On the hunt, possibly for socks
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.
