In the latter half of the 19th century, Canastota, NY postman, Noyes Chapman invented a simple puzzle. It was a tray of tiles. Each with a number on it. One to 15, arranged in a 4 by 4 grid. The final, sixteenth tile was missing, allowing the tiles to be shuffled around the board to be mixed and then returned to the correct position to solve the puzzle. With this simple construction, a craze was born! Everyone from the man on the street to heads of state became obsessed with this little puzzle. A modern day equivilent would be the Rubik's cube of today.
Tiles will bring this obsession and fun to your iPhone or iPod Touch, but better than Noyes Chapman ever imagined! Tiles brings you not just one type of the sliding tile puzzle but 4 different variations ranging from an easy 3x3 to a grandmaster 6x6 board. Instead of just numbers, it uses photos from your photo library or the iPhone's built-in camera to form the tiles! Your job is to slide the tiles around and re-assemble the photo!
Tiles makes a great way to entertain your children, or the child within you when you're sitting outside a doctor's office, or riding the bus to work, or just sitting in your back yard enjoying a leisurely afternoon. It's fun, and challenging, and always new and stimulating.
See if you can re-assemble the photo in the least number of moves or the fastest time possible! Challenge your friends to beat your time! Choose from an infinite number of images you create yourself, or take a photo on the spur-of-the-moment and make a new puzzle now.
In keeping with our company mission, we will be donating 5% of the net pre-tax profits for Tiles to charity. The selected charity for Tiles will be to benefit autism.
