Thanks for the reply. You might want to put in your description that this has OF in it. I know that if I am on the fence on a game, OF will push me over so many others would do the same for a cheap game!

Default Game Impressions

Having taken it for a spin this morning I can testify it is pretty darned striaght forward and cool.

You play God but, I guess back in these Old Testament days, your power seems a bit limited.

The humans WILL eventually erect the Tower of Babel (once a section is built you can't ever knock it down) and all you can do is slow the progress down by taking out as many builders as you can with your variety of natural disasters and what I assume is the "Thumb of God". Each of these powers takes a bit to recharge and if you let them recharge even longer than the absolute minimum you can deliver them with extra effect. Wipe out a bunch of folk in rapid succession via the different elemental powers for big score multipliers!

Most importantly, unlike say some gesture based Castle Defense games like MonsterKill, the gestures are as simple as one or two fingers drawing down or horizontally (oh, and Earthquake is...wait for it...shaking the device). Impossible to screw up and very easy to aim accurately.

Good fun with the OF support and some fun achievements unlocked already.

It's a fair mix since, while thumb crushing is the most readily available it only takes one or two guys out at a time and even then needs a little recharge time so you CAN'T go all "Knights Onrush" even if you wanted to.

Something else I think I noticed (and it may all be in my mind) but different workers might be differently susceptible to your Godly Powers. Like a wind will not knock over the guys with the extra heavy blocks but an Earthquake certainly will.

How about heavy rains that would cause builders to slide off the tower?

A plague of locusts! Not sure what they'd do gameplay wise, but there is nothing more fun than a swarm of bugs!

How bout a way to damage/destroy the tower. I hate the fact that once a part of the tower is already built, there is no going back.
