Stone Tower is a very, very simple game. There are only two modes; 1 on 1, or Single Player. In the latter mode, you simply stack rocks – long rocks, short rocks, fat rocks, skinny rocks, curved rocks – in order to build the tallest tower you can without toppling it. Rocks can be manipulated simply, rotating them on a single axis 360 degrees before you drop them from the sky. The gravity mechanics can be a little bit wonky at times, but overall it’s pretty solid.

In the 1 on 1 mode, you compete against another player. The two of you are actually building the same tower in real time, with each player placing one rock at a time; sort of like a reverse Jenga. The first player to make the tower topple, loses. You wager “Coins” and “Trophies” in each match; if you win, you earn more of both. If you lose, you lose the ones you wagered. Coins can also be used to undo your last move that toppled the tower, in single player mode.

You can buy additional coins using real money, but in my experience with the game it really isn’t necessary. In addition to earning coins by winning multiplayer matches, you can also come back every 24 hours for a free spin on the “Reward Wheel” to get a random amount of coins.
What I like
- Cute graphics.
- Simple, addicting gameplay.
- True free-to-play.
What I don’t
- Coins seem shoe-horned in.
- Same pieces every time means a finite number of combinations for each game.
Stone Tower is a very fun game that’s absolutely worth a download. Give it a try. Stacking rocks has never been so cute, or so enjoyable.
