Only you can lead them to safety in this amazing new puzzle game featuring construction, destruction and problem-solving!

Tiki Towers is action and puzzle gaming at its best! – 5 different islands and 45 challenging levels – Build bridges and towers using bamboo, coconuts and vines – Realistic physics – bamboo structures will bend, break, and collide with the environment. Monkeying around has never been more fun!
Here’s a video of Tiki Tower 2 (yeah 2) on the iPhone to give you an idea what to expect:
There’s even a Blackberry versions of Tiki Tower but I’m comfortable saying any version is better than that version.
So a mixed bag. A good game with the Xbox Live tie-in but it’s old news to other platforms. And yes, I’ll still try it and I like physics games so I’ll likely buy it despite my apparent yawning…
