iPhone App Review: Topple
This new game is described as:
“Stack and balance a family of mischievous and dysfunctional shapes using multi-touch controls to slide and rotate them into position. Build your way to victory but remember to keep your balance by tilting the screen to prevent your teetering tower of blocks from Toppling to their doom.”
It’s a simple game concept that can turn out to be very addicting! It’s kind of like Tetris. You have shapes that fall down and you have to rearrange it in stable way. You can rotate the image using multi-touch controls. Use one finger to hold the shape, use another to rotate. When you’re ready, drop the shape down. The object of the game is to stack the blocks as high as you can, without toppling them over. The most shapes you can drop is 4 per level. Any more, and the game is over. Tile the iPhone/iPod touch to help balance out the shapes and reach your goal! Keep an eye on your blocks’ facial expressions to plan your next move.
Let me know if you enjoy this. I really enjoy games that make use of the accelerometer! Go buy it now. (iTunes Link)
