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.  . . .

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 . . .
