This game’s vis­ual de­sign may be monochro­matic and drawn with sim­ple lines, but this be­lies its rich puz­zle game­play. The se­quel to last year’s cult clas­sic, BOXBOXBOY! builds on the same core de­sign. Play­ers are able to sprout a box chain from their boxy body, and these can hook on to ledges, cre­ate pro­tec­tion from lasers, or build plat­forms across gaps. Later puz­zles can be mad­den­ing but the game de­sign is el­e­gant. If you judge head­phones on looks, these, avail­able in bright colours, are the pick of the bunch. They feel solid and are de­signed to work with Sony’s Hi-Res au­dio de­vices as well as smart­phones. The 40mm speak­ers de­liver im­pres­sive sound with ef­fec­tive noise-can­cel­la­tion. The hard case of­fers good pro­tec­tion and they boast a 20-hour bat­tery life. The de­tach­able cord does not have a re­mote con­trol so you need to reach for con­trols even when us­ing a ca­ble.
