Much like similarly-styled games like Flappy Bird and 2048 before it, Piano Tiles promises a one-punch game-style that is very much suited for those who like gaming on the go.
And while its main objective sounds pretty simple and easy – just keep on touching the black tiles as it goes down on your screen, avoiding the white tiles along the way – it’s actually much harder than it looks.
And so, for those of you who are finding it a bit hard to keep up with the game’s pace, here are five tips and tricks to help you coast through Piano Tiles.
FIVE TIPS AND TRICKS IN PLAYING PIANO TILES
Patience and practice never went out of style.
In any game that you play, these two principles are certainly not amiss to keep in mind. Piano Tiles is all about quick reflexes and keen senses.
The only way you can keep an eye on those black tiles and have the swift hands to tap them all is to keep on playing the game. In this way, you can slowly develop your own style of play.
But don’t forget to rest!
Yes, we know you need to practice. Yes, we know you just want to play one more game. Yes, we know it’s addictive and its keeping you late at night.
But if you lack sleep, your body won’t be functioning in that most optimal level it can strive to be – this will get your reflexes knackered and make you prone to more mistakes. At that rate, you won’t get reach that high score you so yearn to beat.
Change it up.
People tend to stick to the norm or what they’re used to. For mobile phone users, they play using their thumbs, or for tablet users, their pointing fingers.
But if you find that tapping on that screen with multiple fingers keeps you on top of the game, they why not continue on with it. This works especially great for those gamers on tablets, with the bigger commanding space allowing for more fingers to be used.
Relax and maintain focus.
It’s no use playing the game if you can’t focus on it. Find a spot where you can sit or lie down comfortably while playing. If you’re not a fan of noises, then make sure your game spot is comfy and quiet.
Remember that being tense won’t help things. All the more, it will just make you more prone to making mistakes.
Never focus on just the last line.
It will be instinct for first-time players to focus on the last line or second to the last line of tiles to know where to tap. This won’t be of much help in the long run because as the tiles cascade faster, you won’t have enough time to see the black tile and have the reflex to touch it before you miss it altogether.
This is where your practice will come in handy. Try playing “Classic” first and see how you can develop your game. While doing this, try to make full use of your peripheral vision and see where the next black tile will land. This way, you won’t run out of time should the black tile finally appear.
