Explore the tallest buildings in the world!

Discover how people build, live, and play in skyscrapers. Go up and down, through every floor, and underground. Spark a blackout, fix a pipe, or clog the toilets. Test your building’s engineering when dinosaurs invade, lightning strikes, or the earth quakes. Find out what keeps skyscrapers standing tall and people happy in them all.

Skyscrapers is No. 7 in Tinybop’s Explorer’s Library series, designed to let kids explore the invisible and awesome wonders of our world. Apps in this series have been downloaded by more than 8 million kids across the globe and have won Parents’ Choice and Children’s Technology Review Editor’s Choice awards.

+ Explore skyscrapers from the ground, up to the roof.
+ Design each building’s facade and top with different colors, spires, clock towers, and more.
+ Investigate a building’s structure, from the foundation to the frame.
+ See how soil affects a building’s stability.
+ Test and observe your building’s engineering in lightning storms, earthquakes, and high winds.
+ Move people throughout the building: up and down in elevators, through bathrooms, and in and out of rooms.
+ Investigate the utilities: water, electricity, and safety features.
+ Save the building in emergencies! Put out fires and repair water breaks.
+ Turn lights on and off. Cause a blackout!

Editors’ Notes

What are those towers that touch the sky? Tinybop’s awesome sandbox teaches kids the fun way—by letting them build, watch, and play. As they add floors and test the effects of plumbing problems and earthquakes, they're actually learning basic design and engineering principles. Amazing details abound—from all the busy little inhabitants to the full-blown skyline you can make.

By crazy girl 500 I really like it but

The people in the app need to do stuff like sleep and eat and also maybe have a waiter who serve the food then it would be the best app in the world

A huge disappointment!

I downloaded the game because it looked fun, like on of those games that you take care of a hotel. When I got the game it was completely POINTLESS. No levels or points. You can even just make it as tall as you want with no coins or anything. SAVE YOUR MONEY! Don't but this game!!!😡😡😡🙄🙄🙄🙄
