Hmm. Might give this one a miss. But it did make me smile when I saw in the features-

"FREE lifetime updates!" -Woopee! Gives it a BIG advantage over the other apps then- not!

It seems to be a Tower Bloxx version without steroids...

I was thinking the same thing. At a buck it's not a big deal but I might wait til later today to get it. SimCity was just released so I will be playing that and 7 cities all day

I helped beta testing it for the Pocket PC and on the beta testing forums we had loads of fun testing and playing it. Haven't tried it on the iPod Touch so this is all I can say.

Have you played tower bloxx before?

I'm curious how it stacks up (no pun intended)

Here is a quick review of the PocketPC version:

The reviewer is unclear of how the medaillons are earned, there is a forum post explaining this here:

No sorry, never heard of that before.
I'm not a gamer, except for on my mobile devices.

I just found the free online Tower Bloxx, and it's very much comparable.
On the PPC, I just tap the screen to release a totem and the accuracy with which you release the block determines how good your tower is. The more accurate, the better your score.
