tiler app – Review

January 26, 2010

If you are looking to immerse yourself into a beautiful and relaxing puzzle game, you should check out this slider puzzler, however it is let down by the lack of additional difficulty modes.



Some games wow with their content and some games wow with their concept. The game “tiler” wow-ed us with its elegant and sleek graphics. “tiler” is a smooth take on the classic slider puzzle game by tattooed orange. There is nothing really special about the slider game, it is after all an old classic game some might remember playing when they were young and getting really frustrated with it. It is a simple game and tiler does take it in a right direction by giving it very beautiful graphics, making this simple game a pleasure to play with.

The game starts off like the real slider toy, “Slide to Open”, giving you a breathe of the visual experience you will be expecting already. The game offers you several skins to enhance this visual treat, and even a night mode for playing at night.

Everything flows so elegantly in this game, while on the night mode, the time menu changes to the dark version too. Oh, and did I say to activate the night mode you actually have to flick a light switch?

Even the highscore table is a visual treat; there is a highscore table of your most recent finishes and an online table of the best finishes. I would appreciate if they kept your best finishes locally too, however the local scores table is of recent finishes.

There isn’t really anything else to write about this game, because after all, it is a slider puzzler. My major gripe about this game is the lack of difficulty mode. There is only one difficulty present and after awhile, you feel as-if you are playing the same thing over and over again. Including difficulty levels will certainly help the game alot in terms of re playability and challenge. My minor gripe include the lack of local highscores, but instead they sort by recent scores, so you cant keep track of your best timings and moves used.


– Aesthetically pleasing game; feels and plays very polished

– Simple, fast, pick-me-up game


– Lack of varying difficulty modes

– Highscore table can be improved

If you are looking to immerse yourself into a beautiful and relaxing puzzle game, you should check out this slider puzzler, however it is let down by the lack of additional difficulty modes.

Notes: I have spoken to the developer of tiler, and he mentioned that additional difficulty levels will be included in the next update, along with more skins, added sounds, facebook and twitter integration. I will give a reupdate of this review when the update is launched!

Tiler (Version reviewed: 1.0.0; Price as of review: $0.99)
