Review

Tricky towers is a 3D tower building puzzle game, where one can build a higher tower by combining two towers of equal height. The user starts with a tower of height 1. After every move, a tower of height 1 or 2 appears randomly on a block of the playfield. The playfield is 4×4 square grid, which can be rotated by swiping left or right on the screen. When you stop rotating the playfield, the side facing towards the user displays two arrows facing upwards and downwards respectively, indicating that the blocks can be moved or combined by swiping up or down. The objective is to build the highest tower, however, the score is based on the points earned during the entire gameplay. The points earned are two times the height of the tower created. For example, you get 4 points for a tower of height 2. The game is available in five different colors, viz. purple, eco green, inky blue, enticing red and orange. A soothing, fun music is played in the background during the game, which can be turned On and Off by the user.
