    An enormous amount of pre-planning is required to set up that perfect chain-reaction, and the intense excitement that accompanies the successful realization of your careful strategizing is both hypnotic and thrilling.

    A departure for the dev team, Slydris is a relaxing yet challenging experience that appeals to a much wider audience than previous dual-stick releases.

    It takes the basic little line clearing puzzle set-up and tweaks it just enough to give it a fresh feeling to make it feel new all over again. Not going to set the world on fire but definitely worth a look for friends of the genre.

    Slydris is fun and challenging, and I'm pretty sure that I'll be playing this for quite some time.

    For a more traditional challenge there is also the survival mode, which drops blocks at timed intervals for a fast-paced challenge. It all plays fantastically on the iPad, and makes for a unique twist puzzle fanatics will enjoy.

    An engaging, neon-bright puzzler, Slydris plays with the building blocks of the best and comes up with something pretty damn good.

    It is difficult to tell what each of the special blocks is designed to do just based on a quick glimpse of what each one is. Suddenly there's some block that's just advancing upward and I have no clue where it is or what it's doing. Some kind of better indicator besides what currently exists would be helpful.
