Tiki Towers is a puzzle game similar to World of Goo. With the help of a group of five monkeys the player has to construct towers with the use of a limited amount of bamboo sticks. The monkeys then use the towers to climb to the exit as long which requires that the structure is strong enough to handle their weight. The monkeys can jump but only short distances. The main aim is to get all monkeys to the exit and the player is then awarded with a silver mask. It is also possible to get a golden mask by collecting all bananas on a level.
The game contains five islands. On each island there are nine levels to complete. Islands are unlocked by collecting masks.
