Players that experience Pato Box are sure to notice the distinct thick-lined, black-and-white aesthetic meant to inspire comic book art, but the game has so much more to offer in its quirky and engrossing package. Inspired by the classic NES game Punch-Out, Pato Box follow similar combat mechanics, but instead of a human players take control of a strange human-duck hybrid. The concept is obscure, but delving deeper into the game only bring up more questions. The player's goal is to uncover a conspiracy behind a mysterious company, known as Deathflock, and in doing so will offer some sort of closure to the game's protagonist.

The gameplay is incredibly tight with combat and movement controls being incredibly responsive, but it is clear that the main focus of Pato Box is on the striking aesthetics. Drawing inspiration from comic book and manga art, the game beautifully uses black and whites to create a unique and engrossing world.
