Weekend Distraction: Threes!

Screen Shot 2014-02-14 at 12.29.00 PM
I don’t have a terribly long attention span for games.

But yet I enjoy pulling up an app and playing with it for a bit of challenging fun.

Threes! is the perfect go-to when you have a few minutes to kill.

(and… before I go any further, this app has NO ads, and NO in-app purchases! Yay!)

It is a lovely game. It is deceptively simple, works flawlessly and is surprisingly challenging.

You can choose to be taken through a bit of tutoring to get you started, and then away you go.

The challenge is to get the highest score you can (and then next time….beat your score.)

What to do? Combine 2’s and 1’s to make 3’s. Combine 3’s to make 6’s. Combine 6’s to make 12’s. Combine 12’s to make 24’s. Combine 24’s ….. you get the picture.

Once you try it a few times, you’ll be drawn back again and again.

I’m not alone in my enjoyment. The reviews are all quite positive:

Threes is a puzzle game with absurd amounts of charm

Threes App Review: A cute, casual and challenging puzzler

Threes! is what every indie App Store game should be!

***

Threes! for the iPhone or iPad is $1.99 in the iTunes store.

p.s…. my best score (so far) is 2,397 πŸ™‚
