AusGamer: Three quarters of an hour into my first game in Babel Rising’s ‘Survival’ mode on the first tower, I realised that I wasn’t going to fail unless I did so on purpose. I’d steered clear of the ‘Easy’ option; having thus far found the campaign a bit dull, I was looking for something a bit more stimulating. I did not find it. Getting a high score on this, the first of three towers, was clearly going to be a case of endurance rather than skill. The other two unlockable towers are certainly more difficult to defend, but spending what turned out to be a full hour straight on the Ziggurat was a great way to come to grips with the game’s misguidedness.
