App description: NEWLY UPDATED IN SPRING 2011

Number 1 - Action Game in 13 Countries (January 2011)
Number 1 - Overall Free Game & App in 3 Countries (Jan 2011)
Over 75,000 downloads in one day (January 2011)


A real world physics puzzle game to test your design and building skills to the limit.

BUILD THE TOWER up to target height using the varied blocks and make sure you've designed it well enough to survive a 10 second earthquake.

UNLOCK THE ASTEROIDS To add to the difficulty as you also have to fend off the sideways attacks.

Features unique 'Shake to Quake' functionality using the accelerometer

DIFFICULTY varies depending on the intensity of the quake, the blocks provided and the land available. Also the asteroids make it a lot tougher once they are unlocked.

LOTS OF LEVELS to complete each with its own architectural puzzle to be solved.

A HIGHSCORE is set for each level and a total is shown in the highscore menu. Can you get it above 8000?

This is my first iphone/ipod touch game and it took a long arduous 3 months of production, working on it each evening after work and in between feeding our first daughter who was born a week before I started making Quake Builder...

A year on and I've finally got round to updating it...babies do keep you busy it would seem.

Hope you like it, and please leave a good review if you enjoy playing. Many Thanks.

Alrighty so I played through the whole game. Seeing how I'm Californian pro at making earthquake safe buildings LOL. It is a short game only 20 levels. The physics were a bit too touchy for me always had stuff flying around. the levels have a good variation to them, not the same thing over and over. And the quakes add a different difficulty to some levels.I like having to shake my phone to start the quake. The one and only level I had a problem with was the dreaded LVL 18. That one is hard to pull off. Some observations.

Need a pause button. I pressed the info button but it doesn't pause the time running down.

The needle on the timer after starting the quake wouldn't make it all the way around.

A little typo on the intro to level 14

Those are just minor things. I would like to see more variation in the background would be nice I did like the art style. the unhappy birds add a new difficulty to the whole game. It did make me laugh when they came on screen trying to knock down my buildings.Overall good start. Its a fun physics game. Congrats on your first game and on your monster I mean princess
