Raise your hand if you've played Topple! Well, there's a new block-stacker in town, and this one won't penalize the caffeinated, shaky-handed gaming masses. Dox Bloxx abandons accelerometer input in favor of timing based controls. Like Topple, the objective is to stack blocks as high as possible without tipping the pile. But that's where the similarity ends.
Crates are lifted in one after another by a crane hovering above an industrial ocean liner. Your job is to stack them as evenly as possible to prevent the tower from tipping over. The crates slide back and forth until you tap the screen and launch them into free-fall. Once they've dropped there is no turning back. It lands where it lands. With such a lazy crane operator, you'd think they would reconsider shipping radioactive waste and live penguins. Oh well. Who are we to judge?
There's also a new, top secret phase of the game currently in development. We aren't allowed to say much, but think round boxes and LOTS of explosions.
If you're looking for a fresh twist on a time tested genre, this one is for you. Feel free to down a couple Jolt Colas while you're at it. Dox Bloxx is forgiving.
