Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Glass Tower 2 is free -- but that only gets you 10 levels. To get more than ten levels, you need to pay 99¢, and then another 99¢ if you want the "level editor" that you can use to create your own puzzles. Most of the time, if an app does not contain a full game, it will be labeled as "lite" to let you know that what you're downloading is essentially just a demo. But the developers here didn't do that, which seems a bit tricky. Glass Tower 2 is a great game, but it's really a $1.99 app, not a free app.
Is it any good?
If you overlook the sneaky pricing on GLASS TOWER 2, it's a really great puzzle app. You are presented with stacks of differently-shaped glass blocks, and you must eliminate all the blue blocks (by tapping and shattering them) without letting any of the red blocks fall and break. It's an incredibly simple concept, but it's simplicity makes it addictive (which makes you all the more eager to buy the additional levels). What's really neat is your ability to stabilize shaky towers by literally tilting your mobile device and rebalancing teetering blocks. There are also a couple of helpful power-ups, like a freeze spell that pauses falling blocks in mid-air.
