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.

Cut, cut, cut.

Not fun at all, and really janky to use a scissors with two of your fingers.

Incredible and wonderfully innovative!!

A shinning example of innovation in multitouch interactive mobile gaming. This really has one of those "perfect games for the iPhone/iPod touch" vibe to it. It's accessible, it's pick up n play, and it makes great use of the capabilities of the touch screen, particular with the use of multitouch.

I do have to agree with a few of the complaints however. Yes, it is rather uncomfortable to play on the tiny iPhone/iPod screen, but I imagine this wouldn't be a problem on the iPad. There are a few issues with the multitouch detection as well, particularly in loosing hold of the scissors or the basket, but again, this is probably due to the cramped screen and would most likely be resolved on the iPad. Another issue is that it's lacking more gameplay options, which can be remedied with a few updates :)

Overall though, a really great, polished, and incredibly innovative title!
