3348427533_1478b5d3c3jpgngmoco's recent winner of a 2009 Apple Design Award, Topple 2 [App Store] is currently on sale for 99¢. Topple 2 takes the original (no longer available on the App Store) Topple formula and adds additional gameplay modes as well as WiFi multiplayer an email challenges.

From my review of Topple 2 a few months ago:

The premise of the Topple series is simple, you stack blocks of various shapes and sizes to reach a set altitude goal within the provided time limit. Blocks can be rotated to fit better in to the existing stack and the game makes excellent use of the accelerometer. If your tower of multicolored blocks isn’t as sturdy as you would like it to be, tilting the phone left or right causes your stack to lean, potentially giving you the extra bit of stability you need in order to not send everything crashing down.

Mostly due to WiFi challenges, both Topple 2 and WordFu [App Store] have lived long and happy lives on my iPhone. If you're looking for a colorful stacking game filled with smug looking squares and menacing triangles, give Topple 2 a try. The latest update included iPod controls, and with any luck, Plus+ integration will soon follow.

    So i just bought it but it wants a newer version of iPhone OS than I am running. I'm running the latest pre-3.0 OS (2.2.1 or whatever it's called).

    So the iStore just let me buy it and yet I can't even play it until I upgrade to 3.0?

    That's a shame.

    To be honest, I really didn't like the original, the only thing that kept me playing it was the completionist in me.

    I cannot find the original through the app store on my itouch. Is it removed from the store?

    yes they removed the original from the store, because it is too similar to the original and was free, thus taking away sales from the sequel, I believe their reasoning was : to eliminate confusion for the customer

    i also was not a fan of the original

    I remember Topple was one of the pioneers in highly polished iphone games and the sequel is definable worth 99 cents! I really like ngmoco but I really wish ngmoco would make less shallow games :( You get what you pay for you I guess but I have purchased many amazingly in depth games for 1-5 dollars from publishers like chillingo and gameloft :)

    I enjoyed the original, but only because it was tough at first. However, I quickly discovered the secret to just "beating" (although not with the maximum star amounts) the levels - as the blocks stack up, everything not up on the screen is then "safe" and won't collapse if you can't see it.

    As soon as I discovered this, I put minimal effort into actually stacking the blocks properly and instead just focused on stacking them well enough for me to be able to move them "off screen" and work on new ones. After I did that, I won every single time bonus.

    Haven't played the second one yet, but it looks like a much fuller game.
