    Placing that final keystone to solidify my creation has always injected a dose of lightheartedness to the experience. If you like building in any capacity, or are looking for yet another top-notch multiplayer PSN game, Tricky Towers is for you.

    Not just an exceptional title that breathes fresh life into the traditional Tetris formula, Tricky Towers also gives a great account of itself for those folks looking to test their brains rather than their trigger fingers in both local and online multiplayer gatherings.

    A package that makes the simple act of stacking utterly cracking. [Sept 2016, p.108]

    Tricky Towers isn't particularly original or meant to be played alone, but if you're looking for a party game, it does have a lot of fun to offer.

    A Puzzle game that will make you genuinely laugh if you play it with some friends on a couch or online. Some great ideas make Tricky Towers one of the good surprises of the genre.

    If you’re approaching Tricky Towers with only single player in mind, there are probably far better ways to spend your time. However, take it online – or ideally get some mates round – and you’ve suddenly got a fun, competitive little title that’ll easily keep you amused for a few hours.

    Tricky Towers is not fun or enjoyable, but you might get something out of it if you’re a masochist.

A fun, whimsical arcade game that has cool single player puzzels and an endless high-score mode. The real treat lies in its multiplayer which reminds me of the frantic 4-player battles I had with Towerfall. A welcome breeze of fresh air on PSN/STEAM.

    Don't think you will be dealing with a simple Tetris clone here, because Tricky Towers' game mechanics work quite differently. Basically we are dealing with a physics puzzler/arcade game where wheather elements, spells and your own actions have influence on how high you can build your tower. It is basically virtual Jenga.

    Beautifully designed levels will fill your flatscreen with all colours of the rainbow and the comical, cartoony score and sound design will make you smile. I downloaded it on PlayStation+ but I would happily spend money on this great game!

    This is a great twist on Tetris, but you're going to get frustrated quickly if you don't realize it's a different game. Physics are key toThis is a great twist on Tetris, but you're going to get frustrated quickly if you don't realize it's a different game. Physics are key to building and it may take a few rounds to get used to them. I recommend practicing in the single player puzzle mode to learn how to balance your towers. Once you develop some strategies, you will feel in control of your tower building. Relatively easy to learn basics, that appear to have significant depth if you keep playing.

    The single player trials keep pushing you to become better at the three different modes in the game, and the multiple online VS modes let you see how you rank against others.

    I find the music a little grating, but it's easy to turn it off in the setting and shouldn't be a deal breaker.

    If you like puzzle games, definitely give this game a chance.

    Okay 10 for me because I actually like it. But there is place to put some more details in the game. There can be more modes, environments, etc.
