The first video game about Tile-based was released in 1979.

Should NOT be used for grid-based games as grids imply this by their nature and thus this tag does not describe anything useful in them.

Usually noticeable from somewhat repetitive environments, building placement in strategy/management games, and especially in level editor if such exists.
