A bit much for someone who loves fluffy creatures but otherwise it's a great game.

Flick cute little critters around the place. Sacrifice them to make way for others. Or just inevitably misplace your throw and horribly murder some of them.
Critters swear at you under their breath with their high-pitched voices.
Contains many vulgar but funny jokes.

But seriously, this is a great puzzle/physics/action game that feels a lot like Lemmings. No, it's not mindless murder, the goal is actually to save as many critters as you can, with careful planning and agile execution - by moving and throwing them with interesting interactions with the environment and the gadgets that it contains.

This game was either designed for touch screens, or not designed thoughtfully. That being said, this game isn't the worst, just not right for the PC. I really wish the system here was a scale, and not a binary recommend or not.

This is alot like Angry birds, especially the concept. A puzzle game where you fling cute little things to their elevator destination and hopefully they dont get all cut up.

The things die.
They are sort of cute.
Would prefer if the point of the game was to kill them rather than save them. :P

As title says Cute Things Dying Violently, but its more then that.
Very cute and funny puzzle game, where your goal is to save at least one creature, sometimes you will have to sacrfice one or more to save the rest, but life is a bi**h.

Gameplay is very addictive, somewhere close to Angry Birds. Fun guaranteed.
Great ammount of levels, each unique and harder then one before, with each set of levels completed comes juicy boss fight.
Another + is level editor and new levels coming out every week so you dont get bored ^^
Nothing special to say about graphic and sound, its just ok for this type of game.
Game is easy to get and start playing for beginers, but will require a skill to master it.

Overall:
A fun casual game with reasonable price, will give you enough of good play time for that money.

Death By Buzzsaw

Cute Things Dying Violently is a game where the player may choose to rescue cute critters. These are the types of critters that one would expect to find wandering around aimlessly in a flower bed, through grassy planes, or even in a lightly wooded forest area. However, as I said, the player has a choice, and that choice may lead the player into causing a certain and painful death. Either intentionally, or even quite possibly accidentally. The player may choose to throw these critters onto spikes, into fire hazards, within a bolt of lightning, cause death due to falling, or the player’s choice of small to large buzzsaws can be utilized as well. I really think the developer watched one too many “Saw” movies.

Cute Things Dying Violently is created by ApathyWorks. The game has 60 pre-designed levels. However, with the integration of Steam Workshop and a Level Editor, the potential amount of levels is pretty limitless. This game is heavily integrated onto the Steam PC platform, and as such it also possesses Steam Trading Cards and Steam Achievements. The developer truly went all in, on the Steam platform. Another nice feature is the weekly challenge through the level of the week format from the main menu.

They are cute, adorable but sometimes a sacrifice is needed! This game is super fun it reminds me of lemmings and angry birds. I'm currently doing a series on this game because I enjoy it that much ^_^ theres also a level editor and level of the week which I have not tried out yet but will soon! I highly recommend this game if you like platformers, comedy and dark humor! It can also make you rage from time to time as the stages get difficult as you go further ;)

I want to share the video with you guys, so here it is! :) : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S6zQIawHnog

While it's a pretty casual flash-era game, it's still entertaining. Not hard to plow through, but not that long either.

Subjective: ★★★★☆
Objective: ★★★★★ — Graphics: ★★☆ — Content: ★★☆ — Handling: ★★★

This is such a great and addictive game! Some levels are simple at the beginning and they do get pretty challenging towards the end.
The controls reminds me a bit of Angry Birds, but the game has much more elements to it and it's very original.
Those Critters remind me of myself sometimes (because of the way they talk), which is really funny :3
The fact that this game is on iOS and Android is a bonus, so that i can take the game with me everywhere i go :P

Nice little game. It is quite cheap and have a lot of various game mechanics that make every levels diffferent.
Around 5 hours to 100%.
However, you have to know that Steam Workshop is not implemented yet.

This game has an Angry Bird feel to it but is still different from it, it is for casual gamers adn I am pretty sure most of them will love this game. The controls are easy, left click to move your critter around, right click to throw it.

I really suggest that you choose the inverted option because if your critters are on too low, you won`t be able to have them fly hard enough, it takes a little while to

adjust moving your cursor up to have them go up I must say but it will make your life so much easier.

Game play is basic, you need to save at least 1 critter to beat the level, to do this, they must enter the elevator waiting for them. Sounds easy right? Not so fast. You will find obstacle blocking your path, buzzsaw, fire, solid block, spikes. You will have to use switches, springs and everything not tied down to help you get out.

For achievement hunters, you`ll find 23 of them and to get that mischievous complete game, you will have to ace all of the levels in this game, I.E. complete each level with the minimum death allowed.

Just because of that, there is replay ability and on top of that, you get a Level of the week and Steam Workshop support to add player created levels.Level editor is also in the game so no need to download another app to do it.

Final thought: If you like this genre of game, get it and you`ll be happy with your purchase.
