"Gesture playing"

Reviewed by / Jan 22, 2013

Sand Slides is an original casual game that makes the most of gesture playing

I personally love how smartphones are unlocking some new and original game dynamics we couldn't have imagined a few years ago. Touchscreen, accelerometer, GPS... all of them are mobile devices built-in features that give more chances for game developing. Sand Slides is one of those games: a casual game that makes the most of touchscreen and gestures to become an original title.

Thus, due to its originality, gameplay needs to be explained. In the play area, there are three Sand Chutes. Different colored Sand will fall into the play area from the Sand Chutes during the game. At the bottom of the play area are Sand Collectors. You must guide the sand into the same color collector by drawing bars and buckets with gestures (sliding). Once the sand has got to the right collector, the "line" must be removed by tapping in order to not disturb next collection of sand. You can draw buckets to keep the sand until it's time to guide it to a collector. Only three slides can be drawn in the play area.

If you collect the wrong colored sand, the grains counter at the top of the play are will decreases. When this counter reaches zero the game is over. There are three different game modes: Practice, Marathon and Challenge. There are specific records halls for all of them as well as lots of achievements to unlock.

The game is set in cute 3D graphics, physics of the sand are quite real. No complaints about touchscreen (which is what really matters in this gestured game). Great game.

Developer's original description available here
A fast paced arcade game like Burning Sand, Falling Sand, World of Sand and other sand game's.

Guide the sand into the right colored chutes, by drawing slides and buckets with your finger, but watch out! You will need to pick up the pace in order to keep on top of the action.

With simple game play rules, Sand Slides is a very unique addictive puzzle game that is simple to pick up but will take some time to master.

    Hard to control, clunky, not fun..... I had high hopes for this one. Save your money.

    This game is garbage, and it makes no sense at all. Total waste of money!
