Slice the Box

elleYou're a bored kid with a box cutter in a room full of 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.

Slice the BoxLevels 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.

Play Slice the Box


My only real complaint with this game is the lack of an in-game hint system or link to a walkthrough.

@Rygar: I agree completely.

Level 8 seems to be impossible.


Last time I played I got stuck on level 13.

@ Rygar & CyberJar88 - Click on the video camera in the top left corner for the walkthrough.

I'm about half way though and haven't needed it yet, I accidentally clicked it when I was trying to line up a cut!

Great game! I love how the intro actually puts a purpose into why you're cutting up cardboard into shapes. And the idea and execution of the game are well done too. It's not hard either, since most levels are symmetric.

I've done the first 15 levels now, and found out that you can use one less cut on level 15 than you get, but since I ended up with a 2-cut, I had no choice but to use both points.

Engaging game. It would be great if a zoom option were available, especially for the master level which requires some close cuts!


@fledeye Whoa, when did they add that button? I'm pretty sure it wasn't there the last time I played.

This is a terrific game. I often lose patience with game like these, but I stuck with this one through every level. Some of them were quite challenging, but none were so hard that they felt unsolvable.
