The ultimate postal service has arrived... self-delivering cardboard boxes!

Unbox is a retro-inspired physics platformer about rolling cardboard boxes; enjoy an epic single player adventure and grab your friends for four-player fun in local multiplayer races and battles!

Global Postal Service is nearing bankruptcy and in an attempt to save themselves, they have created living, self-delivering boxes. Their latest cardboard creation, Newbie is here to save the day. Battle against the dastardly Wild Cards across huge worlds full of challenges, collectibles and boxy boss battles!

From tropical islands to frozen peaks, filled with collectibles and cardboard characters, Unbox takes you around the world to save GPS, defeat Boss Wild and his miniature minions. Find and complete challenges on each world to earn stamps and, once you have enough, it’s time to take on Boss Wild! Using the power of Unreal Engine 4, the world of Unbox is filled with physics fun: buildings will crumble and boxes will tumble in this explosive adventure!

It reminds you of those great 3D platformers of the 90s, but never manages to reach the same heights as they once did.

With no challenge beyond wrestling with the horrible controls, Unbox is a failed appeal to nostalgia that captures none of the warmth or playability of the games it admires.

6 / 10

With lacklustre multiplayer and a simplified single-player that timidly asks for only basic platforming skills, completion of race challenges that provide plenty of time even after a few screw-ups, and battles that allow unlimited lives with no time limit or enemy respawns, Unbox is definitely not something that should be played if looking for a challenge.

Unbox took me back to a time when games were about fun.
