Slide Stars is actually not all that bad, it’s just hard as nails. The gameplay sees you precariously balancing your rider, and depending on whether you’re piloting an oversized coin or a baby turtle, every vehicle controls slightly differently. The social media superstars each have different specialties, whether it’s gaming, fashion, or travel, and thus can inexplicably open up different paths in the stages, unlocking secrets and shortcuts along the way.
I feel like I’ve typed more about Slide Stars than I probably should have. It’s a short-lived clunky game that is priced at a whopping 40 bucks. No way would I pay that for this game. This is an eight dollar experience at best. While it’s never broken, it is never something I found myself wanting to complete. In fact, I don’t see the proper audience for this at all. Obviously someone younger than me, but good luck getting a kid to play this one for longer than about 10 minutes.
I turned 30 this year so maybe I’m just out of touch with what the youngins want. I don’t know. What I do know is that selling an ad for social media influencers under the guise of feel good, earth friendly, “seize the day” quotes and cheesy bios to young consumers in a half-baked game for $40 is an outright unethical move that undermines every ounce of Slide Stars attempted positivity.
