Tiki Towers is a puzzle arcade game for the iPhone. And I must say this should be the best one-dollar buy on the app store.

Your aim is transport five monkeys across various falls and pits of lava and take them to their destination. To do this you construct bridges and towers of bamboo! Once you finish building your bamboo structures, tapping on a box full of monkeys will release them out of the box. They begin climbing the bamboo structures Tiki Towersand reach the monkey shrine (the destination).

Its when you tap on the box the laws of physics come into action. If your bamboo structures are not stable, they collapse, and you might end up sending a monkey or two to heaven! The bamboo structures get strained up and break when there are too many monkeys on them. There are also certain hooks in the levels, off which the bamboo sticks might hang or swing.

The game should already sound interesting! Well – it does have its drawbacks. For one, the physics isn’t so real. For another, the sound sucks. But hey – we are talking about a one-dollar game here!, and if I didn’t mention it (but I think I did), this should be the best one-dollar buy on the app store. And oh! one dollar is the introductory price! If you are debating about buying the game, make your decision soon, or it will be too late.
