Description: You find yourself enclosed in a ‘Burtonesque’ room with no exits. Colourful cubes move towards you either from the far wall, the ceiling or from beneath your feet. In order to avoid being squashed by the cubes you must clear them by creating matches. Depending on your chosen options, you must either create a run of three or a block of four. When a match is made, the cubes will explode and destroy any others of the same colour touching them. They keep coming, faster and faster. How long will you survive?

Review: While ‘Boxed In’ is as basic as games get I do feel it has a certain charm to itself. It is essentially a match-3 game only it lets you play in a number of ways. You can have the cubes falling out of the sky, coming at you like a giant wall or coming upwards from the ground. The music is boring, the graphics appalling, but yet this game does have a large does of playability. I still don’t think it is £3.99’s worth of playability, but it is at least worth half that price. I have to say it really is better than I thought and more exciting t play than any video could ever capture.
