ESRB Rating: Everyone with Mild Fantasy Violence

Some of the puzzles in the BOXBOXBOY! game are way more puzzling than the puzzles in the original game.

That’s why we’re thinking way out of the box with these clever puzzle-bustin’ techniques. Check them out below!


Box Formations

Qbby may face danger from above, below, and both sides, too! You can try to shield our boxy hero with defensive techniques like Helmet, Shield, Helmet & Shield, Shielding Afro, and Shielding Beard.




If Qbby needs to slither through tight spaces or get to hard-to-reach spots, you can try to use various Snake moves like Slippery Snake, Stretching Snake, Sneaky Snake, and Shielding Snake.




Qbby sometimes gets himself into challenging situations. You can get creative by combining techniques into moves like Double Bridge, Armored Bridge Crossing, Double Shield, Assisted Hook, and Assisted Snake.
