Remember Cut The Rope? Well, it now has a new counterpart. Characterized by its simplicity yet fun and addictive gameplay, Go Slice by Lucky Kat Studios will take you to a series of challenging levels with a varying range of difficulty. The game will definitely put your skills and knowledge on a great test. As what the title of the game connotes, the main objective in this game is to help your character reach the flag by creating them a safe passage. In order to do so, you must slice the paper and allow them to fill the gaps below and let the creature pass through. It’s a simple goal yet surprisingly tricky to master. If you think you are skillful enough for the game, feel free to explore Go Slice and see how far your skills can take you.
The mechanics of the game are simple and absolutely manageable. As soon as the game starts, it will prompt you right away to the first level. Interestingly, each level is presented in a very simple manner. The 2D sketch-like map will feature a creature and a flag located on two opposing sides. The goal is to bring the creature towards the flag in order to clear the level and progress to the next map. The map will also feature a brown paper which you can slice and cut. The sliced piece will drop at the bottom which allows you to fill any gap or to create an inclined platform that paves way for your creature to overcome any obstacles.
Once you slice the paper, the creature will automatically move and there is no other way to manipulate its action. If you failed, you can always Retry the level until you managed to make it through. However, please be mindful that each level is rated from one to three stars (three being the highest) and it will highly depend on the time you have spent and the number of times you have repeated the level. Therefore, early completion and less repetition will help you achieve higher ratings.
Increasing Difficulty and Hints
Go Slice is a simple game but surprisingly tricky especially when you have reached higher levels. The rate of difficulty will drastically increase as you progress. At first, you can only slice the paper once but eventually, you will be needing to slice them twice or thrice depending on the given situation. You should do it in a timely manner, otherwise, the strategy will fail and you will have no other option but to start the level back from the very beginning.
In case the strategy fails, you can always retry the level but if you want to get a perfect rating without taking any risk, you can always take advantage of the Hint features. The hint will reveal the right pattern or the right way to cut the papers. You can earn Hints and coins from the Spin Wheel which you can only access right after the Boss Levels. Speaking of which, players will encounter Boss Levels after every five levels. In this level, you need to free other creature by guiding your character towards the lever (instead of a flag).
Chests and New Characters
Another interesting feature of Go Slice is the ability to open Chests. Once you have defeated the Boss Levels or after completing Five consecutive levels, you will have the ability to open the Chest. The chest will reveal a Spin Wheel which gives you a chance to win either additional Hints or Extra Coins. Interestingly, the coins are mainly used to unlock new characters. You can unlock new characters by either saving them from the Boss Levels or by manually unlocking them through the shop. Each character will cost 200 Coins and they are randomly generated. If you want to unlock exclusive characters, you can upgrade your account to VIP which also allows you to remove ads.
Go Slice is absolutely simple yet fun and surprisingly challenging. It may not offer a visually stunning graphics but the gameplay is definitely addictive which makes this game definitely worth downloading. You can also retry previous levels which give Go Slice an incredible replay value. Not to mention the special challenges that you can explore. Go Slice is currently available on both Android and iOS devices and you can download the game on your mobile for free. Enjoy!
