Everybody loves music and Piano Tiles will let you fall in love with it even more! Music is the soothing and pleasant combination of sounds that more often than not manages to evoke an emotional reaction from us. Sometimes that reaction is happy, content or whimsical. Sometimes it's melancholic, sad or regretful. All that takes a back seat when it comes to keeping the music going. Because that's your job in this game.
Tap the black piano keys as they come sliding across the screen. Every tile corresponds to a beat in the song playing in the background. So tuning in will help you win the game. Keep tapping each tile in the rhythm of the song and get carried away humming along. But don't lose focus. If you miss only a single tap, you're out. The game ends, and you will be left hanging. A song ringing in your head that you won't hear the end of.
This simple coupling of songs and taps is such a popular game idea, that it gained sudden and very wide-spread popularity in the early 2010s. Back then people could buy plastic replicas of musical instruments (mostly guitars, but later drums as well) and replay some of their favourite songs using those big fancy controllers, on a video game console of their choice.
With names like Guitar Hero and Rockband, this short-lived genre of music-based videogames struck a nerve and both popularized certain bands and songs, as well as encourage gamers to start their own band. While it's unlikely that Piano Tiles will have the same effect on you, it does let you scratch the same gaming itch, without having to spent piles of money on consoles, software and new controllers.
Practice your ear and sense of rhythm with songs both old and new. Will you finish them perfectly on the first try, or will you have to work your way through a number of failed attempts before achieving greatness? Much like practicing piano in real life, the sounds of single keys being struck in the same order again and again, will likely haunt you in your dreams. But that is the price to pay for musical greatness!
So get your fingers nimble and hone your reflexes. Hit the keys just right and the music will keep on playing. Miss a beat and you will fail bitterly, knowing that the fault lies with you and you alone. Are you ready for Piano Tiles?
