (translation: good luck giving/getting step-by-step instructions for any one level)

Jay, I think the game/puzzle you are reminded of is called "Lunar Lockout" by Binary Arts.

As soon as I saw this entry I ran upstairs to find.. the board. My sister has lost the pieces. Damn sisters.

(I could be wrong, I don't know if Binary Arts sell things in America and if you've played it.)

I actually think the goal might be to get the least points, the reason being that even if you retrace your steps, you get points. So, the less points you get, typically, the more direct route you've taken. I think that it can be a goal to do it either way.
