Slydris 2

In 2012, Slydris took the mobile-gaming world by storm, launching to amazing critical and consumer reviews. It went on to win multiple awards, including GameTrailer.com’s 2012 iOS Game of the Year award, and ranking as Modojo’s #2 iOS Game of the Year, and is Radiangames’ most-played game of all time.

Slydris 2 takes the basic gameplay concept of Slydris–sliding blocks left and right and letting them drop into place to create full rows–and refines it into the ultimate line-clearing endless puzzle game designed specifically for a touch screen. Slydris 2’s design brings more strategy and variety, and better balance to the Slydris formula.

The relentlessly addictive gameplay is enhanced further with fantastic visual effects and earth-shaking sounds. Slydris 2 also features 5 beautiful color schemes to unlock, and 5 mesmerizing music tracks that synchronize with the play field visuals.

Hey casual gamers!  You can never have enough puzzlers apps on you phone to distract you from the endless bore of life.  Dubbed the thinking person’s Tetris, Slydris 2 offers a new way to clear lines and lead yourself to casual leader-board glory!



Gameplay

It might just be me, but I love two toned games. So soothing!

There’s not much of a story to this casual puzzler.  It has a pretty brief tutorial and before you know it, you are trying your best to make as many lines as possible!  The huge difference in Slydris 2 is when a line is made, everything crumbles down.  There are power ups and lock blocks that will bar your path to more lines!

This is highly enjoyable and instantly addictive!

Graphics

puzzlers can be so enjoyable with superb graphics!

The colors stand out while playing this casual app!  Most of the work is making lines, but it find it enjoyable when it’s done in a pleasing way.  Most of the power blocks look and feel visually stunning when interacting with them.  The menus are polished well and seamless.

Music

I love being able to change my settings as I progress!

Time to zone out completely!  When the music is on while playing it takes you away from reality.  This is a headphone on type of casual puzzler.

It’s almost a shame you can’t just idle the game and zone out to some great tunes.



Controls

Watching videos is a great way to double your gems received!

So there’s still a need to move blocks like Tetris.  That’s where the similarity ends.  Every block is movable, but take care!  For every block moved, two more blocks fall down into play.  This continues endlessly until the board is overwhelmed with shapes and the game ends.

These controls gave no issues towards the cause.  It’s good to know that any block can be move no matter if it’s already been played or not.  This can lead to some pretty intense combos!

The Power of in-app Purchases

Combos are visually rewarding!

So, the only purchase seen on Slydris 2 was 2.99 to remove the ads.

If you love this game, do yourself a favor and remove the ads.  They come at the most annoying time!  Since there’s no timer in the game, most moves can sit without penalty.  This leaves this casual app open for apps at any time.

To be fair, it took a while to get one, but when it appear, it threw me off my game!  I suppose you gotta make revenue somehow right?

The Verdict

Slydris 2 is panning out to be my new Tetris addiction on my phone!  It’s easy to enjoy the simplicity of a twist of an old favorite.  You have to appreciate the casual apps that don’t need much talking, but give back tons of action!

Happy Gaming, and as always, keep it casual!
