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 6 (The Zapper Zone).
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: 9
Rotate clockwise and make a three-boxed backwards L (right x2, up) so that the two right boxes covers the zappers. Now you can use them as stairs and get to the other side.
Rotating back upright, make a single vertical box and throw it onto the middle platform so that you can jump across.
For the Crown, rotate clockwise again and make another three-boxed backwards L to throw to the right. This will allow you to collect the Crown and cross to the other side.
For the last pit, make sure you’re rotated clockwise and stack two boxes on top of each other. Throw then into the pit so that the right side lands on the ledge below, allowing you to reach the door without getting zapped.
A Massive thank you goes out to Tish H for their help with this one! we were well and truly stumped…
Boxes Used: 18
Rotate clockwise, stand to the right and make five boxes in this order to snake your way through: right, down x2, right x2.
Next, you’ll want to remain rotated clockwise, position your head right next to the floating zapper and make four boxes in this order to snake through again: up, right x2, down.
Rotate upright, stand as far right as you can and make five boxes in this order to snake through: right x3, up, right.
For the Crown and the door, rotate clockwise, make four boxes in this order: right x2, down x2 and place them down so that the top-left box is only just hanging on the ledge. Standing next to that box, rotate anti-clockwise and jump onto it. Whilst on there, rotate clockwise twice so that you are now jammed in the middle of the boxes and the ceiling. Squeeze your way as far right as you can go, collecting the Crown and falling down to the door.
Boxes Used: 22
For the first set of zappers, stand upright against the right wall and make five boxes in this order: up x2, right x2, down. This will allow you to pull yourself up and over the zappers.
Next challenge, rotate clockwise and make four boxes in this order: up x2, right x2. This will allow you to jump and hop to the upper ledge that has no zappers and pull yourself through.
For the last section and the Crown, rotate clockwise and make a single box to the right. Then walk off to the right and the box will hook onto the ledge, allowing you to pull yourself into the bottom-right ledge. Now stand upright, face left standing on the edge and make four boxes to wrap up and around to the right to get up to the next ledge. Here, rotate anti-clockwise and make four boxes (left, up x2, left) to squeeze into the ledge with the Crown as shown below. Lastly, make another four boxes (right, up x2, right) to get to the top ledge and make for the door.
Boxes Used: 15
Standing upright just underneath the gap in the zappers, make a five-boxed even right hook above yourself and pull yourself up.
For the Crown, rotate horizontally (with your left side directly underneath the Crown) and make a five-boxed right hook to pull yourself up.
For the Crown and the Door, remain rotated clockwise, stand on the edge and make five boxes in this order: up x2, right x3. This will allow you to hook onto the ledge to the far right, grabbing the Crown along the way.
Boxes Used: 19
For the first ledge, rotate clockwise and make three boxes up and two right in order to jump and hook onto the ledge above the six zappers.
For the first Crown, stand to the right facing left and make four boxes in this order: left, down x3 as shown below. This will allow you to grab the Crown and be able to retract the boxes once you’re done. Then make a three-boxed left hook to pull up to the crevice on the left side, rotate clockwise, make two boxes to the right and jump right so that the box hooks onto the far right ledge, allowing you to hop across to safety.
For the last challenge and the second Crown, stand upright just next to the zappers to the right and make six boxes in this order: up x2, right x3, down. This will allow you to pull yourself around. Now rotate anti-clockwise and make a three-boxed forward facing L in the zappers, allowing you to jump up, grab the Crown (by becoming upright) and jump and hop to the door.
