Last night a new game was released on the Android Market it is called Shakytower. It has been in testing for the last couple of weeks now, you may have noticed we retweeted the request for beta testers.
Below is how it is described in the Android Market
“Fun physics game with a twist.
ShakyTower is a challenging physics game with a twist.
Show off your stacking skills, blow things up, avoid obstacles and use many awesome tricks to experience the ShakyTower worlds.
Explore the Forest World, slide your way through the Ice World, don’t get sun-burnt in the Desert World, fend off sharks in the Underwater World, don’t get lost in the Computer World, and show cosmic skills in the Moon World, Armstrong-style!
Sway your phone to control gravity. Watch out for obstacles and relentlessly moving lines. The building blocks come in various types and may look ultracute but don’t get fooled, they can get really cheeky…
Enjoy impressively smooth gameplay in more than a hundred different levels and two game modes: quick-game and adventure.
OpenFeint integrated so you can see who’s the real pro and who’s only
bragging! Visit the ShakyTower Shop for helpful items.
Level editor and new levels coming soon for added fun.”
How I would describe it is a phone balancing, box stacking, obstacle dodging, target hitting, puzzle solving great fun game. It uses the accelerometer in your phone to detect slight movements which effect the balance of the towers you have to build. The aim of the game is to build towers with blocks to hit a certain target, some levels involve you solving puzzles by rolling the blocks around, some levels involve you trying to destroy all the blocks in a set time or trying to keep a tower of blocks from falling over by keeping your phone level. Once installed make sure you follow the instructions to calibrate the accelerometer. It is a free game and it will work on Android 1.6 upwards as well.
