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!

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.

I had resisted for over a year and a half downloading anything but books on my kindle, so I finally broke down and grabbed this product largely because I wanted something other than words to stare at. This game reminded me of the battery-operated, single screen Disney handheld games bought for my children 20 years ago that I found recently and discarded for no longer operating. Having finally played "Pirate Stash" I am forced to admit that for a strategy puzzle (which I prefer over shooters) it was far more entertaining than the simplistic Disney handheld games and I am (almost) embarrassed to say that I am already on level 20 (sheesh!) I guess I'll have to keep it around and play some more later on....All right, already! It's a good game and you can't beat the price (there, I said it!)

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.

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.

In this fun puzzle game, you play the role of a pirate who can only push treasure chests - never pull them - around various mazes so that each one ends up on a big X, where it will be buried. It's a spatial-logical puzzle that requires thinking through your course of action and planning ahead. It starts with some quite basic puzzles that almost anyone could solve without too much trouble, and moves up to some quite challenging ones. Many of the later puzzles require lateral thinking - even when you have a clear path to the X, you may need to stop short to make room for another chest to pass. Or you may have to move a treasure chest away from the X to get closer to your goal.

The game comes with some nice shortcuts for later puzzles, which allow you to move the treasure chests quickly, so that you're concentrating on the puzzle rather than on playing with the controls. Each of the puzzles is separate, so you can put the game away and come back to it without losing your place. The puzzles are replayable, so if you don't finish in the least possible number of moves, you might want to go back and see if you can achieve a perfect score.

Currently this game is free, so I'd suggest you pick it up and give it a try!
