ALL ABOUT BOXBOY!:

For those who derive satisfaction from collecting items, on the other hand, this game includes collectibles in every level.


BOXBOY! IS FUN:

Each stage has a crown, or more, that can be optionally collected. Collecting these crowns are satisfying, but the challenge comes from a “box limit” dictated by each stage.

Crowns must be collected before you have created an allotted number of boxes otherwise the crown cannot be acquired.

You bet you will be playing these stages over and over again until you have all of the crowns. Luckily, as said above, replaying each stage is made so easy. It is like Nintendo thought of everything in this little package!

BOXBOY! IS CHALLENGING FUN:

Box Boy is a Bucket List worthy game I recommend you check out. There is no other game quite like it, and no other protagonist quite like Box Boy. Get boxing, today!

ALL ABOUT BOXBOY!:

the box mechanics is when you will really start using your noggin. How am I suppose to make it over this wall? Place one box on the ground, hop on it, and scale the wall, that’s how.


EVEN MORE FUN WITH BOXBOY!:

How about that hole over yonder? Stop trying to jump over it, daredevil, and make a platform instead. The game invites players to use their brains and creativity to solve each stage, and it is quite forgiving of failure.

Each stage can be restarted from the beginning, or the last checkpoint, which is a good thing when the game becomes more challenging.

BOXBOY! IS CHALLENGING FUN:

As you progress, threats are added in the form of instant death lasers, instant death enemies, and instant death pits. And spikes.

Every game needs instant death spikes. But these deterrents only make completing stages that more satisfying.  . . .

The following information comes from Backlog and Bucket List Gaming ISSUE 2:


BOXBOY! RAMPS UP:

At first, I thought the beginning stages were a little too easy, but then I realized the first few stages were essentially tutorial stages. I would soon find out I would be wishing for simpler times when the puzzles eventually became brain-twisting masterpieces by the end of the game.


MORE FUN WITH BOXBOY!:

But what exactly is Box Boy, the character and the game? Great question! Box Boy is a square box that can create boxes that remain attached or released.

The amount of boxes he can create is dictated by each stage. A player can use the boxes as platforms, steps, or as hooks to latch on to a higher ledge among a handful of other ways that are ingenious.

BOXBOY! IS CHALLENGING FUN:

This is what makes this game so much fun . . .

The following information comes from Backlog and Bucket List Gaming ISSUE 2:


ALL ABOUT BOXBOY!:

I first saw Box Boy during one of Nintendo’s advertising videos, and I was immediately interested by the game’s simplistic graphics and premise. You are a box, completing puzzles, in a black and white world. Simple enough. Turns out, it was fun enough, too.


FUN WITH BOXBOY!:

The player controls the character Box Boy, a little square box, who is on a mission to save his planet and friends from certain darkness. No, I am not making this up.

There are no computer generated videos or voice acted monologues, yet the story is communicated through relatively short, understandable cut scenes every few stages.

BOXBOY! IS CHALLENGING FUN:

The game’s heart, however, is not its story but its gameplay—easy enough to comprehend but difficult to master . . .

LIMBO SATISFIES:

Limbo is satisfying (no wonder it is on ten platforms and counting) in the way that it asks the player to find a solution to a problem and then after heartbreak, deaths by electrocution and drowning and impalement and other means, comes triumph in solving the problem.

It is a game that has spoken to many different gamers.

FUN FOR LIMBO:

For the gamers that want to pick up a game and play immediately, Limbo.

For those that are overwhelmed by all the buttons on the controller and wished a game only used a button or two, Limbo.

limbo-3-b

For players that want a story that is not told through an hour long cut scene, a game that can be beat in a handful of hours, a journey that tests your reflexes and puzzle solving abilities, well, that is going to be Limbo.

LIMBO IS A BUCKET LIST GAME:

Pick up this gray scale adventure today, clear your Saturday, and start the search for your sister. Limbo is a light in the darkness for anyone’s gaming Bucket List.

THE LIMBO BRILLIANCE:

It was the adventure, as well as the puzzles, along the way that kept me playing Limbo. For one, I really wanted to save my sister.The game’s simplicity is captivating. I needed to save my sister so I’m going to save her.

But then the puzzle aspect kicked in and my internal thought took over:

THE LIMBO THOUGHT PROCESS:

Oh, wait. There’s a crate.

What am I supposed to do with the crate? Let’s see. I can jump but do little else.

Can I push it? Cool. So, I guess I will push it into that lake. Crap! It is floating away. I need to jump on it quick.

limbo-2

Made it. I guess I will jump onto the land on the other side of the lake. Okay. What’s this? A sloped cliff.

Maybe I will climb it. Seems fine—oh no!

A boulder’s coming to get me. I died. The game reset and I am alive again. Good.

Now, how am I supposed to make it up that cliff without being squished?

LIMBO IS AN AWESOME ADVENTURE:

If you enjoy thinking like this for a good five hours or so, Limbo’s your game.

And it never stops asking the player to think or survey the environment, use tools that may seem like they are just part of the background, and solve tasks that seem simpler than they really are . . .

LIMBO is a certified Bucket List game that everyone should play before he or she “kicks the bucket”.

The following information comes from Backlog and Bucket List Gaming ISSUE 2:


SAY HELLO TO LIMBO:

I would like to introduce you to a game I bought twice—a game that is on several platforms, making avoiding this gem a hard thing to do—and a game with no on-screen display: Limbo. The next game to be added to your Bucket List.

Limbo Title Screen


WHAT IS LIMBO?:

Limbo is an adventure puzzle game where the player gets to control a little boy who wakes up in a dark, dreary forest who soon realizes he needs to search for his sister. But finding his sister is no easy task.

The long forest takes you to many places: into caverns, up trees, across lakes, up ladders, and face to face with dangerous . . . things. I will keep that secret for when you eventually play the game. I recommend avoiding videos of this short and sweet adventure.

WHY I ENJOYED LIMBO:

I was hooked the moment I began my journey. The graphics were immediately striking with the world being consumed in darkness only brightened by the rays of white light coming from the background.

I remember waiting for the game to start only to realize it already had—the lack of on-screen health bars, inventory, and display really helped in immersing me into the game world. But it was the adventure, as well as the puzzles, along the way that kept me playing . . .
