Triple Town is an original puzzle game in which you try to grow the greatest possible city. The larger the city you build, the more points you score. You build your city by matching three or more game-pieces: combine three grasses to make a bush, three bushes to make a tree... until you've filled the board with houses, cathedrals and castles. Along the way, you'll have to outwit giant bears who will try to block your progress.
How large can you grow your dream city before the board fills and the game ends?
Triple Town is free to play forever. Eventually, you will run out of moves, but they replenish for free if you wait a while, and you can also buy more moves with free coins that you earn in-game. If you want to eliminate the move counter altogether, there is a one-time fee for *lifetime* unlimited moves. It works on any compatible iOS device you own -- just load the game's option menu on your other devices and select "restore unlimited turns" to activate your purchase on additional devices. (Update: we've added a 2-minute mode that you can play free, forever, as much as you want, by watching advertisements in between play sessions. Or you can pay for unlimited turns, which disables the ads in this mode!)

Makes you not play
Game starts off interesting, but you're given limited turns (can maybe play 5-6 games at start). When turns are spent, you either need to buy more or wait hours to get another 150 (note, a full game takes a good 500 turns or so, so gaining 150 turns/2 hrs means you're waiting like 5.5 hours to play again.) Thing is every game is pretty much a rehash. You don't get bonuses or xp skill levels that help you progress further in your next game. Nope. You get coins. And coins can be spent to buy ONE bush or tree or what not that could make a difference. You get maybe 400 coins if you do well in a game. A single tree costs 400 coins. So, you see where this is going; the game just turns into a grindfest going through the same junk over and over, never really progressing further unless you get amazingly good or spend money to get coins to buy things to plugin. The insult is that the game eventually stalls you when your turns are up, so you're forced to sit around to wait to grind again hours later. It becomes a chore with lots of waiting and little pay off. Nice concept, but there just needs to be some kind of progression to keep you intereted in coming back for more.

>>You get maybe 400 coins if you do well in a game.
Coins are awarded according to how many turns you survive, your town rank, and how many high-level structures are on the board when the game ends. The best of the best can earn tens of thousands of coins from a single game! Newer players will start out earning much less, but the amount they earn will increase as their skill improves.
Great game, Has Problems
Love the game, I’ve played it for a long time on my other device. I have noticed that main problem is that coins aren’t worth much in this game. I’ve made thousands of coins in 1 game but I’ve had to buy 200 turns multiple times per game and have had to stop because I’ve exhausted my the coins I just made. Not to mention I buy trees or bushes from the store. The approach would be fine at later levels of play if the coins were worth more.
I read a Dev Reply that the better players can make many coins in a single run, but those longer games take up coins to do and either it costs too many coins or you’re forced to play until you have no more coins. And have to wait hours to restock on coins. I’d write more but I’m sure no one is reading this... I’m just Venting. Good Game though, very addicting.
Love this game BUT..
I want to start off by saying I LOVE THIS GAME. I’ve been playing it for years and it’s one of the only games that I haven’t stopped playing soon after starting. It’s very addicting. BUT there is a change that could be made to greatly improve the game and make even more people want to play it. I feel like there is no point to the game. I always start and then lose and have to re start all over again. You should add levels to the game where you can progress to the next level after getting so many points or achieving certain things on each map. Then there would be a ‘point’ to it and make me want to play a lot more than having to re start and re do it over and over for no reason.
