Title: Sliding Tiles (Kindle Game App.)
Maker: Grabarchuk Puzzles
Review: This is a fun digital version of the old plastic sliding tile game. It reminded me of when we were kids and we got a little plastic square game in our stockings. The EASY version was fun and it didn’t take much brain power, but the next level brought it up and I struggled. I moved the tiles and then moved them back and back again. There is a hint button to help you along if you get confused what tile to move next. I used that a bit on the harder levels.
The HARD and MASTER levels are above me and yet interesting to try and think about. My kids have tried the EASY level and enjoyed the fun of figuring out which tile to move where. One of them laughed at me because they figured out a HARD puzzle before I could. This is a fun interactive game that really gets your brain evolved. My daughter is a visual learner and she had no problem with the MEDIUM level and is now working on the HARD level.
The only issue I have with the game is learning how to use the 5 way controller, on my Kindle with the keyboard, it was a challenge to know if you were moving the tile or just on the tile. I would rather just move the tiles my cursor is on without having to push the button twice to hold the tile you want to move. Practice makes perfect I guess, so other than that the game is quite enjoyable.
