Insurgo is a superb, physics-based tower building game, and a fun and realistic structure building activity for all the family (Find out who are the “engineers of the future” in your family or class!). The goal in this brain-teaser is to build the highest and most stable tower possible. It has to be perfectly balanced in order to remain stable and survive. Build as high as you can; watch your tower wobble in the wind; try not to let it overbalance, and cringe if it collapses to the ground! When your tower falls, you lose the game. You can see the tower height and your score at the top of the game screen. Happy building, and mind your head!
How To Play: Point your computer mouse near the bolt to see a blue line coming from the bolt. Click the Left button on your mouse to add a new pylon in the place of a blue line. Because your pylon has just one connecting point, it has just one way to swing – downwards. Don‘t let this happen as it will end the game and you will have to start again. It is best to place your first two or three pylons vertically to give you some time for the next connection before it swings downward. Quickly point at a nearby bolt and watch for a green line, and then Click again to see how it makes a triangle-shaped part. Now you can put another pylon on the opposite side, and form another triangle the same way. To make these building parts more stable, inter-connect them with additional pylons. In order to do that, click on a bolt and point your mouse to another bolt that you wish to connect to. Simply click your mouse to join them together.
If bolts you are trying to connect together are too far from each other, the line will go red. Simply click on the blue marked bolt to deselect it, and create a new pylon using the blue line. Build intermediary triangles to make extra connecting points for green lines. Blue lines are shorter but they are “free build” while green lines are double the length but can only go from bolt to bolt. Triangle connections are the most stable. To delete pylons, use SHIFT and Click. Get your “Creative Thinking Safety Helmet” on and start building for the future!
