What's Inside The Box - Flash Game Ryview

What's inside the Box, by Bonte Games.

A written game ryview!?! What is this madness!?!

I'll tell you what madness it is. It's my madness.

And it's me trying to actually produce game ryview content again! I know you all like my movie ryviews (and if you don't, go to hell), but since the site is supposed to be "Ryan's Game Ryviews" I feel like I should get back to that a little bit.

Or not. We'll see where this goes. Anyway, enjoy...

What's inside the Box is a puzzle game where you're solving multiple layers of switch based puzzles to open a box, because you're damn curious what's inside.

What I really enjoy about this game is the scaling of the puzzles. Each one seems to be a logical step forward from the previous. Unlike lots of puzzle games that fall into the trap of "Let's have some super easy levels then get super hard right away!", this has a very good progression. There's no difficulty wall. It just slowly gets more difficult, culminating in some very interesting puzzle solving towards the end of the game.

Now, this wasn't particularly hard to finish. I enjoyed it, but it was a pretty short flash game. There is an iOS version that's longer, so perhaps that gets a little harder (stay tuned to see if play and ryview that one!), but in the flash version I didn't find it particularly challenging. So, perhaps there should have been a bit more of a wall. But as it stands, it was a fun little puzzle game that occupied a fun hour of my life (give or take).

If you're a puzzle fan, and especially if you get frustrated by some that ramp up way too fast, this is right up your alley. If you want to avoid thinking and just shoot some space aliens or cats or something, there are plenty of ways to do that too, but you'll want to take a pass on the his box.

Let me know what you think in the comments!

Until next time,
