Product Description

Pirate Stash is a logic puzzle game that challenges you to hide all of your treasure chests on a deserted island.

X marks the spot as you push one or more treasure chests to be buried in designated hiding places. Maneuver your loot through a maze of obstacles, but be careful not to make the wrong move. You can only move one chest at a time and the chests cannot be pulled. When the treasure chests are all in place, you have solved the puzzle.

Your score for a puzzle is the number of times each chest is pushed, with a lower number of pushes being better. Achieve up to three stars on a puzzle. Gain one star for solving the puzzle, two stars for matching par for the puzzle, and three stars for a perfect score. Over 100 puzzles of increasing difficulty allow anyone, from beginners to experts, to challenge their minds. Can you beat them all?

If you like puzzle games, you'll love Pirate Stash!

5.0 out of 5 stars Captain Sokoban for the win June 11, 2011
Verified Purchase
There are plenty of Sokoban games out there. This one actually mentions Sokoban in the description, so I'll give credit for their credit.

You are pushing around treasure chests to ideal spots for burying them. It's well done, a very clean version, without any clicks being wasted.

Intro 5
Beginer 20
Intermediate 20
Advanced Training 3
Advanced 24
Expert 24
Bonus 22

That is a lot of Sokoban challenges, more than enough to keep anyone busy for awhile. Thankfully, there is just one version of the game on Kindle, and it's a good one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun June 9, 2011
Verified Purchase
This game is fun. Not much re-play value....once you see how to beat a map thats it, it has lost the challange. Nice thing is there are alot of maps (like 100 or so). Over all I'd say worth the two bucks if you are into puzzle games. Amazon Digital, I challange you to make a simple yet fun RPG game for us :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Sokoban Game June 17, 2011
Verified Purchase
Shiver me timbers, this is a great Sokoban game for the Kindle! The developers have taken the classic game and have added some great improvements. The most notable is the ability to teleport your pirate and automove your treasure chest. This feature saves a lot of time and frustration moving your pirate around. Another nice feature is that there are three levels of achievement per level. The first level of achievement (one star) is simply getting all of your chests to the "X"'s (regular Sokoban). You get the next level if you can achieve the objective in an average number of moves (par). You get 3 stars if you can do it in the fewest number of moves possible. It's also worth mentioning that this game has a nice unlimited undo function (believe it or not, I've played Sokoban games in the past where if you made one mistake ,you had to start over - ARGHHH!). With 118 levels this game is a solid value for $1.99.

5.0 out of 5 stars Argh... Have You Seen Me Booty, My Matey? September 22, 2011
Verified Purchase
After downloading this game, I learned that it's something called "Sokoban". I don't know what that is, but I certainly enjoyed playing Pirate Stash. Essentially, you push chests of "booty" (aka gold, treasure, goodies) around a maze to push the chests into predefined X's (you know, X's mark the spots) to keep them safe.

I really like logical and strategic games and this is a great but simple one. The graphics are very clear - right down to his peg leg and his footprints in the sand. There are 118 puzzles (if you count the introduction and advanced training puzzles) in 7 different categories, with each category growing progressively more challenging to solve. It includes the standard game features (restart, undo, timer, reveal solution, leave the game and return to it, etc.). The "Undo" is great in that you can reverse move after move rather than only being able to undo the last one. I also like that the timer doesn't start until you make your first move, giving you a bit of time to assess the board and plan your moves.

There is a "Teleporting" feature that's unlocked after the first 20 puzzles. Beam me up baby! Using this feature, you can select a place on the game board, and, if your pirate could walk there, he will be automatically moved to that space. Saves you a lot of clicking to get him to where he needs to be. The other feature that unlocks is the ability to just move the treasure chest. In the first games, the pirate must push the chests, but with this second feature, you can just select the chest and use the 5-way controller to move it and the pirate automatically follows behind.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Game June 23, 2011
By JVBS
Verified Purchase
This is a great game! I love that I can solve it, then go back and try to get a better score. I also like that I can view the solution up to a certain point, then stop. That way if I get stuck, I can just check out how to get past that particular spot and stop the solution.

I highly recommend this game for everyone.

4.0 out of 5 stars Simple Rules and fun July 14, 2011
By Turin
Verified Purchase
I wasnt familiar with this type of game and I approach it as a newbie who is interested in a new game for when I have some time to kill but dont want to start a book- doctors office, airplane flight etc.

Pirate Stash works very well for this. The rules are very simple so it will only take about 5 minutes until you are up to speed on how the controls work and what are the rules of play.

Likewise the game doesnt require a ton of context- the puzzle are independent and there are only about 5 or so solving techniques you need to suss out for yourself in order to solve them. By the time you get to the hardest level you will be brought along to the point where the Experts aren't too bad. About 10 minutes for the hardest puzzle.

There is also the concept of "par" and least possible moves so you can go back and try to improve your solving methods.

This isnt a super hard puzzle set, but they are tricky enough to be fun and short enough that they make a good time killer. Priced at $1.99 that makes it a good buy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not for Touch? December 4, 2011
When are we going to have this kind of game for the Kindle Touch?

I have held off for years on getting a Kindle because I wanted to play games as well as read with it, and I knew that being restricted to keyboard or 5-way pad input would frustrate me for my favorite types of games.

This Sokoban-type package is just the sort of thing I was thinking of, and just the sort of thing I want now.

When will we see it?

When will Amazon make it possible for Kindle owners to look for active content specifically, and by device?

Amazon is really stumbling on this - not remotely up to their usual standard.
