Sept 15th, 2005 - Shoecake Games (www.shoecakegames.com) announced their new geometric puzzle game, Boxikon, is now available. Not since Tetris have geometric shapes forming lines been as fun as Boxikon. It is simple to learn and simple to play, and every new game will bring a new puzzle. Boxikon is available for Windows, Mac, and Pocket PC.
Imagine Tetris where blocks are placed wherever you'd like. Now imagine that lines are gained not only side to side, but top to bottom as well. Then throw in a ton more shapes and three very important catches: The inventory only holds 5 shapes at a time, new one is added on a continuously faster timer, and if there isn't room for the new shape a random spot on your map will become a permanent tile. Last but not least, add in some explosives, just for good measure. It is a race against time and your problem solving skills are your best weapon.
Boxikon is simple, easy, and fun; just the way puzzle games used to be. The Shoecake Games website, www.shoecakegames.com, has a free demo available to fuel your puzzle addiction.
