A downloadable game for Windows

An original puzzle game with action and arcade elements. As a Stockboy, your job is to push barrels and balls into the proper places, as well as blow up excess inventory with bombs, lasers, and acid, and of course to deal with pests in the warehouse, like Piggies and Blobbies.

* Employee Training mode features 50 levels exploring the huge variety of tricks, traps, and puzzles you must solve.

* StockRoom mode has 52 more levels, putting your puzzle-solving skills to the test - can you become Employee Of The Year??

* Blow up tons of barrels at once to earn big combo bonuses.

* Besides using Bombs, try out the Laser, Detonator, and Acid, among other perfectly standard stockboy tools.

* Buy new modes and characters in the Gift Shop with your hard-earned Star Points.

( Once you've bought everything, you'll have well over 150 levels to play, including several 'arcade style' modes you'll come back to again and again to beat your high scores!

* The unique Profile system allows everybody in your family to store their own progress separately, as well as their own controls and even give their character its own unique appearance.

* The built-in Level Editor will have you cranking out your own fiendish puzzles in minutes!

* Online automatic add-on downloading features no longer function, sorry!

Install instructions

Stockaddon.exe is a collection of addons produced by Stockboy players, if you'd like to check them out! The automatic download feature no longer works, so this is the only way to get them.

Getting an error "Unable to find graphics mode" on Windows 10.

You should be able to get around that by running in windowed mode, put "window" at the end of the command line in a shortcut (like "c:\program files\stockboy\stockboy.exe window" for example).  It will be in a little window then, but it should work! It seems your video card doesn't want to do 640x480x256 color mode.

That didn't work for me. What did work was dgVoodoo2. Also tried cnc-ddraw, which worked for me in a Windows 10 VM (Windows Sandbox) but not on my main machine, weirdly enough.

Okay, I've added stockaddon.exe to the downloads on this page, grab it!

Do you still have a copy of the 1/3/11 and later version of stockaddon.exe? (That was the final version of the add-on installer before the latest site revamp.)

There weren't very many addons anyway, but there are plenty of levels in the original game at least.
