The story in Boxley is very simple, which is to be expected given that it's a tetris game. Basically you are told the story of an ancient hero (of TETRIS), then you are partnered up with another boxley, Earl. Together you and Earl enter a tournament and battle against other boxley's in epic bouts of dropping blocks. However, as you soon discover, you seem to be the only team of two boxley's... (with the exception of the first opponents.) Earl is puzzled but none the less you continue on in the tournament, facing darker and darker opponents until you meet up with the evil boxley from the ancient story, Dusk. After fighting Dusk he reveals that the player is the hero from that story. You are then given the opportunity to enter your name, and you get your place on the leaderboard.
The second course: Gameplay
Well, it's Tetris. Aside from the normal Tetris fare of dropping blocks of four into a line, you have an opponent, and you must deplete their HP by... Dropping blocks of four into a line! It gets mixed up a bit by your opponent being able to add another row of blocks beneath your current stack, which always mimics your bottom row. (At least in easy mode, which is all I've played so far.)
The third course: Music & Sound
Not much in this catagory. the menu has standard menu type sounds, and I only heard one music track. The track fits and it doesn't ever get annoying though, so thats perfectly fine. Plus it's custom, as far as I can tell.
Well, what can I say. Boxley accomplishes everything it sets out to do, and gives you yet another reason to play Tetris again. After all, accomplishing the plan is the most important thing in my books, so a perfect five out of five stars for this dish.
