BOXBOY! + BOXGIRL! may start off pretty simple, but it gets tricky pretty quickly. So let’s get started on the co-op segment: World 10 (Warp Portal Peekaboo).
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.

Step through the first warp portals and before BOXGIRL steps through the second, have BOXBOY place a single box underneath to cross the spikes.
Next, have one player stand on top of the other and the bottom player make three boxes above themselves (without letting go). Then the top player can make a three-boxed backwards L and throw it onto the spikes. Have the bottom player retract the boxes and then have both players go through the portal. With one player standing on top of the other again, the top player can now jump to grab the Crown.
Go back through the warp portal and make for the door.

Have one player throw a single box in the middle of the spikes. Then have the other player jump on top of the first player, have them both jump to the box then the top player jump through the portal. The now top player must now make three vertical boxes to the right in order to push in the red button. The bottom player can now make their way through, with the top player going back through the warp portal and doing the same thing.
For the Crown and the door, have one player stand on top of the other and jump to the ledge up top. Then have the bottom player go down into the ditch and make a three-boxed backwards L and hold it. Have the top player go through the walkthrough and land on top of the box, only for the bottom player to shoot it across and grab the Crown.
Then have the player in the room make a single box and throw it onto the spikes to the far left. Jump onto the box and through the warp portal. Now have the bottom player make a three-boxed backwards L as stairs and make for the door.

Have both player do as the tutorial scene above shows.
Next, have one player stand on top of the other, repeat that same process and stand on the blue button. Have the bottom player make a single box in the far-right corner and use it as a step up. Now have the bottom player stand directly underneath the Crown and make and hold two boxes above them. Then have the top player make two vertical boxes and throw them on top of the bottom player’s, allowing them to jump towards the Crown (make sure that the bottom player retracts the boxes after that.

Then have the bottom player make two boxes to the left above them (up, left), jump into the warp portal and hook to the ledge. Have that player make a single box and place it on the red button. Then the player to the right needs to make two boxes to the left without letting go, allowing the left player to jump onto it and make it across, only for the right player to retract the boxes once that’s done.

Next, have BOXBOY make two boxes in this order: up, left and jump through the warp portal to pull yourself up and place a block on the red button. Then have BOXGIRL make four boxes in this order: up, right, up, right, jump through the warp portal and fall to the right so that you hook onto the ledge. Press Y to bring yourself up, grabbing the Crown on the way as shown below. Then have BOXGIRL make four boxes to the left and hold onto them so BOXBOY can cross to the other side, then retract boxes
For the second Crown and the end, have BOXGIRL make four boxes in this order: up x2, right x2 and jump through the warp portal to fall down to collect the Crown as shown below. Once that’s down, press Y do pull BOXGIRL up, make four boxes in this order: up x2, left x2 and hold them there.

With that done, have BOXGIRL make two boxes upwards so BOXBOY goes through the portal and pull yourself up to grab the Crown.

Now have BOXGIRL go through the square portal like the previous time and head down to BOXBOY. Now have BOXBOY stand on top of BOXBOY and have BOXGIRL make four boxes upwards (but don’t let go of them) so that BOXBOY can get to the blue silhouette. Retract the boxes and have BOXBOY join her.
Have BOXBOY make two boxes horizontally in the bottom-left corner. Then have BOXBOY stand on top of BOXGIRL and jump into the circle warp tile. Situate BOXBOY in the bottom-left corner of the right side and have BOXGIRL stand on the right box and make four boxes in this order: left, down, left, down. This will warp her over to the other side with the bottom box landing on top of BOXBOY. Then you’ll need to have BOXBOY jump up-right so that BOXGIRL lands up on the ledge. Then have her drop the boxes and have BOXBOY make a single box down to complete the stairs going up to the door.

Have one player make a three-boxed backwards L next to the blue silhouette platform blocks. Then with that player on top of the other, make for the top box and have the bottom player make three boxes upwards (only to retract them afterwards), allowing the top player to go through the square warp portal. That player will then fall onto the blue button, activating the blue platforms. Then have the player that’s left behind stand on them and make a three-boxed forward facing L to use as steps to get up to the portal.
Have BOXGIRL place a box onto the blue button. Then have BOXBOY make three boxes to the right and one up (don’t let them go) so that BOXGIRL can go through the circle warp portal. She will then drop onto the red button so that BOXBOY can retract the boxes and grab the Crown.
Have BOXBOY make a three-boxed backwards L and proceed through the circle portal.
For the next section, have one player make a few boxes to the right without letting go so the other player can make their way over. Then retract the boxes and have the other player do the same thing so that both players are on the other side. Have one player on top of the other; the top player needs to make four boxes on top of themselves to the left and the bottom player makes four boxes upwards (only to retract them once the top player has gone through the portal). When that happens, the top player will be hooked onto the ledge that has the Crown, so pull them in.
Drop down and land on the blue button so that the player on the left can make a three-boxed left hook up to the blue blocks and then make a three-boxed backwards L to use as stairs up to the portal.
