Button Cutting is a very exciting and quite challenging puzzle game for Windows Phone in which you will wield the most ordinary scissors. Despite the fact that as a consumable buttons and denim are used in the game, nobody is going to make you a tailor. On the contrary, you will have to cut some colored buttons sewn by someone off a square of cloth, but it can be done only by following some rules.
Game featuresSo, the first condition that you will have to observe during the game, is that you can cut off minimum two buttons of a certain color. Given the size of the playing field, the maximum number of buttons is limited to seven, but in practice we have not seen this because of a completely natural mess that is absolutely necessary to create an interesting challenge.
The second condition is that the buttons can be cut off only horizontally, vertically and diagonally. No other combinations can be used in the game under any circumstances. In addition, between the buttons that you want to cut off, there shouldn't be differently colored buttons. In other words, when cutting off another combination of buttons, you need to make sure that you don't leave a button of a certain color alone on the playing field, since then you won't be able to cut it off. In addition, you have to calculate the moves so that the remaining buttons lie in one line, as in the end you will need to get rid of them.
Level range and controllingBefore the game starts, you can determine the size of the playing field (5x5, 6x6 and 7x7), as well as the complexity of the game (One or Two). In each category, you will find one hundred levels which means that a total of the game consists of 600 challenges. Controlling in the game is very simple. Touch the button of a certain color and draw a line from it towards other buttons of the corresponding color. If there are several options, you will see some dotted lines coming from the initial button in different directions. Choose the desired direction and a moment later scissors will emerge on the playing field, after which some threads alone will remain on the spots of selected buttons.
ResumeIn some ways, this game can be compared to chess, as before acting you will need to think over the situation a certain number of moves ahead. It is almost useless to rely on luck here. The game is designed quite modestly, but in general the graphics are of a very high quality, and the range of colors used is fairly wide. The sound doesn't feature anything extraordinary and is limited to the sound of scissors during their work.
