Pandora’s Box is another Yaroze game based on block-pushing game, Sokoban. But this time, it’s in 3D.

Being in 3D adds a few difficulties, such as not being able to see where your targets are very easily, but you can jump, which gives you a better view. Sadly you can’t jump over the crates.

The game has 15 levels, and you can choose to play any of them from the menu screen. It is accompanied by some piano music, which switches to a faster tune when you are running out of time, to add to the panic.

I like Sokoban games, but Pandora’s Box is one of those cases where just because you can make it 3D doesn’t necessarily make it better.
