This visually stunning journey includes hundreds of the most beautiful puzzles ever created. It's up to you to solve them, capture the Tricksters, and save the world from chaos.
Nominated for Best Puzzle game at the 1999 Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3)
"While puzzle games are can be highly addictive and offer a
good quick distraction, they never seem to offer any real sense of
accomplishment, so it is really nice that Pandora's Box allows players to work
toward solving a greater challenge. There is a sense that you are working
toward some goal rather than just taking part in a brief distraction, and the
scenic settings and stunning artwork really help provide the game with a true
sense of class."
"From the preview copy, Pandora's Box seems to be a highly
addictive game that will appeal to any gamer who enjoys solving puzzles. The
overall storyline that gives information on mythology and the places you
travel, adds to the worldly feel that should educate and delight anyone who
enjoys a challenging game. With such a recognizable figure at the helm of
Pandora's Box, Alexey Pajitnov looks poised to reinvent himself and the genre
he made so popular with Tetris."
