We're here to talk about yet another one of this simple, elegant, and cute games developed by Ketchapp, with a really easy playability and in which the design is more important than any other aspect. That's the studio's signature. In this case, we're talking about The Tower, an arcade game in which you'll have to try to build the highest tower ever made.
Build the highest tower in the world to reach the sky in this tap game.
Hovering over the base, you'll see a block moving from side to side of the screen. When you tap the screen, the block will fall onto the base. If part of that block lands outside the base, it will be lost in space so your tower will become thinner and thinner, making it harder to place new blocks. In the meantime, a cute red bird will climb to the top of the wort with you. You'll start off with a Greek-style tower but as you play, you'll earn rewards and gain experience, being able to unlock other sorts of constructions. Made a mistake on a floor? Go back one step or to the latest checkpoint, although that will cost you virtual coins. The same goes for the power-ups that you can use to:
- Start off with upper levels.
- Double your coin earnings.
- Life insurance to resume the game if you make a mistake placing one of the blocks.
Defeat your friends, unlock new towers, and discover different locations.
Similar games and alternatives
You've probably heard of similar games developed by the same studio: Stack and The Tower Assassin's Creed. The first one is slightly different because instead of a tower, you'll have to stack up plain color blocks with 3D graphics. The second is basically the same game as The Tower but a special edition released for the 10th anniversary of the Assassin's Creed saga.
Cheats and hacks
Are you rather clumsy when it comes to playing? Start off patiently as it will take you some time to master the game. Although it sounds strange, each level will fit in better on the previous one the faster you play, so don't think take too long thinking about your move before tapping the screen. You'll earn more coins by fitting in the levels perfectly and building the highest towers.
