Running With Scissors is a recently released XBLIG from Utopioneer Games worth checking out, if only for a moment. There's not much to the game and it feels like more of a concept than a full game, but it's the concept I dig and something I'd like to see expanded on in a future game.
If you've played one of countless endless runners like Canabalt and Jetpack Joyride (running isn't mandatory), you already know half of what makes up Running With Scissors' gameplay. The other half is a quick-time-event-like mechanic of pressing buttons displayed before your character reaches them on screen. Failing to press the correct buttons leaves your character with a face full of scissors. Add the two components and behold a game where you play as a boy running forever while button prompts show up on screen inside street signs and if when you eventually screw up you can enjoy watching the poor boy fall right into his scissors.
It's not particularly pretty and the music gets old fast, but I see potential in the game and believe it could become something special with more polish and tweaks to the gameplay. And if you take the time to give the game a shot and find yourself having fun, the full game is only 80 MS points ($1.00) and won't make much of a dent in your bank account.
