          INTRODUCTION
    o---------------------o
    
    This is a clone of Boxxle but at least it still has its own puzzles. It is part
    of Caltron/Myriad 6-in-1 compilation game as well. This was recently added to
    the NES database so I'm splitting the guide up into 5 parts (Magic Carpet was
    done by Da Hui and he allowed me to use it in the 6-in-1 guide).

         GENERAL INFO
    o---------------------o
    
    Be aware that you can only push not pull the boxes so if you screw up just once
    then you'll have to restart the level at the cost of a life.
    
    Unlike the other games, you do have the priviledge of having five continues if
    you run out of lives.
    
    Boxes are numbered from left to right and up to down in this guide.

            GAMEPLAY
    o---------------------o
    
    Level 01: No brainer here. Just push them all to the right. 
    
    Time: 1:00
    
    -----------
    
    Level 02: You start above box 2, go down to box 4 and push it all the way to
    the left then up to spaces, go around to the other side and push it down. The
    other boxes follow the same procedure.
    
    Time: 2:00
    
    -----------
    
    Level 03: Box 3 is already in the stars, Push box 1 down, push down box 5, box
    4 goes to the left and immediately push down box 8, you are now free to go over
    to the boxes on the far right. Line them up around the edges. When you get all
    of the edges covered, carefully place the remaining boxes in place.
    
    Time: 4:00
    
    -----------
    
    Level 04: Push Box 6 to the right and then push box 9 down, go around and put
    box for in the upper right of the stars. Go around to the left of box 6 and you
    know what to do here. Now go to box 2 and push it up, go to the part on top of
    it and push it back down. Push box 1 into place. Go down and around back to box
    2 and you can push it into position on the far right star. I trust you can take
    it from here. Just be sure to know that when filling in the rest of the boxes
    on the bottom, put one in position, go around and push it to the far right.
    
    Time: 4:00
    
    -----------
    
    Level 05: Push box 4 right and go around the upper right and push down box 2.
    These three boxes you can figure out on your own but be sure to position 2 on
    the lower left stars and one on the lower right. Go to the lower left and push
    this box left and go up and around the loop and push it back. Go down through
    the path to another box and push it up and to the right side. Go back to the
    box in the lower area and put fill it into the upper right star. Now hit up the
    lower right and push the top box left and the middle box out in the open a box
    past the gap below, go around and put it into position. The other two of
    the boxes you can put into position easily to the 3rd quadrant. Now finish it
    and by going to the upper left and push the 3rd block from the top to the left
    and push the bottom box to the very right then to the bottommost star. The
    other three follow almost the same pattern but you can finish it from here.
    
    Time: 4:00
    
    -----------
    
    Level 06: I'll avoid numbering boxes from here on out, from the start, push the
    above box up, then go to the right and push the box blocking your path to the
    right two spaces. Go around the right and push up the box on the far right and 
    go out of the opening to the right and come and go to the block in the center 
    of the top and push it into the upper right area. Go back around to the opening
    to the right and remember the box I told you to push two spaces, go over there 
    and push the box that is above it first and push it in postion in the upper 
    right star available and then go back to box and position it below the previous
    box. Go to the lower left and push that block up and get it to the lower left 
    star but don't move it further yet, you are going to go around to the left 
    opening and push it to the right. Go back to the left. You will see three boxes
    The one on the bottom you'll push down twice, go around to the left of it and 
    push it right to the wall then push the block up and position it in position in
    the uppermost position. Go to the upper left and push down the box on the right
    and push the left box to the left one space, the lower one you will push to the
    bottom then come around and push it to the right and deal with it the same way 
    you positioned that other box before it. The final box is almost the same way 
    to. While it is sticking out, push it to the other opening and do your business
    
    Time: 5:00
    
    -----------
    
    Level 07: Go right then push the box over there to the right. Ignore it and go
    to the box above it and push it up one space, go around to the box at the top
    and push it left one box and the one box you passed on the way, you will push 
    that one down. Right now there are two boxes to your right, go to the right one
    and push it up and into postion all the way to the left. Now go to the other 
    box and push it to the left. Go to the box on the lower right and use it to 
    fill in the space. Go back the the lower left and push it to the left. Now you
    will see two boxes next to each other, push up the left one and then push the 
    right one all the way right. Push the other one back then put it in position 
    next to the previous box. The upper two boxes you can push them to the right. 
    The other two boxes you can finish however you like.
    
    Time: 3:00
    
    -----------
    
    Level 08: At the start, push down the box below you the go out and around the
    top and push the box there all the way left. Go to the bottom, and push down
    the bvox on the left once, and the go around and push it up as far possible
    and push it down five spaces. Now you may notice that on the right side of the
    area, you can move all the boxes into position one at a time by getting one to
    the left, pushing it up to the opening and pushing it down to the other box.
    Once all six boxes are taken care of, move to the left area but first push the
    left box down and move around it and push it to the top last left star. Now
    before you take care of the left side, go to the box that's in position and
    push it to the top right star. Now you can easily finish off this level in a
    similar fashion on what you did with the right side.
    
    Time: 4:00
    
    -----------
    
    Level 09: It's spiraling time. No help is really needed but to start things off
    for you, go around the level and to the block in the upper left and push it to
    the red star. I say spiraling time because that is the pattern this level will
    follow for an easy finish.
    
    Time: 3:00
    
    -----------
    
    Level 10: Go to the top right box near the start and push it down then in the
    middle area, push the 2nd box from the top to the right and the box above
    you upward. Now go down and push the box you see until you can move around to
    the other side and put it back. Now for the lower right, push the lower box 
    to the right and then push the upper box to the right three spaces. Go around
    and push the box out of the way and go over to the box go the very right and 
    push it to the very top and the very left. Repeat for the other box in the 
    lower right. Return to the middle of the screen and the 2nd box from the top 
    you see will go to the upper right star. To get it and other stars there, 
    avoid the red stars near the right wall as you stack them together. Now go to 
    the boxes on the left and push it to the right and do things the exact same
    way as the previous boxes. Now for the tricky part. Go back to the boxes and
    get in that space between them. Push the upper box up and the lower box down.
    Push the upper box left and go around it. The rest of the level is easy to 
    figure out from here.
    
    Time: 04:00
    
    -----------
    
    Level 11: At the start, push the left box all the way to the left then go to
    the lower block and push it over to the star. Go back to space to the right of
    the star behind you and push the box above it up one space. Go into the opening
    on the right and push the right box into place. Go to the top and push the
    upper box to the left to the star. Go back to the bottom and push up on the box
    that is there one space then to the right you will push that box into position.
    You should now be between an two already positioned boxes. Push the upper one
    to the top. Go down and around to the box that was in the next column and push
    it to the right. Go to the top and left. Push down the box below you one space
    and push the left box into position and now you can do the rest.
    
    Time: 6:00
    
    -----------
    
    Level 12: At the start, do not touch any boxes yet, just go up and around to
    the upper box above the stars and push it to the right and push the lower box
    down to the bottom and all the way left. You notice that you can put a lot of
    boxes into position from this standpoint, so as soon as you come out from the
    top, take the box to the left and put it into postion next to the previous box.
    Push a few boxes out of the way as you make your way around the room to the box
    on the lower right and push it to the bottom and to the left on one star for
    the time being.As far as how you line the boxes up, a few you will put into
    position from the top and some you will put into position from the left. The
    last few boxes will be on the lower right star after you get through putting
    that one temporary box all the way to the left. 
    
    I'll make a video on this for youtube in the future.
    
    Time: 6:00
    
    -----------
    
    Level 13: From the start of the level, do through the bottommost path of the
    level to the end and push up the box two stars past the gap on the right. This
    will only serve as a temporary spot. Go back down to the middle path and push
    the box just over the gap and go around and push it to the bottom then push it
    right past the next star. You need that star space free to insert the next two
    boxes in position. Go to the outside and push inside a block until it is under
    the opening go around and push it to the bottom. Remember when I said leave the
    other star space open? Go inside that area and push the box into the lower left
    corner. Repeat the pattern of the previous box with your next box and position
    it next to the previous box. Now you can go to that box I said to overshoot the
    star earlier and push it back now that there is no need for the space anymore.
    Go to the box in the upper right of the inside and push it all the way to the
    bottom. Now the bottom stars are done. See that box at the top of the inside?
    Push it to the right one space to give you room to maneuver.
    
    You will be taking boxes from the outside and bring most of them in from them
    the left side. But before you do, there is one more box to take care of. Bring
    in a box from the right side and push it over the opening then go around and
    push it down into the star. Now wheteher you push any box in from the left or
    the right, push it inside to where it is underneath the left opening. Try to
    fill in the right side first but don't push a box to the inside top yet, be
    sure to have enough room to move around position the box in the lower star in
    the upper right. Before finish the upper ride side, leave a space in the lower
    section so you can manuever through the top and position the leftmost and upper
    star. When you are down to two stars in the outside, push the lower box into
    position and you can finish this level by pushing the two remaining boxes into
    place on the left side easily.
    
    Time: 6:00
    
    -----------
    
    Level 14: This is going to take some very very careful planning. The part that
    is going to be crucial is setting up where the last four blocks are going to be
    placed. Push down the block a couple steps so you can go around to the right of
    it push it left all the way then all the way up as far as possible. Push it to
    just one block away from the wall then push it down until it is one block away
    from the floor. Go back and this time enter the jumble of boxes from the inside
    and retrieve the only loose block and push it down all the way until you can do
    the same to it as what you did to the last block except you will push it up to
    the point before the grey block. Now go along the top and push the top block
    down to the point where you are going to stash the block to the side as well
    and just leave it a block away from the wall. These are going to be the final
    boxes you will put into place. Fill in the left side of the stars then retrieve
    a box and place it above them. This is going to be the box you will put in
    place before the last three. Now take a box and places on the bottom next to
    the three boxes and take another box and place it just down the middle to the
    middle star and push it right then push it down. Go back and place a box next
    to block I labeled as forth to last just above the stars. 
    
    Go back to the top and this time you will place a box in the right middle. The
    final box on the top will be place just above the starts. Go to the left and
    push down the box next to the previously used box into place then go back to
    the other box and it into place all the way right. Now we have that fourth to
    last box to put in place. Go down to the left of it, push it right once then
    push it down into the place. Now you are able to finish out this level with the
    final three boxes that were stashed earlier. Push one into place and shove it
    all the way to the very right and then go around and push it all the way down.
    Rinse and repeat and you are done.
    
    Time: 6:00
    
    -----------
    
    Level 15: At the start, push up the block to the right just once then go right
    and pushthe right box into the gray block. Now push the above block up just
    once and go right to the box at the far right and push it as far down as you
    can. Make a quick turn to the left then a quick turn down and push the right
    block into place to the very right. Notice the other red box to the lower left?
    I want you to push that down to the bottom. Now enter the bottom space on the
    left and go down to the bottom and push that bottom box upwards then to the
    right to the wall and push it up to the bottom star. Go left among the top
    passage and push down the left box and leave the one to the right of it by
    itself because that is going to be crucial to completing the top stars. Now
    with the box I want you to push down, you are going to push it down just a
    block away from the floor then go around and push it to the right until you are
    above the star that's left on the bottom then push it into place. Take the lone
    box in that area and push it beneath the top right red box. 
    
    Go out and make your way towards the top and the first box you see on the
    right (On the way up, you will hit a wall and see the box just to the lower-
    right of you. Go to the left of it and push it left then down to opening one
    block from the bottom. Go around and push it up and to right before the wall,
    and push it down then to the right. Go near the spot where you began the level
    and you will see that block that you pushed to the right (2nd block you touched
    at the start) and you will move that box up and to the right, and you will
    move it into position in similar fashion as the last box and while it is in
    the middle before the wall and push it to the bottom. Now you are going to the
    very beginning of the level and the left box to the right and move the box
    into the same area as before and push it down into place. The next box is just 
    above you already in the red. I want you to push that down and that once then
    go around and finally put that other box into position at the top. Time to wrap
    things up.
    
    Go back to the stage beginning and push the box down and take it around to the
    main area like you have done most others and you will have it one star inside
    then go around and push it down. Go to one box near the beginning and push it
    into the left hole and go around and push it into place which I assume you will
    know. Then do the same for the other box. Now there is one more block to put in
    place. Go around the left and push it to the right then up. Go around and push
    it right and down until you are position to finish the level.
    
    Time: 6:00
    
    -----------
    
    Level 16: This may take a few tries but thanks to me, you can complete this in
    less than a minute. Start by pushing the box right of you to the right then go
    down push the two lower boxes into the corners. Go out and around to the top
    right and push the box there into its corner. Go left until you reach the 2nd
    star on the top. Push it down to just before the bottom star. Push the left box
    into place on the left. Push up the block up and to the left into place. Go
    down to the lower left box and push it up before the star and go to the lower
    right box and push it up once. To the left push that box there to the left once
    then go around to the top and around to the third star and push down that box
    to before the star. Go around to the right of the top right box and push it to
    the left and you know what to do here. Finish the level.
    
    Time: 6:00
    
    -----------
    
    Level 17: Start by going to the right by pushing that box next to you into the
    wall. Go up one space and then push that box on the right to the right until it
    touches the wall. Go down to the lower box and push that in place  as well. Now
    go up and on the way, you will push an unplaced box up on space then push the
    other box down into the lower star. Go back to the other box and push it down
    to a space before the floor. Go around and push it up once then put it and the
    other box in that region in their places respectively. Next go up and the first
    box you see, push it to the left once then go up and push the next box to the
    right. Go to the top and push that box to the very right. Now we'll work on
    the lower left hand side. Go down and to the bottom left and push that box to
    the left then go down and push it to the very left. Go around and push another
    box in that region (the only one that you can push to the left) all the way to
    the left wall. Go up and push up that box then go around and push it just one
    space before the floor then go around and push it up once then push the other
    box down a star. Now place the previous box and the other box in that region 
    into place respectively.
    
    To finish this off, go to the upper right and leave the boxes alone. I merely
    wanted you to go around to the upper left and push the box you come across to
    the left in the block then go up and push that upper box all the way to the
    wall. Go back and go down to the other box you are capable of pushing left all
    the way to the wall then push it up. Go back and push the next box up and to
    the left once into the star. Now push the remaining box in that region until it
    is parallel with an opening so you can push it left once. Now push it into its
    place when it is parallel with the star. Go back the very upper right and push
    up the box. Now the two remaining boxes, push them to the right once then you
    can finish things from here.
    
    Time: 6:00
    
    -----------
    
    Level 18: This level is not so tough at all. This is merely a test of patience
    and timing. As you can see from the stars below, you are just shoving one box
    out of the side then going around and pushing it into place. Be sure to not let
    a box touch a wall. When placing a box to the outside, make sure the side stays
    free. It takes a long time to clear the middle.
    
    Time: 6:00
    
    -----------
    
    Level 19: Start off by pushing the right box about four stars. Go around to the
    other side and push the lower box to the left once then push the upper box down
    into place. Go up and take the box you see down to the lower star. Go up to the
    next box and push it to the left two spaces then push it down to the just above
    the upper star and go up. Just before you get to the top box, push the box on
    the left to the left until you are free to go out through the top. Go down the
    left side and push the lower box to the right side. Go out the left hole and
    return to the previous box and push it onto the upper star and go out and then
    around to push it to next to the other box. Go out the left and push up the
    lower box once and then push it to the leftmost star and keep it there. Go to
    the very top of the room and push the upper box to the very bottom. Go back to
    near the top and push any box down to the lower box. Next go to the upper right
    and push down the box into the final star at the bottom.
    
    Now to fill in the left side. Go to the upper left and push the box over to the
    right until it's underneath the top opening. Push it down until it is about
    parallel with the lower set of three stars and go around and push it left once
    then to the very left. Go up around the upper right and push up the star on the
    right and then push the star on the left into the block and go around and do to
    it what you did to one previous block and put it into place. Do the same thing
    with any other random box. The level can be finished anyway you like since you
    are home free from here.
    
    Time: 6:00
    
    -----------
    
    Level 20: The trick to beating this level is to fill out the top stars first
    then take care of the bottom stars. This level gave me lots of hell until I
    figured a strategy that paid off. Start off by moving the box on your right to
    the right once. Then go to the top and push the box positoned in the lower
    right of the 10-star set and push it left once then go back to the star that is
    positioned on the lower right of the four-star set. Take the leftmost box and
    push it right once. Go to the very right then down and I want you to push a box
    alone in that reigon to the very top then into place on the leftmost star.
    Shift the bottom boxes (except the left one) to the right once then go to the
    right one and push it down until you got some breathing room then push it to
    the top then to the very left into place. Repeat the pattern once again and put
    this box on the next available star. Repeat the pattern just one more time but
    do not place the box in the next star. Place it in the star to the right of it.
    Go to the now empty spot and push the box in the gap to the left once, then
    push another box down and then go around and push it back up. Loop around the
    bottom and push the box in the way to the right. Make it back to the top and
    you will come across that same box you pushed to the right at the beginning.
    You will push this one up once. Remember that space I said to leave open, push
    that box beneath it into that spot. Go down and push the next box below to the
    right until you are just before the wall. Go around and push it up and to the
    left. One more top star to go. Make your way to the only lower box positioned
    in the lower stars and push it all the way to the rightmost star and then go
    around underneath it and push it up.
    
    The lower stars are easy to put into place. No matter what box you put up there
    you can go around to the very left side and place it into position. I suggest
    pushing on of them into the very right area first then go around place it on
    the very right. The next two you can push it through the gap and then push it
    to the right from around the left side. The last four you can push it through
    the very left side through careful planning.
    
    Time: 6:00
    
    -----------
    
    Level 21: This level is not as hard as it looks. The trick to completing this
    level is lining up all the boxes in vertical lines. This may seem tedious and
    time consuming but once everything is in place, you can finish this level in no
    time. The key do lining things up vertical is not to touch any boxes on the end
    to the left or right. Work your way up from the bottom as you constantly shift
    each box to the left or right depending on where the upper boxes are positioned
    and each time you go up a row. There is enough breathing room to line all the
    boxes vertically. Once successful, you can push everything into place starting
    from the inside first. 
    
    The upcoming video will give more detail.
    
    Time: 9:00
    
    -----------
    
    Level 22: Push the box on the right of you to the right. As for the box that 
    was below you at the start, go around and push it up once. Also go up and push 
    the red box to the right. Push up another box so you can temporarily clear a 
    path that you can use to move between the upper and lower region. Go to the 
    lower left region and push up the box that is there and push the right box all 
    the way to the right as possible and go back to the lower left reigon and push 
    the upper box to the right once then go around to the box on the lower left 
    over the gap then push it down.
    
    Go around through other gap and push the lower box into the area where the 
    previous box used to be. Go around to the top box in that same region then push
    it down and to the left into that star. This will free up two spot for two of 
    the three boxes in the middle of the level. Before messing with any of them 
    just yet, go back to inside the lower-right region and push the left box up
    just once. Retrieve the lower middle box and push it all the way to the right 
    as possible then maneuver through the right region to get around to the above 
    the box and push it down until it is three spaces above the floor.
    
    Go around the top and push it into another box and get underneath it and push
    it up into place. The next middle box you choose will follow the same type
    of method as the previous one. Go ahead and push the upper-left box into place
    to the left. Go back to the lower-right and push up the box on the inside up
    until it is lined with the other box in that area. Go back around and push the
    other box into the star below.
    
    Go to the last middle box and get it to the right as possible. Push it up about
    three space before the ceiling and go inside the right region and push the box
    that is lower left within the inside down until there is a gap before the other
    box below then go back up to the higher box and push it down twice then up once
    and push it to the right into place. Push the upper-left inside block down just
    twice (should be above the star). Go out and push the box wedge in the upper
    right opening to the right then down a little bit then return to that middle
    box I told you to hold off on. Push it up once then go around the top-right and
    push it to the left into place. The rest is easy to finish here.
    
    Time: 6:00
    
    -----------
    
    Level 23: Go to the upper-rightmost box and push it up once then go down and
    go to the third box from the top on the very right side of the area and push it
    to the left then push up the box that was above it just once. There should be
    one more box below you. Push that up once and start filling in the spaces. No
    further help is even necessary. Just do your thing.
    
    Time: 6:00
    
    -----------
    
    Level 24: Start off by pushing up the box that blocks your path. Ignore the
    other box in this part of the area and go up. See the gap in the boxes in the
    upper-left? Go through that gap and shove at least one of the boxes into that
    narrow passageway you went up earlier. Go to the area above the upper-leftmost
    box and push it down once then push left the other upper box. This frees up
    room for pushing up the box blocking the right passageway without any further
    precussions.As for the block in the passageway already, push it all the way to
    the right then push it down into place. Don't go to the lower-right just yet.
    There are some other blocks in the upper-left region you can take care of. For
    the block that was previously blocking access to the passageway, you can place
    it in the very upper-right of the level. Put two more boxes into the other two
    stars.
    
    By now, you should have one box left in the upper-left reigon. Ignore that box
    and go to the upper-right region then push down the box to gain access to the
    lower-right. Ignore the boxes in this reigon for now since these will be the
    final three boxes you'll put in. Go into the lower-left area and push all the
    boxes into the upper-left so you can push them into place. When doing so, don't
    push any boxes in the middle stars. Those will be the for the final three boxes
    in the lower-right.
    
    Time: 6:00
    
    -----------
    
    Level 25: For a last level, this is not too hard to complete at all. It follows
    a very simple pattern. Fill in the stars from the bottom. Start by going down
    the gap and work your way to the middle right. Push down the box blocking the
    passageway and start inserting the boxes in that region into place. If you got
    a box in at the top of the lower region that you want to push to the bottom of
    the star area, you can go out the middle right and around to the upper-left
    side and work from there. Once you got the lower-right reigon taken care of,
    any other box can be completed by pushing it into a solid block on the far
    right in the upper region then pushing it down until you are even with the gap
    and do your duty. It's all downhill from here. Go forth and win the game.
    
    Time: 6:00
    
    Once you complete this level, the screen will say Level W and reset. Good job
    you have completed the game. As said before, I will be making an accompanying
    video of Porter for Youtube to make stuff easier to understand.
