Boxhead Walkthrough

Boxhead is the entertaining, yet simple, zombie game that kicked off the Boxhead series. The basic premise is pretty easy to understand. You need to save as many survivors as you can by following the arrows to the evacuation point. Oh yes, you also have to survive yourself. You're little good to those survivors if the zombies make a snack out of you. It's pretty easy to see who is friend and who is foe. The survivors are shown in blue. Zombies are shown in white. In each level you have a certain number of survivors you need to save and a time limit on how long you have to save those survivors. That's really what makes the game so challenging. It's also what makes the game so much fun. Without the time limit, the game would be far too easy. The truth is, more experienced zombie game players are probably going to find this one a bit too simple, but they'll still enjoy it. Instead of going overboard with a lot of bells and whistles, this one gives you the basic game and more experienced players will appreciate that. Newcomers to the genre are going to love this one. It offers all the fun of the more difficult games with less of a challenge; giving the beginner more of a chance to get used to how the game is played before things start getting more difficult.

Boxhead starts you out easy. You have a group of survivors following you and you need to get them to the evacuation point without getting them killed. You don't encounter many zombies along the way so there's not really much chance you won't be able to make it through the first level. There are no obvious arrows marking your path so for newcomers to online zombie games the real challenge will be just finding your way to the evacuation point. At the bottom left side of the screen, you'll find a compass. This compass will make finding your way through the level a lot easier. The arrow points in the direction of the evacuation point from whatever position you're in. For example, if you're above the evacuation point, the arrow will point down. If you're to the left of the point, the arrow will be pointing right. It's pretty simple to understand and to use. Using that compass is also the best way to avoid getting hopelessly lost. While wondering around aimlessly will probably eventually lead you to the exit, the compass will get you there much more quickly.

One of the greatest things about Boxhead is that all of the information you need in this game is displayed clearly at the bottom of the screen. To the right of your compass, you'll see the time you have left to complete your objective. To the right of that, you'll see 'zombies killed', 'civilians killed', 'civilians saved', 'score' and your active weapon. To do as well as you can do in Boxhead you need to keep an eye on all of that information - especially the time and the number of civilians saved. The number you've saved it shown first with the number you need to save shown second. Taking that information into account along with how much time you have left, you'll be able to get a pretty good idea of how you're doing in the level. If you have saved most of the required survivors, have one with you and have lots of time left, you can take a few moments to take out a few zombies which is always fun. Alternatively, if you don't have much time left and you still need to find survivors, you're really going to have to scramble.

As you progress in Boxhead, things definitely get more difficult. The great thing is that, unlike most zombie games, it never becomes so difficult you want to give up. You don't have to have extraordinary shooting skills to do well in this game. You simply have to pay attention to where the zombies are, pay attention to where the survivors are and use the compass to get to the exit quickly. As you play, though, you'll be up against more and more zombies making achieving your goal a little bit more difficult. That steadily increasing level of challenge helps the game stay entertaining. If it were to stay easy the whole way through, it wouldn't take long to get bored. Once you start facing off against more zombies, you'll also begin to get new weapons you can use. The pistol you start the game with offers unlimited ammo but the new weapons you find won't. You'll need to pick up new ammo for those weapons as you look for survivors and take out zombies. Ammo is found in boxes and to collect that ammo, all you need to do is move your character over the box. The ammo will automatically be added to your weapon's supply. How much ammo you have is displayed in the same section of the game screen that shows you your active weapon. Keep an eye on that. If you have limited ammo and don't see anymore, it's a good idea to switch weapons. You don't want to run out of ammo right before you have to take out a big group of zombies.

Overall, Boxhead is a great zombie game that will keep you entertained whether you're a newcomer to zombie games or a more experienced player. It is far from the most difficult zombie game online, but that doesn't take away from the entertainment value of the game at all. You'll have a blast blowing zombies away and corralling survivors in this simple, yet addictive, zombie game. The best way to do well is to watch the basic stats at the bottom of the screen and to stay ready for the large group of zombies that could be waiting just around the corner. More experienced zombie game players are probably going to be able to do really well in this game without really trying all that hard while newcomers might struggle a bit. Regardless of which category you fall into, if you consider yourself a fan of zombie games, this is one you need to check out.
