    Tricky Towers is an indie game that mixes puzzles and party. The game is great to have fun with family and friends. However, if you prefer to play alone or online, perhaps this title is not for you.

    For the asking price though, it's hard not to recommend this if you've got a few pals or family members around. Like that Saturday night game of Monopoly, it's all good fun so long as someone doesn't flip the board.

    Tricky Towers offers up a cool twist on a puzzle classic, and the focus on multiplayer battling makes this an ideal game for showing off the Switch’s unique capability for multiplayer gaming on the go. Everybody knows how to play Tetris, and Tricky Towers does just enough to build on that core concept to make the game interesting and weird enough to be quite memorable. Although the single player offerings are a bit on the slim side, we enjoyed our time with Tricky Towers and would highly recommend it for anybody looking for a good couch multiplayer or puzzle game.

    All in all, Tricky Towers is a fun little multiplayer-focused title. While there is single player, I personally don’t feel that it provides enough on its own to warrant a purchase. However, if you have local or online friends who enjoy a good puzzle game (and particularly Tetris), then this is easily worth the price of admission. Just please don’t blame us when that friendship is strained by the dark magic powers in the game.

    Tricky Towers is a refreshingly modern multiplayer variation to the globally-known puzzler Tetris. Although it may not keep the party going all night due to its light content offering, Tricky Towers’ block-stacking action provides great local multiplayer moments – especially when the whole room reacts raucously to someone’s last-second tower collapse.

    Perhaps I am asking too much of this quirky little indie game. It doesn’t come from any major company like Sega. The developers have taken the Tetris formula and worked it in a brand new way. It’s fun and cute, but it does grow old more quickly than it should. Overall, the lack of additional gameplay modes keeps this good party game from being a great party game. Even just two more modes would have been just the right amount to keep it from going stale so quickly.

    Tricky Towers is all about frantic competition between friends. Fun and accessible for the Tetris generation but with a new physics twist, this one comes recommended.

    This game is just plain fun. Created with lots of love to detail and well balanced gameplay mechanics. I played it last weekend with myThis game is just plain fun. Created with lots of love to detail and well balanced gameplay mechanics. I played it last weekend with my friends and family and we had an hour of great fun, before we switched to another game. It's nothing you play for hours at a time, but it fits in perfectly between fast-paced games such as Towerfall and relaxed ones Death Squared. I'm super happy to have it in my library and will boot it up for sure the next time I play with friends. I wish there would be a little more game modes (like classic Tetris or coop modes) but it's a straight 8. Expand
