Remove Buttons with the Puzzle Game Buttons and Scissors
Tired of common puzzle games? Think you’ve basically tried every type there is? Well, you’d likely be mistaken, as XDA Forum Member knutson created a pretty unique new game called Buttons and Scissors. It’s sort of like Connect 4, but with (you guessed it) buttons and scissors.
Differing from the aforementioned Connect 4, only two buttons required to eliminate pieces, and the game pieces don’t shift after others have been removed. Furthermore, the buttons don’t have to be contiguous in order to be eliminated.
OK, so the game’s concept isn’t entirely new. However, how it is presented is undoubtedly unique. Plus, the graphics are crisp (with resolutions supported from QVGA all the way up to 1080p), and there are varying levels of difficulty thanks to different grid sizes (5×5, 6×6, and 7×7). This leads to a game that has you coming back again and again. Another cool feature is the cloud save and leader board support. And if you decide you’ve had enough, the game can also give you solutions or at least unlimited undo actions.
If you’re looking to get snipping, head over to the game thread and give Buttons and Scissors a shot. You may just find that the game cuts it—in more ways than one.
