Storekeeper is a transport puzzle in which the player pushes boxes around a maze, viewed from above, and tries to put them in designated locations. Only one box may be pushed at a time, and boxes cannot be pulled. Advanced players also try to find shorter and shorter solutions, measured in stone pushes and man moves.
