    Review BYE-BYE BOXBOY!

    A fond farewell

    Nintendo has been on something of a roll with surprise announcements lately, and one of them was the localisation of the third and final game in the BoxBoy trilogy, BYE-BYE BOXBOY! If you’ve already played the first two games, then this should come as no surprise — BYE-BYE BOXBOY is excellent. If you haven’t played another...

About The Game

Square off against the odds in BYE-BYE BOXBOY!, a charming 2D puzzle-platformer available exclusively from Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS family systems. Join Qbby, a conundrum-solving cube, on an all-new adventure where you'll need to box clever and ingeniously navigate your way through more than 180 brainteasing levels.

A grand adventure

Determined not to be boxed in, Qbby and his pals board a spaceship and go planet hopping! Each world they visit brings exciting new challenges, unique play styles and even different colour schemes, so the action never gets dull.

Pit your wits against oodles of obstacle-filled levels, including new stages where you'll need to think outside the box and ensure a safe passage for both Qbby and the adorable Qbabies. Create boxes out of thin air to build bridges, hit switches and reach riches! Whether you're tracking down crowns, conjuring up laser-beam-blocking barriers or summoning a spike-shielding stairway, there's always something to keep this clever cube on his toes.

Game cubes

Just like in the original BOXBOY! game, Qbby can spawn a single set of boxes – only this time, boxes can take on incredible new powers, allowing for even more puzzling opportunities. Some boxes can soar to the skies with the power of rocket propulsion, explode to open up new paths, or even teleport Qbby from one place to another.

Testing trials

For a tougher test, you can take on Challenge Worlds – strange places where the rules have been changed and the difficulty ramped up. Can you complete levels without throwing boxes? How about jumping? Conquer stages as efficiently as possible to claim the elusive crowns scattered throughout, and if you make a mistake, use the instant reset function to go back to square one.

Big spender

By besting levels, you can earn medals to spend on various in-game goodies, like new challenges, comic strips and music tracks. You can even unlock fresh looks for Qbby to try out. Hey, he's a squid now! Stay fresh, Qbby.

And of course, if you already own BOXBOY! or BOXBOXBOY!, all your costumes will carry over. That's one smart wardrobe!

You can unlock new costumes with amiibo, too!

BOXBOX bonus!

Calling brainboxes everywhere! If you own both BOXBOY! and BOXBOXBOY! on your Nintendo 3DS system, you'll be able to unlock cool bonuses in BYE-BYE BOXBOY! Take on the adventure as the fearless Qucy, and play with a somehow familiar, old-school colour scheme. Retrotastic!

Don't own Qbby's early adventures? Not to worry – puzzling perfectionists can get their hands on these rewards by collecting every crown in the game. All hail King Qbby
