Threes! is a challenging and addictive puzzle game that tasks you with moving numbered tiles around on a board to create multiples of three. Each time you make a move, a new tile is added, and you can keep going until there are no tiles left to combine.
Challenges and Game Center: While the challenge of beating your own high score might be enough motivation for a while, you may want an extra push down the line. That's why the Challenges built into the game are such a nice addition. At any point during a game, you can switch over to the Challenges screen to see how all of your game stats, and not just your total score, measure up against your personal bests. You can also challenge your friends and track your progress against players worldwide through Game Center integration.
Nice design: There are some nice design touches built into this game that you may not expect, but that make it more fun to play. For instance, looking closely at the tiles that you slide across the board will reveal that they actually have tiny faces across their bottom margin. And these faces change as they are moved and combined. The sound effects that go with each movement and combination are also quite cute.
Sound bugs: The sound didn't always work on this game during testing. Even after repeated adjustments in the Settings menu, it would come on during some sessions and not during others.
Threes! is an easy way to kill a few minutes or a few hours. Even though the mechanics of the game are fairly easy, the challenge of creating tiles with a higher and higher value will keep you coming back again and again. This app costs $1.99 to download and play, and there are no additional options for in-app purchases.
