Lumiappaday #71: Orientile on the Nokia Lumia 800

| January 25, 2012 | 1 Reply

Orientile is logic based game that involves alot more thinking than your average tic-tac-toe game, the concept of the game revolves around surrounding tiles with bamboo sticks; once two consecutive tiles are completely surrounded you gain points for the two enclosed tiles.

Orientile is a turn-by-turn game, where each opponent tries to be as useless as possible to the other player, preventing them from placing the final bamboo stick surrounding the two tiles; each point/tile-won is marked by a different piece of sushi that along with the avatars dressed in kimonos (Japanese robes for those who don’t know), give the game a nice Japanese/Oriental feel (hence the name ORIENTile).

Orientile is free at the marketplace, and is definitely recommended for anyone who enjoys difficlt logic games (*Caution* it WILL get extremely difficult/frustrating).

#71) Orientile

Price: Free




Developer Blurb:

“Orientile should not be missed in your tap-library.” —

“It will keep you busy for countless hours.” —

In response to popular demand, Beautiful Mind Games is introducing Orientile — another fun, yet challenging puzzle inspired by the classic game of Squares.

• Connect dots with lines and make two-square rectangles (“tiles”), trying to claim more squares than your opponent.

• Test your skills against the computer or challenge a friend.

• Track your performance over time and submit your grades to online leaderboards.

• Start with an empty play field or let the computer make your first moves for you. • Leave the game unfinished and come back later to complete it.

• Computer cheats? Use the playback feature to see what actually happened.

• Express yourself — choose your player’s character.

WARNING: this is NOT the traditional game of Squares. Once you understand the concept of “tiles”, it will make sense.

Great simple game — easy to learn and fun to play, but hard to master. Brought to you by the developers of the popular Triangula, Quadrata, Orbus, Brainy Cells, Permutile, and Turbo Tiles.
