Released by Haywire Apps, SlideBall is a simple game about keeping a ball aloft for as long as possible. The idea is for players to draw platforms on to the screen, that help keep the ball aloft. Players can draw straight lines or curves (that function as ramps) and the ball will follow the drawn path.
Bombs of various kinds litter the air, and must be avoided, as does the ground. Score is awarded by how long the ball stays in the air. To add a layer of challenge, there’s an energy meter in the upper right hand corner that is used up as lines are drawn. Batteries are also floating in the skies, and managing to have the ball make contact with them will refill the energy meter, for more line drawing.
Players can compete against their own best score, or those of their friends. The ball also has a variety of skins available, though most need to be unlocked. SlideBall Xtreme is available for free from Google Play, with optional IAPs in tow. You can always check out the game in action with the trailer below.
