5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly fun! November 16, 2012
Verified Purchase
I wasn't impressed much by the initial premise, but I sure was wrong! Your purpose is to slice the ice into as small of a piece as possible in order to gather ice for a drink. Sounds simple, right? Well, you have to do it while keeping moving penguins together as a group and leaving them unharmed. You can slice the ice however you want to, so long as you don't violate the aforementioned. If you're experiencing difficulty, there are power-ups that you can use that may assist you. These must be purchased by coins when you run out, which you can earn as you progress through the game. Some tips that might not be readily noticeable:

- Your line of slicing will remain there for a few seconds if you don't lift your finger, so you can draw the line that you want and wait for all of the penguins to cross it before letting go.
- You can tap on penguins to change their direction, which may help if they're bouncing around in an area you don't want them to.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, could be fun in short bursts November 16, 2012
By Sofie

Ok, permissions are not horrendous, there are just 2...keep your phone awake, and a hardware control in order to vibrate.

The game consists of 2 days, 7 levels on the first one, and 4 on the second one. Each level introduces a new animal...or bad guy, and each level must be played 15 times. You get a new ice shape each of the 15 times.

You get coins for each time you cut an ice shape. The coins can be used to purchase a new item that I think you can use to help you. You can't purchase coins (which I think is a smart idea).

You can turn off the music and there is a button to end the game as well. Overall, not bad.

Game play:
The king wants more ice in his drink and sends you, a penguin, out to cut more ice. You must slice all the way across the ice and try not to separate penguin families. Don't slice the penguins! You can cut in shapes but not cross your cuts. The game involves patience as you many times have to wait for the penguins to get out of the way and gather on one end of the ice so you can cut off as big chunk as possible.

Soon you have to slice the ice to separate the angry seals from the poor penguins. That becomes another challenge plus not cutting the penguins and keeping them together.

What I like:
This is a cute concept but it wears on your nerves waiting for the penguins to clear the ice with their seemingly random movements. I like the concept but normally don't have the time to sit and watch the screen waiting for the penguins to clump together.

The graphics are simple but well done.

What I don't like:
This is a nice game concept but after a while you get tired of waiting for the penguins to clear a section of the ice. Sitting there and waiting for minutes to get an opening to slice the ice is not much fun.

Summary:
The game starts off as fun but soon you have a lot of penguins who have no intention of getting together on one part of the ice so you can cut it. Finally your patience wears thin and you would just rather slice penguins than slice the ice.

The game is good for a few levels at a time but not a continuous playing game experience as your frustration with the penguins takes over. I rate it a 3 star game.

Size: Uncompressed the app is 9.7 MB.

5.0 out of 5 stars simple fun puzzle game November 16, 2012
By Rhev
Verified Purchase
Reminding me of a game called qix from the 80s this game follows a tried and true puzzle trope: split up the play area into smaller sections while trapping the whozits on one side.

Slide ice makes this tested fomula work by using light music and sounds combined with touch controls that are responsive. The cartoony graphics are cute and crisp, but nothing groundbreaking.

I'd say that this game is worth a dollar or two for certain, but you should grab this one for sure while its a FAOTD.

3.0 out of 5 stars waiting November 16, 2012
By Me
Verified Purchase
It's kinds of like the old game Qix. The difference is that instead of chopping lots of lines to get it smaller and smaller, you are encouraged to try to finish the game in 1 slice. That means you usually just sit there waiting and waiting and waiting until that one perfect slice comes. That's boring, not challenging.

2.0 out of 5 stars not the best November 16, 2012
Verified Purchase
The penguins are adorable, but the game...not so much. Like others have said, the game gets boring pretty quickly because you spend a ridiculous amount of time waiting for the penguins to get to the same side of the ice.

I also had a little trouble getting the ice to respond to my slices once in a while. I played the whole 1st day. The game has days you play through. I gave it a fair chance, but I think this one will be deleted. I don't think even the grandkids will like this one because they will be bored waiting on the penguins.

2.0 out of 5 stars I tried to like it November 16, 2012

No instructions no control over how the penguin moves other than tap them which seems to confuse them for a second. Best part about this game is taking it off your phone, no level of difficulty, app nrexzworh

I am totally addicted to this game. It seems really easy, at first, but gets harder as you go! You really need to think about the moves that you are going to make.
