BIG BUILDER ($1.19)

The guys who brought you the “Rip Curl Surfing Game” are set to release another cracking App “Big Builder”. This 3D game is not another generic application; it is a fresh idea, which is simple and fun to play.

The main aim of the game is to knock down and re-stack boxes full of colourful building materials in their original order before the forklift picks up your pallet stack. If you are skilful and smart enough to re-stack the boxes on the pallets in the right order the boxes will reveal themselves to you.  Building in the correct order will score more points for you than building in a random order. The more points you score on each build stage will unlock the next building stage in the Big Builder City and reveal pictures of the stage you just built.

Big Builder City

Start each level by throwing “Big Luke’s” hammer at a stack of building boxes. Hitting the Target Box blows it up giving you a bonus score, and an advantage of having to stack fewer boxes. Remember before you throw the hammer at the stack, make sure you memorise the colour order of the stacks, as re-stacking them in the correct order gives you maximum points.

Once you have built your stack “Big Luke” will come along and pick up the pallets in his forklift and start building the House, Skyscraper or Casino.

Re-building the stack only requires one finger and good aim. When you start to master the game you will learn you can pull back on the boxes in mid air and aim them at the pallets. You can even juggle them if you get really good.

Zoo Build Stage

As you progress through the levels you will notice no level is the same. The obstacles are always making life tough, but you can smash some of them to bits throwing your boxes at them.

Amusement Park Build Stage

As well as navigating the objects you also need to avoid throwing you boxes into the birds, which fly by randomly. You can’t kill these birds; they will just knock your boxes off course. Once you comes to terms with the birds you will then have to stop the mice eating you boxes, luckily these critters can be killed by just tapping on them.

Casino Build Stage

This is one of those rare games that tests your memory as well as your skill. It’s a game you can chose to play while on the train for a few minutes or sit at home for hours and master all 60 levels.

Anyone can become a Big Builder!

Release Date – Currently there is a version on the app store however we have tweaked it slightly and a new version with 3G capability to be released on 20/04/2012 + another higher version in the works.

Developer – Silhouette Studios have been round for some time developing a number of successful apps such as the Rip Curl Surfing game and Oral B. I (Heath Richards) similar to most other person with an idea, although without the skills to make it happen; contacted these guys and they agreed it had legs and they were happy to develop it. I worked with them for nearly 12 months trying to get the concept right and after a heap of hard work we think we have a good simple to use game that is fun to play. I hate to drop the addictive line, but currently we have some really impressive play lengths and reviews so people seem to be enjoying it. Currently this app is only available with Apple; however we are extending this to Android in the near future.

Why did I create it – I wont lie I would love to make some pocket money out of it, although in addition to this I think it’s a really good game idea which people will hopefully love. I have two young kids and they play it often and I can tell it helps develop their memory and motor skills.

About Me – I’m from Australia, 33 years old, married with two kids; so I don’t much time on my hands and I enjoy all types of sports and going out with my mates. I work as an accountant for an AFL Football team in Australia which keeps me very busy too but I love it. I’m basically just an ordinary guy trying to get an idea off the ground.
