Tower of Babel is a game where you work with friends to build a tower out of buildings. You control the game with a single button (and one more for special abilities) to drop your building on the stack. It swings left and right so you have to time it just right. Get it perfectly on top to score more points and make it harder for competitors.

The tower building gets more difficult with uneven buildings to drop or the wind blowing it off course. You can play in Selfish mode where you race to build the tallest tower. Co-op mode means you work with others taking it in turns to drop the buildings on the tower. Battle mode has two teams working on two towers and sending trouble each other's way.

It's a simple game that works really well for a range of ages, but also offers enough skill from that single button press to make you want one more go.
