Sometimes simplicity is the best route to take when designing a game. HAL Laboratory certainly took that statement into consideration when they developed their Nintendo 3DS puzzle game called BOXBOY!
The game is exactly what it’s named, a boy who happens to be a box traversing through a wacky set of mazes trying to obtain black crowns, while avoiding obstacles that might kill him along the way. The idea of using a ‘box’, or sometimes a set of boxes, to get through these mazes is the main source of gameplay. Boxboy creates a certain amount of patterned boxes from his noggin; sometimes they hook onto ledges, sometimes they snake through spaces, and sometimes they create stairs/platforms for him to get from point A to B. Simplicity is the name of the game with BOXBOY!, so catching onto how the gameplay is used is anything less than difficult.
