You're a bored kid with a box cutter in a room full of boxes...you see where this is headed. Not random destruction. Creativity! Slice the Box is a simple idea puzzle game by Oleg Kuzyk and Alexander Ahura where you must create designated shapes given a limited amount of cuts, with a specific number of turning points that must be used. To slice, click outside the box, then draw a straight line that meets the outline of the shape, turning at 1-6 points if indicated, all the way across until that piece drops off. The challenge lies in creating the shape with as close to 100% similarity as possible while you can only start and end a slice outside the box and must use all the turns exactly as indicated.
Levels 1-10 are quite easy, then it gets increasingly complicated (and more fun) through levels 11-30. Yet, the puzzles are never frustratingly difficult since there's no time limit and resetting your cut via the [spacebar] eases your perfecting efforts. There's a redo button if you run out of cuts before your shape is complete, which means thoughtfully planning your moves or experimenting your way through is where most the gameplay lies, somewhat like Folds in that way. Those looking for quick action and lots of style won't find it here. Even so, Slice the Box is surprisingly gratifying despite its simple presentation and simpler gameplay. It's a relaxing endeavor, truly reminiscent of a rainy day of crafting.
