Slap the Rocks on Xbox, PlayStation and Nintendo Switch

slap the rocks game

Block-sliders have been around for years, but that’s not going to stop the development teams out there from attempting to evolve the genre. The latest to give it a go are those at AFIL Games, as they team up with Ratalaika Games and Eastasiasoft to allow Xbox, PlayStation and Switch players the chance to Slap the Rocks. 

Slap the Rocks is available now on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5 and Nintendo Switch, working a casual puzzle angle that will get your brain in a bit of a twist. It’s priced at £4.19 (with a 20% launch discount dropping that down a little) and combines pixel art visuals, block-sliding ideas and medieval cues as one. 

Thirty levels of sliding fun await those looking to test their minds, as you literally slap a ton of rocks around the stages which are placed in front of you. Hit them hard enough, navigating the mazes within and you’ll be well rewards – with another stage with more mind-bending mechanics. 

Smacking rocks into holes shouldn’t be fun, but we reckon Slap the Rocks has something that is quite possibly worthy of your time. Our full review of how it plays on Xbox Series X|S is coming (and this one is a next-gen optimised title), so keep an eye out for our thoughts. 

Key game features include:

  • Slide stones across maze-like fields to cover pitfalls!
  • Flee from stumps and slice through bushes.
  • Claim treasure chests as your reward for solving each level!
  • Traverse 30 challenging stages of varied difficulty.
  • Retry any puzzle and discover multiple solutions!

Should you wish to grab the download, the Xbox Store will cover what you need for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. It’s also on PS4, PS5 and Nintendo Switch

Game Description:

Get medieval on some stones in a puzzling quest of epic pixel art proportions! Block-sliding brain teasers get a fantasy adventure twist in Slap the Rocks, a retro puzzler where you play a medieval treasure hunter with a sword and a penchant for knocking stones around! Presented in top-down pixel art style, Slap the Rocks features 30 levels to explore, each with a maze of stones, bushes and stumps, where your objective is to hit and slide the white rocks into holes to create a path to reach a treasure chest! To clear each stage, you’ll need to slice through bushes and carefully navigate the terrain. Position yourself next to a stone and slap it with your blade to make it slide across the field, where it will stop as it collides with rock walls or other obstacles. Moving the stones in straight lines, you will eventually line up with pitfalls in the ground and fill them with the fallen stone. Can you overcome the increasingly tricky levels on your way to victory and fortune?

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S - mostly with the brilliant indie scene that has come to the fore.
