Very interesting. I imagine it would be better on a touch device where you have more precise control over the cutter, but a mouse was adequate to show it off.

Wow, incredible. Add more objects and cutting patterns and make a android version! :D

Nice idea! Love how the cutting-mechanic is implemented / faked :P

This was very well implemented, nice job. If you made this into an iOS/Android game and fleshed it out a bit more, I'd buy it :)

Nice... its a shame the theme of this contest gets in the way of actually enjoying the game!

The controls probably need to be a bit more forgiving for mouse input than they would be for touchscreen. Could be a lot of fun with a longer play time, more objects to cut, combo multipliers etc.

Nicely done

Some time addition could be awesome.
Fun game!

I agree with making it slightly more mouse-friendly at least, but the idea behind it was awesome.

Nicely done, reminds me slightly of one of wii sport minigames. The mechanics feels very satisfy, to discourage waving about randomly you should cut the board in half regardless of if its done correctly or not, then the player will have to be more precise and careful.

Addictive and quite fun, but if you didn't get it straight across the line, it wouldn't cut. It was frustrating, which added to fun and addiction, but was really annoying.

Like the others, I took think this would've made for a good mobile game! Well done, and good luck!

Pretty fun, addictive game. I featured it in my Ludum Dare 27 video compilation series, if you'd like to check it out,

Cutting stuff up is always fun :)

Nice job on the sound effects, too.

Nice entry!

You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
