You are immediately put into the game upon opening the app. You see a blade and when you pull it you can see a red dot underneath. Your objective in every puzzle is to press all the dots by removing any blades from above them. If you fail to hold the blades while pressing the button, your finger gets sliced off.
That is all. You have blades that retract, blades that stick, and sometimes blades will move in response to other blades. That's the only complaint, that sometimes the game will just kill you when you don't know where a blade may come from, so unless you learn to pretend your finger is really on the line and go slow, you are in for a heavy dose of trial and error. The penalty for failure is a single level restart.
Restarting probably doesn't sound like much of a penalty for a puzzle game, but these are somewhat physical-based puzzles. You will need to use both hands and as many fingers as needed. Those with larger hands are at a huge advantage.
A very cool concept for a puzzle game that is something unique to the iPad. Its not the most rewarding experience, but its definitely something to show your pals.
