boxod is actually a collection of four puzzle games, each constructed of
'boxes' stacked into cubes or pyramids. The game cubes or pyramids can
contain from 2 to 8 Levels (rows and columns of boxes). The 6 sides (faces) of
individual boxes can each show different colors and images. The games involve
manipulating boxes and levels to match colors and images on each side of the overall
cube or pyramid.

Rotate boxes and levels so that all cube surfaces match.
Rotate boxes and levels so that all pyramid surfaces match.
Similar to the famous Rubik's Cube puzzle.
These games are intended to be easy for fairly young kids to learn, and yet provide enough challenge to interest people of all ages. A Control Panel contains simple and intuitive controls to manipulate game elements. Boxes can be ' Opened' by right-clicking the mouse to possibly reveal a helpful hint.
Options can be set to configure the
appearance and operation of boxod games. Customized sets of Colors and
Images can be selected to display on the 6 sides of boxes. Two predefined
Image Sets are included with the download, but you can also create sets with
your own pictures. Images can span the entire faces of cubes and pyramids, or
can be scaled to display small pictures within each box. A color or image
pattern can be chosen for the background of the game playing area.
Aspire to be included in the High Scores Hall of Fame for each game type. Scores can be greatly increased by playing the games with higher Levels, and by playing efficiently to use as few moves as possible. Or you can always press the Cheat button to solve a game instantly (with a zero Score). Anyway, it's all just for fun!
