Wake Up the Box 3 is a physics puzzle game in which the goal is to wake up Mr. Box, a person made out of a square block. Mr Box keeps falling asleep wherever he is places and it is your job to wake him up. Push him, pull him or tip him over. Whatever you need to do to jostle him awake. It is the sequel to Wake Up the Box 2.
The game has 16 levels for the player to solve and it revolves around placing the correct object in the correct spot. The solution may require some timing when placing the objects. You attach a set of non-rotatable wooden objects to other wooden objects and let physics do the work to knock or jostle Mr. Box awake. There is a bar of Zs which shows just now much Mr. Box has been jostled and you have to fill this bar to wake him up. The available pieces are pre-determined on each level and must be used in order. Your goal is to wake him up by pushing him, pulling him or tipping him over. In the early levels, you often rely on seesaw physics and often you just need to let gravity do the job for you. Later in the game, some of the contraptions become more elaborate and the solution might not be that obvious until you've played around with the level a bit. This third game in the series focuses less on purely mechanical solutions in favor or more gimmicky and story-based solutions. You may attach your pieces to objects are are not just bars or circles as before, but to less obvious but more every-day items such as pipes, hats or picture frames.
