  • Summary: A minimal block puzzle game from the creator of Slydris and CRUSH! SideSwype is an elegant and unique combination of 4-way block sliding and match-3 gameplay wrapped in a stunning audio-visual package. Swype your finger across the screen to send the blocks sliding to one of the 4 sides of the grid. Match 3 or more in a row to destroy the blocks. Special 4 and 5 blocks appear on occasion, requiring larger matches and rewarding you with special Diamond and Bomb blocks in return. With gameplay that is easy to learn and hard to master, along with smooth touch controls and player-controlled pacing, SideSwype is the perfect mobile puzzle game. Play as fast or as slow as you want, and take a break to come back later without missing a beat.

    SideSwype is a puzzler that takes inspiration from Threes, but becomes its own incredibly fun game.

    SideSwype is a well designed game that is easy to play, while challenging you making it worth picking up.

    Ultimately, however, as a puzzle game fan, I find SideSwype scratches a very similar itch to Threes!, but doesn't do it quite so satisfactorily.

    A tactile combination of Threes! and match-three puzzler gameplay, SideSwype is perhaps a little too streamlined for its own good.

    SideSwype is a much-welcomed new perspective on a style of game that has quickly become over-saturated in the app store with me-too copycats.
