Soukoban Deluxe (倉庫番 デラックス, lit.: Sōkoban Derakkusu), which was released as Boxy Boy in the United States (and having no direct relation to the TurboGrafx-16 game of "Boxyboy", released in Japan as Soukoban World), is a puzzle arcade game that was released by Namco in 1990. It runs on the company's System 1 hardware, and is a graphically enhanced implementation of the then-8-year-old Japanese puzzle game phenomenon; it is also the first (and so far only) version of Soukoban that was officially released in arcades. While it features all the rules of the original Soukoban, it also has a timer that determines how long you will have to clear the current round before you are "kicked off" the cabinet - and even if you decide that you have to start the round over, the timer is not reset. If you run out of time, you can insert another coin to continue the round with a full timer; there are fifty-five in all.
