MonsterCut is a Barbershop of Horrors

What do monsters do in their spare time, apart from working at Monsters, Inc? Spanish studio Nemoris Games believes the answer to that is establishing a hairdressing salon, and engaging in fierce style competition with fellow salons. MonsterCut puts players in the role of one of three brave barbers who must quickly attend to their clients’ needs; fussy monsters descend upon the salons in waves, challenging you to cut their hair as quickly as possible-without the Sweeney Todd special.

There are four different monster clients to deal with, including Medusa who at any point may turn you into stone, and Nosferatu, blessed with a retro, afro hair style that will not leave you in peace.

MonsterCut is currently available for free from the App Store and the Google Play Store.
