App description: Sock Slider is an addictive pick-up-and-play game that simulates the physics and fun of running and sliding in your socks. The objectives are simple- either run and slide across the floor as far as you can, or see how many times you can slide into the circle.

Controls / Orientation Support:

You play by dragging your finger to run and letting go to slide (make sure not to run past the "fault" line). Sock Slider fully supports iPhone's unique orientation sensing feature and adapts the interface to meet your sock sliding needs. For example, you can use the app in portrait mode sliding using your thumb or in the landscape mode sliding from right-to-left or left-to-right.

Scenario / Levels:

The game includes 2 challenges: "How far can you slide?" and "Can you slide into the circle?" so depending on your mood you can either let it rip, or go for finesse and see how many times you can slide into a circle before missing.

Both challenges come with 4 levels (3 of which you have to play to unlock). In addition, each level has its own online score board so you can see how you compare against everyone else. Get ready to dominate the world sock sliding scene.

Special Features:

[a] Choose your socks. Out-of-the box Sock Slider comes with 4 different colors of socks. Just click on the laundry basket and choose your favorite socks. Additionally there are 2 locked sock colors that you can unlock after you solve the Hard level of each challenge.

[b] Compete world wide with online score boards. There is a score board for each level. The score boards will store the highest score you submit each day (you can submit as many times as you like). Therefore, you can compete either for the high score of the day or for the highest score of all time.

[c] Share with your friends. Sock Slider provides as simple way to share the game with friends using either email or Facebook with a single tap.


Obviously, you gotta check this game out, besides it's FREE.

Especially if you're into other pick up and play games or cartoon-based games like Touch Hockey, Cartoon Wars, Tap Tap Revenge, Deer Hunter, Sharp Shooter, Beer Pong, Rollercoaster, Sheep Launcher etc..you get the idea.. this game is for you.

i've done this a bunch too...tho's it's even more fun with shoes when there's just a thin layer of ice on the ground

...although, the sliding with socks thing can be dangerous...a friend of mine's sister did this at a sleepover and fell backwards and hit her head...they had to take her to the hospital and now her short term memory has been permanently affected
