The new “Don’t Step the White Tile” mania has finally caught us here at Touch Tap Play and we’re working on majoring in Piano Tiles, a great game in the genre of black tile tapping. If you have played the game already, you know that it’s extremely difficult to get a satisfactory high score, so we are here to help you with some Piano Tiles cheats: tips and tricks that will help you get that high score you always wanted without doing anything illegal in or with the game. Good ol’ skill and knowledge – that’s the way to go!
So if you’re searching for ways to get bragging rights for your high score, check out our Piano Tiles cheats and tips below and you’ll get them!
1. Learn to play using two fingers
When I first started to play Piano Tiles on my iPad, I was using just one finger. Obviously, you are way slower if you use just one, so the best thing you can do is to master using two fingers: either the thumbs or the index fingers. Thumbs are actually an option only if you play on an iPhone, but if you can lay it flat, index fingers might be a better choice. My strategy is pretty simple when it comes to optimizing the tapping: with my left finger I tap the tiles on the first two rows (from the left) and the right one is left for the final two. There are people who alternate the tapping and use a finger for each new tap, but that becomes difficult when you have your left hand on the fourth row and you have to jump over it with your right one to tap the first row. So dividing the board into two pieces and allocating one finger for each works the best!
2. Practice with the slower paced modes
The Classic and Zen modes in Piano Tiles can be considered the easy game modes because you have no increasing speeds there and instead you have to find your own rhythm. This is a good practice for the the more difficult modes, so make sure you play them often before focusing on Arcade or Rush, which are pretty hardcore.
3. Change fingers
If the two index finger method is not working, try to find something new that works for you. One of my friends has insane skills with the index and middle finger of the same hand: try it out too and find what works best for you!
4. Take advantage of the rest reminder
Seriously, you need it. Tap the More button in the game’s main menu and set the timer for the rest reminder. 5-6 minutes would be perfect, but 10 might work well too. Just remember to rest your eyes regularly: not only that it helps your overall health, but it also helps you get back into shape because during the rest periods you should calm down and regain focus – stuff that you probably lose while you play repeatedly and get angrier and angrier…
5. Don’t try to beat the top scores on the leaderboards
The top players with seemingly impossible scores on the leaderboards are players who have hacked the game and their Piano Tiles high scores are not real. Obviously, you can’t beat those players (who use tools to simply edit their high scores), but instead focus on beating the more real-looking high scores. Use your common sense and maybe ignore those high scores completely and only compete with your group of friends.
6. Become a master of one level only
The most challenging game modes are the Arcade, Rush and Relay modes thanks to their “endless” modes. Try to master one of them by playing it over and over – with time, you will see that you’ll do better and better and your high scores will surprise you too.
7. Remove any screen protection you might have
It is useful, I know, but your device needs the maximum sensitivity possible to “feel” your taps, so if you get the feeling that although you’re tapping the right tile, the game doesn’t see it, remove any screen protection you might have and try again.
