Though his last potential outing on Apple's mobile platform was denied for being too "unpleasant," Yoot Saito is taking another stab at the App Store. According to TouchArcade, a rough translation of Saito's blog reveals that the idiosyncratic developer is bringing his skyscraper-crafting sim, The Tower, to the iPad.

For those unfamiliar with the series, The Tower (or, as its sometimes titled Sim Tower or Yoot Tower), is reminiscent of the SimCity series, only more ... vertical. Players are tasked with the construction and management of a tower, all the while pursuing that prestigious five-star ranking. We've got our fingers crossed for a U.S. release. Or, for that matter, any kind of release -- though we don't see how strategic building maintenance could be considered too off-putting for Apple's lofty standards.
