Physics based games are popular to some and frustrating to others. The bridge builder has been a sub genre that exemplifies this. In Tiki Towers you have a limited amount of bamboo to build a structure that will withstand the amount of force swinging monkeys will put on it as they make their way to the exit, grabbing bananas along the way.
Control is pretty decent. You click or drag from a build point to create bamboo structures. Once satisfied, click the action button and see how it handles the monkeys. If you make a mistake or your structure is inadequete, you can go into erase mode, and tap or drag to destroy parts of, or the whole of your structure. The only iffy control is the camera. It takes two fingers to look around the level, but as you can pinch to zoom in or out, the camera can get confused.
The game has a nice use of colour, the monkeys are expressive, and it's never difficult to figure out where and what to build. The music is jaunty and the hooting of the monkeys is amusing. The game contains five islands full of challenges, and if you unlock the gold mask on each level by grabbing all the bananas, there is a secret island.
As bridge building physics games go, Tiki Towers is a great effort. The levels are varied with lots of challenge, and the monkey theme adds a fun personality to the brain bending. If you enjoy games like World of Goo, give Tiki Towers a try.
Unleash the monkey within!
