It’s easy to get tired of all the free-to-play puzzlers on the App Store, so when a premium game that taxes your brain in all the right ways comes out it’s time to get excited. Slidout is one of those games.
It’s fresh, fantastic and you can pick it up for your iPhone, iPad or Android device right this second.
The game sees you sliding blocks left and right using simple swipe controls. Those easy controls hide a pretty complex experience though. You’re aiming to get a bunch of balls to the bottom of the screen, clearing a path by moving the blocks out of the way.
Interestingly, the hand-crafted levels don’t have a single designer. Instead, every member of the team at Vixa built a couple of challenges. That adds a lot of variety to the experience, which is exactly what you want in a premium puzzler.
There are no IAPs here, and no in-game shop either. You pay 99c and you’ve got everything that Slidout has to offer. And there’s a lot. You’ll need to grab keys, avoid obstacles and think a few moves ahead.
On top of that, you can replay levels you’ve finished in different ways. There isn’t just a single solution to the challenges, so you can experiment to discover different strategies.
You don’t need to worry about time pressures or things getting frantic, either. Slidout is a zen-style puzzler that lets you take as much time as you like over its tricky conundrums. It’s relaxing, charming and keeps you on your toes by making you think in new and innovative ways.
All sounds pretty darn good, right? Slidout is available right now from the Google Play Store (and the App Store). For less than a dollar you can pick up an intriguing and challenging puzzler that’s going to keep you entertained for hours.
