Water slides have always been the rage for people of all ages, and we don’t think that’s going to change anytime soon. After all, these fun slides allow you to go at incredible speeds while doing twists and turns.
It may be impossible to visit water parks right now due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but thanks to Triangle Studios’ Slide Stars, you can now enjoy some water slide action even while you’re in the safety of your own home.
Slide Stars considers itself to be the “first water racing adventure” game, and what makes it even more interesting is the fact that the game’s playable characters are some of the “world’s biggest international social media stars.”
Once you finally choose one influencer from the 20+ characters on the roster, you can go ahead and start doing astounding and awe-inspiring moves on the slide. If you’re interested in this kind of game, then you’re in luck because Slide Stars is already out on the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
Slide Stars definitely brings an all-new concept to the platformer genre, giving it an edge among the rest. If you want a better understanding of Slide Stars and its gameplay, the official PlayStation YouTube channel released the announcement trailer for the game recently and you can watch it above.
There’s a variety of courses for you to choose from, so the chances of you getting bored are pretty slim. Plus, each course has unique designs, structures, and colors that make each different from the rest.
You might think that Slide Stars won’t be challenging, but you couldn’t be more wrong. Each course is full of obstacles that come in different shapes and sizes, and you’ll have to ensure that your character stays balanced throughout the entire level.
After all, it would be pretty boring if Triangle Studios didn’t include a few hurdles here and there. Being able to think and move fast is a requirement if you want to succeed. Asides from being able to choose a character from the roster of social media stars, you are also given the opportunity to choose which floaty you want to use.
Whether you want your character to ride on a flamingo, a banana boat, a coin, or some other uniquely-shaped floaty, the choice is all yours. Going down a water slide has never been this memorable.
Based on the trailer, it’s safe to assume that Triangle Studios wanted to provide the gaming community with something easygoing yet fun. Given the state of the world right now, all of us definitely need something lightweight to help us keep our minds off of the more serious matters.
We all know that going down water slides is meant to be fun, and it’s great that Slide Stars seems to have captured the essence of this activity. The roster of playable characters is pretty varied as well, as you’ll be able to utilize different up-and-coming stars from all over the world.
If you’re looking for a casual game to play during your spare time, then definitely consider Slide Stars.
