Ok, so what have we got here? A couch. A window. Some scissors suspended from the ceiling. A present with a lid that's firmly taped down. And The Boy with Tape on His Face in the middle of it all. From BBC Three comes a short, comedy-driven point-and-click game starring Sam Wills as his quiet little character with a slab of tape over his mouth. His goal is quite simple, and if you're going to help him get inside that box, you'll need to solve some pretty strange puzzles.
All you'll need for this full motion video adventure is your mouse, and all you'll need to do with it is figure out what needs to be clicked on and click on it! The boy takes care of the rest. As you complete actions and view short video scenes, the present meter on the right slowly fills up, showing your progress to full opening of the deliciously-wrapped box. If, in your clicking explorations, you trigger the same video more than once, a handy "skip" button appears at the bottom of the screen, allowing you to move right past videos you've already seen.
The Boy with Tape on His Face is more of an entertainment piece than a traditional game, even by casual standards. The puzzles are less challenging and more, well, inevitable. Keep clicking on things and you'll get to the end. Keep getting it wrong and the game will show you what's next. It's not about the work that goes into solving the puzzles, however, it's about the antics of the boy with tape on his face. If you've ever seen Sam's show you'll know what kind of humor to expect, so hop in and enjoy the brief but comical game starring the boy with tape on his face!
