“Beautiful . . . the innovative gameplay of Cut the Buttons raises games for iOS to a completely new level.” – iphone4c.com, China

“I dare to say that in App Store there wasn’t anything like this before.” – appgefahren.de, Germany

“An exciting hit in the App Store that successfully uses the full potential of multi-touch screens. This application can be put together with such “titans of casual games” as Cut the Rope and Fruit Ninja.” – mobi.ru, Russia

“Who said you can no longer make anything new? Surely it wasn’t the producer of the Cut the Buttons game.” – iphonesoft.fr, France

- Unique gameplay concept.
- Unique interface.
- Unique multiplayer mode.
- Unique graphics.
- Unique sound effects.

Pick up the scissors with two fingers. Be careful. Don’t cut yourself. Cut off the game launch button by moving the scissor blades just like you would with real scissors. If you happen to be a left-handed player, you can configure the direction of the scissors within the settings menu.
The scissors are highly maneuverable. You can use them to control the direction at which the buttons fall after being cut. You can also move the cup with the hand that is not controlling the scissors.

CLASSIC. The game lasts until you miss three scraps of material with buttons left on them. Upon catching 100 buttons in the cup, you can either receive additional points or recover a previously lost button.
ARCADE. Cut off as many buttons as you can in the allotted time and do your best to drop them in the cup.

ATTENTION! Don’t cut buttons held down by bolts. Only cut buttons tied down with thread.
ATTENTION! Don’t press on the display. Your hand can become tired because of excessive pressure. The fingers have to slide on the display.

* You can hit the buttons in the main menu with a finger.
* Aim to cut off more than three buttons in a single cutting movement to maximize the amount of points you gain.
* Reduce the quantity of hand movements. Try to cut more than one button in a single cutting movement.

Enjoy! Play alone. Play with friends.
Cut, cut, cut.

Great Start, Anticipating Update

The concept is great. The sound of scissors slicing through fabric is ultimately satisfying. And the level to detail is wonderful, as they go so far as to add nicks and dings in the blade if you cut into the screws, making it tougher to cut as accurately as before.

The downside is that the gameplay itself is pretty bland, and the touch response isn't dialed in quite right. Too often the scissors don't want to follow my fingers, or they just won't close all the way because my fingers come too close together before the game registers a full slice.

Anxiously waiting for an update too at least fix the touch issue. 5 stars when they do. More variety in gameplay would be nice.


Cutting Up Buttons and Idea

I love this game. I enjoyed it on my iPod and had fun then but I remembered this game and got it for my iPad. I still enjoy it immensely.
But, if there was one thing I would like to add is a "zen" or "relax" mode. I use this game as a relaxation tool with the sounds of the buttons helping greatly. If you developed a slow version (like the first few moments of classic) that didn't have any penalties or metal buttons it would be amazing. Easily my favorite gaming app.



I love this mindless simple game, I think there could definitely be updates that could be made in the future. If fruit ninja can have flaming blades, why can't cut the button have a flaming scissor blade or just different types of scissors to add more incentives to the game play? Anyways, I'm sure there are already plans for improvements... But I would love to see you guys add more varieties of scissors!
