Editors' review

We are longtime lovers of the original Snood, so we were excited to see this updated version with a new twist. The sleeker Snood Slide for Windows has a different objective but is still lots of fun.

Fans of the game Chuzzle will think that Snood Slide looks awfully familiar, and there are plenty of similarities. In Snood Slide, the pieces are arranged in grids with movable rows and columns. Users slide the rows and columns to align three or more of the same pieces, which then disappear and turn their spaces on the board gold. New pieces slide down from the top, and obstacles like numbskulls, which can't be matched, add an extra challenge. Users advance to the next level once they have turned the entire board gold. The program offers two styles of play, Journey and Gauntlet; the latter is speed-based, with more numbskulls appearing at a steady rate. Although the program is intuitive for the most part, and the included Read Me file explains the basic concept of the game, we would have appreciated a little more detailed description of all of the game's characteristics. That's also part of the fun, though; users are never quite sure what they're going to encounter as they play. Overall, this version of Snood is at least as addictive as the original.

Snood Slide for Windows has a 60-minute trial period, which is ample time to get acquainted with it. The program installs politely but leaves a folder behind upon removal. We recommend this program to all users.

    "Self-paced random puzzles require assorted strategies"

    November 09, 2012   |   By garyperlman

    Version: Snood Slide for Windows 2.0

    Pros

    Self-paced, although there are records for time, and a real-time game.
    Random things happen, so you never know if you'll succeed.
    Rare "Second Chance" lets you recover from disaster.
    On startup, picks up where you left off.

    Cons

    Many puzzle sequences are very boring, not challenging.
    Tedious to start a new game to find an interesting one.
    Can be addictive.

    Summary

    Move cells to match 3+ to make them disappear and get marked. Match two groups at once and incur no penalty. With too many penalties, unmatchable numskulls fill cells, which can only be removed by matching adjacent cells. Mark the whole puzzle to move on. Challenging puzzles have single lines which are hard to match, but strategies do exist.

    "Snood Slide - Chuzzle meets Bejeweled's Alchemy"

    July 25, 2012   |   By TuxOnToilet

    Version: Snood Slide for Windows 2.0

    Pros

    A twist on Chuzzle PopCap never bothered to make

    Cons

    Can't pay online, and pricing stings.
    Some features like Lock are gone.

    Summary

    Take Snoods, put them on a Chuzzle grid, add the Alchemy rule from Bejeweled mode of the same name, remove Lock and most power-ups, remove most modes... and here it is!
