Arrr! You are a pirate and your ship was hit by canon balls from your long time enemy "Evil Pirata”. This caused some holes in the ship deck and water is gushing through. Hurry up to move the barrels around the treasure chests and try to place them on the holes to stop the water and therefore rescue the ship before it sinks into the deep. Good luck!

The Barrels can only be pushed, never pulled, so you have to be careful not to push them into a corner where you can’t get them out again. You can only push one box at the time. You can move through the level freely using swipe gestures. Try to collect the gold coins by pushing a barrel over them.
Shifuban is based on the classic puzzle game Sokoban which was developed by Hiroyuki Imabayashi in the year 1982.
