App description: The rules for Tile Drop are simple: Swipe. Match. Remove. Win!

1) Swipe to move ALL tiles in the swipe direction
2) Match colored tiles to remove them
3) Remove all colored tiles within the move limit to win.

Sound easy? The give it a try.

This first update comes with 3 Challenge Puzzle Packs containing 24 puzzles each. Complete these to unlock the Mini-Pack generator and create you own mini-packs to earn hints.

The fun doesn't stop there. Tile Drop also includes the editor that I used to make the game so you can add your own puzzles to the Tile Drop puzzle pool and earn hints!

Thanks for posting this, Echoseven.

The fun in Tile Drop is the thought process. It's hard to portray this in screenshot or a video. During testing one of my friends would spend up to 40 minutes trying to solve just one of the 10 move (and most difficult) puzzles.

The game is free and there is IAP to buy extra hints. However, I've been quite generous in the other ways you can earn hints for free within the game.

I've included a couple more videos to try and demonstrate the game and it's polish. The first is just video of me playing 4-move puzzles. The second is me running through the game as a new player and discussing various elements along the way.

I urge you to download it and give it a try as it's a fun game and you won't be disappointed.

So anyway, after an initial surge and then dying a death, Apple gave Tile Drop a small feature in New & Noteworthy of the Puzzle and Board game sections. Tile Drop is slowly climbing and it's got a perfect 5-star rating so far.

I know it doesn't look very exciting, but believe if you like puzzle games you'll love it. Try it out, it's free after all.

Thanks. Yes, for the puzzles with more moves there any many more combinations to try. I have a friend that was spending up to 40 minutes on one 10-move puzzle. That's dedication.
