Description: In Slam, you control only one thing – gravity. All you have to do is get the glowing energy crate to the goal – simple enough until we throw in barrels, sliders, switches, magnets, teleporters and a whole host of other mechanics that turn difficult puzzles into near-impossible ones. Take on the challenge of solving over 50 levels – and once you’ve solved them, try the tougher challenge of solving them in the smallest number of moves. If you have a HTC Vive, Slam is also playable in VR – walk around the puzzles to try and understand them better, or for a fun new perspective, use the – and = keys to make yourself bigger or smaller.
With 50 puzzles to solve, I still feel this is worth a look despite its VR shortcomings. It is only £2.79 and I reckon you will easily get your money’s worth from this game for that price. While certainly nothing amazing it will hold your attention for a little while, especially if you enjoy puzzle games anyway.
