TapTiles is a free 3D puzzle game for Windows 8 in which you need to match identical tiles with a unique twist. The twist is that if you can’t find the match, you can rotate the provided 3D puzzle to view other side of the puzzle. TapTiles is a very addictive and fun matching game.

This game provides three different modes to play: Dash, Origins and Relaxation.

  • In Origins mode, a timer is set. You start the game with one minute on the clock. Each puzzle completed earns you extra time.
  • In Relaxation mode, tile must be left open either from the left side or from the right side to be selectable. It contains many groups of puzzle within the same puzzle. Solve as many puzzles as you can without the pressure of time in this mode.
  • Dash mode contains the rules of both the above modes: Origin mode, and Relaxation mode.
