64w ago - MonkeyPaw Games Marketing Manager Ray Almeda has shared a video today announcing that Tall Unlimited will be taking fans to a higher tower this week!
Below are the details, to quote: There is a lot going on here at is a puzzle game that allows your "inner builder" to create a tower of historical proportions.
But you'll need to race time and sweat to do so. The idea is to move blocks and multiply their numbers by creating formations. The concept is simple but it's a devilishly tricky endeavor.
The object of Tall Unlimited is to build your towers as fast as you can, as high as you can. The game is a progressive challenge through eight stages where you have to complete 10 levels in each stage. The gameplay is fast and furious but the complexity is intuitive and the feel is responsive.
So the game comes off refreshingly fun and original. Its addictive action and minimal frustration blends with a creative building element that pulls you in. Like potato chips, once you start you won't want to stop!
MonkeyPaw will continue to bring you closer to your Japanese gaming roots. We want to deliver all those lost classics from a far-away land that you never thought you'd get your trigger finger on. We hope you'll continue to browse our catalog and pick up...

However, this is reality, a reality where Bobby Kotick wants to raise game prices. Prices that are already at an expensive price point for video games, and during an economic crisis.
To quote: Attention Bobby Kotick - It's 2009, the global economy has crashed, in large part due to corporate greed. Maybe you haven't noticed the hit to the economy, since in 2008 you made a staggering (said in Dr. Evil voice) $15 million dollars.
Every day it seems as though 'poor' Mr. Kotick is headed toward being the most hated man in the gaming industry. And the more the guy opens his yapper, the more hate he deservedly gets.
