A welcome comeback for Nintendo's most minimalist mascot, that justifies itself with an extremely entertaining co-op mode.

The newly introduced cooperative puzzles and some of the new concepts are where BoxBoy + BoxGirl shine the brightest, like a yellow laser striking down pain. Even with a bit too much of a samey feel now four games in, and some performance issues when the levels and abilities get complex, BoxBoy + BoxGirl is a swell puzzle outing for the Switch.

Unfortunately, the game is a little too easy, especially for those of you not worried about collecting every crown. The hint system provides too much of a safety net that is far too easy to fall back on. Thankfully, though, the series clever puzzles are as entertaining as they ever have been and keep the pesky frame rate issues and low difficulty from boxing you out of enjoying Qbby’s latest adventure.

Even after three games, HAL Laboratory is still able to introduce new skills, puzzles and challenges, now with a coop campaign. A game as simple as addictive, that even if it doesn't take the formula one step ahead, and without a very well known name behind, if offers a good chunk of accessible challenges for all kind of players.
