Shallow, ad-centric pizza puzzle game quickly gets boring.

While this arcade-esque puzzle game is kind of interesting, it's so simplistic and has so many ads that it quickly becomes dull. In Slices, you have six empty pans and have to fill them with the slices of beautiful New York City-style pizza that appear in the center. Except that each slice is facing one of six ways, and you have to find a slot to fit them in. Sometimes, it mixes things up by giving you two or three connected slices. And if that's all there was to this game, you'd probably play a couple minutes and then go out for a pizza. It's kind of simplistic and shallow. The problem is that while you're playing, there's a stationary banner ad along the bottom. And between rounds, a video ad runs. Also, if you run out of turns and want to keep slinging slices, well, I think you know where this is going (and no, not to buy the ad-free version).

Even the pizzas are problematic; pies are eight slices, not six, and why is one of the pizzas green with black dots? Is that a pesto pizza with black olives? Gross. It's enough to make you say "No, I'm not in the mood for pizza." Which is fitting, because after a couple minutes of Slices, you won't be in the mood for this nonsense either.
