About This Review

I Was Asked to Review This Game

TileBreaker is a fun Android puzzle game. Two German developers made the game. They asked me to review the game on Twitter. A quick reminder of my Twitter account is @AndroidGamingFX.

I Decided to Play the Game!

I decided to play the game and write a review as they asked nicely and it gives me something to cover.

Gameplay Review

How Did I Review the Game?

I played the game on my LG V20 smartphone. My phone is starting to get older at almost three old but still going strong! I need to replace my batteries recently, though.

I played the game until world one level 32. I got stuck on a level, and it was going to take some time to beat. I felt like this was a good place to stop and start writing the review.

What Kind of Game Is Tilebreaker?

TileBreaker is a game about solving puzzles. You move your character around to touch all tiles to solve puzzles. The difficulty of this game is touching the tiles in the correct order, so you don’t miss any.

The Game Has a Nice Difficulty Curve

The game starts easy and slowly gets harder. The later puzzles in the first world were quite hard. But the game felt fair as well.

The Hints Did Not Help Too Much

I know the developer wants to make sure the hints don’t give away the whole answer. I can respect that. But I think the hints should reveal more than one tile. That alone does not help too much.

I Liked the Different Types of Tiles

It was fun to see the different types of tiles in the game. One tile made your character do a long jump, and there was one type of tile you needed to jump on twice.

These two tiles made the puzzles quite interesting and harder to solve. I hope in future worlds and future updates the developers add more.

Tilebreaker Level 31

The Game Is Simple but Still Fun

I was somewhat worried that with such a simple concept would grow old and stale. But the developers did a good job at making each puzzle a fun experience.

There can be many small and fun games based on very simple concepts. Not every Android game needs to be a huge epic.

I am biased here though because as I have gotten older, I tend to want to play huge games less and smaller games (games that are fun to play for about 30 minutes to an hour) more.

Presentation Review

The Game Looks OK

The game has Voxel like cube graphics. I don’t see this style too often in the mobile games I play often.

The game looks OK. I tend to prefer a more colorful 2D style. Of course, I am not saying a 3D based game can’t look good. The art style is good for what the developers are trying to show.

The Characters Look Odd When Jumping

I know this is extremely nitpicky, but when your character jumps, it looks odd. More animation would make the jumps look more lifelike.

I Played With the Arctic Fox Character

There are multiple characters you can choose from. I unlocked the Arctic Fox as soon as possible. Website mascot of course. The other characters looked nice.

The Menu Music Is Good

The game is very light on sound. There are bits of music and some ambient sounds in the levels. I like the main menu song, and it would be nice to hear more songs like this in the game.

The Sounds Don’t Add Too Much to the Game

I played most of the game while muted as I often played during my lunch breaks at work. When I did turn on the sounds, I did not feel like I was missing much.

I know that comes off as somewhat harsh, but I don’t think the sounds in this game add much to the experience.

Spending Factor Review

You Can Pay Money to Remove Ads in the Game

You can pay about $1 (USD) to remove ads in the game. This is a fair price for a purchase like this.

You Can Buy Coins

You can also buy coins. You use coins for hints and to unlock new characters. You can earn more coins from watching videos after beating levels.

These Are Fair Purchases

This is an extremely fame, but they don’t show while playing the game. If you are going to earn money on a mobile game with ads, please don’t interrupt the gameplay! Show them after levels or before starting them.

Also the price the remove ads is very fair, and I support developers who use this payment method. It only costs about $1 (USD). That is a small price to pay to support a developer.

Annoyance Level Review

There are ads in the game, but they don’t show while playing the game. If you are going to earn money on a mobile game with ads, please don’t interrupt the gameplay! Show them after levels or before starting them.

Also the price the remove ads is very fair, and I support developers who use this payment method. It only costs about $1 (USD). That is a small price to pay to support a developer.

Overall Thoughts

Overall TileBreaker is a very fun game. TileBreaker lets you have fun without interruptions. I look forward to seeing what the developers do with this game and what they do with future projects.

A 4 star review makes the AndroidGamingFox happy

Will I Keep on Playing Tilebreaker?

No. I will not play TileBreaker anymore. The fact is as an Android game reviewer I have too many games to cover to stick with most of the games I review. I did enjoy playing the game, though.

Do I Recommend Tilebreaker?

Yes, I recommend playing TileBreaker. It is a fun game that respects your rights to have fun and enjoy the game without too many interruptions or annoyances.ir purchase model.

Nothing is required, and everything is optional. I wish more developers would use a similar model.
