2.0 out of 5 stars Not Sure if Box or User Needs Waking Up More February 18, 2013
Verified Purchase
One-word description: Amateurish

I love physics-based games, but this one bored me with its simplistic physics, uninspiring music and sounds, and lousy graphics. The instructions are minimal, and there is no undo, only reset. It's difficult to see, even on a 10" tablet, where the piece of wood is going because it's under your finger. Many pieces are too small to figure out what they are, and quite generic. The selection of wood pieces don't necessarily tell you how large or long the piece of wood is, and you don't get a choice of what to choose - the game forces you to pick the piece it wants you to use. Seriously, I can't imagine playing this on a phone!

Story-wise, there isn't much other than you are supposed to wake this box up. Why? No telling. But you do this by essentially dropping or booting him to his demise. And it's very short, too.

At least there is no big permission issue (it wants internet access, which I don't like) but it doesn't have any other bad permissions and no IAP, so it gets a bonus star for those attributes.

I'm usually only down on apps that have security and/or privacy issues. This one, however, just is not worth it, not even for free.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, not great February 18, 2013
Verified Purchase
First of all, the graphics aren't great, what they are is Super Nintendo graphics, which, given this type of game, I can live with. Nothing looks particularly good, but nothing stands out as being bad, so I can live with that.

Regarding gameplay, it is fun, but you have to get used to it. As others have stated, the instructions are minimal, and there are times I'm slightly confused about how one block or another will affect me trying to destruct the environment around the box, but I quickly catch on and I'd rather it be this way than simple and not requiring thinking/adaptation.

The music is decent. It isn't annoying, but it is the same thing over and over, so if music plays a big part of your choice, then you won't love it. For me personally I usually play games on mute (or very low) anyway, so it doesn't affect me. While repetitive, it is soft and peaceful however.

I give it 4 stars because it's a game I could see sharing with my friends/coworkers, and saying "Try this level" and I think there are some neat levels that would make them think. I have had no troubles with the game (Kindle Fire HD), and it plays smoothly, the blocks do what they should in regard to physics, and it is responsive. It is worth a try as the free app of the day.

1.0 out of 5 stars Fun idea. Poorly executed. February 18, 2013
Verified Purchase
This game seems like it would be fun, but I can't see where I'm putting the pieces, because they're under my finger. Maybe it would be better on a tablet, but on my phone it's unplayable.

2.0 out of 5 stars Humpty Dumpty and Sponge Bob had a child? February 18, 2013
Verified Purchase
Sigh. This App is overly simple. The game asks players to strategically place pieces of wood on a structure in an effort to rouse the sleeping "Mr. Box." The player determines where to place wood pieces based on very simple "cause and effect" physics. If the player correctly places wood, the resulting chain reaction will cause Mr. Box to tumble and wake up. There is a limited number of wood pieces for each level. Sizes and shapes of wood are different for each level.

If one makes a mistake placing a piece of wood, one cannot undo one's move. One has to begin the level all over again. This is frustrating.

Playing on a Kindle Fire HD, the pieces of wood are difficult to see. If I'm having a visual problem on a Kindle, I wonder what a phone would be like. When placing pieces of wood, wood should be above the finger, not below it. Finger ends up obstructing player's view. Also, moving the wood is awkward.

This game has a good concept, it's just poorly executed. The problem is that game is way too simple to engage a player for any length of time. The levels are easy and the graphics are basic. As far as the music, ity's not thrilling, but I've heard worse. The game has a miniscule 20 levels. Even if this App were a buck, that would still be too few levels.

I can't recommend this App for adults. Adults will likely find it boring very quickly. Game might help children understand basic concepts of physics.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not very many levels, poor graphics February 17, 2013
Verified Purchase
There isnt very many levels, only 20. I finished 16 levels in like 10 mins. And the graphics look like something done in paint.

The game itself is ok but nothing special. Save your money.

2.0 out of 5 stars You get an "A" for Effort or something... February 18, 2013
Verified Purchase
I see some potential in this game. However...

It starts easy, and stays that way. You need to make more challenges.

I feel like I finished half the levels in the time it took to download. More thought to strategy.

Second, more thought to placement. Have that block hover above your finger, not under it. We'll get it.

The physics feel good, except for the rope that doesn't bend? Seemed a little weird. Your game does have an element of fun.

Keep up the work, add more challenging levels. I'm not sure about your spongebob impersonator, you might bring him back to the drawing board.

Did I miss something or was level 20 the trampoline? Seemed that way. If you say 20 give us 20 please. Can't comment on the music since I played in bed, my wife beside me...

Ok for FAOTD.

This game was not fun. It was pretty pointless. It wasn't worth the price of free. They should have paid me for my wasted time.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a challenge.
Fun! and not at all boring if you like a real challenge. Some of the puzzles are a real concentrated effort to beat. Not for the person that gives up easy.

Very cool and unique. Different looking, which helps offset the basic but serviceable graphics. However, it's the gameplay where this really shines. Read more
