If you’re one of our dedicated readers, you’re likely aware of the fact that we go bonkers for a good puzzle game. In fact, there’s very little in life that we enjoy more.
The game is a delightful (and quite colorful) entry into the genre, sporting a unique concept, loads of fun levels, and absolutely stunning graphics. For our full thought about Box-E, you need only to slide on down below the break!
Concept and Gameplay
The concept behind Box-E is rather easy to describe, but that does not mean the gameplay is easy to master.
To beat each level that the app offers—there’s 25 of them, by the way—you’ll need to direct a cube to the end of the stage, coloring as many of the blocks in-between as possible. To move your piece, just flick a finger on the corner of the direction you’d like to go.
And that’s it! You can pick-up how the game works in a matter of seconds, but we promise you: it will take a lot longer than that before you nail this one down. The game throws lots of curveballs at the player.
For instance, there are switches that color the board, as well as disappearing glass boxes that encourage you to move very quickly. The variations don’t end there, but suffice it to say, there’s enough depth to this gameplay to keep anyone entertained.
There’s also quite a lot of incentive to return to each of the 25 levels included here. Getting as many blocks as possible before the end isn’t easy—and it only gets harder. All in all, we greatly enjoyed the challenge, as well as the fresh gameplay.
Graphics and Design
It goes without saying, too: Box-E is one good looking game. The title sports bright colors, a warm and inviting atmosphere, excellently selected music, and an overall aesthetic that we just can’t get enough of. The controls are simple as well, requiring little more than a finger flick to get things rolling.
Overall, we wouldn’t dare ask more from Box-E in the graphics department. It’s a brilliantly designed game with an interface to match.
Do we wish that Box-E came with more levels, more innovations, and just a tad . . . more? Absolutely we do! However, for what you’ll get here, the price of $1.21 is much more than fair. The game offers solid action, and entertaining premise, and a unique hook we’ve not seen anywhere else. To us, that’s all serious points in Box-E’s favor.
Sum total, Box-E gets an almost perfect rating from us, as well as our hearty recommendation for the puzzler in you.
