Threes

JohnBSay hello to Threes!. It will say hello to you many, many times, and you'll be thrilled each time it does! The minimalistic puzzle game from the team behind Puzzlejuice, Asher Vollmer and Greg Wohlwend (Solipskier, Hundreds, Ridiculous Fishing) is as stylish as Gary Cooper and as addictive as watching Gene Wilder sing Puttin' on the Ritz. The key difference is Threes! is brand new and available for iOS, whereas those other things, sadly, aren't.

ThreesPlaying Threes is a simple matter of sliding your finger around the screen. The board is composed of numbered tiles. Sliding the screen moves all tiles in that direction, pressing identical ones together to double their face value. The one and two tiles can only combine with each other, however. But they add up to three, which is the name of the game, so it makes sense! The goal is to keep combining tiles to create as many massive numbers as possible. As you can imagine, things get tricky almost as soon as you fire up the game.

Threes! is easy to learn, but it's one of those titles you'll spend hours trying to master. Just one more round, maybe you'll get a higher score next time? And if not, the time after that, for sure! Subtle strategies keep emerging the more familiar you become with the game's mechanics. Plenty of room to keep you engaged, and perfect for obsessing over for weeks on end.

NOTE: This game was played and reviewed on the iPad 3. Game was available in the North American market at the time of publication, but may not be available in other territories. Please see individual app market pages for purchasing info.
