Personal review
Namida no Soukoban Special is the Famicom Disk System port of the famous box moving game Soukoban initially developed by Thinking Rabbit for Japanese homecomputer systems and eventually even successfully brought to the west. The goal of each level is to push boxes around onto designated places marked by a dot. A simple and addicting concept. The Famicom version features many levels and a leveleditor. There are also hidden special items under boxes which might give you some extra abilities, like being allowed to "pull" a box, instead of just pushing them. Graphics are the worst part of the game. Very few colors (reminds of me old DOS games with 4-color CGA-graphics) and underwhelming presentation. Having already seen several versions, this doesn't get me really excited. It is however one of the best versions you could get in the mid-80s and being able to save your progress on disk is a definite plus. You can optionally switch to a zoomed-in view of the level, but that only results in headaches from the horrible scrolling and less overview in larger levels.
