There is a large emphasis on planning, organization and selection and less on arcade style quick reactions. There are 15 levels and more than 60 shapes of increasing complexity with which the player is free to position anywhere in game grid.
This offers more freedom for creative logic and strategic foresight than the usual falling shapes style puzzle games.
BoXiKoN is optimized for Windows XP but should work on any system with DirectX 7.0 or better. The game is also available for Pocket PC.
