Piano Tiles officially brings its highly addictive gameplay to Windows Phone

Piano Tiles is an addictive, yet sometimes frustrating game now available on Windows Phone. Previously, only cloned copies were available, but the title was recently published on the Windows Phone Store under the developer's name. In fact, it's so official, the developer has even linked to this version on its website. So, what exactly does Piano Tiles provide players? As the name suggests, it's a game requiring players to tap piano tiles, but there's a twist – you're not to tap the white keys. It may sound simple enough, but it's not.

The goal is to tap each black piano tile as they scroll across the screen. Eighteen game modes are presently available in this release with some famous tracks included. Classic, arcade, zen, rush and relay modes ensure there's enough content to keep everyone returning, while Arcade+ takes the gameplay to the next level. Each mode offers a unique take and layouts differ per track, making it difficult to master without trial and effort.

We'd urge everyone to uninstall the clone they may have downloaded and show support for the original developer by downloading this release. We're sure with great support from the Windows Phone community they'll update the game in future. The studio even states on the app listing that improvements and updates are planned.

Let us know how you get on and what scores you manage to achieve.
