How steady is your hand? What about your hearing? Are you able to listen and follow instructions? In the game Topple Off from Ideal, you will soon find the answers to those questions.
Topple Off is an electronic game of balancing and reaction for solo play or multiple players, aged 8+ and it is a game that is very addictive. It is a simple game to learn, but one that is difficult to master and beat.
In the box:
- Topple Off Handle and Orb
- 4x Base Plates
Topple Off is an electronic game and requires 3x AA batteries to play (batteries are not supplied). It is a game that requires a steady hand, good listening skills and being able to follow instructions. The idea of the game is to listen to and follow Topple Off’s voice commands to place the Topple Off handle and orb on the correct base plate. Sounds easy, doesn’t it? It is to begin with, but as the instructions speed up, they start to get more confusing, and the game becomes much more difficult and lots more fun. Would you be able to keep up without making the orb topple off?
- 4 different games (2 solo, 2 multiplayer)
- Play solo or with friends
- Follow the voice commands
- Addictive play, can you get the highest score?
- Requires 3x AAA batteries (not included)
Topple Off is a game a single player game but it does have a multiplayer option. The idea of the game is to follow the voice instructions and place the Topple Off handle on to the correct base plate as instructed without the orb toppling off the handle. It starts out nice and easy, quite sedately in fact, but as the game increases in speed so does the difficulty, the instructions get faster and more confusing, and it becomes harder to keep the orb on the handle.
To play, the base plates are placed about 25cm apart from each other (you can use the box to help space them). The Topple Off handle (which has a speaker built-in) is then placed on the circular-shaped base plate to select the mode that you want to play in. When the game mode has been selected, the handle is placed on the triangular-shaped base plate to start the game. Follow the voice instructions to play the game.
There are 4 different modes that you can choose from to play: Challenge Solo, Challenge Multi, Sequence Solo and Sequence Multi. And for those that don’t like lots of noise, there are 3 different volume levels.
Overall, I think that Topple Off is a fun, challenging and exciting game. The concept is simple, just listen to the voice instructions and place the handle where instructed, without making the orb fall off. Once those instructions start to get faster, the challenge becomes more frantic. It is a fun game to challenge yourself and your friends.
Whilst the game is easy enough to play, the game itself is very hard to beat, especially when the commands get faster and harder to keep up with. Trying to keep up with the commands and moving the handle fast enough without causing the orb to topple off is a frantic frustratingly fun challenge – patience is key but trying to keep your calm while the voice commands and movements are getting faster all the time is an addictive and hard task.
As mentioned earlier, it requires 3x AA batteries to play. As batteries can be expensive, it does have a battery saving feature to prolong battery life, if the game is left inactive for a few minutes the game will go into sleep mode, helping to prolong battery life.
Topple Off is a fun, exciting and challenging game. It is excellent fun to play as a solo game and just as fun as a multiplayer game, perfect for challenging yourself, friends and family.
