PocoMan!

Copyright 1996-2019 Sleepless Software


Welcome to the world of PocoMan! A logic and strategy game featuring the clever and funny character PocoMan. A 21st century super-hero of microscopic proportions!

Your job is to assist PocoMan in moving all of the treasures to the marked floor positions (see the example below) allowing him to escape to the next level. Sounds simple, right? Don't be too sure!


Level 1: Diamonds

Even with his super powers, PocoMan can only push the treasures around the maze. He can't pull them or push more than one at a time. But try to overlook these shortcomings, because after all, he is a super-hero.


PocoMan: 21st Century Super-hero of Microscopic Proportions!

PocoMan's latest adventure has landed him in real trouble. He's caught in one of his enemy's most cruel traps. This one has 50 of the most difficult mazes he has ever come across. His only hope of escaping back home is to solve all 50 mazes! The difficulty of each maze increases as he progresses through them.
