Play OverviewPlay Overview

Find the Balance (2018) is a puzzle game where you stack awkwardly shaped objects - stones, boxes, bananas. You place these items to create stable towers by planning, selecting and rotating objects before cutting the line and dropping them gently.

There are over 100 levels that can be played in a range of modes:
  • Single-player modes: classic, stars, endless, auto-fall single.
  • Multiplayer modes: adding blocks, speed stack, auto-fall multi.

The combination of simple stacking and the game's physics make this enjoyable and accessible for the family to play together.
