About This Place

First started in late 2007, Kasey's Mobile Game Review (then just a regular feature of Kasey's Korner) started as a simul-post between here and IGN. Later I realized there's no reason to post it twice, when I can use the traffic on my own site. so, here we are, in 2010, and the mobile game industry has grown a bit. What do you think?

Mobile Game Review of "3D Tower Bloxx"

A city layout with a very high population pote...Image via Wikipedia3D Tower Bloxx is latest iteration of the Tower Bloxx series. Tower Bloxx was mainly two parts... You stack "bloxx" to create a skyscraper, then you plant the skyscraper in accordance to certain restrictions to maximize the building capacity. Is it fun? Hmmm... Not after a while. Taken in small doses, it's okay, but if you play it a lot you get bored of it very quickly.

The 3D version adds 3D graphics but otherwise is pretty much same as previous versions. However, the 3D version is the one being graded here.

There are four types of towers, red, blue, green, and yellow, in order of capacity from low to high. The red ones can go anywhere, a blue must go next to a red, a green must go next to a blue AND a red, and a yellow much be next to red, green, AND blue. Thus, placement is very important.

Stacking the bloxx makes up the buildings. The more precisely you stack the bloxx's, the more residents you can fit. The bloxx just swing, and you have to drop it. The higher the bloxx stack, the more the tower itself swings. So it's all a matter of eye-finger coordination.

3D version added a pure building mode, 'achievements', and some alternate game modes. However, they don't really add much to the game. The game is so simple, there isn't much else left to learn, and if you play it a lot you'll just get more frustrated. This game should be taken in small doses, and small doses only.

Rating: 6.5 out of 10
Pros: simple to pickup, charming in a way
Cons: perhaps TOO simple, action portion is one-button game
