Slide is a fast reaction game from developer The Falco Initiative. The objective of the game is to “unlock” the sliders that appear as fast as you can without letting the entire screen lock. The main game itself will be really familiar to anyone who owns any type of i-device. Basically the screen fills up with “slide to unlock” sliders and you must slide them to get them off the screen. There are 5 rows that the sliders can appear on, which they do randomly. You slide them like you would to unlock your phone to clear them from the screen. As you do this, more and more sliders will appear. As you progress, the sliders will appear more frequently so you’ll have to keep on your toes to remove them quickly. If you’re not fast enough, the sliders will overrun the screen and it’ll be game over if that happens.
There are 4 game modes available for you to play. They are all pretty much the same, just small variations of each other. In Classic mode, sliders appear one at a time and speed up over time. In Twist mode, it’s just like Classic but you’ll need to deal with sliders that go left and right. In Doubles mode, 2 sliders can appear simultaneously while in Revenge mode, 2 sliders can appear from either direction. Obviously this is the hardest mode to play.
There really isn’t too much to Slide and it’s very simple to pick up and play since using the “slide to unlock” feature is something all iPhone users know how to do. For those who like games like this, Slide really challenges your hand-eye coordination and it’s fun to see how high of a score you can get. I also like the added challenge of unlocking achievements in the game. The game is also free which is a big plus, though ads do show up after each completed game. Nothing major though and doesn’t get in the way of the main game.
You do it all the time, but have you mastered it?
A simple yet addictive game which tests your speed and unlocking prowess. Play online against thousands of the world’s best iPhone users in four challenging game modes to determine who is the slider to rule them all.
