Stackus, new stacking game.

Stackus $.99. (cannot get link to work)

Looks like a polished version of a balancing game like Harmony.

Says it has 50 levels and a weight system (lighter colored blocks are lighter?)

Stackus - $0.99 - 9.4 MB

It looks very polished.

Stackus.
Homostackus, man the stacker.

Game Features:

• Stack blocks, keeping them in balance.
• and, enjoy well-designed 50 stages.
• Basically, you will clear the game if you move all the color blocks in the left side to the other side.
• You win only if
• All the blocks in the left are removed onto the right stage.
and
• The stacks of the blocks should stay in balance during given time (just a few seconds).
• You fail if
• Any of blocks slips off the stage.

Blocks with different shapes and weights

• Three shapes: triangle, square and circle
• The darker the color is, the heavier the block is. The weight of a block is not depending on the difference of colors but depending on the luminosity of the color.
• Compatible with iPhone OS 3.0

How to play

• Pick up a block from the left stage.
• Drag and release the block anywhere in the right stage, even possible to put in a crack between other blocks.
• In the right stage, no further chance to move it again.

Stage Preview

• Check the stage previews to get the glimpse of the challenges.

Meet the Five Challengers: Monkey, Yuki, Mason, Gerry, and the one behind the veil

• Monkey – a very clever challenger with a good sense of physics, having succeeded to frustrate a great number of humans with the various arrangements of blocks.
• Yuki – a small girl cute and smart. She loves playing the block stacking games and wants to be a pro – a master of block stacking.
• Mason – an expert player of block stacking. He is highly regarded from his great skill, though his malicious temper keeps him away from people.
• Gerry – a legendary master of block stacking. Only one loss throughout his whole career.
• ? – Nobody knows who she or he really is. But no doubt that this one is the one who once beat Gerry.

Tips

• The five challengers convince you that every puzzle in the Homostackus world is solvable.
• Anyone who challenges the gamers with unsolvable puzzles will be banished from the Homostackus world.
