Raise human towers wise and bravely.
If you have ever been to Catalonia (region at the North East of Spain) perhaps you have seen "castells", a sort of awe-inspiring human towers raised by men and women, adults and kids together to the beat of a peculiar music played with metal wind instruments called "grallas". If you have never been there, it's a good time to, at least, look up some videos in Youtube, because it's an amazing tradition worthy of admiration.
iCastellers allows you to raise one of those human castles through balance and spirit, this means, tilting your device and tapping on the coach character to give orders to your team. Your goal is to raise the full proposed tower, keep it without falling down ("llenya!") and take it down. You'll start with easy towers and as you achieve to raise them, you'll unlock more difficult ones until the mighty "4d10f". Don't worry if you don't know the terminology, because not only there's a quick and comprensible guide, but also the wonderful graphic design helps a lot with icons and symbols. That is, there is no need to know a thing about "castells" to play this great and entertaining game.
In addition, besides the great gameplay and the number of stages, there are several nice touches which will be deeply appreciated: the game detects your position to use a day or night background scenery; it's translated to Catalan, Spanish, English and Japanese and the music you can hear when playing it's the same hypnotic tune you could hear to if you were in a Catalan square staring at a "castell". The option to have that tune as a ringtone is absolutely appreciated, and a thing that other developers should duly noted.
In the end, a game about half patience and half determination, suited for all ages. We appreciate it's great originality and, by the way, that a local developer has been able to create a game based on local folklore. Strongly recommended to everyone, everywhere.
Play this addictive and challenging game! Test your balance capabilities and don't let the human towers fall!
(limited version of the game, with ads)
These towers have traditionally been built as part of annual festivities in Catalonian towns and cities since the 19th century. In these festivities, several teams, called "colles castelleres", try to build and dismantle the most impressive towers they can. "Castells" were inscribed in 2010 on the UNESCO's Representative List of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
Would you like to build those impressive Human Towers? In iCastellers, you can create your own personalized team ("Colla castellera"), with its own name and shirt color.
Unlock towers in the Training mode, and try to build them in the Exhibition mode, where you can score points to be the first ranked team in the leaderboard. And don't forget to complete all the available achievements! Discover them and compete creating an account in OpenFeint.
Like the "Castellers" motto says: "Strength, balance, courage and common sense!". Simple gameplay! Tap on the "Colla" leader to order "castellers" climbing up or down, and tilt your device to keep the "castell" balanced.

Els castells són torres humanes que tradicionalment s'han construit com a part de les festes majors de les ciutats i pobles d'arreu de Catalunya des del segle XIX. En aquestes festes, les diferents colles castelleres intenten carregar i descarregar els castells més impressionants que són capaçes de construir. Els castells van ser reconeguts per la UNESCO com a Patrimoni Cultural Immaterial de la Humanitat l'any 2010.
