Solver Statistics

From Sokoban Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Sokoban solvers are programs that solve sokoban levels. There are many programs available that can solve Sokoban levels (see Sokoban solvers).

There are different solver types:

  1. Solvers which just try to find any solution
  2. Solvers which try to find push optimal solutions
  3. Solvers which try to find push optimal solutions with best moves
  4. Solvers which try to find move optimal solutions
  5. Solvers which try to find move optimal solutions with best pushes

Usually a solver is designed to just find any solution. If the solution is to be optimized an optimizer program can be used (Optimizers).

To get an impression of what levels are solvable by which solver here are some statistics.

The statistics show that the different solvers have advantages and disadvantages depending on the level type. Therefore it's worth trying several solvers when a level seems unsolvable. It's highly level-dependent on how a solver performs.
