What happens if the tower that collapses takes others down with it?

That's why people have to announce the height of each tower as they place their block: so that they will (hopefully) remember how high the highest other tower was, if it too gets knocked over in the carnage.

Other than that, no difference: it's still basically that the knocking-over player scores 0 no matter how many towers they take down collaterally, while everyone else scores.

Shame, 'cause I could have entirely seen a player who knew they were about to place the losing block attempting to do so such that another tower (or towers) went down in the resulting mess ;)

Mm, I thought that would be a bit too easy as a spoiler tactic!

You need to change the name

I played Rainbow towers as a kid, and they are still selling it!

I've learnt, sadly, that every good title for a game has already been used by someone. These days I'm happy to just ignore it if it's not in a competing market niche.
