Tapping tiles is your new addiction (pictures)

The latest rage at both the iTunes and Google Play app stores is a simple, but incredibly addicting, game.

Tap only the black tiles

Piano Tiles (iOS) or Don't Tap the White Tile (Android) is an incredibly addictive game with two different names. The concept is easy, but the game is incredibly hard to put down once you start playing.

Five game modes

There are five different game modes, but the core principles are the same: touch the dark tiles as they scroll down the screen, and don't make any mistakes.

Finishing Classic mode

The classic mode requires you hit 50 tiles in the least amount of time possible. When you reach the green finish line, you'll get to see how fast you completed it.

Score screen

At the end of every game, you'll get to see how you did against your previous high score.

Editors' note: I can't claim the high score pictured in this slide -- it was done by CNET's Lynn La who is a Piano Tiles expert.

Failed!

The object of the game is to only touch the black tiles. When you slip up, the game makes sure to let you know.
