It's not often I look at a product or service and say "I really really hope this isn't real, and it's an elaborate fake". Alas, this day has come.

Topplez: 3D Block Stacking with a Twist
Growing up in suburbia, I often played tabletop games with my family. One game of particular fondness in my household was Jynga. As an adult, I often wonder what it would be like play on a cell phone. Thanks to XDA Member kingofmyworld324 I’ve had that opportunity.
Called Topplez, kingofmyworld324 has taken the original wooden game and made it available with 3D graphics on WP7-based devices. What’s more, he’s taken things up a notch with:
Classic mode has you take blocks from the bottom and place them on top to make the tower as tall as possible in the shortest time possible but its gameover if the tower TOPPLEZ! Dice and Match3 modes each raise the difficulty and fun by adding a puzzle and strategy element to the game. Try to top our online scoreboards!

Head over to the original thread and enjoy yourself. It’s the little things that are most satisfying.
