GAME: Sliding Seas by Mugshot Games Pvt. Ltd

GENRE: Match-3, merge, puzzle

PLATFORMS: Android, iOS

Play retailer is flooded with Match-3 video games comparable to Candy Crush, the place you match three tiles of the identical color to clear them. Then there are merge video games, the place you merge three gadgets of the identical kind to mix and provides a greater merchandise. The similarity between these two genres sound so apparent, but Sliding Seas is among the solely video games I’ve seen to “match and merge” these two genres collectively (pun meant).

The premise of Sliding Seas is {that a} ship has sunk, and its survivors are floating in deep water on a grid-board on the display. You save them by matching three water tiles of the identical color to show them right into a shallower water tile. Match sufficient variety of instances, and the water turns into land the survivors can stand on. Match much more and the survivors have for themselves a shelter. The gameplay is acquainted to current video games, but the puzzle expertise is contemporary. The better part is you’re not restricted by a sure variety of strikes, which makes the puzzle far more stress-free than a typical Candy Crush degree.

Each degree takes 3-4 minutes and after every degree, the survivors arrive on a giant island to start out a brand new life (and abandon their earlier lives utterly!). You’re elected mayor of this island city, so other than saving these individuals, it’s additionally your job to enhance the island. But don’t fear, that hardly wants any effort in your half; just some non-consequential selections about whether or not to construct a hospital or a nightclub. I liked that this recreation retains issues minimal and doesn’t burden you with incomes cash for and tending to the island. It’s targeted on simply the puzzle.

Playing in portrait mode with simply your thumb, the sport feels tight and clear like an app. It doesn’t waste your time with ineffective screens or animations. You are out and in of ranges virtually immediately. The cartoony graphics and the lovable “Yay” sound from the individuals you save are delightfully humorous. But we will’t have an ideal recreation, can we?

While this mixture of two genres is novel, it misses out on one of the best of each. Classic Match-3 video games are immensely satisfying as a result of you may mindlessly clear away candies, as extra cascade and clear on their very own. They additionally reward you for matching longer 5 tiles by giving boosters. Cascading in Sliding Seas is scarce and mindlessly matching 5 tiles, as an alternative of being rewarding, could make you fail the extent as an alternative. Similarly, in contrast to merge video games, merging into higher-level tiles isn’t at all times higher on your recreation.

VERDICT: Sliding Seas combines two of the most well-liked puzzle mechanics to supply contemporary gameplay. It is satisfying to resolve puzzles at a relaxed tempo, however later ranges want some thought and may’t be solved mindlessly. Cartoony graphics are humorous and the person expertise is tight. The interplay with the island is effortlessly minimal however sufficient to make you sit up for increasing it extra. I fee it seven on 10.
