The game has a sleek minimalist design with clear instructions and easy navigation. When you first download the app, you enter a beautiful start page. When you hit the play button you will have the option to view instructions. The instructions are short, clearly written, and include illustrations of exactly what you’ll see in the game.
When you proceed to play the game, you’ll have the option of playing in endless mode or missions mode. In endless mode, your only goal is to build towers. The towers are made by combining the cubes located on a floating platform and you swipe to move the cubes in the direction of the arrows displayed on the screen. You can swivel the platform to determine how the cubes combine. Once you’ve create towers of the same height, you can combine them to create taller towers.
In missions mode, you get 80 different missions at an increasing level of difficulty. In each mission you get a certain amount of moves to make a tower of a certain height. The height you must reach increases at each level and the amount of towers you must build also increases. The height and amount of towers necessary to pass the mission are displayed down the left side of the screen.
The game features calming music, but you can turn it off in the main menu if you’d like. You also have the option of customizing the color from the standard purple to sea green, blue, a muted magenta, or burnt orange.
One of the major pros of this game is the design. It’s aesthetically beautiful, customizable, and extremely user friendly. You can easily access the menu from any page. You don’t have to search to find the instructions because it is located right on the play menu.
Another major pro is the game itself. You can relax in endless mode or turn up the pressure with missions that get harder and harder at each level. Not to mention, the game is completely free in the App store of any iPad or iPhone.
This game is a refreshing new take on a concept we’ve seen time and time again. However, this app takes the typical stacking and building game, and makes it sophisticated and engaging.
Just when you start to think the game is easy, the level of rigor will increase. You will be challenged at each level. This game will engage your mind as you try to think of new ways to combine the cubes to achieve the heights necessary to pass each level. This game is certainly titled appropriately as these towers will get tricky!
The only con is If you are looking for bells, whistles, and flashing lights. If that’s your style, then this game may not be for you. However, if you are looking for sophisticated, engaging, and simplistically addicting, then this is the perfect game for you.
Should you try Tricky Towers? It is a definite yes!
