UPDATE: A recent update has added Game Center support, giving Stoopid Sandwich a bit more shelf-life as you compete against others around the world for high scores and as such this eliminates one of the concerns highlighted below.

Stoopid Sandwich by London-based developers NoodlFroot started out as more of a prototype for another concept they're working on, but after having so much fun with something this simple they decided to share it with the world. And I have to say I'm glad they did; it may not feature a lot of deep content, but the combination of its pickup and play style with the whacky concept manages to sink its claws in and all of a sudden you've eaten up your spare time.

Your aim is to create a 'Stoopid Sandwich', a tower of random ingredients smashed between irregular chunks of bread in order to create a monstrously tall and delicious treat. All you have to do to contribute to the sandwich is draw in the area provided, creating the next slice of bread to be used. Players will have to take in to account the ingredient that has come before and the one that's about to come up and should they create their slices poorly the game will end, often with the food-laden tower crashing down to Earth.

This continues as long as you're able to keep things stable and it's a surprisingly fun formula as the irregular shapes provide a constant challenge and small touches like having an unseen audience reacting to your skill keeps the tension high. It's a shame there's little else to do and not being able to compare your scores to others online limits its long-term appeal.

If Stoopid Sandwich is a taste of things to come, it's a delightful snack that whets the appetite for more, however without more to back it up you'll be left drooling and unsatisfied. A fun time-waster, but lacking in any lasting value.
