Growing Up, my mother taught me never to play with sharp objects. Well here’s my chance to show her that a knife can serve as a toy! Well maybe not exactly… Slice the box is a puzzle game that harnesses the power of slicing into creativity. The game is quite simple, you must create pre generated shapes using a given amount of slices. Slicing is quite easy, all you have to do is draw a straight line from one end of the box to the other turning at 1-6 points if indicated until the piece drops off. The challenge is to create the most similar shape to the one indicated with only the certain amount of slices.
Accompanying you throughout the entire gameplay, is light melodies that put you in a good mood and enlighten the entire experience. Now to be successful at Slice the Box, your goal is to cut the shape as precisely as you can. On each level you are allocated a different amount of slices with a twist. The twist is that you are not simply limited to single slice swipes but on different levels you can have up to 6 points in your overall swipe. This allows you to have the ability to fine tune slicing and cut more precise shapes.
