Do people still play board games? I know, it all sound a little 1980s, right? So, how about a board game on you iPhone? That's exactly what Magic Cube have done with their latest title Slime Race, a rather charming little game that's based upon the traditional Korean board game known as “Yut”.

As with many board games, the basic idea is that you roll a die (with only five sides in this case) in order to move your pieces, or “Slimes”, with the aim to make them reach the goal before your opponents. Each player can have up to five slimes on their team, which are moved one at a time – land on the red arrows in order to take a shortcut, roll a 4 or 5 to be granted another roll, land on your own Slimes to combine them into a single piece and finally, land on an opponent's Slime to send them all the way back to the start, receiving another roll at the same time.
