When you boil BoxBoy! + BoxGirl! down, it’s a spacial puzzle game that is a great way to pass the time. What elevates it from good to great is how HAL Laboratories took design disciplines from so many other excellent games. This cross-pollination has helped shape Qbby’s latest adventure into a must-have puzzle game for the Switch. From three campaigns to chasing badges, there is a surprisingly hefty amount of head-scratching puzzles that will pull its weight. Whether you are simply killing time or want to crack some puzzles with a friend, BoxBoy! + BoxGirl! is one puzzle game you should not miss.
BoxBoy! + BoxGirl! continues the series perfectly in its transition from 3DS to Switch. Tons of puzzles await players, including a standalone co-op adventure that feels like a logical extension for the series. Much of this content is locked behind long introductions though, making it a slow start for series and puzzle fans. Once you make it past that though, you’re back into the relaxing and enjoyable world of BoxBoy!
Unfortunately, the game is a little too easy, especially for those of you not worried about collecting every crown. The hint system provides too much of a safety net that is far too easy to fall back on. Thankfully, though, the series clever puzzles are as entertaining as they ever have been and keep the pesky frame rate issues and low difficulty from boxing you out of enjoying Qbby’s latest adventure.
