BOXBOY! + BOXGIRL! may start off pretty simple, but it gets tricky pretty quickly. So let’s get started on the single-player segment: World 16 The Last World.
As there is a lot to cover, you may stumble across a solution to a level that may either be incomplete or not to the best it could be. If you have any solutions, please be so kind as to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be sure to provide credit if we use it.
Boxes Used: 26
In the middle, make a six-boxed right hook above you and pull yourself up to the right platform. Then make a single box and push it down to the right onto the spikes. Fall onto the box and push the diamond boxes all the way to the left onto the spikes. Make another six-boxed right hook and get up to the right platform again. Then make enough boxes to the left to push the other diamond boxes on top of the other, only to retract those boxes after. Then make one box to the right and jump to grab onto the ledge and pull yourself up.
For the second part, make five boxes in this order: right x2, up, right, up and jump to hook onto the top-left platform. Then stand on the right edge and make six boxes to push the diamond boxes down, only to retract them once again. Make a single box to the right and jump over to the other side, and then you can drop down to grab the Crown.
Push the other diamond boxes to the far left and into the spikes, covering the red silhouette. Now head to the far right, make another six-boxed right hook above you and proceed to the door.

Make a six-boxed right hook and pull yourself up into the cement. Clear up the next two columns by making four boxes in this order: right x2, down, left, retract them and wiggle down. Then make six boxes in this order: right x3, up x2, right and press Y. Another six boxes in this order: up, left, up x3, right; following up with two boxes: up, right.
Now that you’re above the corner laser cannon with a cement block in between, make five boxes to the right, retract them and wiggle through. Then make a four-boxed left hook and press Y to collect the first Crown.
Drop down, make six boxes to the right and retract them, make one box to the right, press Y and wiggle your way through the rest.
For the second Crown, make six boxes in this order: up x2, right, up, right x2, retract one and pull yourself up. wiggle to the right, make five boxes in this order: right, down x3, retract them and jump down. Then make one box left to pull yourself through and grab the Crown.
Wiggle your way out to the right, make a six-boxed right hook and pull yourself up to the door.

Make a single box to the right, spring up via the spring and shoot it at the blue button.
For the red button, do the same thing but with a four-boxed right hook to the right of you (right, up x2, right).
Make three boxes to the right, spring upwards and make a fourth one in midair, hooking onto the ledge. Pull yourself in to get the Crown and make three boxes in this order: right, down, left, pressing down the button and allowing you to jump over the spikes and back down to safety.
For the last section, stand to the right of the spring, make three boxes to the left and when you’re sprung upward, make another box left and one down to cover the button. Drop down and make for the door.
Boxes Used: 33
Make one box to the right and jump to the first moving block when it’s at the bottom-left of its trajectory. Then make a three-boxed left hook above you and jump to the left when that block is in the top-right corner, jumping to the other in the bottom-right corner. Then make a three-boxed right hook above yourself and get up to the ledge.
For the Crown, make four boxes to the left, have the last box teetering on the edge, and jump to the Crown, making sure to land back on the boxes and not fall down.
For the next section, make a three-boxed right hook above yourself and pull up to the first moving block. To make it to the next block to the far left, make five boxes to the left and jump to hook onto it. To get to the top block, wait until you are in the top-right corner of the trajectory and quickly make a five-boxed right hook above yourself to get up.
For the second Crown, make a four-boxed left hook above yourself really quickly when moving across from top-left to top-right.
Drop back down to the box below, make five boxes in this order: right x4, up and place it on the rightmost block so that it’ll press the blue button down and you can get up to the door.
Boxes Used: 10
Stand on the ledge and make three boxes in this order: right, down, right. With that, drop down onto the zappers and go through the warp tile, only to come out on the other side and hop up into the next gap to pull yourself through.
Stand on the next ledge, make four boxes in this order: right, down, right and jump down to the warp tile. On the other side, you can hop to the left and collect the Crown before you make your way to the right.
For the second Crown and the door, stand on the edge and make four boxes in this order: right, up, right x2 and jump across and through the warp tile. This will allow you to fall onto the Crown and you can hop your way up to pull yourself up to the ledge.

Wait for the drill platform to go into the blue button and jump onto it. Then before it disappears, make three vertical boxes upwards and throw them onto the spikes to the right. With this, you’ll be able to jump from them to the end and the drill platform won’t be able to reach the button again.
Next, stand on the leftmost red platform block and wait for the drill platform to hit the red button. When it does, you’ll need to make a box to the left as you are falling and hook onto the left platform where the drill cannon is. Wait for the next drill platform to shoot out and get onto it.
You’ll need to be really quick to get this Crown. Position yourself on the drill platform so that you are on the second-to-left block (if you can imagine this one being divided into four blocks). As you are being shot to the right, make one box right and another down, lifting yourself up from the platform; once the drill platform goes into the red button, make two more downwards to collect the Crown as shown below. Then quickly retract all four boxes and make a five-boxed right hook above yourself to get up to the top ledge before the drill platform disappears.
For the last section and the second Crown, make three-boxed backwards L and position it on the blue platforms to the far-right. When the drill disappears, making the platforms disappear, the boxes will fall on the spikes and you want to be on top of the boxes. Now jump onto the next drill platform and grab the Crown.
You’ll then want to do what we did and make three boxes vertically and throw them onto the spikes. Have the drill platform go into the top box and use it as a bridge to get to the door.

Stand underneath the blue pillar, make four boxes in this order: up x2, left x2 and shoot it to the left. This will allow you to get through, but make sure to walk right before you get crushed.
Next, stand on the first blue pillar, make four boxes in this order: left, up, right, up and shoot it to the left, allowing you to jump to the next pillar and grab the Crown. Then dismantle the boxes and you’ll be lifted back up.
For the last section and the second Crown, it’s all about timing. Make three boxes horizontally to the right and shoot them rightward. The boxes will activate the red button first, freeing the lasers, but we want to move as soon as they are covered again and before the platform starts to move – it’s a small window, so it may take you a few (dozen) times. When you get over to the last platform, press X to dismantle the boxes, lifting you up towards the Crown.
This level had us well and truly stumped, so a ginormous thank you goes out to William F for their help!

Stand just to the right and above the blue silhouette, make three boxes to the left and place it down so that the rightmost box is half in line with the silhouette. Slam down on the left box three times to cover it.
For the second section and the Crown, stand underneath the Crown and make one box left and four down so that you lift yourself up into it. Then hop on over to the right on the ledge.
Next, make a five-boxed staircase so that the leftmost box is just above the red silhouette (right x2, up, right, up) and slam them down to cover the silhouette and to proceed onwards.
For the Crown, throw a single box just below it and jump down to collect it. Then jump back to the left where we started.
From here, make five boxes in this order: right x2, up x2, right and jump to the right so that you can hook onto the ledge and pull yourself through.
For the final section, stand just above the red silhouette and make five boxes in this order: right, down, left, down x2 and slam them all the way down so that it covers the silhouette. Jump back onto the left ledge from the right step and facing right, make five boxes in this order: right, up x3, right. Jump to hook onto the floating platform and pull yourself up. Stand on the right ledge and make five boxes vertically. Throw them down on top of the blue silhouette, jump on top of them and slam them down. Once that covers the blue silhouette, you can make for the door.
And with that, congratulations on completing BOXBOY! + BOXGIRL!’s A Tale for One.
