Despite the outside-the-box premise and the unboxing mechanic, this package is a by-the-numbers platformer with a few rough edges. ‘Feel’ is a huge part of a platformer and in that regard, Unbox: Newbies Adventure is fine for the majority of the time, that is, until the physics decide to freak out.
All in all Unbox is a quirky, wacky little platformer, which does a lot right. Things like smooth, weighty controls, great music and solid gameplay ensure that it's worth a look. That said, it's a bit of a shame that there's not more variation in what you do here, and that it lacked the final layer of polish that turns good titles into great games. Platformers still work in 2016, and it's a testament to developer Prospect Games that Unbox proves that.
While Unbox has some fun moments, I mostly enjoyed it for its mechanics and not because I found myself having all the much fun. I'm sure there are plenty of players who would find more in this title, but I just saw missed potential.
