Novel and engaging for about 15 minutes
Threes! is a simple numbers game that involves moving rows and columns to create multiples of three, then add matching numbers to obtain larger multiples of three. That's it.
Easy to learn, no apparent glitches, and no complaints at all, really, other than the occasional "baby-talk" voice acting. (Boy, that got grating quickly.)
I simply lost interest. I played about 40-50 times, and there were no levels, awards, formatting/style changes, or rules added during gameplay. You start and end with the same board, and the only objective is to get as high a score as possible before you're blocked from making any other move.
Assuming you can still download the app at no charge, I estimate you'll have about 15 to 20 minutes of free entertainment, and there's nothing wrong with that. You may enjoy it much more than I did, and thus I would encourage everyone to give it a whirl.
P.S. I read some other reviews after publishing my own, and I noticed that some people paid up to three dollars for this game. To be clear, I would consider that a huge waste of money, and I would rate the game two stars if it had been anything other than free.
Another Great Game Ruined By Greed
Had a lot of potential to be fun but, as other reviewers have pointed out, the game is outright rigged against you. As you make progress and the grid fills up, the AI will send out 4 or 5 blue or red tiles in a row. The AI will also consistently block you from moving tiles to join with others. Now, it's more like playing against an opponent rather than an enjoyable puzzle game.
The "update" has only made matters worse. Why make people pay for a game and then harangue them with ads for tacky merchandise? Must be to tick them off enough to not play. Hmm, seems like good business strategy to me 🤓
Seems like the developers don't realize that we have many other great apps vying for our time and money and that they only have a short window of time to attract and keep loyal players. Too bad that short sighted greed is ruining the App Store.
The perfect game.
The simplicity makes it easy to pick up, but every game is a lesson in how you could use better strategy to play the odds. When you lose, it feels fair and leaves you eager to try again, just a little bit wiser.
As an aside, I'm shocked by the one-star trolls on here. An update added a merchandise page that you have to swipe over to get to. There are no ads. The game is not "rigged" and has no "AI". And it's sad that so many people were introduced first to 2048, a less refined clone of Threes, and now are bashing Threes because it's not what they're used to. 😥
