Tricky Towers on Nintendo Switch™

The highly anticipated party game Tricky Towers finally found its foundation on the Nintendo Switch™. This follows earlier success on PlayStation ®4, Xbox One and Steam, where the game has already been enjoyed by over 1 million players. The game will offer several free and paid DLCs – expect several free brick skins in-game, and consider getting yourself some tricks or treats with the Halloween pack, or great new characters such as Octodad via the Indie Friends DLC. 

In this frantic tower building physics game players start off by choosing a friendly looking wizard character, picking a funny looking brick style and selecting one of the several game modes for online or offline (local) play. The objective is simple: stack your bricks, create a stable tower and out wizard your opponent with skills and spells. The outcome on the other hand is not so simple, resulting in everything from laughter, surprise, competitiveness or pretty much every other emotion… 

The campaign mode includes single-player score challenges and 50 wizard trials, which helps players learn about the different modes such as Survival, Puzzle, Race and Endless modes. Via online or local multiplayer players can battle it out in a single game or tournament format. On top of that, players can actually win a real trophy cup thanks to the printable tournament pack which includes a 3D trophy along with everything else you need to host your own wizard tournament. The tournament pack is downloadable for free via www.TrickyTowers.com

As the titles implies this game is trickier as it seems, with light and dark magic spells flying around, different weather conditions, and bricks falling down as the tower starts to tumble…
