  • Summary: Slydris is a unique and engaging puzzle game with a simple premise but deceptively deep gameplay:* Slide and drop blocks to create full lines of blocks. * Create combos of falling blocks and clearing lines to fill up your bomb meter faster. * Create a row of a single color for a colorSlydris is a unique and engaging puzzle game with a simple premise but deceptively deep gameplay:* Slide and drop blocks to create full lines of blocks. * Create combos of falling blocks and clearing lines to fill up your bomb meter faster. * Create a row of a single color for a color burster. * Other special blocks (Shatter, Upcoming, Locked, and Magnet) add gameplay variety and challenge.The three modes are Infinite Mode, Zen Mode, and Survival Mode:* In Infinite Mode, a new set of blocks drops after every move you make, so take as much time as you want. Clear 25 lines to move onto the next level.* Zen Mode functions similarly to Infinite Mode, but the difficulty is more dynamic, there are no achievements or scores to worry about, and your game will never end (in Infinite Mode, the game ends if the stack reaches the top row).* In Survival Mode, you have 10 seconds to make as many moves as you can to clear the lines of blocks, then a barrage of blocks will drop, and the cycle begins again. Quick thinking and nimble fingers are required to do well.Slydris is a highly polished and customizable puzzle game for all ages. Select from 3 music tracks and dark or light backgrounds.Slydris supports Game Center Achievements and Leaderboards, iPad Retina Display, and iCloud saving. Expand

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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.
