TileStorm 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.

Packed with Puzzles, Enjoyable to Play
Among the tile-sliding puzzles out there, this is the most entertaining I've played. Your objective of mapping out a path for the "Eggbot" character to reach the other end seems simple enough, until the "sticky" tile levels come along. Though the difficulty with the sticky tiles can be a bit harrowing at times, it's certainly not impossible. With the option of a selectable "easy mode" not only are the sticky tile's stickiness disabled (unstuck), but you can also play any puzzle at random (otherwise, in Hard Mode, you have to unlock a theme of puzzles before proceeding to the next group). Though there is a timer displayed (not a time-limited endeavor), it's just an informative item revealing time spent till solved. Overall, I really liked this game on the iPhone, but now that it's iPad-savvy it's much more enjoyable to look at and interact with. I'm hoping for more from this developer for the iPad.
Ooooh, this makes me people jealous of my iPad!!!
I loved this game on my iPhone 4 and I couldn't help but want to play it on the big screen. Well worth it. I only want to play it on iPad now. And sometimes, even with beautiful retina games, the animation doesn't seem to move at a perfect refresh rate on some iPad games. An example of that is Ridge Racer for iPad. The PSP version runs smoother and faster that on iPad. But this game, however, suffers no such fate. Runs absolutely elegantly and amazingly on the iPad. It's like I'm really there. First rate iPad casual game!!!!!!!!
Eggscellent Eggbot Adventure / Puzzler
The above review is excellent and I don't have a lot to add. For those that are deciding between iPhone and iPad, the HD graphics are real eye candy in the iPad version.
Is it worth "double dipping?" If graphics are important, then the HD is a huge improvement over 2x doubled mode. The iPad version also has convenient links to solving the puzzle if you are stuck not present on the iPhone version.
IPhone version does have Open feint that is not currently in the HD version.
One of the better adventure puzzlers out there with a lot of puzzles, good difficulty progression, wonderful graphics and a very good and intuitive UI.
