Super Boy Allan (スーパーボーイアラン Sūpā Bōi Aran?) is an educational video game developed by Asmik Corporation for the Family Computer Disk System, and published by Sunsoft in 1987.[1]

Super Boy Allan is the second installment in Sunsoft and Asmik's Intelligence Game trilogy. It is preceded by Adian no Tsue (1986), and followed by Chisoko Tairiku Orudora (1987).[2]

In the game, Allan Colada journeys from his home in the foothills into the mountains to retrieve a remedy for his sister Leela's fever.

Gameplay[edit]

To progress through most game screens, the player must push, kick, or pull logs to clear a path to the exit, as well as to solve arithmetic equations and inequality statements involving fractions.[3]

The mechanics of the log-pushing puzzles are comparable to those in the Eggerland video game franchise, which in turn derive from Sokoban (1982). However, by using a rope (which are in limited supply), Allan can also pull a log away. Kicking a log toward an enemy defeats the enemy.

The design of the game world is patterned on Nintendo's action-adventure game The Legend of Zelda (1986).
