Solid Balance is an excellent game that will test the steadiness of your hands and block stacking abilities. The general rule is that no piece must touch the wooden floor at any time. You can use the mouse to place a block, and rotate it by left or right clicking.

The higher your structure, the more points you earn. There's a time limit to place each block, and the next piece is always shown on the top left so that advanced players can plan ahead. Pressing the T key is a quick way to end the game.

Unfortunately the trial version is very limiting, because most of the fun lies in building tall structures that reach for the skies. There's a color rule option for stacking experts that is disabled in the demo as well, where the game ends if two blocks of the same color touch each other.
