Steady your Hand or Watch Your Tower Tumble

Reach into this 3D world, and into a single tower of blocks. Slide a block out, slowly and carefully, so the tower doesn’t collapse. That’s the challenge of Block54! As you enter other worlds, the challenges get heavier, trickier, and icier — one wrong move and the tower will tumble. Test the steadiness of your hands with Block54!

Every world presents a new challenge:

In Helios, the first futuristic world, there’s a single tower of blocks. Reach in and pull out a block, keeping the tower intact. In Pelos, the tower is surrounded by lava and the blocks are made of lava, so they’re heavy and harder to move. Boreas features a tower of ice blocks on an ice floor, surrounded by water — it's a slippery, trickier way to play. In Novos the blocks have zero gravity. As you remove them, they float. But be careful. They auto-destruct, so your tower does, too.

Key Features:
  • Reach into 3D space and pick up objects
  • The more you play, the better you get
  • Tutorial, Arcade, and Classic gaming modes
  • Beginner and Advanced settings

    This is a great game, but definitely challenging. Watch the tutorials to learn how to rotate, pinch and poke the blocks. Takes some doing but can definitely master with practice.

    Great app. and greatly achieved. It is a bit on the challenging side but that is a plus.

     


  • Steuerung leider sehr schlecht und damit unspielbar!

    Ich habe mir diese App heruntergeladen, und habe nach den ersten 10 Minuten gemerkt das mann das spiel so nicht spielen kann, Persönlich finde ich das Spiel sehr interessant aber die Steuerung verdirbt einen den Spaß. Ich hoffe das man die Steuerung noch weiter verbessern kann.

     


  • Lacking control

    Quite a bit of promise, but practically unusable due to sensitivity and control issues. I don't get it; there are lots of complex apps out there that work fine with the Leap Motion controller, but some apparently don't get it.

  • 5 stars for the challenge

    I like that this game takes some practice. The trick is a tight fist and only your thumb and index finger open to grab blocks. I'm better every time I play it, so I end up wanting to play it more.

  • Steep learning curve, but a lot of fun

    Takes a while to pick up (pun intended), but it's great once you get the hang of it. You have full 3D control of the blocks... definitely something you couldn't do with a keyboard or mouse.

  • Difficult to Control, Insane to Master

    I've only been using the Leap Motion for a few hours and already I can tell this app is pretty incredible for free. Very hard to use (though I'm sure I'm just inexperienced in using the LEAP) but I can see the potential of the game. Some people may lose patience with this, but if you stick with it and keep trying, this game will surely help you fine tune your motor control in using the Leap Motion controller.
