This year, the Tokyo Game Show had an indie section that quietly showed off some good stuff, and 4Gamer found a charming little waterpark-themed game slip-sliding into their hearts called Sliding Angel for iOS and Android. In the game, players pick from one of several ladies who have to race down a waterslide, picking up coins and avoiding obstacles such as octopi.
Those coins can then be used to unlock more swimsuits for the girls to wear, new slide toys – ranging from rubber duckies to plastic sharks – and powerup items including a coin-attracting magnet power. You can also use real money to unlock them faster if you prefer. There’s also a mini-game where players have to tap the screen at just the right moment to snap pictures of their lovely lasses. For a indie, smartphone game, it looks very well put together.
The game is out now on iOS and Android in Japan.
