I guess the title of the game is clear enough to know what exactly to expect from this mobile app. Sandwich by PopCore Games is a very simple yet oddly satisfying sandwich-stacking game that will take you to a series of easy and surprisingly tricky levels with a varying range of difficulty. The main objective in this game is simple, stack all the ingredients together and make the best-tasting sandwich. Interestingly, the tricky part of the game is to carefully stack the ingredients while making sure that they are all placed between the two sandwich loaves. If you ate looking for a simple and light game to keep your boredom away, Sandwich is definitely a perfect fit.
The mechanics for Sandwich are very simple and easily manageable. It is so simple that even younger players can understand even without any tutorials. As mentioned above, the main objective is to make a sandwich. You do so, by simply stacking all the ingredients together. As soon as the game begins, it prompts you right away to a simple white screen filled with all the sandwich ingredients and the two loaves. The ingredients and the loaves are randomly and adjacently arranged on the screen.
Simply swipe the ingredient to stack it to another ingredient that is adjacently positioned to it. You can swipe either left or right but make sure to visualize the arrangement carefully before making any moves because your previous moves can no longer be undone. If you left an ingredient or you wrongfully stack the loaves, the game will come to a quick end and you have no other option but to start the same level back from the very beginning until you manage to make it through.
Unlock More Ingredients
Who would have thought that making a Sandwich can end up in such an epic and oddly-satisfying mobile game? Anyway, the best part of Sandwich is the growing number of ingredients. Unlike other games that will ask you to collect gems or coins to buy and unlock other skins, this game has a simple and surprisingly effective approach. In order to unlock a new ingredient, you must successfully reach certain levels. Cleverly enough, this will encourage the players to play the game more.
Unlocking new ingredient doesn’t really affect the game much. It doesn’t affect the level of difficulty or at any point affects your performance. The only good thing about the new ingredients is the fact that it makes the visual even more appealing. It is also very rewarding to see a new ingredient on the list. Interestingly, from time to time, the game will give you an option to immediately unlock the next ingredient without the need of reaching a certain level. You simply need to watch a rewarded video to unlock the next ingredient.
Sandwich is a very straightforward game. It doesn’t have any complex rules and the levels are somehow repetitive. Despite the simplicity, it hard to argue that the game is oddly-satisfying. In fact, you can easily reach up to level 100 or more in one sitting without you realizing how much time you have spent to it. Of course, there are notable downsides as well. This game could have been more engaging if they added a scoring system. They could have added a time limit per level to make the game even more challenging and thrilling at the same time.
The overwhelming ads were also few of the notable downsides of Sandwich. Although it doesn’t really show up after every level which is a good thing, otherwise, the game will become even more annoying. On a positive side, Sandwich works perfectly fine even without an Internet connection and it doesn’t consume much of your phone storage either.
If you are looking for a game that you can always play when you get bored without the need of committing yourself too much, Sandwich is absolutely a perfect fit. It is light, simple and oddly-satisfying as well. It doesn’t consume much of your phone storage and most of all, it doesn’t require an Internet connection to progress. The game is also adorned with simple yet visually stunning details which makes it even more engaging. Currently, the game is available for both Android and iOS devices and you can download Sandwich for free. Have fun!
