Tiki Towers is a game by RealNetworks division GameHouse for WiiWare, BlackBerry, iOS (iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad), Android, Windows Phone and Symbian S60. The game has been likened to the similar puzzle game World of Goo.[1]

Gameplay[edit]

Based around a tropical Tiki culture-theme, the game involves players directing a troupe of monkeys to retrieve bananas by building towers of bamboo scaffolding to reach the fruits, with the ultimate goal of collecting all bananas and having all monkeys reach the designated "exit". This adds conflict as the player usually is tasked with building towers on a limited bamboo budget and if a tower falls it may prevent the monkeys from completing the level.

On the Nintendo Wii version of the game, while much remains the same (with regard to the mobile versions), one significant difference is that the player must also fend off "evil monkeys" trying to sabotage the player's towers while the "good monkeys" (player's 'troupe') are working toward their goal.

Reception[edit]

IGN called it a "fun and playable imitation" of World of Goo, giving it a 7.3/10.[1] WiiWare World gave it a 7/10, noting that as a solid game at a third of Goo's price, it was worth a look.[2]
