Slydris (4/5 stars, all ages) is today’s Amazon Free App of the Day. It’s sort of like Tetris, but instead of positioning falling blocks to clear levels you slide blocks that have already fallen to clear levels. From Amazon:
The critically-acclaimed puzzle game makes its way to the Kindle Fire! 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 color burster.
*** Other special blocks (Shatter, Upcoming, Locked, and Magnet) add gameplay variety and challenge.
This trailer was created to promote Slydris for iPad, but the game works just the same on the Kindle Fire:
THREE FANTASTIC MODES: Infinite Mode, Zen Mode, and Survival Mode:
*** INFINITE: 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: 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.
*** SURVIVAL: 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.
Select from 3 music tracks and dark or light backgrounds.
