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 11 (Electro Block Ride).
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 one box right and another up. Then throw them onto electro block and jump on them to get to the other side.
Next, still rotated, make two boxes right and another up. Drop the boxes onto the bottom electro block, drop down onto the left box and duck down until it moves over to the right side, collecting the Crown along the way.
For the second Crown, stand upright, make a single vertical box and drop it onto the left side of the electro platform. Jump on top of the box, ride it up and grab the Crown in the top-left corner as shown below. Then drop down onto the box, rotate clockwise and jump over to the top-right opening as the electro block starts to go down..
For the final section, make two boxes right and one up. Drop them in the middle of the electro block and jump on the highest block in order to make for the door.
Boxes Used: 10
Rotate clockwise, stand on the ledge and make three boxes in this order: right, down, right and drop them onto the single electro block. Ride it up and move onwards.
Still rotated clockwise, make three boxes in this order: right x2, up and drop them down on the single electro block. As the block is moving right, rotate anti-clockwise twice. This will make it easier to grab the Crown when the block is at its most bottom point.
For the second Crown, stand upright and make four boxes in this order: right x3, up. Drop that onto the block when it’s at the bottom-left point and jump onto the top-right box. When it transports you over to the top-right section, you’ll be able to jump and collect the Crown before jumping onto the ledge. Wait for the blue button to be pushed in and make for the door.
Boxes Used: 14
Make a four-boxed right hook to the right of yourself and jump to hook onto the electro block. Drop down when it pushed in the button and proceed onwards.
Rotate clockwise and when the path is clear, make one box to the right and jump across the gap to hook and pull yourself across. Rotate anti-clockwise twice and when the electro block is at its lowest point, make one box left and another down, elevating you up a little bit (but don’t let go of the Y button). Ride the block upwards until you collect the Crown as shown below. Once that’s done, retract the boxes and fall back down. Rotate upright, wait for the electro block to get to its lowest point again and make three boxes left and one up. Let go of this one and it will push in the red button.
For the second Crown and the door, rotate clockwise and make five boxes in this order: right x2, up x3 and place them on the electro block. Rotate upright and jump onto the left box to ride it up. Jump to collect the Crown and then jump down to proceed to the door once the blue button is pushed in.
Boxes Used: 27
Face left and make four boxes in this order: up x2, left x2. With this hook, jump up-left and hop over so that the blue button is pushed in. Now walk between the electro blocks and make five boxes in this order: up x3, right x2. Jump to hook to the right and hop once more so that when you pull yourself up, you’ll land safely.
For the Crown, rotate clockwise and make five boxes in this order: right x4, up. Jump and hop to the right in order to push in the red button and then drop down to collect the Crown as shown below. Then jump onto the step to the left, make two boxes to the right and try to throw them as far to the right as possible onto the electric block. Jump onto them and jump over to the other side.
In the last section, stand upright on the edge and make four boxes in this order: right, up x2, right. Jump right and hook onto the higher platform to bring yourself up. Rotate anti-clockwise, make a single box to the left and jump left to the ledge where the blue button is. Here, stand upright and make a box to the left of you, pressing in the button. Now drop down to the bottom-middle platform and press X to dismantle the box. The vertical electro blocks will move rightward. Stand on the edge and make three boxes up and two to the right. Jump rightward to grab the Crown and pull yourself up to the door.
Boxes Used: 15
Rotate clockwise and make one box right and two up. Wait until the long electro block below is at its leftmost point and drop the boxes. Jump down onto the boxes and duck down to go underneath the stalactite and proceed onwards.
For the second section, stand on the right ledge and rotate upright. Make four boxes in this order: right, down, right x2 and drop them on the electro block when it is at its leftmost point. Before it starts moving right, jump onto the top box and follow it through.
For the first Crown, rotate clockwise, wait for the top electro block to make its way to the far left and make three boxes in this order to place on top of it: right x2, up. Jump onto the top-right box and the boxes will move to the right and drop down onto the bottom electro block. Move onto the bottom-left box and wait for the electro block to move to the left in order to grab the Crown.
Get to the platform on the right and whilst standing upright, make two vertical boxes and throw them down onto the electro block. Jump on top and when they move over to the right, jump onto the ledge. Facing left and teetering over the edge, make one box up and two left (but don’t let go). When the electro block moves over to the right, you’ll hook onto it. As the block starts to move to the left, make two more boxes down to bring yourself up to grab the Crown.
Wait for the electro block to move back to the right and retract two boxes. to back onto the ledge. Now let go of Y so that you lock the boxes into place. When the time is right and the electro block is as far right as it can be, jump and throw the boxes to the left. When the electro block moves to the left, the boxes will push in the red button and you can make for the door.
