Cut the Monster 2
We're not even sure what these monsters did that makes them so horrible. Poor fashion choices? Body odor? It's not our place to judge. What we do know is that it's fun chopping them to pieces with a laser gun and watching the bits fly hither and thither across quirky, creative maps. That's just what the team at Best Physics Games have given us in Cut the Monster 2, a physics-based puzzle game that marries Rube Goldberg contraptions with a hefty dose of schadenfreude. Simply aim the laser cannon with the [mouse] at various reflector plates, buttons, levers and ropes, and watch the monsters tumble and slide into firing range. Slicing them up is a joy, even if the path to get them there is fraught with trial and error.
Cut the Monster 2 isn't very hard until the midway point, but the physics engine keeps things fun. It's always a joy to watch these monsters get what's coming to them. As with many similar games, there are a couple stars floating around each level that you can try to collect for some bonus points. You have to knock debris or monsters into the stars to grab them, so every misplaced body part will cost you. While the physics are strong, the game is not totally devoid of glitches or odd miscalculations. The monsters don't always fall exactly where you want them to, nor do the machines you can activate behave the same way each time. These moments are few and far between, however. For the most part, forethought and good aim will serve you well in this game. Now strap on your laser gloves and get to exterminating. There's monsters that need to get cut.
