The Boxtrolls: Slide ‘N’ Sneak is a neatly boxed up addition to the Boxtroll franchise, that can be unpack for hours of fun.

The Boxtrolls: Slide ‘N’ Sneak employs a great use of lighting and shadows with foreground and several layers of background objects successfully creating the illusion of depth in the app. The streetlights light up the characters being played, and shadowy areas turn the characters into a mere silhouette. On top of this, every aspect of the stylized graphics is well done, crisp, and serves the overall sneaky atmosphere of the app.

The game play in The Boxtrolls: Slide ‘N’ Sneak is nothing novel, but it does have a fun slide feature for traveling downhill at high speeds. Collecting coins and avoiding obstacles and enemies is fun, and at times quite engaging. The only real issue with the game play is that the load times can feel a bit long. Sometimes the players is led to wonder if the game froze, as if a boxtroll threw a wrench in the loading gears. Other than this the game is largely immersive and enjoyable to play. An enchanting soundtrack and apt sound effects lend themselves to the immersive experience, as well. For the most part it takes a long time for the game to grow boring and many hours can be put into completely levels and completing them with good scores.

Overall, The Boxtrolls: Slide ‘N’ Sneak is worth downloading, and is fun to play, especially for children. The app is a good addition to the franchise and an interactive way to meet the characters of the new movie The Boxtrolls.
