Just to forewarn you, the SlotriX iPhone app from Moonrise Games combines the powerful pull of two highly addictive style games. It is highly likely that you will become addicted to the brilliant mix of strategy and chance.
Don’t say we didn’t warn you. Here at The iPhone App Review we strive for full disclosure.
The SlotriX iPhone app brings you all the fun of a slot machine. You tap to spin. The idea is to get three or more blocks of any one color, or arrange golden coins in threes to play a bonus game. Sounds simple enough, right?
You’re just getting started, of course. As you spin the slot machine, blocks fall from the sky to fill up a black area above the slots. If you line up three of a kind that color block is removed from the lines of blocks.
It requires some solid strategy to keep this game moving. Play smart or the top area will fill up with blocks and the game is over.
Bonus moves such as free spins, wild cards and helpful nudges make smart game play easier, however there will always be an element of chance in this app. The block action reminds me of classic match block games such as Bejeweled and Tetris, while the slot machine portion is classic casino fun.
It’s a smart idea, and the result is an extremely addictive SlotriX iPhone app. It took me a minute to sort out the app’s details. It could definitely use a help section. But, once I got it all straightened out, it was smooth sailing.
There’s something inherently fun and endlessly addictive about playing the slots, especially when you’re not losing money doing it. What’s the allure? Chance. When there’s a chance that luck will send you a winning spin, it’s hard not to keep playing.
Combine that powerfully addictive slot-style play with block games and you have SlotriX: a potent combination that’s a lot of fun to play. There’s a reason every third game in iTunes is a block style app. We’re hooked on blocks, and probably always will be.
Oh, and the SlotriX iPhone app integrates with Open Feint for score tracking, achievement, friend interaction and more.
The UI of the SlotriX iPhone app is straightforward and easy to use. It’s a basic touch design. Touch the slots to roll them. Tap a boost to use it. Watch the blocks build on the top of the screen.
There’s a lot happening on the screen, so the SlotriX iPhone app looks a bit busy. But the colorful graphics are suited to the game play and are not unpleasant.
SlotriX will run you $.99 to download from iTunes. That’s an extremely reasonable price for a fun, unique and well-made game like this. Take a chance, spend a buck, and enjoy SlotriX.
SlotriX iPhone app requires iOS 3.1 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
