To unlock the boxes you have to interact with objects, handles, buttons, and wheels on each side. You can find puzzle pieces on a side of the boxes as well.

It feels like you're handling a real box in a dark room.

Once you open all 8 boxes of a level pack, you'll be able to compose a puzzle and find out a brief history of the discovered invention.

Think outside of the box to solve all riddles, it's not always an easy job!

Pretty good except hints are missing

I really like this type of game and bought the premium pack after the first level. However, some of the hints are missing and there doesn’t seem to be any way to make them show up. I click on hint and nothing happens. I go to a different level and it works. Then another level and it won’t work. Very frustrating.

Lots of potential

I like this game so far. The puzzles are challenging and you really do have to think outside the box. However, I agree with other reviews that the “hint” does not help you understand how to solve the puzzle, it just shows you the answer. It would be nice to have some text to explain the reasoning behind the answer so you understand what you should have done. Or any system of better hints than just a walkthrough that shows how to pass the level.
Too many ads, although I know you can pay to remove them. Why can’t the ads be limited to asking for a hint? Would make the game less frustrating.
Otherwise beautifully designed game, well done devs

Not impressed

Tried to get a hint. Watched 2 ads and was given the hint of “after you solve the puzzles, push the big button.” Yeah, real helpful there - THAT PART WAS OBVIOUS. Next ad gave a hint, but it flashed on the screen and disappeared before it could be read. Hints must stay long enough to read. Next ad-watching revealed the same hint as the first time of pushing the big button.

Seriously, all this developer did was rig the game such that you’re watching ad-revenue more than actually playing it. And don’t ask for a hint or you’ll be in an ad loop that you can’t escape from.

This needs to be fixed. I’m deleting this one. There are too many good puzzle games out there that don’t do this.

Thanks for your feedback, I appreciate it, I’ll fix the hint timing soon. Btw, when you ask for a hint you must usually be on a different side than the one of the button to open the box
