When you’re looking to kill a bit of time by playing an iPhone or iPad game, sometimes you want something that simple and easy to pick up and play.
Concept and Gameplay:
Right off the bat, Slurf reminded me of Doodle Jump and Flappy Bird.
The goal of the game is to help your character navigate around barriers in his/her path. This is done by sliding your finger across your device’s screen. If you collide with one of the barriers, the game is over.
Getting the hang of Slurf is easy, while mastering the mechanics of the game is a bit more difficult and challenging.
It took me a while before I could reach a score of at least 5, but after about 10 minutes I could easily reach a score of 20 or above.
It’s rare to find an iPhone game that’s both simple and fun to play. However, Slurf managed to do just that. This particular game does just fine without complex storylines, levels, or in game stores.
It really is the perfect game for anyone who just wants to pick up a game and play it.
As you probably guessed, Slurf doesn’t include very many features. One that is included, though, is Game Center integration. This allows you to compete with friends, surf your way up the leaderboard, and send challenges to your friends to see if they can beat your score.
From what I could tell, Slurf doesn’t include achievements as of yet. Achievements would be a great addition to the game, especially for those who love to collect them while playing.
While testing Slurf, I thought of a few additions to the game that might make it even better. This includes being able to change the game background using various themes, which would help to liven up the game a bit more because the current background can get very boring very fast.
Slurf is available to download from the App Store for free and is universally compatible with iPhone and iPad. Even though there are ads at the bottom of the screen, there nonintrusive and can be removed via in-app purchase.
Overall, anyone who is looking for a fun new game to simply pick up and play will definitely enjoy giving Slurf a try.
Slurf requires iOS 6.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
