Description

Art Style: Boxlife is a puzzle game. Paper squares are on the game field, visualized from a 45 degree isometric view: the player's aim is to expediently cut out and fold it, composing squares into boxes.

Apart from a tutorial mode showing the basics of gameplay to beginners, two game modes are given: R&D and Factory. The Research & Development mode works as puzzle mode: predetermined shapes of paper are given in each stage, and everything must be made into a box. Factory mode features a time limit and unlimited paper from that as many boxes as possible have to be obtained, while letting the minimum paper possible be wasted. After early levels, bombs will periodically drop onto the screen, having to be enclosed into a box and timely eliminated, otherwise the paper on every side of it will be made useless by the explosion. The score at the level's end will consider paper squandered, boxes successfully shaped and bombs burst. Results are rewarded with money, that can be used to decorate and enrich a cubic country-like environment, appearing as the protagonist's living place.
