First, choose an egg to hatch into a crazy creature, then customize its features and add it to your totem stack. Gradually build up your stack using totem blocks of all shapes and sizes, until you have completed a stack of 10! Finally, shake your device and play with your creation, before watching the creatures tumble and roll when you explode the tower, ready to start over! Video iPhone and iPad: 1.99 Google Play: Free + In-App Purchases Amazon: Free + In-App Purchases
