Hey Everyone!

As you know, we announced our newest game, Slider Scouts. It will be our first Free App, and will work on both tablets and phones.

For this week, we wanted to touch upon the goals in Slider Scouts. Here at Flipline Studios, we really love making games that you can play forever.  This can be seen in Papa’s Gamerias, Jacksmith, and even Steak & Jake. Like those games, we developed Slider Scouts with that same idea in mind. Because an endless game naturally has no finite “end”, we incorporate many different goals into these games.

With Slider Scouts, we have a variety of long-term and short-term goals to work towards. Some goals within the game are leveling-up, collecting furniture, earning Merit Badges and unlocking Scouts. There are 75 Scouts that can be unlock by either reaching a certain rank or offering coins to the Great Slider Shrine. However, there are 5 super-rare Scouts that can only be unlocked by earning Scout Stars, giving you a nice long-term goal to work towards.

As you play Slider Scouts, you slowly earn points to level up your Rank and unlock all sorts of cool things. But what you may not know is that those points also increase your Scout’s star meter…

As your Scout travels and accumulates points, their star meter fills, allowing you to earn up to 3 stars for each Scout. Your total Scout Stars can be seen when you enter the Scout Lodge in the upper right hand corner of the screen. When you earn enough Scout Stars, a Rare Scout will be awarded to you with great fanfare.

Now that is a long term goal, however, we also have another short-term goal we have yet to touch upon… Treasure Chests!!!

As you start each adventure, you will slide your way through many rooms. As you do, you will undoubtedly stumble upon new areas and obstacles to overcome. The farther down the winding path you travel, the more challenging it becomes. If you happen to make it far enough in a single outing, you may come across a giant treasure chest. These could be filled with coins stashed away by a long-gone explorer, or maybe some lost cargo containing fine furniture from across the land. The only way you’ll know is to open the chest by sliding into it!

We can’t wait for you to play Slider Scouts!!!

Hey Everyone!

As you know, we announced our newest game, Slider Scouts. It will be our first Free App, and will work on both tablets and phones. You always start the game outside of the lodge. In previous posts, we have shown you all the things you can do when you slide right, left, and up. Now, all that is left is to slide down!

On a normal outing, you’ll see two different count-down placards. The one above you will count down the amount of coins you need before the Slider Shrine awakens. However, the one below will count down the time before a special visitor arrives at the camp. In this example, you have 30 seconds before she arrives.

When the time is up, the lower gate will open, and your friend, Prizella, will be waiting for you. Simply slide your scout down to greet her, and Prizella will present you with a gift. Here, she has managed to bring you a giant pink refrigerator for your Scout Lodge. NICE!!!

 

          

Good news, Prizella is not the only visitor you’ll see at camp! Once in awhile, your good friend Addie will show up to give you a chance to earn some extra coins.

When Addie shows up, you can slide down to great him. From there, he will show you one of his many colorful Advertisements, and in exchange, he will give you a bag of coins for your patience. But don’t worry, Addie’s feelings wont be hurt if you don’t have time to greet him, he totally understands.

Stay tuned for more sneak peeks of Slider Scouts!

Sneak Peek: Slide Up!

Hey Everyone!

As you know, we announced our newest game, Slider Scouts. It will be our first Free App, and will work on both tablets and phones. So far, we have shown you what happens when you slide left and slide right. But you can also slide up too!

We will start outside the lodge, just as you normally do in the game. However, this time you have collected enough coins to awaken the Great Slider Shrine. When this happens, the gate clears and the Slider Shrine’s eyes are open and ablaze.

When this happens, simply slide your Slider Scout up towards the shrine. After offering up your collected coins, the Slider Shrine will be awash in a magical blue aura.

 

          

Once that process is complete, the statue’s stone mouth will open sending tremors across the campgrounds.  Inside will be a new Scout who will surely be thankful for its mystical rescue.

So now you know there are several ways to earn new Scouts. First, you can unlock them as you level up. Secondly, you can use the Slider Shrine for a chance to unlock a new Scout. All the while, you can cut to the chase, and buy them directly in the Scout Lodge. So everything in the game can be earned for free, but if you are in a rush, you can use in-app purchases. Pretty cool, eh!

Also coins that you use at the Shrine can be earned in several ways, like collecting them on your adventure, earning a bag of coins at designated Ranks, and other ways that we will discuss next week.

Stay tuned for more sneak peeks of Slider Scouts!

Sneak Peek: Slide Left!

Hey Everyone!

As you know, we announced our newest game, Slider Scouts. It will be our first Free App, and will work on both tablets and phones. Last week we showed you what happens when you slide right, so this week we will be sliding left!

We will start outside the lodge, just as you normally do in the game.

From there, you will simply slide your slider to the left to go inside the Scout Lodge. In the first room, you’ll notice several things. All playable Scouts will appear in the room. Simply click on the available Scout to start playing as them. The bottom of the screen shows the five possible scouts in the room. Some of them are playable (blue button), currently in use (grey button), unlocked at a certain rank, or can be purchased directly (green button). At the top of the first room is your Merit Badge display case. Just swipe your slider up in this room to view your badges.

 

In the display case you will see your current side quest along with any other merit badges you have earned while playing. When you start your adventure, you will be assigned a side quest which will pop up at the bottom of the screen. After you complete the quest, you will earn a merit badge and a reward. Then, after a period of time, you will be assigned a new side quest.

           

Let’s go back to the Scout Lodge. There are many many rooms in the lodge that are filled with potential Slider Scouts to unlock. Each room is fully customizeable by clicking on the “house” button at the top of the screen. Here you can change the color of the walls, trim, and flooring. You can also scroll through an inventory of furniture that you have earned.

 

Yes… FURNITURE! As you play the game, you will unlock furniture in various ways that you can use to decorate your rooms. Once you have fully decked out your room, you’ll be ready for the Scouts to party!

 

Stay tuned for more sneak peeks of Slider Scouts!
