I was searching the Google Play Store for a good game to play in the puzzle genre, since you know puzzle games are my all new favorite genre. A few days ago i reviewed the game Two Dots, one of the best puzzle games that i have played, and now i review a game, of which i am not really sure what to call it since on my launcher screen the name is Piano Tiles, while on the Google Play Store page the game is called Don’t Tap the White Tile and has been developed by Hu Wen Zeng. For making things easy let us call this game Piano Tiles Game.
This gem of a game is seriously addictive and now i am actually in competition with one of my best friends and development partner in my company, to who can hit the most tiles in the least amount of time. So far i am loosing, but i will never give up!!!! Your going down pal!!!!
How Do You Play Piano Tiles?
Piano Tiles Game is not exactly a puzzle game, but you can say it kind of falls into it, but not so much. In this game you have tiles of two colors, black and white, hence the name Piano Tiles.
There are a number of modes in this game, ranging from trying to beat your lowest time, to amassing the most piano tiles. The player must also have really good hand/finger eye coordination as you have to tap the black tile and not hit the white tile at an cost or the game will be over.
There have been times when i am going so fast, that i feel that my hand is moving on its own following the black tiles and tapping them out of existence. The first time this happened it was quite freaky, and i was like WOAH!!! , what did just happen here. Maybe it has something to do the brain controlling the hand movements, this is what i have come up with but i am not a medical student so i may be totally wrong here.
As you tap the piano tiles you collect them and then when the game is over you can continue to play the game if you have enough piano tiles from where you left of.
This continue feature is useful when you are playing the mode in which you collect the tiles and are not trying to beat the lowest time, as then the time just ads up because the time is not rest to zero when you continue.
In the Arcade mode the screen also scrolls so the user has to keep up with the movement or the player will loose if a black tile is missed. In this mode there are different speeds at which you can play the game, and there is also a reverse mode where the screen is moved from top to bottom, which is a bit disorienting as we are more used to bottom to top games rather than top to bottom.
The graphical art is pretty simple and two tone black and white color, but this game does not require high-fi art because the game play and style of the game are what makes the game really interesting, addictive and fun. Any more art will surely add hindrance to the player.
I highly recommend this game, and this is one game you surely want to have with you to pass your time, and believe me that you will not even know where your time went.
