Family Friendly Gaming was provided a download code for Tilelicious
on the Wii U. This downloadable only home console video game is similar
to 2048. There is one major difference in Tilelicious. It does not limit
itself to numbers and doubling. There are letter tiles in Tilelicious.
Two 'A' tiles create one 'B' tile. Two '1' tiles create one '2' tile.
Then the two '2' tiles create one '3' tile. Eventually players have
images only to match.
Tilelicious has a larger game play area than 2048. Tilelicious is also on the Wii U. The colorful and diverse tiles are what will really appeal to families. Each area on the map contains a different theme. The levels start really easy in Tilelicious. Around the half way point they start to get a little tougher. Which means you could actually lose a level. Making matches of the same tile is very important.
If you are familiar with the concept of 2048, then you should have no problem playing and controlling Tilelicious. Press left, right, up, or down on the D-pad to move all of the tiles that direction. Avoid trapping lower tiles or you will fail a level. Meaning avoid getting '1' and 'A' tiles hidden deep under other tiles. There are certain strategies to this kind of a video game. The more you play the better you should get. At times the more I played the worse I did. That was only true when I was stuck in a level.
The music in Tilelicious is catchy. In fact it can get in your head and almost mesmerize those within earshot. The artwork in Tilelicious is nice. It is a game that is very approachable by children. I did not find any offensive images or sounds while playing Tilelicious on the Wii U. The learning aspect of letters and numbers is pretty neat to report on too.
The only change I want to see from Tilelicious is the price. As I write this review Tilelicious is selling for $5.99. A little high in my personal opinion. A drop of a dollar or two would make Tilelicious a much better deal for families. My hope is Tilelicious will go on sale in the future. Tilelicious is also not too large to tax your Internet ISP usage plan. I like the idea behind Tilelicious, and its execution.
