    try this [app]shift[/app] I'm using the [ app ] [ / app] thing thats probably the problem.

    Shift website is www.iphoneshift.com but it doesn't really tell you anything new.

    The link still isn't working... It just takes me to a search result with games like chocolate shop frenzy.

    And TouchArcade reviewed Ivory Tiles a while back and said it was a hidden gem, so I bought it. You have Ivory Tiles (of course) and you have to tilt the iPhone to get them into certain squares on the board. You have to use wood block that are stuck to the ground, as long as other obstacles, in order to guide the tiles into the squares. It's a great, great puzzle game, and I think it's a steal at $2. I would highly recommend it

    I'm about to grab this, Ivory Tiles was awesome. It is just a block sliding puzzle game, but it is really fun. Just check it out, I think it is only $1.99 now.

    I don't have ivory tiles, does it also have touch controls or adjust tilt position? I think shift has it but I'm not sure.

    @tennisking101

    -Appshopper doesnt have it either, check appsniper if you have it. It's in the US store.

    Ivory tiles has both tilt and touch controls, I don't think it has a tilt calibration though... not sure though

    Just grabbed it, cause i love Ivory Tiles

    Game is like ivory tiles with different music,graphics and new puzzles.

    Same puzzle types but now have what looks like an ice cube instead of the ivory tiles.

    so if you don't have ivory tiles, get it rather than spending one more buck on the new version?

    I just bought it and played the first handful of boards. They are pretty much identical to Ivory Tiles. Maybe there are differences later on in the gameplay but on such brief inspection I can't be sure.

    The graphics and music are really nice for those wondering about the screenshots. To me, if you have neither, just pick whichever one LOOKS the best to your tastes. I don't see a real reason to have both unless you are a crazy "collector" like me. Of course the later levels might be different but I don't have the time to play now. Plus I like to save my games for my commutes.

    Edit. Oops I just realized I was likely playing through introductory boards so they would of course be the same. At any rate most of what I wrote stands. I'm sure there are enough differences to warrant a sequel but if you are on a budget, one should suffice.

    Well the description says the sequel has 70 all-new levels, so besides the introductory levels the two games should have different levels. Which should make picking up both games worth it if you like this type of puzzler.

    Totally agree. More levels are ALWAYS welcome. And as I mentioned, the graphics are very nice.

    Sorry for my earlier blunder. I was in a rush and should have taken more time to check out the other levels. Obviously they would not have been exactly the same as Ivory Tiles :eek: !!!
