What's it about?
THE TOWER: ASSASSIN'S CREED adds settings and heroes from the Assassin's Creed role-playing game series to the popular stacking game The Tower. The idea is to build the tallest tower possible by tapping the screen as sections of the tower float by. Mistimed taps make tower sections get thinner and harder to line up until they vanish completely. When that happens, the level's done, and you send your favorite assassin plummeting to earth in a death-defying Leap of Faith, earning helix points along the way. Helix points can be used to buy power-ups and unlock additional geographical locations and unique assassins. Challenge yourself to top your personal best or to climb to the top of the leaderboard.
Is it any good?
Though admittedly not much more than a themed skin of an existing app, this little stacking game is entertaining enough in small doses. The Assassin's Creed art as well as that series' iconic Leap of Faith differentiates the app from its generic precursor, and the removal of the in-app store makes it truly free-to-play. Ads are omnipresent if you refuse to pay the one-time ad removal fee, but then again, watching ads is a way to earn substantial in-game currency. Aside from building a higher tower, there's not a lot to work toward -- only more tower locations and leaderboard bragging rights -- but with no energy or life limitations, you can free-play forever. Older kids and fans of the Assassin's Creed games will enjoy the look of The Tower: Assassin's Creed, and its simple gameplay and lack of offensive content make it good for younger kids to play. The only real downside to the app is that it's slow to load and somewhat prone to crashing. Still, considering the price, it's a good-looking, fun little time-filler.
