Boxed In Version 2
November 3, 2009 by Ryan Ray
Hey there everyone. It’s about 1:15 in the morning here in the Midwest of the U.S. If you didn’t know I’m a full time student so for one it’s not strange to be up this late trying in vain to do homework and catch up on work. I’m very sleep deprived and have been for the past week. I missed 3 days of classes after my Great Grandma passed away. I decided it was worth the time to go home and be with family instead of keep up with school. I can always make up quizes and tests but not revisit my Grandma’s funeral. I tell you all this just because I’m a person too behind this keyboard. I thought you would appreciate to know what I’ve been doing and why I haven’t posted something nutty about the iPhone since October 26th!
I really appreciate your patience even not knowing the situation. For my sleep’s sake though let’s get on the road and talk about an app we’ve reviewed ONCE here at iPhone Nuts. The developer being the nice guy he is let us know that he’s got version two of his app out so we’re going to put it through it’s paces again. After doing some digging here is what I’ve found that’s new. Please correct me Mr. Mengelt if I’ve missed anything. Of course there are new levels! 50 of them I believe. There are some original music and sound effects added now, now worries if you like your game silent. You can turn it off in the options. That’s there for you who listen to your iPod while playing games. Of course autosave is still there, as well as the ability to move the main interface to the top or bottom of the screen. Personal preference as to where you like it!
But you might ask, “What’s your favorite part of the new app?” Well personally I love the new directional pad that was added. The game without the D-pad works with multiple swipes to move the robot across each level. At time though all that swiping can get monotonous. It’s great to use a D pad and move your robot around now. You should check it out if you are a fan of it. I believe you can turn it on under options. So you want to see some more screen shots? Alright well check it out below.
Like I mentioned you can turn on or off features to your personal liking. Try the D-pad out once though. See what you think. The next picture is the instructions on how you play this game. The great little map key is still there too. Definitely helpful in identifying objects for the noobie like me.
Just to show you how the levels progress the above shot is level 1. Pretty simple, you should be able to figure this out before you even start moving boxes. Again remember you can only push and not pull these wooden boxes. Now look at level 2.
Things get a little more complex here. As you can see you have to push this box up onto a lever to turn off that green thing blocking us from the exit. Also pick up the gear there on the upper left part of the level. As you can guess the levels are going to get harder and harder from here. Don’t worry about getting stuck on one level. You can skip up to five at a time I believe. Just to let your brain do some new solving. You can also reset the level you are on if you get stuck on a certain level.
So, worth the upgrade? Yup, I’d say so. If you are already a fan of Boxed In then fork over .99 for 50 new levels and a D pad. A cheap but effective 99 pennies spent. The developer is working hard for you guys so show your support and try out Boxed In 2. Leave a comment and let me know your own opinion of Boxed In 2. I’ll be trying to conquer this game over the coming weeks. I’m notorious for not being good at games. Sorry, I wasn’t born much of a gamer. Anyway, have a great Tuesday. I’m going to get some rest. As always, thanks for reading!
