What's New in Version 1.2.0
Game Center Integration with Achievements and Leaderboards
A new take on the Triple Town concept!
UPDATE: It appears local highscores are reset each time the app is restarted! Not good.
In this game all pieces come from the same lineage, but are just different steps in that hierarchy. Drop 3 square icon pieces in a row and you'll clear out two of the pieces but in the space of that last square icon you placed will be a new diamond icon. So now you either need to match this up with other diamond icons or work something out so, using those square icons again, a diamond piece will be created next to this first diamond (if I haven't lost you already). Once a higher evolution of icon has been created, the pool of potential pieces that can appear will increase as well making things much more trickier over time (besides simply the board getting much more crowded). The game also throws in two other pieces to help or hinder your efforts. The blank white piece which acts as a joker and the nasty minus piece that acts as an annoying unclearable obstacle until it is surrounded at which point it transforms the space it rested on into a bonus space. Clear a set of three or more pieces involving a bonus space for significantly more points than you would get ordinarily. All in all a very clever puzzle/solitaire board game with a very minimalistic approach.
Tripevo is a great, fun, terrific puzzle app. The objective is to score points. You are given tiles, one by one, to place anywhere on the board. As soon as the board if filled, you lose.
If 3 tiles in a row are the same, they turn into 1 tile of the next level. Altogether there are 14 level tiles, and I have gotten to the 14th level tile after a dozen attempts.
Also, there are 'negative' tiles, which I semi-understand. I've played the game about 20 times and did pay for the full version. Tripevo is a deep, complicated, fun puzzle app. You will not truly understand it unless you actually play it a few times. Do so! It is worth your time.
I have 1 minor problem with this puzzle.....too difficult to explain unless you've played it. This app is worthy of a fan club.
Actually, there's another problem: my high score disappeared - twice!
My high score so far is just over 1 million.

Great game, messed up scoring
I love the game itself, but the scoring is all messed up. The game does not save previous high scores, and the listing of previous high scores only appears accessible on rare occasions. Seems a simple fix...
