The goal of this Android game is to meet the objective described for each specific level. To start, tap the screen to insert a new block. Once the block is added, you no longer have direct control over it, but can influence it with gravity by tilting your Android device from left to right. For maximum stability and responsiveness, hold your device parallel to the ground. Pay attention to the two different classifications of blocks described by the developer as Not-Yet-In-Tower (NYIT) and Already-In-Tower (AIT). Focus on the AIT blocks, which are a brighter green color, because they are the ones counted for height, activating checkpoints, and collecting bonuses.
This top Android game offers two modes; adventure and quick game. Adventure mode features different worlds e.g. Forest, Desert, and Underwater, which each contain multiple levels with various challenges (and must be unlocked as you progress). The complexity and uniqueness in each level’s design and objective is the biggest reason why this Android game is so much fun.
