Description of Slyder Adventures

EditByBSEditor: If video games had existed during Isaac Newton’s lifetime, he might have been inspired to assist with the development of Slyder Adventures, in which you simply rotate the environment with your click wheel (or by turning your fourth generation iPod nano) and let gravity take over. (The headline of this article was taken from Lord George Gordon Byron’s 1821 poem “Don Juan,” in which he says of Newton’s famous epiphany with an apple: “A most natural whirl, called ‘gravitation.’”)

Guide Slyder and three of his friends — Boffo, Sparky, and Unger — through over 150 levels spanning four worlds. In Exploration mode, Play at your own pace, discovering all A Level has to offer. Chomp on food, such as cheese, milkshakes, and ice cream cones, for points. In Timed mode, race against the clock to reach the goal before time runs out, or lose a life. Scarf up cherries for points and look for Clocks that each add two precious seconds.
Simply Engaging

Of course, you won’t Get to the end of each level without having to navigate past a few obstacles. Collect keys that open like-colored doors and press switches that open others, but only for a few seconds. Various types of goo slow you down, while spinners produce a disorienting effect if touched. Steam and fire vents, electrified walls, lava, and robots of various types take away a life if you make contact. You start with three lives and earn a new one every 10,000 points, so it’s important to collect as many Goodies as possible.

In the end, Slyder Adventures proves an adage that’s nearly as old as gravity: The simplest concepts often make the best games. Once you give this one a whirl, we bet you’ll agree.
