I recently came across Slice It!, a neat little app. Maybe it is because I am an engineer and geek at heart, but I love this game. The premise is that you are given a shape, and with a certain number of “pencils” (which equate to lines), you need to slice the shape into a certain number of equal pieces by area.
The game starts off relatively simple (given a square, cut it into two pieces with one slice), but progressively gets much more difficult. It’s a much different pace compared to the recent side-scrolling games that have been dominating the charts lately. You actually have to stop and think (gasp!) about what lines you will draw that will eventually allow you to reach your goal.
As for drawing the lines, the app allows two distinct ways: utilize both fingers, allowing for dynamic movement of both end points, or setting one end point firm and change the location of the other end. This allows for fairly accurate slices, which is extremely important in the later rounds.
Luckily, there are also hints available should you get stumped. You get one hint point for every level that you get 5 stars on (which is based on how close the pieces are equal to each other).
Overall, this is a top-notch game, and really have no complaints. There are currently 70 levels, and the developers plan on releasing more advanced levels, increasing replay value.
You can grab it on iTunes for $0.99, and is compatible with the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad.
