Sand Slides Game App For iPhone - Tips, Hints & Sandslides Cheats

Updated on February 16, 2011


Looking for Sand Slides game app tips, hints and cheats? Then you are in the right place. In this article we will review the new iPhone and iPad game known as Sand Slides. We will also see if we can find any helpful tips and hints for Sand Slides and also see if there are any Sand Slides cheats available. Basically, this will tell you everything you need to know about this new game app for the iPhone.

Sand Slides is a new app for the iPhone. This is an unusual sort of puzzle game that will soon have you addicted. Currently a free download on the app store, sand slides has shot to the top of the download charts. Although this is a very simple game it is very well thought out and it is quite a challenge. If you want a free game that will keep you occupied for a few hours then this one may well be for you.

Sand Slides Game


When you open the app up you are taken to the menu screen. Here you can play the game, view the tutorial, check out the high scores or view some options. The options page allows you to turn off the music, as it soon gets a little repetitive you may want to turn this off. You can also adjust the volume of the effects, it’s handy to keep these on though as they make the game easier to follow. You can also view your achievements here and visit the sand slides website.

One excellent feature of the sand slides app is that it is linked up to game centre. This means you can add your highscores to global leaderboards and also compete with your friends. On the highscores page you can also simply view your own scores. The first thing I would recommend when you open up this game app is to view the tutorial. Although the game is pretty easy to play, it does take a little bit of explaining so you know exactly what you are doing.

Game Play


Here you can choose to play the practice version of the game, this involves no scores, you just play for as long as you like. The main game play games are easy, medium or hard. So choose your level and they you start. You are now presented with a screen, at the top of the screen are three glass containers. These will fill with sand. At the bottom of the screen there are three coloured funnels. The idea is to get the correct colour of sand into the correct funnel. This accumulates points. At the top of the screen there is your grains count, for every grain of sand that goes into the wrong funnel your grain count drops. When it reaches zero it’s game over.

To direct the sand into the correct funnel you simply draw lines to direct the sand. This at first is easy, but soon it becomes difficult when your lines start to cross over. This is where buckets come in, here you can store the sand and wait for the right moment to release it. The best way to understand all this is simply to view the tutorial. You can also pick up lots of bonus points for combos, to do this it’s just a case of having two colours of sand in the correct funnels at the same time. As your sand enters the correct colour of funnel your points will increase.

Tips, Hints & Cheats


There are a few simple tips for sand slides we can look at. The game basically just takes practice. You need to plan ahead and work out exactly where the sand is next going to be falling. Another tip is to make use of buckets, draw a bucket shape to store the sand until it is time to release it. The best tip is that more is less, you don’t want three lines on the screen all the time. If you don’t need a line delete it by double tapping it. If a colour of sand matches the funnel directly below, don’t even bother with a line, just let it drop. Follow a few of these tips and you should get some good high scores.

If you are looking for cheats for sand slides then I am afraid currently there are none available. This is still a new game so it maybe that someone comes up with some cheats, but as of now there are no sand slides cheats available. To be honest you don’t really need cheats to enjoy this game, just practice and get good yourself. If you are looking to get on the global leaderboards then you are really going to have to play for a long time and get very good, there are some very competitive scores on there.

Overall I would have to say that sand slides really is a great fun game. This is one that you can curl up under a blanket and play for hours on end. As far as iPhone and iPad games go it’s a nice easy one that will have you addicted in no time. So if you want something to keep you busy, download this great fun little app.
