I am Box, a Windows Phone game that will drive you crazy

I am Box

I am Box is one of the simplest Windows Phone games out there. But you shouldn't mistake simple with easy because I am Box can kick you to the curb.

I am Box is a fast paced game of survival calling you to catch incoming colored arrows with the side of a box that has the matching color. The longer you survive, the better.

I am Box

The colored arrows enter the screen slowly but as they move closer to the cube, they speed up. You spin the cube clockwise and counter-clockwise by tapping the left or right corner of the screen.  As you can guess, when the first arrow strikes a non-coordinating color the game ends. Your score is your the time you survive before matching the wrong colored arrow.

Graphics are simple, game play is very challenging (either that or I have the coordination of a Bull Moose) and the music intense with I am Box.  The developer recommends wearing headphones to get the full effect of the music.

I can see I am Box being a fun "pass and play" styled game when you're hanging out with friends to see who can last the longest or when you have a few seconds to waste. There is a free trial version available for I am Box with the full version running $.99.

You can find I am Box here at the Windows Phone Store. It is available for both Windows Phone 7.x and 8 devices.

Thank you for that highly descriptive paragraph about why the game isn't for you, it will defiantly change my perspective on the game as a whole and my life. WHOA! LIFE CHANGING MOMENT IN ALL CAPS!

You are right "not much to it". The purpose of a game should be to entertain the player, not to try to defeat him within 10 seconds of game play.

It's a video, George! Why use half of the time desperately trying to explain the game? Just show us!

well, it seems like it at first, but I managed to get to 4 minutes (it ends there) after a week of heavy playing :D

You can so tell that it was developed with a square screen, mainly because the visibility from top/bottom leaves very little reaction time - shame I can't time 33secs correctly :-/

Looks interesting, but why the clumsy controls?
with touch screen you could turn your box by sliding your finger along the screen?
perhaps version 2? I'd buy that.
