Nintendo Download: Think Outside the BOXBOY!

A down week for the Nintendo Download sees Boxboy! + Boxgirl! take the top billing, though there are a few other titles worth checking out.

What is a Boxboy?

I don’t think I’m the target market for Boxboy! + Boxgirl!. A minimalist puzzler, the new arrival to the eShop has a distinct look to it, though it’s a very plain one. Even so, if you’re into puzzle games, this might be one to check out.

This week also brings SteamWorld Quest: The Hand of Gilgamech. If you liked the past SteamWorld games, you of course will want to check this one out too, though be warned that the title actually refers to the gameplay. The Hand of Gilgamech is a card game.

Scroll down for the rest.
