Sandwich! Game App Review
What is Sandwich!?
As the name implies, this game is all about sandwiches. Or rather, making sandwiches. Thankfully, there’s a lot more to that than it sounds, as this is actually a puzzle game. The many sandwich ingredients are laid out in front of you, in a fashion very similar to a grid or a crossword puzzle. It’s up to you to fold all of the ingredients on top of each other in the proper order, making the perfect sandwich. As you can imagine, this process becomes gradually more difficult as you progress in levels. In fact, you can unlock up to forty ingredients in the game, providing a great variety in the puzzle making, not to mention a fair amount of difficulty.
Should you get Sandwich!?
By the very nature of this being a puzzle game, it’s naturally going to be a bit more thought intensive than some simpler apps, especially as you get further along in the levels. So if you’re looking for a game where you don’t have to strain your brain cells beyond the minimum, it’s probably not a good pick. But if you are the type of person that enjoys puzzles, it goes without saying that you would probably like the game. That said, it’s far from the most challenging puzzle game out there; it has a nice balance between difficulty and entertainment. So if you’re a hardcore, super challenging puzzle enthusiast, then it’s probably still not a good choice.
The aforementioned number of ingredients to unlock means there is a fair amount of variety to be had as you progress through the game, but it never reaches mind-boggling levels of difficulty that will stomp your thought process for an hour or more. That might be a selling point for some, and a disappointment for others. It’s also worth noting that the game has no distinguishable ‘goal’ to achieve in the grand scheme of things. There is no final level. The levels just go on indefinitely. For those that desire a sense of achievement in their games, there isn’t really much here other than the accomplishment in clearing a level itself. And of course, this is a free to play game, which means there are a lot of ads to put up with.
-A good balance between challenge and easy fun in regards to puzzle difficulty
-Many ingredients provide needed variety to puzzles as you progress levels
-No overarching goal to achieve; game goes on forever
-Lots of ads because it’s a free to play game
