BOXBOY! + BOXGIRL! may start off pretty simple, but it gets tricky pretty quickly. So let’s get started on the A Tall Tale segment: World 4 (It’s Raining Lasers)
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: 6
Standing vertically, make a single box above yourself and run through the lasers. Once through, throw it down into the ditch so that you can jump across.
For the Crown, simply make three vertical boxes to the right of you and drop them into the pit, covering the laser cannons. Then you can drop down and collect the Crown.
For the last section, rotate to the right, stand next to the laser and make two boxes above you. Wiggle your way through to the other side and when you get to the other side, stand as far to the right as possible without falling and throw the boxes to the right, covering the lasers and allowing you to get to the door.
Boxes Used: 14
Rotate clockwise, stand just next to the laser cannon and make three boxes in this order: right x2, down. This will cover both cannons and allow you to proceed.
Rotating horizontal clockwise again, make a four-boxed forward facing S (right x2, up, right) and throw it to the far right, covering both cannons.
For the Crown, make three boxes in this order: right x2, down and throw them down to cover the cannons. Then head down there, just to the left of the Crown, and rotate anti-clockwise so that you squeeze yourself under the boxes, grabbing the Crown as shown below.
For the second Crown and the door, make sure you’re rotated to the right and lean over the edge. Make four boxes in this order: right x2, up, right and drop them down so that the rightmost box lands on the laser cannon that’s firing upwards. Jump down to grab the Crown and proceed to the door.
Boxes Used: 3
Stand on the blue button to open the door (you only need to do this once and the roller door will remain open). Make a single box to the right and hold onto it as you jump down, being protected by the laser. Then dispose of that box and make one box above you to walk through to the bottom-right corner; dispose of that box as well.
Standing directly underneath the Crown facing left, make one box left and two down so that you push yourself up into the Crown, then retract them.
Now stand directly underneath the button and make three boxes above yourself, pushing the button in. Then detract those boxes.
Finally, make a single box above yourself to run back through and to the door.
Boxes Used: 15
Rotate clockwise and make a single box above yourself, allowing you to walk through the laser. For the second section, stand on the edge and make three boxes in this order: right, down, right. Drop them onto the red button and jump onto the top box. Then make a single box to the right but hold it there until you’ve fallen below the laser because you can then retract it.
For the Crown, stand on the edge horizontally and make four boxes in this order: right, down, right x2. This will press in the button, allow you to grab the Crown and jump to the next section.
For the final section and the second Crown, make two horizontal boxes to the right and place them onto the right ledge, allowing you to jump onto them and grab the Crown as shown below.
Jump back to the left ledge and make four horizontal boxes in this order: right x2, up x2. This will push in the red button, bringing the roller door and down stopping the right cannon. Now to get down, jump back onto the left ledge and make one box to the left. Then jump to the left, hopping until you get to the door.
Boxes Used: 12
Stand and teeter on the far edge of the first laser cannon and make three vertical boxes downwards. Throw them onto the cannon below so that it stops both cannons lasers and then jump on and over them to the right.
From here, rotate anti-clockwise, make two horizontal boxes to the left and throw them onto the right cannon so that you can use it as a bridge and jump over to the left platform. Rotate so that you’re upright and make a single box to the left and drop down through the left opening.
Now rotate horizontally and make three horizontal boxes in this order: right x2, down. Place these boxes so that the left book is hooked onto the cannon below, stopping the top and right cannon. Make your way over to the right ledge and make three horizontal boxes in this order: left, up, right. hold onto these boxes whilst you collect the Crown and make for the door.
