And once the building is complete, you need to whirl it off to the slove puzzles. There are 50 official levels of this game. While there are some very easy levels, there are some which are extremely tough and looks impossible but all these levels are possible. The game has been developed by Northway Games and Radial Games. You will certainly experience a whole new world around you. The game has been released on 5th of April this year and users are already liking it!

However, I think that the graphics of the game could have been better. It looks very childish.
