Pressing Start #4 | Boxboy!

Developed by: HAL Laboratory

Published by: Nintendo

Release Date: April 2nd, 2015

Started On: April 28th, 2017

Notes: I must shamefully admit that I haven’t finished Boxboy! I must also divulge that I bought Boxboxboy! and have never booted it up. And yet the third game in the series, Bye-Bye Boxboy! tempts me even though I’ve barely touched the series.

Well, I’ve set a goal to finish both of these games before nabbing the third one because there’s definitely an element of progression when it comes to the puzzles that’s worth tackling from the beginning. It also doesn’t hurt that there are unlockables for those who do so.

My main objective is to finish the main story mode and collect all the crowns within, but I don’t see myself doing the speedrun stuff. It’s the perfect kind of game to play as a chaser to the heavy RPG I’m currently playing as well as something you can boot up for a level or two before bed.

Pressing Start #3 | 1-2-Switch

Notes: Making a game plan for party games is kind of tricky. On one hand, I could consider that playing all that is on offer once is a good enough, but really the best way to get the most out of games like this is to play it over time so you can see the in-and-outs fully.
