Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Cut It Up! is a puzzle game that requires good timing and sharp reflexes. The goal is to confine a group of bouncing balls into a confined space by slicing off pieces of the overall surface area of the shape until the specific size requirements are met. The game offers 16 levels that consist of various shapes outlining motivational slogans like "Failure is not falling down but refusing to get up." A second set of animal-themed levels can be unlocked.
Is it any good?
Requiring neither the mathematical precision of Slice It! nor the physics-based strategizing of Cut the Rope, CUT IT UP! is a slice-the-shape variation that boasts more of a fast-paced arcade feel. The unpredictability of the balls as they ricochet off each other and change speeds means players must be quick with their cuts. Difficulty is challenging but manageable, and there are medals to earn for completing levels with the minimum number of cuts for some added replay value.
