If you’re at work, better get that important task done now before reading any further in this post. I’m about to torpedo your chances of ever getting anything worthwhile done during office hours. Really.
It’s a Facebook application called Tower Bloxx, which started life as a mobile game before being converted to run on the social network’s apps platform. To play, you just click the mouse to drop a block, then again to drop one on top of it, and so on. If your aim’s off, your tower starts swaying about like a drunken navvy.
And better still, it ties in seamlessly with your Facebook contacts, compiling a dynamic high-score table of all your friends’ scores, and showing their mugshots at the side of the play area when your tower overtakes them. It’s truly, wondrously ace. I’m on 73 blocks and can’t stop playing it.
