The king is dead. Long live the king? During Angry Birds’s interminable stay at the top of the iPhone app tree, one wondered if Rovio’s seriously annoyed feathered friends would ever be toppled from their lofty perch.
Well, the answer’s yes.
Lauded for its arcade baseball title Homerun Battle 3D, Korean developer Com2uS released Slice It! onto the App Store on August 31st and since then it’s been slashing its way merrily up Apple’s charts in the UK.
In little under a fortnight, this devilishly simple game, which requires you to slice different shapes and figures into perfect halves, thirds, or eighths, has rocketed to #1 UK Paid App, #1 UK Grossing App, and, most importantly, the #1 Qi recent releases spot.
60 stages of seductive slicing are offered for the time being, though Com2uS promises more levels in the future via App Store updates.
Slice It! is available now for download at 59p / 99c / €0.79.
