Real-time 3D physics simulation, authentically recreating the behavior of a real wooden Jenga tower. Each block is realistically affected by the surrounding blocks, recreating the same strategic depth of the original game.
Anyone who’s played Jenga knows how delicate your touch needs to be. The iPad’s super-accurate touch screen gives you the control you’ll need to go for world record heights (incidentally… the record is 40 2/3 layers!). Blocks can be teased out using a mix of gentle tapping and drag controls. It’s easy to begin with, but you’ll soon find it tough when the pressure is on and the tower is wobbling!
Obviously the best part of Jenga is putting off your friends as they are making their move! The four-player Pass’n’Play mode truly reproduces the nail-biting tension of the real thing… but you can play it anywhere!
And what’s more, Jenga HD for iPad lets you compare your current tower height against that of friends around the world – while you play! A little friendly competition is the best motivator...
Jenga HD on iPad introduces a brand new mode: Jenga Arcade. Match colors for extra points and score multipliers by moving fast – but don’t topple the tower! While you play, you earn coins which you can spend on special boosts like collapse reverse, multipliers, and wildcards. It’s fast and frantic… totally turning Jenga on its head.
Jenga HD for iPad is beautiful. The iPad’s HD screen creates a life-size Jenga tower in your hands. Advanced wood shaders make the blocks pop out and let you gauge their stickiness. And everything is set in beautiful environments, rivalling the quality of modern games consoles.
GAME CENTER INTEGRATION
Like all titles from NaturalMotion Games, Jenga HD fully supports Apple’s Game Center including leaderboards, achievements and easy friend comparisons.
Designed in consultation with Leslie Scott, the inventor of Jenga, to create the most authentic Jenga experience ever.

What's New in Version 1.6.2
New in 1.6.2:
• Minor Bug Fixes
Online gameplay support forsaken
Great game, as long as you don't want to play online with a new device.
In my case, this is important to me. This app locks onto the UDID of your original device (long gone for me) so if you ever upgrade or change out your iPhone/iPad or want to also use another iOS device with your ID, you can NOT.
This lock-out also makes sure you cannot use the same account for two devices simultaneously.
I've written to NaturalMotion almost one year ago and they acknowledged the problem and have never taken steps to fix this. Why in the world does this app lock onto one UDID? Why not just Game Center? Ok it locks, so why can't you change the UDID as you need to? It's nuts, and they don't care to fix this.
Used to be a nice app
This game took me back to my childhood days. I love the flexibility of playing against other players online. I got a new device but was unable to transfer my account other apps do this flawlessly. When I wrote the developer they said there is no way to transfer accounts to another device I have not seen any attempts to fix this problem. I am dissatisfied having paid for both iPhone and iPad app of this game. So if you dare to get another device you will be out of luck And unable to log in again.
Glitchy: Needs Work
For example, oftentimes the screen gets frozen. One time, I had to exit the app and then manually shut the app down. Sometimes, the app gets stuck after selecting a piece and you can not select another piece. I've noticed that, one time, I couldn't let a piece go. Finally, I noticed that I couldn't "tap" a piece that was dropped on top of the pile to simply shift the piece after being dropped. Not good.
Finally, honestly, the game doesn't play realistically to me. So much so that it gets boring.
