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 8 (Dig Deep in the Sand).

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 team@switchaboo.com and we’ll be sure to provide credit if we use it.

World 8-1

Boxes Used: 18

Rotate clockwise, teeter on the edge, make two boxes to the right into the cement and pull yourself through. Make one box upwards and retract it to give yourself more room. Rotate upright and make a three-boxed right hook above yourself and pull yourself up. Make one box to the right and retract it so that you’re free to progress right. Rotate clockwise, take out the entire bottom row with boxes and use just two to the right to pull yourself across.

Make a three-boxed right hook above yourself and pull yourself up. Wiggle to the right so that you’re head is half poking out, make four boxes in this order: right, up x2, right and pull yourself through, collecting the Crown along the way.

Make a box up, right and down to clear up the cement and retract them back. Rotate upright, stand on the ledge and make a four-boxed right hook to pull yourself up to the door.

World 8-2

Boxes Used: 18

Walk to the far right and make a five-boxed right hook to pull yourself up. Make two boxes to the right, retract them and wiggle to the right. Now make a three-boxed right hook and pull yourself up.

Standing on the edge, make fives boxes in this order: right x3, up, left to dispose of some of the cement and retract all but one box. Position that box into the middle of the zappers below and jump on it to grab the Crown.

Turn clockwise to jump over to the cement on the right and then straighten up again. clear some space so that you’re one box up and left from the set of two zappers below you and make a four-boxed left hook to pull yourself up next to the second Crown. Rotate anti-clockwise and make a single horizontal box to throw into the zappers and use it as a stepping stone to grab the Crown.

Now straighten up, jump back over, clear some space on the right side by making three boxes in this order: right x3, down (only to retract them after) and use a single vertical box to avoid falling when going over to the right side. Rotate clockwise and make three boxes in this order: right x2, up. Drop them down into the zappers and use them as stairs to get up to the door – to do this, go over to each step and rotate clockwise to heave your way up.

World 8-3

Boxes Used: 19

Make a three-boxed left hook and jump to pull yourself up (make sure to do this as far to the right as you can). Turn anti-clockwise and make a four-boxed left hook with horizontal boxes to get up to the second platform.

For the Crown, make yourself upright, head over to the far left and facing right, make a three-boxed right hook to get up to the space where the Crown is.

Now jump back down and make another three-boxed right hook above yourself just slightly to the right of the zappers above. Stand underneath and one box to the left of the next set of zappers above you and make one box left and down to make a hole in front of you (retract those boxes once that’s done). Now you can make a three-boxed left hook above yourself and have space underneath you to hook onto the platform above.

Repeat that process for the next platform and make for the door.

World 8-4

Boxes Used: 11

Stand next to the cement and make five vertical boxes in this order: up, right, up, right, down and retract them once that’s done. Rotate clock wise and make one box up and another right to jump and hook onto the gap that you recently made. Now rotate clockwise and make boxes to remove the cement above and left the blue silhouette (not to the right yet) and retract the boxes. Stand horizontally one box left of the blue silhouette, make four boxes in this order: up, right, up, right and retract them. This will make some stairs upwards. Rotate upright, stand on the first step up and make a single vertical box onto the blue silhouette to continue.

For the first Crown, stand vertically next to the cement and make five boxes in this order: up, right x4. Then retract one and make one up, retract twice and make one up and continue to follow that pattern until the top-left section has been cleared. Rotate clockwise and make one box up and another right, only to retract them once the cement has been cleared here. Rotate upright, jump up, collect the Crown and make one box up and another right in order to hook onto the top-right part of cement. Now make a single box to the left and drop it so that it covers the red silhouette, allowing you to proceed.

This last section requires very intricate box placements, so here we go! Stand on the second-to-right block and make one box right and another down. Now retract these boxes. Take a step back, rotate clockwise and make one box right and another down, so that you’ve now taken out three blocks in the top-right corner.

Then rotate upright, stand on the middle cement step and make one box right and another down, so the Crown is free… but we don’t want to collect it just yet. We want to take another step back, rotate clockwise again and make some more steps in the same process as we had done just before. Now drop down and grab the Crown.

Now that we have the Crown, make your way to the top step (second block from the left), rotate clockwise (so you’re head is hanging over the edge by one block) and make five boxes in this order: right, down x2, left, down. This will push cover the blue silhouette and allow you to make for the door.

World 8-5

Thank you so much Phan D for helping us out with making this level even better!

Boxes Used: 21

Rotate clockwise and jump and hop over to the right platform. Face the left and make five boxes in this order: left, up x2, left, up. Then jump to hook onto the opening you’ve created, covering the blue silhouette. Drop down now and proceed onwards.

Stand just to the left of the cement pillar in this middle, make a four-boxed right hook above yourself and pull yourself up. Rotate anti-clockwise, make two boxes to the left and jump to the right to collect the Crown. Now hop to the left a little in order to cover the red silhouette and drop down to continue.

Now rotate anticlockwise twice and make two boxes to the left, letting go of Y but holding onto them. This will cover the red silhouette, so you’ll need to jump to the right and the boxes will hook onto the pillar. Simply drop down, keeping the boxes still there covering the red silhouette and allowing you to proceed onwards.

For the second Crown and the door, stand next to the cement, rotate clockwise and make four boxes in this order: up, right, up x2, clearing up some cement and retracting the boxes once you’re done. Rotate upright, jump onto the ledge and make four boxes in this order: right, up, right x2, clearing away some more cement and retract these boxes as well. Now make five boxes in this order: right, up x3, right and jump to the right in order to hook onto the top-right cement. Pull yourself up, collecting the Crown along the way.

Now stand next to the blue roller door and make five boxes in this order: left x2, down x3. Drop them so that it hooks onto the cement and covers the blue silhouette, allowing you to make for the door.

World 8-6

Boxes Used: 24

Rotate clockwise, stand next to the cement and make four boxes in this order: up, right, up x2 to clear the cement and then retract them. Jump into the opening and remaining horizontal and securely on the cement, make five boxes in this order: up, right x3, up and retract them again. Now make one box, let go of the Y button and jump over to the right, hooking onto the ledge and pulling yourself through. Rotate upright and standing on the left side, make one box right and another down, only to retract them afterwards. Before you head down, move a little bit to the right but not so much that you fall and make three boxes in this order: left, up, left. This will half cover the blue silhouette, but that’s really all we need.

In the next section, Rotate horizontally and clear one row right and up. Stand level with the left section and make three boxes right and two down to clear up some space and then retract them. Make one box up and right and fall to the right, allowing you to grab the Crown and hooking onto the right opening to pull ourselves across as shown below. Stand on the right block of the cement and make a three-boxed left hook to pull yourself up. Rotate anti-clockwise and make four boxes in this order: left, up x2, left. Drop them so that this will hook into the top-left cement and cover the red silhouette.

Standing upright, stand next to the cement, make one box right and retract it. Stand in that opening and make a five-boxed right hook to pull yourself up to the very top. Rotate clockwise, make four boxes in this order: right, up, right x2 and pull yourself across, allowing you to collect the Crown along the way.

Make three boxes in this order: left, down, right and retract them to fall down a step. Then make five boxes in this order: left, down, right, down x2 and retract again. Now make one box right and another up and retract those, clearing the path a little. Now rotate upright and stand on the right column of the cement. Make three boxes in this order: left, down x2 and retract them. Rotate anti-clockwise, make two boxes to the left and drop them so that it falls onto the cement and covers the blue silhouette.
