Time Sink: Cement Tower puzzle game

A wise man once said, “I’d say in a given week I probably only do about fifteen minutes of real, actual, work.” If that sounds eerily similar to your current work schedule, you may enjoy this browser-based puzzle game, Cement Tower.

It’s an addictive mix of Tetris and Jenga with the welcome addition of explosions. The goal is simple: stack blocks up into the sky until one of them touches a strategically placed glowing star. You’ll need to battle the laws of physics and hovering helicopter mines along the way.

Touch a mine and your structure explodes, forcing you to start over. Fail to outwit gravity and your structure will topple to the ground. You have the ability to cement your current structure in place even as it’s falling over, although you’ll need to use your cement bags sparingly while attempting to pick bonus bags up along the way.

The first 10 levels are free to play, which ought to be enough to either get you hooked or remind that Tetris, Jenga, and architecture aren’t your strong suits. Additional 10-level packs run a buck apiece, for a total outlay of three bucks should you take on all 40 levels.
