On the hunt, pos­si­bly for socks

The Washington Post Sunday - - TECHNOLOGY & INNOVATION - — Hay­ley Tsukayama

Are you a fan of ex­plor­ing? Then you’ll like Land Slid­ers. which of­fers up a wacky world to ex­plore with the glid­ing swipe of your fin­ger. The game is high on quirk: You start with a roller-skat­ing ex­plorer, but as you play you can un­lock char­ac­ters that in­clude a clothes dryer, an ele­phant and a plate of tacos. You can opt to ei­ther con­trol your char­ac­ters di­rectly or move the ground be­neath their sta­tion­ary feet.

The goal is to col­lect as many items as pos­si­ble while avoid­ing cliff edges, hun­gry bears and other ob­sta­cles. What you’re look­ing for de­pends on your cho­sen char­ac­ter — the dryer hunts for socks, for ex­am­ple. It’s all a lit­tle strange. But it’s also weirdly ad­dic­tive. And you can play for­ever, as long as you stay alive. Free, for iOS de­vices.
