About this game
Content Rating: Everyone
Well, fear not—Qbby is no ordinary box. Using his four startling new powers, you must solve hundreds of puzzles across 18 deadly worlds. Create boxes to climb, hover, warp, and bomb your way to salvation! Whether you're a newcomer or an old vet, thinking outside the box has never been more fun. Scattered across many challenging worlds, Black Smoke and other new hazards threaten to destroy Qbby. Survive vicious winds, viscous water, and more on your mission to rescue the mysteriously cute little wonders known as Qbabies. Each Qbaby you rescue will offer a new power: hit high buttons with a Boxrocket, destroy parts of the environment with a Bombox, teleport with a Warpbox, and even levitate a Remotebox. To the victor goes the goodies: earn new in-game costumes, comics, music, and challenge worlds by beating levels or tapping amiibo. Tap a Kirby™ series amiibo™ figure to receive a costume based on the tapped character! King Dedede box, anyone?

Bye-Bye BoxBoy! is being billed as the last of the BoxBoy! trilogy and if this is where things truly end I think that’s for the better. Qbby is great and this monochrome world is wonderful, but I feel as though its basic puzzle formula is on the cusp of getting stale. If we do see more of this boxed boy, I hope his next adventure is something more substantial.
Despite the title, Bye-Bye Boxboy does not feel like the conclusion of a trilogy. The second game added more variables to the main puzzle-solving mechanic, but the third entry feels new and different. I would absolutely play another Boxboy if it continues to experiment with abilities like it has here. But if Bye-Bye Boxboy does mark an end for HAL’s quirky puzzle series, then it ends on a high note.
This is one of those games that just kept going. There were multiple instances where I thought I just finished the last world and then more stuff would unlock over and over again.
