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.

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.

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.

When you advance to the next level, the game will show you a map where all the drop-off points for the designated sheep. You will feel energized after progressing one level up in the map.

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.

Graphics: 3.5 /5

    I’ve never played the Topple games, but I am wondering how the game physics are in action. The initial screenshots look like the introductory Splash pages, but it would be good to have both an arcade and story mode. The various cut-aways add a unique dimension to the overall game play ala Angry Birds. While the artwork on this game looks light and fun, I’m hoping the soundtrack will not be too irritable and juvenile as some games that strive to be fun are. Yes, we can remove the sound but sometimes that means not only removing the music but the effects as well.

    The review stated the sheep’s native enemy, how about a native “friend”? I put “friend” in quotes because to the sheep, it may look more like an enemy, but to humans, it would be more of an ally. This ally would be a “sheep dog” who could be invoked at certain times when it gets difficult in the later stages of the game.

    I love Topple! So instead of like in Topple building up you save the sheep by tearing down. That’s sounds entertaining and challenging.

    The different game modes with the wolves sounds fun. The only thing that would be nice to see would be different sheep to save. Or multiple sheep. I could really see it getting challenging having to save 2, 3 or even 4 sheep at once.

    Great review. Thanks.
