Translation Building

By the legend, you are building Babylon Tower, but God mixed all languages,
and builders hadn't understand each other.

And your task is to help builders to build tower. An each building stage builder says a phrase, which contains the needed for building objects , but in incomprehensible language. And you must translate it to continue building.

Luckily, you have translation dictionary (in right). And you can find there symbols
translation. At the end, you should find which symbol equals to building object.

And you have time for each stage. If time ends, building piece is being built, but it's fragile. If you build 3 fragile pieces - the tower falls! Don't let it!

Great game idea ! The babel tower is the heart of the story so the theme is well respected.
I really liked your game, which finaly require a lot of memory work. Very fun concept. GG!

Pros:

  • Love, love love the concept for this game, it's original, and fits the theme perfectly.
  • The translation mechanic is suprisingly intuitive, and I found myself able to efficently translate the symbols before long. It's very satisfying when I can look at a symbol and say "It's wood!!!" straight away.

Cons:

  • The art is pretty weak here. I know it doesn't affect gameplay, but the art for the tower peices looks childish, and would improve the feel a lot if it was cleaned up.
  • The game ends too soon, being able to place only 7 pieces is far too little, I'd like to play more.

Wonderful! Frumoasa! すごいよ!No matter what language you use, it's a great game. Well done!

@Wazz Many thanks for your feedback! :D
Art was made in a furry and last of all (especially tower; yes, it's really bad) :P

Really awesome mechanic. I loved all the levels of translation and I can see this getting really complex if you had things like symbol combinations or symbols splitting into more symbols to the levels above it, it just makes me excited and wondering why there aren't more translation games lol. I wish there was a win screen but more than that I wish I could've kept going ;p

Cool idea, and the Tower of Babel was a good pull for this theme. I like the core idea of learning what symbols mean and how they relate together which worked really well for me. Figuring it all out was a joy. Good job!

I love the idea. The game is fun and quick.

Would have been cool to push use the keyboard number to select the elements

For real, i's great, next time try to fit some time for a real tittle screen and an end card.

Great execution, I love puzzle game.

Keep it up!
