Description

Sliders is a simple futuristic sports game that isn't a world away from Marble Madness. You control a ball over a futuristic landscape, the idea being to find the puck that's hidden somewhere in the level and "herd" it back to your starting point. Sounds simple enough, except for one thing; there's another player (either computer or human) trying to do the same thing.

This results in incredibly hectic gameplay. Add this to the fact that sometimes you're negatively charged to the puck (and thus kick it away) or positively charged (so the puck sticks to you) and you're in for a crazy time!

Trivia

Sliders on Atari ST supported also the Atari STE multimedia capability. Thanks to the new "Blitter" chip, Sliders on Atari STE got smoother scrolling and sprites support due to this hardware improvement. The software detected on which Atari version the game was running and allowed or not the use of the "Blitter". The audio stuff got also some nice additions as well when running on Atari STE. Of course, the content of the game was identical on Atari ST and Atari STE.
