“Tower of Babel – no mercy” is a physics-based tower building title on the Nintendo Switch. This game is playable solo and multiplayer with many modes to accommodate going head-to-head with bots, couch co-op, or online. If you’re looking to just reach your own personal best, build the tower by yourself in Selfish Mode. Looking to take on some friends? Jump into the game with others locally or online!
The best part of “Tower of Babel – no mercy” is it requires very little instruction. Just build the tower! The game’s physics consists of a piece of your tower swinging from a pendulum. Pressing A will drop the piece on top of your foundation, and another piece will start swinging in its place. Time each drop right, and it’ll land the pieces on top of one another, stacking your tower higher and higher.
The towers get trickier over time, either from mistakes you might make, or the change in the pieces’ shapes. My first downfall was an archway precariously placed on top of several floors of the tower I built.
The flat art style consists of silly and fun characters and settings, which makes it adaptable as a great party game or game for the family. It has a silly factor that gives it its charm.
“Tower of Babel – no mercy” is best when played with friends (or even bots). Connect online to take on someone, or grab a Joy-Con and have a friend next to you join in. Multiplayer was just as smooth as solo or against bots. If you play team against team, each player on your team gets a chance to drop a piece of the tower. If you’re a control freak, imagine the reverse of the panic that sets in when you play Jenga with friends. If one piece falls, it all comes toppling over and you lose.
This game is simple, but it executes what it sets out to do well. I recommend “Tower of Babel – no mercy” for parties or friends and family looking to bond over a fun title on the Nintendo Switch.
