Sokoban was created by Hiroyuki Imabayashi in 1980, and won the first prize on a computer games contest. Two years later, Thinking Rabit, Mr. Imabayashi's company has released the first commercial version of Sokoban. The game has often been reproduced, and remains as addictive today as ever.

This game is truly a classic. Way better than tetris imho, because it's not as stressful.

I've always been wondering why they picked such shitty colors, though. Or was it that back in the days computers were all pink and teal?

That is CGA in all its 'glory'. There were only two possible colour palettes, with four colours each. This one is the uglier one, in my opinion, but it is also more common. The reason being that these colours are designed to be distinguishable even on the worst displays.
