App Review: Topple 2 by ngmoco, Inc.
Topple 2 by ngmoco, Inc. is a fun block stacking game with great graphics and smooth physics. The goal of the game is to stack odd shaped blocks to a certain height within the time limit. Once you have passed a certain height line, you can continue on for up to a 5X bonus. You can get rewards for stacking the blocks in a short amount of time.
To stack the blocks, touch the block and drag it to the place you would like to set it. If you want to rotate your block, touch it with one finger and move another finger in a circular motion. If your tower begins to fall over, you can touch parts of the tower and push it back to where you would like it. If you ever feel like the block you’ve been given isn’t right, throw it off the side and get a new one. You can only lose up to a total of 4 blocks during the game.
There are many different game modes. In the balance mode, you must balance the blocks evenly to help keep the tower from falling over. Another mode is the reverse mode. In this mode, you are underwater and have to stack the blocks beneath one another. This may seem very easy and maybe even pointless, but it is very challenging. One of the last game modes is rescue. In this mode, you must stack the blocks up to a golden egg in the sky. Then you must slowly tap away the blocks to lower the egg slowly to the ground. If the egg hits the ground too hard, you fail and have to restart.
Topple 2 offers a great theme with awesome character facial expressions. You can even choose your own iPod music to listen to while you play. This app does require that you update to OS 3.0. So if you haven’t upgraded yet, now is the time. Topple 2 is a fun game with a high replay value and the chance to compete against your friends over WiFi.
Topple 2 is $0.99 in the iTunes App Store.
