Favorite Games(s): I was not a sophisticated video game player and spent my childhood playing outdoor activities. However, Mario was my first computer game; my school years were spent with playing Need for Speed. Now I like relaxing, beautiful games, like Journey and Flower on the Play Station.

Love playing Taptiles®? Then you'll love our latest game in the franchise, Taptiles® Saga, now available for free on Facebook! Following the success of our Windows 8 game, Taptiles®, this latest game in the franchise ties a rich storyline together with addictive gameplay.
Everything seemed normal in the land of Lumeria. Magic puzzles controlled by the guardians gave the world just enough magic to keep the flowers blooming, rivers flowing, volcanoes dormant, and sandstorms at bay. But suddenly, a dark purple shadow filled the sky and ripped the guardians away, leaving the puzzles to grow uncontrollably. With the forces responsible for keeping the world in order in captivity, things quickly began to spiral out of control!
Set off on a journey with Maya across the mystical Lumeria to unveil the mystery of the captured Guardians and rid the land of the destructive purple shadow. Match the magical tiles of Lumeria in order solve the puzzles and rescue the Guardians. You can earn points and stars by clearing stages, which in turn unlocks more levels! But beware- you need to watch out for obstacles like chained blocks or stone blocks that may hinder successful completion of certain levels, and each level may have a different goal, so make sure to complete the tasks accordingly.Continue reading...
