Recensies

  • "Tidalis is a match-3 game that doesn't feel tired or repetitive: I actually want to play it, which says something considering how many puzzle games I've reviewed. I don't think it's a stretch to say that Tidalis is one of the best puzzle game I've ever played. Simply put, if you like puzzle games (and even if you usually don't), you need to get Tidalis. Right now. Go!"
    James Allen, Out of Eight PC Game Reviews (8/8 score)
  • "Overall, this is the most robust and interesting casual game I have seen in some time. There is so much to do and so many ways to play I don't even know that casual actually suits it. Yes the gameplay is casual but this is a highly developed, well-rounded, offering from Arcen Games that puts many games of higher price to shame. It's got numerous ways to play and very successfully takes an old genre, turns it on its head, and shows you just what can be done when you think outside of the box."
    Christophor Rick, Gamers Daily News (GDN Gold Award, 9/10 Score)

Info over het spel

Tidalis is a block-based puzzle game with casual appeal, hardcore depth, and an addictive new "streams" mechanic. The game is brimming over with riffs and variants on that core mechanic with 20 game modes, dozens of special blocks and items, and 115 levels in the adventure mode alone. The basic rules of the game are this: blocks fall down into the board and have a color and an arrow direction. If a stack of blocks exceeds the height of the board, you lose. In order to clear blocks, you must right-click and drag paths through the arrows to set up chain reactions of like-colored blocks.
If this sounds simple, that's because it is -- you'll be lining up lengthy chains within minutes. But you'll be surprised how much brainpower it takes to set up combos of multiple chains, and the many brainteaser-style puzzles include some real stumpers. Tidalis has co-op and competitive multiplayer modes (both online and offline); action-oriented modes and timer-less brainteasers; a lengthy, casual-friendly adventure mode; twenty unique game modes providing innumerable twists to the basic gameplay; dozens of special blocks and items; and over fifty minutes of beautiful music to go with the painterly art.
In short, several games' worth of content are built on top of this core mechanic, which you'll quickly find to be as iconic as it is novel.

Key Features:

  • Puzzle game with casual appeal, hardcore depth, and an addictive new mechanic.
  • Two-player co-op and competitive play (both local and networked).
  • A wide selection of both action-oriented or brainteaser-like levels.
  • Casual-friendly adventure mode, hardcore-focused custom games and vs modes.
  • 20+ game styles, and dozens of items and special blocks.
  • Rich, painterly art style and beautiful music.
  • Players can create and share whole new themes, levels, and adventures.
  • Options for colorblind players, players averse to lots of light and motion, and older computers.

I hesitated quite long about whether I would recommend this game or not. But in fact I think that Tidalis isn't interesting enough to be honestly recommended, or maybe to only be to mega fans of puzzle games. Indeed, there are a lot of possibilities in the gameplay and the different modes and it can hold some players in front of the screen for a good time, but the difficulty is quite insane sometimes and very irregular all along the adventure.
Some achievements are quite hard or at least very long to unlock, but you can get most of them by simply letting the game play by its own. Yes you're reading well: By its own. So where is the reward? In contrary, most of the hardest levels are useless in the adventure, rewarding nothing at all, and can easily be skipped if you lose (which will arrive quickly if it's hard).
So what is the purpose of this game? To beat some puzzles from time to time maybe, or literally go through the adventure, but clearly avoid playing too long at once, it could annoy you very quickly. Personally after clearing this game to 100%, I don’t want to hear about it anymore… ever!

An interesting casual puzzle game. A little like Tetris but much deeper. Its basic rule is to eliminate 3 blocks of the same colors. The difference is that the block is directional. Player have to adjust the direction of every block to chain the stream through as more blocks as possible. When a set of blocks is eliminated, one or more new streams appear to connect more blocks of different colors. The more sets of blocks are eliminated continuously, the more the combos are. This mechanics makes this game deep, complicated and engrossing. This game uses many different conditions to limit player's move, thus making it much more challenging. Finally, the background music is beautiful. Recommend if you just wanna relax peacefully.

Tidalis is a cute little puzzler which I find very fun to play. multiple gamemodes make this game hard to put down once you start playing it. The cute visuals and music just seem to meld with each other creating a mesmorizing experience which you have to see and hear to believe.

Visuals (9/10) The tiles are very beautiful, and the colors are just right for a game such as this. With the feature to change different styles of tiles, it just adds to the variety and niceness of the game. The backgrounds are nice and clean, and the overall effects such as wisps when you make matches, the special tiles that change the aspect of the game are nicely done.

Music (9/10) The music for this game is not overly thrilling, but it does add to the overal playing experience. It may be a slight bit repetitive, but that's fine with a puzzler when sound is not all that you should experience when playing a game such as this.

gameplay (8/10) Yes, there are a truckload of different gameplay options such as sun/moon, gravity, water and even the staple of Zen. When put together they just simply make a wonderful gaming experience. Some of the modes (even put together with other ones) can definitely make the game harder or easier, depending on which modes you have enabled.

Overall, I would give this game a 8.5/10 for the features it has. I would definitely recommend this game to my friends if they want a good puzzle game that is both satisfying and difficult (if it needs to be).

I don't normally like casual puzzle games, but Tidalis got me addicted. Its mechanics are fairly unique and it has a ton of variations so it doesn't get monotonous. There's a story mode to introduce you to everything the game has to offer, a brainteaser mode where you have to clear the board in one move, an option to randomly set up a game for you, and a multiplayer mode. You can also set up custom games with whatever parameters you want (which special blocks to use, which playstyles to use, time limit, board size). The soundtrack is also good, and it changes based on how you're doing in the game.

There is nothing about this game that stands out in difference to any other game of its genre. In fact... there are better games in this genre then this one. I'd really think about this one before buying and look around to see what else is on offer and only buy it if you've "beaten" everything else.
