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.
