Pato Box has a strong reminiscence to Super Punch-Out!! gameplay, intense fights with interesting characters and the need to replay the fights until you get the correct attack patterns of the enemies. However, the similarities end there: Pato Box proposes exploration as a fundamental part of the gameplay between fights. In these sections, you will have to find your way through Deathflock's headquarters while solving complex puzzles and mini games. During the whole game you will control Pato Box from a third person perspective, the only difference between exploration and combat is that in the earlier you will be able to move Pato Box through 3D environment.
