SLICE IT! HD [TOUCHPAD] – REVIEW (82%)

27 Aug

Slice It! HD is a doodle style puzzle game released by Com2uS Inc.

Slice it! is a puzzle game, where you slice different figures into the same ratio (or surface area).

The game is simple. A shape is drawn on the screen and you must cut it into x number of pieces using a set number of lines you are given. The line must be straight and cut through at least part of the shape. It sounds very easy and it is for the first few levels. However, when you need to cut two different shapes into five pieces with just three line then the real brain teasing begins.

Gameplay wise, you place your finger / two fingers on the screen to draw. Using one finger you can drag a line from the start point. However, I find it better to use two fingers and drag around the line below them, as this makes for better and easier positioning.

You can undo any line you are unhappy with, but when the last line is drawn the puzzle solution will be tested. Getting fairly equal sizes will complete the puzzle, if not you fail and need to try again. 

There is a hint system that helps to place a line of the puzzle, and can be vital is some of the later puzzles.

If you complete a level successful you can earn hints to help you complete later puzzles if you become stuck.

There are currently two episodes within Slice It! HD will 100 puzzles in each, for a total of 200. 

The graphics and sound are functional and well designed.

On the upside:

  • An excellent puzzle game.
  • Easy to play, but hard to put down. Just one more try at that one.

On the downside:

  • Puzzle get hard fairly quickly.
  • Later on, if you run out of hints you can be in trouble in progressing.

We have played the iOS version and there is very little difference in gameplay or levels.

Overall, this is an excellent puzzle game, that I have found myself returning to several time, the puzzles are getting pretty hard now, but it has not put me off yet. There are lots of puzzles and it will take some time to complete this game. If you like this type of brain teaser than his game is a must.
