Go Slice is a puzzle game where you are trying to guide small pixelated characters to an end goal by cutting up slices of paper to fill in gaps or manipulate objects. Cuts to the pieces of paper can be made horizontally, vertically, or diagonally, but must be a straight line. 

The levels start out fairly simplistic but then begin to use multiple cuts of paper and varying objects that need to be adjusted. Puzzles have multiple paths to success so the player can try different approaches on the same puzzles and still achieve their goal. 

By completing boss levels, the player can free additional pixelated characters that can then run in future levels. Players can also earn coins by completing puzzles which can then be used to purchase additional characters. 

Go Slice is a free-to-play game but an add-free purchase option is available.

Go Slice helps kids practice and improve the following skills:

Flexibility: Adapting and adjusting to changing conditions and expectations. 

Each puzzle in Go Slice presents a unique challenge to the player but there are multiple ways that each problem can be solved. The player needs to use their flexibility skills to see the multiple ways in which the puzzle could be solved. For players who struggle with flexibility, they may find it difficult to find the solutions to the puzzle and need to start over a few times before they are able to figure out how to move on to the next level. Players can also watch ads for hints but if they do not want to do this, they may want to start with an easy level and experiment with different cutting methods on the same puzzle. This way they can get a better understanding for what can be done within the game and how to approach harder puzzles in future levels. 


Focus: Getting started and then maintaining attention and effort to tasks. 

For each puzzle, players receive a set number of “scissors” that they can use for any given puzzle. If the player makes a mistake and their character gets stuck, or they cut the wrong shape, they lose a pair of scissors. If they lose all of them, they need to retry the level. If they lose one or two pairs, it affects their star rating on the puzzle. Players need to use their focus skills to pay attention to what the puzzle requires them to do before they make any cuts into the paper. For players who struggle with focus, practicing several times with earlier levels will help them get familiar with how they can manipulate the environment and how to make as few mistakes as possible so they can solve the puzzle with the highest possible score.
