    Your mission is simple: USE THE MAGNET TO ATTRACT THE RAZOR TO SHAVE THE FACE!

    Pixelly arcade action.

    How to play:

    The magnet follows your touch around the screen. The razor is drawn towards the magnet. Cut hairs with the razor whilst trying not to nick your eyes, nose and mouth.

    Popping a pimple will temporarily reverse the magnet's polarity, causing the razor to be repelled.

    Make good use of the multiplier, powerups and scoring system for MASSIVE POINTS!


    Two shaving modes:

    * Classic mode. The old family favourite. Shave once, shave fast. Try to finish before your beard starts growing again.

    * Score Attack. Grab powerups, raise the multiplier, collect fruit. You have three minutes to score as many points as you can without fainting from blood loss.


    Bonus game mode!

    * Space Surfing. Endless and randomly generated. Be a penguin, surfing on a razor, in space. Collect rings and powerups, smash asteroids, share food with friendly space penguins.. Don't get hit by comets. Twirl/bump/shoot 'em up.

    Magnetic Shaving Derby is minimalism thrown in to a blender with a healthy dose of cringe-worthy moments and strangely enough it survives the mix, making this a whacky title to play and enjoy.

    Since there isn't much variety, and the score-attack mode lasts a scant three minutes, MSD likely won't hold anyone's attention for long. But for a handful of minutes every now and then, it's charming enough to lather up with.

    Even without any of this, Magnetic Shaving Derby delivers a lot of entertaining moments based on just the craziness alone.

    You don't need Magnetic Shaving Derby, of course. It doesn't demand your attention - it's simply a charming, silly, completely unessential purchase that's quite nice to have.
