A rousing send-off for one of Nintendo’s strangest mascots, and a satisfying conclusion to one of the best puzzle franchises of the last few years.

Bye-Bye Boxboy marks a high point for the series, and has some of my favorite puzzles in the trilogy

Bye-Bye BoxBoy! is being billed as the last of the BoxBoy! trilogy and if this is where things truly end I think that's for the better. Qbby is great and this monochrome world is wonderful, but I feel as though its basic puzzle formula is on the cusp of getting stale. If we do see more of this boxed boy, I hope his next adventure is something more substantial.

A great conclusion to this underappreciated puzzle series, Bye-Bye BoxBoy! is a must buy for anyone who enjoyed the previous games. It also serves as a nice jumping on point, giving players tons of new, fun puzzles to work through with some cool new mechanics.

Bye-Bye Box Boy! is a fitting farewell to a beloved sleeper hit. Its minimalist charm and some great puzzle mechanics grant a feeling of excitement for which all puzzle games should strive. I would love to see Qbby star on the Switch, but until then, this game marks the end of an amazing series.

Housing over 180 cubed filled levels to solve at a bargain price ... , it's easy to recommend Bye-Bye Boxboy to anyone who enjoys a good puzzle game.

HAL Laboratory has managed to bring innovative solutions and interesting mechanics into the old concept. Puzzles are still cleverly constructed, but unlike the previous game new mechanics evenly distributed throughout the story, constantly bringing fresh experience.

And that sums it all up. Bye-Bye Boxboy! packs a lot of punch for its size. Its combination of platforming and puzzle-solving is unique, and its simple premise gets complex early in the game. The additional content is anything but slim, and not only adds, but enhances the experience of the game. The developers did a great job of crossing classic platforming with new puzzle-solving to create a new style of game that exercises the mind.
