Lets be honest, sometimes it's not hard to understand why people shy away from games that call themselves "puzzles", because ultimately few people enjoy the idea of being frustrated working out solutions. TileStorm by Massive Hadron walks a thin line between fun and frustration with its tile-sliding puzzles that you'll either love or loathe.
Manipulating puzzles couldn't be easier and play much like a regular tile-sliding puzzle. The trick here is to maneuver the pieces to form a path that the "Eggbot" can follow to the end. Further complexity is added to the mix by the inclusion of irregularly shaped zones to move the tiles in. This then splits the puzzle into requiring two solutions involving knowing the correct path and the correct tile manipulation.
Massive Hadron certainly can't be accused of a lack of content, packaging in 100 maps that will take considerable time to complete. There are four different 3D environments to enjoy while playing the game though the low resolution texturing for the small download is evident. However the tradeoff isn't just a smaller game size, but also much smoother gameplay.
Hardcore puzzle fans will definitely dig the challenge inherent in TileStorm, but it may require some testing for more casual gamers. As with any real puzzle game your mileage may vary, but the game's polish will always shine through.
DescriptionTileStorm is an extremely addictive puzzle adventure game. With over one hundred unique levels and puzzles, TileStorm is guaranteed to keep you and your friends busy for quite some time and represents excellent value for money. TileStorm has beautifully detailed graphics and excellent interactive properties which mean that playing TileStorm is not only fun and rewarding, but it is also a pleasure to look at and play.
The idea of TileStorm is to solve a series of puzzles enabling 'Eggbot' the robot to make his way through each respective level to the exit. The first puzzles are very similar in appearance and strategy to traditional sliding puzzle games, but later in TileStorm players will encounter tiles with completely different properties, maps with multiple solutions, and levels requiring the re-use of certain tiles. As people play through TileStorm they will find that TileStorm is much more than just a sliding tile game and strategies required in many other games will be needed to complete this game. TileStorm is guaranteed to present a challenge to anyone that plays it and it will require real skill and mental dexterity to complete. TileStorm is set in four beautifully presented themes starting with Industrial then followed by Egypt, Medieval and Jungle. Every themed area has a range of levels of difficulty of puzzles, but you will need to complete all the puzzles in each area before you can progress to the next area. A lot of people that have played TileStorm have said that it will particularly appeal to people that like puzzle and adventure games like Pipe Mania, Blocked, Bobby Carrot, Archibald Adventure's, Soduko, Tetris and many more. TileStorm combines elements from many of these games. We are confident that you will find TileStorm an extremely enjoyable challenge and a 'must have' game.

'I have had loads of fun with TileStorm, and it is really rewarding to complete a puzzle that has kept me stumped for hours.'
Torbjorn Kamblad - TouchGen
'I have to say I have tons of games on my iphone, but this one is the best so far. I have been playing it for several days and it is not only challenging, but definitely a great "time-killer." (My family keeps telling me to put the phone down! The graphics are great and I love the fact that I haven't finished the game in a few hours like I typically do! Definitely worth the investment. The support on this game is excellent. I had an email question and it was responded to immediately! Keep it up and make more games like this!'
