“This is an example of why we love games. Simple to understand, but very difficult to master.” - iPlayApps
“Groops takes match-three to a whole new level.” - Daniel Celeste, AppAdvice.com
“This game is more fun and challenging than my job! With a smooth design and intelligent matching, it is everything I look for to keep my mind stimulated during downtime” - HallelP
“Fun but challenging game. Can’t put my phone down once I open this app!” - Stefi592
LEVELS - Relax, there’s no time pressure. Find all the possible Groops on the screen to advance. You can use Hints if you get stuck (get more by playing TIME ATTACK or from the Powerups menu).
TIME ATTACK - Find as many Groops as possible before time runs out! Make 5 Groops in a row to increase your multiplier, but be careful! If you make an invalid Groop, your multiplier gets reset. Rack up as many points as possible because your score gets added to your points bank.
OK, HOW DO I PLAY?
Match 3 tiles to make a Groop. Tiles have 4 attributes with three options each - SHAPE (square, circle, leaf), COLOR (blue, magenta, yellow), PATTERN (solid fill, striped fill, border only), and SYMBOL (diamond, hourglass, and its 3rd option is no symbol at all). Finding identical tiles is easy, but you’ll eventually need to make Groops based on mixed attributes, and thats where we kick your brain into full-throttle.
Groops can be made by matching tiles with identical attributes, by matching all 3 options of 1 attribute, or by matching three different options across multiple attributes. For example:
• Solid blue square with no symbol, solid blue circle with no symbol, and a solid blue leaf with no symbol. (Same shape - square, same color - blue, same pattern - solid, all different symbols)
• Striped blue square with no symbol, solid magenta circle with a diamond, bordered yellow leaf with an hourglass (All different shapes, all different colors, all different patterns, all different symbols)
NOTE: To make a Groop, either all options are the same, or all different across the attributes. For example, these would be invalid:
• Solid blue square with no symbol, solid blue square with no symbol, solid blue circle with no symbol (two squares and a circle, instead of three squares, or one square, one circle, and one leaf)
• Bordered magenta circle with a diamond, solid yellow circle with a diamond, solid yellow circle with an hourglass (Invalid for two reasons: 1) two yellows and a magenta instead of three yellows or one yellow, one magenta, and one blue. 2) two diamonds and an hourglass instead of three diamonds or one diamond, one hourglass, and one without any symbol at all)

Great game...but won't allow me to buy more levels
Great game! Very addictive. So much so that I finished all of the levels. I would have rated it a 5 star if not for the following and the lack of help answering my question as to why this happened and how to fix it......I clicked on the strip at the bottom that says "Get More Levels" and I get a pop up that says if I want to share I have to be logged in to Facebook...huh? Share what? I just want to add more levels. I've emailed but no response.
So, being I've completed it and cannot add more levels...deleted it off my iPad.
Otherwise...it really is a great game.
Awesome Brain Teaser
App Support link is broken. I've finished all levels and bonus levels, but Game Center doesn't think I have. Multiplayer is fun but almost no one plays. Time attack is fun, but I prefer the unlimited time to think. Perhaps a better way of scoring the levels would be to see how long it took to solve one of the really hard ones (say after every 10 there's a "test"?) I dunno.
My mind is constantly engaged and I find this app very addicting, but with no more levels, I may become disinterested.
OMG what a Gr8 game!
I have been seeking out mind building games for a while now and Groops sure fits the bill!
The first few levels were easy, but there were some levels that took me hours to solve. That is exactly what I wanted... Something to tax and test my logic and observation abilities.
I'm only sorry that I have finally finished all of the available levels. Here's hoping that you update with more challenges.
