TGWK’s Review of “iSlack” v1.1 (iOS)

iSlack is a casual game from developer Kaida Games. In the game, you play as a disgruntled employee that wants nothing more than to slack off on the job. Why do boring reports and paper work when you can visit sites like Twitter and Facebook all day long on your computer without getting caught. That’s what iSlack is all about. In the game, you must slack off and do as little work as possible to remain happy at your job. Other employees don’t care that you are slacking odd as they’d like to do the same but when the bosses are around, you better make sure you at least look like you are busy.

Playing iSlack is very straight forward. Tap on one of the activities to start slacking off to gain points and keep your happiness meter up. Luckily, you can interrupt tasks by tapping on the work button, just in case the bosses are walking around. You have to be on the look out for the bosses because if they catch you slacking off, its game over. You can recognize the bosses by the hats they wear or the briefcases they carry. Everyone else will just look like a regular stick figures.

Other than that, there is not much more to the game. It’s of the endless type so you basically just keep slacking off for higher scores until you get caught. As a casual game, it’s a good game to just pick up and play when you’re waiting around for something. It does get repetitive after a while but if you play it in short spurts, you’ll likely play it more than you would if you did one long play session.

iSlack is available now in the App Store for $0.99. It is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Requires iOS 3.1.3 or later.
