There are tons of iPhone games out there with complicated rules, levels, and moves to learn. One game, called Slide, is making learning how to play much easier by having you do something you already know how to do: unlock your phone.
Playing off the slide to unlock feature on the iPhone, Slide involves doing just that, sliding your finger across the screen in the same way you might unlock your phone. The difference in Slide’s case, however, is that you have more unlock bars than just one, and the bars will reappear after they’ve been slid open, often at a ferocious pace.
The game has four different modes: classic, twist, doubles, and revenge. As you play you slide unlock bars from right to left and left to right, and the game keeps track of how long you’ve survived in the game, how many times you’ve successfully slid to unlock, and the rate of time between each unlock. All those factors are combined together into a score.
Scores can be shared on Facebook and Twitter. The game also has OpenFeint and Game Center support, so you can compete with friends and keep track of how you’re doing against your friends on leaderboards.
While on the surface Slide may seem simple, the longer you play the game the faster the slides start to appear and the more difficult the game becomes. The result is a highly addictive game you’re likely have a bit of trouble putting down.
