Box 'n Choppa

Your rating: None Average: 2.9 (19 votes)

Box 'n Choppa is a cel-shaded 3d sidescroller about an ork(intentional misspell) named "Choppa", and a gnome referred to as Box. Choppa has been captured, and is being held by evil wizards. Box has snuck into the prison to free his friend, and he was clever enough to shrink Choppa's armor down to make it light enough for transport. Unfortunately, he left his spell book in the lab, and he can't change it back to normal size. Choppa is mildly irritated by this, and being a large, powerful, and impatient ork; he decides to pick up the heavily armored gnome and wield him as a weapon. Several enemies exist in the prison, acting as bodyguards for the wizards. You will encounter them throughout your escape.
These antagonists are really just trying to prevent you from obtaining the key that allows you to unlock the door to the prison. Once you have acquired the key, the game is over and Choppa can take out his frustration on Box (Since he no longer needs him as a weapon).

Your objective: Escape. (get the key)
Your weapon: Box the Gnome
Your obstacles: Jelly, Enchanted Armaments, Laser Eyeball

Brief Play Description: 

The game starts, and you jump right into the action. You can use Box three ways:
punch: Choppa holds Box and shoves him into the enemy;
kick: Box wraps around Choppa's leg and he beats the enemy with him;
helicopter: Choppa spins Box around his head, allowing you to super jump while hitting airborne enemies and reducing fall speed.
The levels are easy to follow, so just go to the end and grab the key.
Watch out for enemies! Oh yea, the spikes too....
