I doubt you'll be sorry. If ever there's been a game that I would say anyone with an iDevice should get, this would be it; I just can't see how anyone wouldn't find something to like here. Besides, it's a buck, universal, and my best efforts have not (yet) unearthed any IAPs.

this does look like fun, but what type of game is it? just a tower stacker?

Playing: Ski Safari, Polara, Girls Like Robots, Dynamite Jack, Monster Flip, Polymer, Super Mole Escape, Dream of Pixels, Radballs

That's what I want to know. Looks great and has great recommendations so I'm sure to snag this one up quick but have no idea how to play. Is it a sort of fast-paced, frantic type gameplay such as Push Panic? The faster and crazier the gameplay, the better

Now playing: Working my way through the best retro games recently re-relased including Sonic, Raiden Legacy, Blazing Star and more. Keep them coming! And revisiting all Orange Pixel titles...

Game Impressions

While it looks like another Digital Chocolate "Brick Stacker" it really is on a whole other level (much cooler)!

The real basic gameplay is about tossing out, via swiping, random condos so that 3 or more of the same color form a solid unit and convert into a brad new shiny metal condo.

The game, of course, can't leave it at that, oh no. There are 4 monsters in the game conveniently matching the 4 colors of basic condo units. At any given moment 2 will show up (one on each side of the tower) and they're hungry for their same color coded condos). To keep these guys happy you need to feed them their condos without too many off-color condos (which clearly upset their stomachs). Flick any of these guys one of your valuable shiny metal condos and they'll help you out with their special ability for a while (how long depends on the quality of the metal condo with a gold one giving a much better effect than say a bronze one).

While all of this is going on there is a bit of a Jenga aspect as well where you need to be careful not to let the tower topple over. While you have no control over how the condos are stacked, you can at least try to swipe out the ones that could screw up its balance.

5/5
