London-based Sensible Object’s motto is “technology is meant to bring us together.” Their ultra-imaginative approach takes the traditional rulebook and tosses it out the window, in favor of marrying technology and mental games into one totally unique challenge.
This challenge we speak of is their very first (five star rated) game: Beasts of Balance. Simple enough to involve the whole family, but skilled enough for everyone to have fun and find new challenges, this Jenga-meets-Pokémon adventure starts with an electronic plinth that automatically syncs with your phone or tablet.
Choose from a pile of artifacts, stack your tower as high as possible, and watch yourself rack up the points on the accompanying app. Build the tallest tower you can, and you’ll fill your digital world with magical beasts—and don’t let it all come crashing down.
One of its greatest strengths? Besides seamlessly bridging the digital and physical worlds, it’s equally as fun to play solo or with a group of up to five players of any generation. Trust us when we say this is destined to become a family favorite.
