CONS

  • Only a slight twist on an already heavily cloned game.
  • 'Deaths' take a while to process; hard to tell if an enemy is truly dead.

VERDICT

Chop Chop Slicer takes another swipe at the object slicing gameplay and manages to capture some of the original spark of fun by mixing things up.

The Chop Chop series of titles from Gamerizon has expanded once again with 'Slicer' following hot on the heels of their other recent release 'Rocket'. Chop Chop Slicer continues the adventures of the space-faring traveler of 'Rocket' as he crash-lands on an alien planet and must defend himself by slicing incoming enemies as quickly as possible.

The arcade swiping gameplay is a fun mix between Fruit Ninja and Slice It! and players must react quickly to incoming enemies, slicing accurately to destroy them instantly and rewarding them with bonus points if enemies are split down the middle. If your aim is slightly off you'll need to swipe again, making multiple targets a true challenge as you try to line them up for the perfect split. While multiple targets present their own problem, trying to determine the best angle to split the strangely shaped creatures isn't easy, especially when they float, slide and twirl their way on the screen to distract you.

Much like other slicing titles, the game is rendered in 3D to lend weight to each cut as pieces tumble off your victims with each slice. This can be a bit disturbing at times, especially when you're treated to an intimate view of their insides, but it's impressive to see the game fluidly handling cuts despite the amount of models on screen and the amount of cuts made.

Alternative game modes are also available and players can try their luck at scoring the longest chain of perfect cuts and beating the clock in a time-attack.

If you're a fan of games like Fruit Ninja you owe it to yourself to give this game a shot. While the premise is far from original, its execution is unique and strangely addictive; worth checking out if you need a high-scoring distraction.
