Topple 2 Review

Topple is back!! ngmoco has released the sequel to their popular game Topple. Topple 2 sports many new and different features than the original app (which is free in case you want to try it out before buying Topple 2) but keeps the same concept. The app has 30 levels over 6 different worlds. It uses both accelerometer and multi-touch controls. The original app (free) was mainly stacking. Though it was fun the sequel includes new game modes such as upside down mode, balance mode, power tower, and rescue mode. The description pretty much sums the details up:

At last, the hit game Topple that has attracted over 3 million downloads now has a content packed sequel with four new game modes and the ability to play with friends! Immerse yourself in 30 levels in over 6 Topple worlds that allow you to balance and stack fun and playful Topple blocks using multi-touch and accelerometer controls.

For the first time, face your friends to a “stack attack,” racing one another in real-time. No friends near you? Send your “ghost” play-through so your friends can accept your challenge at their convenience!

Enjoy the classic Topple experience, but master the new modes as well. Upside-down mode inverts gravity for a topsy-turvy play experience. Balance mode lets you weigh two towers against each other. Power Tower mode challenges you to build a power line using conductive blocks. Rescue mode uses your tower building skills to save the precious golden egg.

• Play new game mechanics including Upside-down,
˙ Balancer, Power Tower and Rescue!

• Challenge friends in versus mode using
˙ Wi-Fi or E-mail

• Unlock massive replay ability with free play
˙ versions of all the game modes.

• Enjoy the visuals of six new worlds, playful
˙ animations and a sweeping musical score

• Drag, rotate and tilt familiar Topple
˙ faces in this brand new world!

So how is it? Awesome. It has the “ngmoco standard”. All their apps are well done and polished. The game itself is fun and challenging. But if that is not enough you can play with your friend over Wi-Fi (as long as he or she is on the same network).


The music and backgrounds, just everything blends in perfectly. The app is pretty bug-free. It does crash once in a while but I can assure you this does not happen often and knowing ngmoco it will problably get fixed soon.The app features realistic physics and hours of fun.

The app is currently in a intro price of $2.99 for a limited time. Take advantage of the intro price!! The game is well worth it. And as always, here’s a YouTube video of the game:

Reply from ngmoco:

1)  Crashes:  We are currently working on a fix for the sporadic crashes, so users can expect that soon.

2)  MP win notification:  There are 2 types of multiplayer (Versus and Challenge).  Right now, we do message who wins a Versus match, and we will definitely be adding notification of who won a versus challenge in an update, as well.
