PicTiles is a new take on the Tetris genre. If you're tired of building endless walls, why not try something a bit more adventurous?

In PicTiles the goal is to use everyone's favourite falling blocks to fill in pictures. The more of the picture you fill in - the higher your score.

Version 1.1.3:
  • Increased maximum window size to 1600x1200.
  • Fixed bug with antialising setting in preferences.
  • Fixed compatibility issue with Shades software.
  • Fixed Esellerate in-application registration system for Leopard compatibility.


Mac OS X 10.2 or later, PowerPC G3 500MHz+ ,8 MB graphics card or better.

Indeed ignore the 1 star review and try the game yourself. Personally I don't rate an application if it doesn't work (unless it trashes my system)...

Anyway, the idea is great and the game is higly addicting! Before I played tetris games once a month. And when at level four I quit the app because I got bored. This game solves that problem and takes tetris to a much higher level; you can drop pieces you don't want next to the picture placeholder to dispose them, but you also have a limited amount of pieces.

The only thing the game lacks is music, but most people listen to their iTunes library while playing puzzle games anyway.

And the graphics are very nice indeed :-).

Okay, to all those attempting to download PicTiles 1.0.3, the zip file is corrupt and until this is reflected in the version description above then it will remain so. To get the non-corrupt file please visit http://www.charcoaldesign.co.uk/Software/PicTiles/download.php

I'm very sorry about this guys, but please don't post any more negative reviews - I hardly think a corrupt zip file deserves 1 star for graphics!

The crashing problem was caused by a faulty zip archive. Please download the game again.
