Tilemetry is a free game for iPhone and iPad that’s similar to puzzles like 2048 and Sudoku; it is a game that’s definitely worth trying if you enjoy challenging math puzzles.
Concept and Gameplay:
Tilemetry by Theodore Neustaedter is incredibly easy to learn, but difficult to master. There’s a very handy tutorial in the first level of the game that does a great job of showing new players the basics. As you progress, puzzles become harder to complete.
The goal of Tilemetry is to flip number tiles to solve equations. The fewer flips you use to complete the puzzle, the higher your score will be. Scores are tracked by stars and the ultimate goal is to solve every puzzle with three stars.
The interface of this game is very simple and free of distractions. This is definitely a puzzle game at heart and the focus is totally on gameplay, not fluff and other graphical nonsense. This is great news for anyone who just wants to sit and solve puzzles without extras.
The harsh truth about most games is that they’re often limited by levels. Once you finish all of the provided levels, you either have to spend money to unlock more or wait for the developer to release an update.
Luckily this isn’t the case with Tilemetry. There are different puzzle board sizes ranging from 2×2 to 9×9, and each board size includes 35 puzzles to solve.
For example, you can solve puzzles on a 2×3 board, 7×4 board, 9×8, and so on. I counted a total of 36 boards, meaning there are over 1200 puzzles to solve. You definitely won’t be able to blast through this game in a matter of a few hours.
Tilemetry is available to download from the App Store for free and is universally compatible with iPhone and iPad. You don’t have to worry about in-app purchases or unlocking extras to enjoy every feature of the game- there aren’t even ads to disturb you while you’re playing.
Tilemetry is a great puzzle game that offers countless hours of challenging gameplay. The number of puzzles to solve is astounding and the fact that it’s totally free makes it an impossible game to pass up.
Tilemetry requires iOS 8.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. A small expedited fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
