Sly young blocks

It's strange that there are so few games on the App Store that play around with the Tetris template. We've got match-three puzzlers coming out of our ears, and yet the most recognisable puzzler of all time sits relatively unmolested.
Enter Radiangames, which has taken the line-breaking basics of Nintendo's Russian legend and shaken them up a bit. The end result is an intriguing, entertaining, and remarkably clever puzzler that makes you think in straight lines again.

Unlike Tetris, Slydris doesn't involve steering single blocks falling down the screen and trying to arrange them into solid lines. Instead it sees you sliding blocks that are already settled on the screen, trying to fit them together in horizontal lines to make space and earn points.
An engaging, neon-bright puzzler, Slydris plays with the building blocks of the best and comes up with something pretty damn good
