I've completed another game! Box Boy!, the start of a long running puzzle-platformer series! Let's look at the first game and how it made me feel!
BOX BOY! is a great game at displaying new concepts with a simple, preliminary art style. Over the first few worlds, you start to get two friends, a girl and a longer block. You have to go over 17 worlds and over 100 stages to explore. You can also beat the game to get new worlds! The cutscenes are great and it's very sad when not only the longer block character but you and the girl have to become blocks in the ground! You can only jump one block and have to collect crowns however you can use boxes to get around and do the puzzle. It does circuit like things, a cool fluffy hair character that kills you if he contacts with you. My favourite thing to do is snake. It's very hard to snake as not very levels take advantage of it but if you can it's very easy. Also snaking is just funny to say because snaking is drifting in MKDS. :)

So, my feelings about the game are... that the puzzles are great, the platforming is cool and the characters are basic but lovable!
+ Good puzzle platformer.
+ Over 100 stages.
- Graphics are preliminary.
- Hints can ruin the game and are only 1 Playcoin.
- Black, white and grey.
4 Presentation
Very boring boxy graphics but it's as close as you can go.
8 Gameplay
Fun puzzle platformer! Everything is so fun and great. BOXBOY! is a great puzzle platformer gameplay-wise.
5 Lasting Appeal
Lots of worlds but hints can bring you to the dark side.

Overall (not an average)
It's a great game but the graphics let it down however it's not bad because HAL Labratory made it up.
