If you have played Topple 1 and 2, this game is no stranger to you. The main objective of this game is to make the private ranked sheep fall to the ground. If it topples to the left or right side, it will fall to the mercy of the wolves waiting for him.

IMG_0979

IMG_0984

The story of the game starts with the shepherds leaving the sheep for war and the sheep have to find their own food amidst the hordes of wolves surrounding them. Only one brave sheep offered to stand out to dispatch the food to the sheep in distress. Your mission is to make sure he lands on the ground safely.

IMG_0051

The game also lets you reverse each move using the top right button just besides the pause button. This is to help you reverse one move if you made the wrong move. You can also pause the game if you are in the middle of talking to someone on the iPhone or doing some work. The number of medals which you won are in the middle of the game screen.

On the top left corner of the game screen, there is a timer ticking down. This is to let you know how much time you had left in the game. After the sheep lands safely, it will salute you for saving him from the wolves.

The game also shows the number of medals which you accumulate when playing the game at each level. This game has 80 levels which will guarantee you endless fun on your iPhone or iPod Touch.

There are other game elements which makes this game extremely fun to play. There are stages where you need to make sure the wolf (disguised as a sheep) do not land safely on the ground. The ice blocks found in the middle of the boxes will break if something falls on it too quickly.

There are also explosives which will explode if you touch it with your finger or something falls on it very hard. You cannot click and destroy metal crates in the game. All these elements make the game on a different level compared to Topple 1 and 2.

You cannot cheat in this game using the iPhone accelerometer to tilt and want the sheep block to move in the other direction though. Grab this game if you are a Topple physics hardcore gamer.

White Birds Productions and Bulkypix Announce That Babel Rising Surpassed 1 Million Downloads and keeps going

17 May

Highly Popular Tower Defense Game Featuring God Coming to iPad Soon, Joining The Ranks of Popular Titles, including Saving Private Sheep

France – April 27, 2010 – White Birds Productions and Bulkypix today announced that Babel Rising, its award-winning tower defense puzzle game for iPhone and iPod touch, has sold more than 1 million units worldwide.

image

Babel Rising is a tower-defense game with a twist. The tower in this case is the Tower of Babel from Genesis 11:1-9, and you play God trying to keep the builders from completing the tower for as long as possible.

image

You accumulate points for killing humans with your various divine powers and for slowing the builders down. Your powers include the finger of God (invoked by touching humans), lighting bolts (swipe down with one finger), mighty wind (swipe across with one finger), a tidal wave (swipe across with two fingers), fireballs from heaven (swipe down with two fingers, and earthquake (shake the iPhone).

image

image

Each power takes time to recharge, and depending on the destructiveness of the power, recharging time ranges from quick (finger of God, lightning) to slow (wind, tidal wave) to very slow (fire balls, earthquake). That means the stronger destructive powers can only be used occasionally. It should be noted that none of these divine powers do any damage to the tower itself, only to the humans. However, occasionally, God’s divine eye grows large and blinks. If you touch the eye at the critical moment, you can utterly destroy one level (but only one) of the tower.

image

“Bulkypix steps above other publishers by truly working hard to bring their games to market,” said Michel Bams of White Birds Productions. “No other company has managed to repeatedly raise previously unknown titles to the top of the App Store charts, making them into leading game brands as they have done with Babel Rising.”

“As soon as anyone plays Babel Rising, they are happy and addicted,” promised Bulkypix COO and Head of Marketing, Vincent Dondaine. “The game has universal appeal. After all, who would want to pass up playing God?”

Anyone who wants to dive into this hugely addictive game can get the full version for just $0.99 on the App Store now.
