Toodle Tiles uses the basic tiles and strategies of the ancient Mahjong game, in which you attempt to match 72 pairs of tiles in a stack five levels deep. The object of the game is to remove all the tiles. Only those tiles on the outside edges and those that have no tiles on top of them are elidgable for removal. Two tiles must be matched by clicking on them or pressing the space bar. Depending on the order that the player removes the tiles, they may or may not be able to be completely cleared away. Once a player removes all the possible matched tiles, but still other tiles remain, he has reached a Toodle Topple, and he looses the game. If he removes all the possible matched tiles without asking for a hint and no tiles remain, the player has reached Toodle Target and is rewarded by some cool music and graphics.
This game is made more accessible for people with low vision by replacing the Chinese characters on the traditional tiles with simple, bright, high-contrast graphics. The game is accessible to people who are blind by adding a speech component that announces the name of each tile as the person moves to it.
Currently there is only a Beta version, which comes with four different tile sets, the traditional Chinese one and another with 36 kinds of bugs and another with 36 kinds of fruits and vegetables. Do not forget to agree with the license agreement, which you can find through this link!
