[Slide2P] Threes! Review

By Ancol Lin on 0 0

When everyone still enjoyed refreshing the records of Flappy Bird, Threes! stealthily topped the paid chart of America App Store within two days. The game seems easy, but when you play it, you will be deeply attracted to the gameplay.



The game presents a four-by-four grid covered with number tiles. The rule is simple. You just move the tiles to merge the numbers, such as 1+2=3, 3+3=6, 6+6=12, 12+12=24 and so on. (Same 1 and 2 can't be merged). All the tiles move at once, and you can only move a tile if there's an empty space for it to move into.

Don't be taken in by its seemingly simple rule. There's a catch. Each time you move one tile, the game will add a tile. It means you must pay attention to the interests of the whole when you take action. Otherwise, the game will be over when the tiles filled with all grids. Fortunately, there will be a hint at the top of the screen to show you the number which will come next. So, you can generate a movement strategy in term of the next number. The game never ends as long as you still have legal moves left. So, do your best to create the highest number.



The game graphics is concise. There are only three colour tiles and numbers. The design of the tiles is abstract. The edges of the tiles have animated faces that react to nearby matches. The soundtrack is cheerful. Each new tile is introduced with a hipster name and personality profile. The game is charming. If you like pushing numbers around, you might not miss it. 

Tips
New tile appears on the place you moved out before. 
Don't accumulate too much same colour tiles. 
The number '3' most likely to appear on white tiles.

Score: 8.2
