Tile Enigma is an incredibly challenging puzzle game that’s brand-new to the App Store. If you enjoy difficult games that test your problem solving skills, then Tile Enigma is definitely the perfect puzzle game for you.
Debuting on the App Store on January 15, Tile Enigma aims to be one of the most complex puzzle games you’re likely to play. The goal of the game is to carefully switch and flip double-sided tiles in order to line them up in the same color. Doing this reveals a gray stripe through the board, and the goal of the game is to reveal all of the stripes in the level.
To play Tile Enigma, you’ll have to tactically slide and invert squares on the board. Use one finger to slide it tile, and tap a row or column with two fingers in order to invert all of the tiles in that row or column. If you happen to run out of moves, you can either restart the level or add additional moves. There’s no penalty for restarting, and you can do so as many times as you want. However, Tile Enigma requires you to purchase additional moves via the in-game store if you run out of free ones.
While this might sound a bit easy, I can assure you that Tile Enigma is anything but simple. The game is very dynamic, and you’re required to use your best judgment in order to solve each puzzle in as few moves as possible.
In terms of numbers, Tile Enigma features 100 levels of increasing difficulty, all of which are divided across 5 different worlds. As you progress through worlds, additional skills and mechanics are introduced to the game. I really like the fact that Tile Enigma requires players to actively adapt to the game as they move through it.
Tile Enigma also includes a star rating system for levels, which is based on how quickly you’re able to solve the puzzle, as well as using as few moves as possible.
When it comes to atmosphere, Tile Enigma features gorgeous ambient background music and minimalistic graphics. It’s obvious that the developers have put a ton of time and effort into this great puzzle game, and it certainly shows.
Overall, Tile Enigma is a wonderful puzzle game for iPhone and iPad. It’s very challenging, though, so I don’t really recommend it for anyone looking for an easy puzzle game.
However, it’s not tough to learn the concept of the game, but it is difficult to get the hang of it at first. If a challenge like this doesn’t frighten you, I definitely recommend checking out Tile Enigma as soon as possible.
Tile Enigma requires iOS 8.1 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5, iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 Plus.
