In the game, the player takes control of a man who has to save innocent citizens while killing zombies. The game never ends and has unlimited levels. Every time the player passes a level, the game gets harder, for example, the zombies get more powerful.
The game is set in a town called Boxville, where there are buildings and trees all over the place. Once the player has guide the citizens, there is an x at the end of each level. The citizens will pass it and that means that they are safe. The game is not very well designed when it comes to graphics.
The game has eight sequals. The first of which is Boxhead: The Rooms. The game is almost the same, except for the fact that the objective is not saving citizens and there are different maps on which to play.
