Twiddle – Rotate the Tiles – Puzzle Game



Twiddle is a tile-rearrangement puzzle, visually similar to Sixteen. You are presented with a grid of square tiles, each containing a number, and your aim is to arrange the numbers into ascending order.

In basic Twiddle, your move is to rotate a square group of four tiles about their common centre. (Orientation is not significant in the basic puzzle, although you can select it.) On more advanced settings, you can rotate a larger square group of tiles.

  • 3×3 – rows only
