    What is Topple?:
    From the guys who brought us Rolando [ngmoco], its a simple yet fun puzzle game. The aim of the game is to build your tower out of building blocks to reach the targeted hight.

    What makes it so good?: Well, firstly, its so simple that anyone with a brain cell can play it. It uses the same bright colours featured in Rolando and other apps made by ngmoco. Secondly it dosnt get boring fast so can play it alot.

    How to play the game:
    Basicly the game feeds you different types of shapes which you have to stack together in order to build a tower and reach the required hight. So as you build your tower it wobbles and you need to control this with the tilt control on the device. This moves the tower and is very realistic. [Dont play this in the car LOL]. So once you have reached the hight without the tower falling over you move on to the next level.

    Play Modes: There are 3 play modes, Practise, Levels and Free Play.

    Practise introduces you to the game and teaches you the basic ways of playing. Including moving, twisting, balancing and throwing away the blocks.

    Levels brings up 9 levels which you can play starting from 1, the easiest, to 9, the hardest. The aim of the levels is to get to the required hight without your tower falling or losing 4 blocks.

    Once you reach the goal line you have the option of getting to the bonus line for extra points.

    Free play is the same as Levels just without any time or targets.


    Overview:

    I greatly enjoyed playing Topple and would recomend it to anyone who gets bored and likes a challenge because, although, the first levels are very easy it can take a very long time to complete the last few levels and takes a lot of practice with the accelorometer to get it balanced.

    Price: Currently FREE so get it while it is!

    My rating: 5/5 - Could put an online leaderboard for highest towers. Could also add hight recorder on free play as currently you just build and it dosnt tell you how high you got. But for free it is definatly a great app!

    Your Reviews stand out from the other, incomplete, poor, 2 minute Reviews. Yours is deep and really give an idea of what we should expect from the game.

    Clap, Clap, Clap.
