  2. Hmm. Might give this one a miss. But it did make me smile when I saw in the features-

    "FREE lifetime updates!" -Woopee! Gives it a BIG advantage over the other apps then- not!

    It seems to be a Tower Bloxx version without steroids...

    I was thinking the same thing. At a buck it's not a big deal but I might wait til later today to get it. SimCity was just released so I will be playing that and 7 cities all day

    I helped beta testing it for the Pocket PC and on the beta testing forums we had loads of fun testing and playing it. Haven't tried it on the iPod Touch so this is all I can say. :)

    And the screenshots are not helping... Subpar graphics?

    Have you played tower bloxx before?

    I'm curious how it stacks up (no pun intended)

    No sorry, never heard of that before. :eek:
    I'm not a gamer, except for on my mobile devices.

    I just found the free online Tower Bloxx, and it's very much comparable. :)
    On the PPC, I just tap the screen to release a totem and the accuracy with which you release the block determines how good your tower is. The more accurate, the better your score.

    PROS
    - Fun to play
    - Statistics
    - Medallions to unlock
    - Just $0.99

    CONS
    - Required a reboot (at least in my iPhone)
    - 3 screens before the main menu (Glyph, eSoft then Challingo)
    - Interface tends to be small (delivers that port feeling)
    - Graphics are just OK (deliver that port feeling)
    - Sound is just good, not nice, good (delivers that port feeling)
    - No Survival mode

    Bottom Line

    It's worth considering the price tag. Fun to play! :)
