The marvellous mosaic of patterns and colours in Tile Snap is really something to behold. But don’t let that beauty fool you – this game is harder than it looks.
In each stage you’re presented with a set of tiles: with simple swipes you’ll flip them to connect three or more of the same pattern and colour to remove them from the board. Once all the tiles are gone, the stage is cleared and you can move to the next puzzle.
Yet, if you don’t flip the tiles in the correct order, you’ll soon be stuck. The trick is to carefully look at the layout and the relationship between all the tiles before you begin. In essence, patience is key.
If you are stuck, you can tap the light bulb icon for a clue; and if you flip a wrong tile, use the back arrow to undo your move. But, while useful at times, it’s incredibly satisfying to complete a puzzle without using either of these features if you can.
The game’s constantly evolving and intricate design ensures that each puzzle you open appears as a fresh, interesting-to-the-eye challenge. Of course, the further you progress, the harder those puzzles become. Yet the game lets you decide the tempo, so you can relax into your own peaceful rhythm as you work out each puzzle.
Tile Snap features 50 levels, each with six stages. So there’s plenty to test your mind here – but there’s also plenty to help it unwind too.
