“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)

Almost Perfect Addiction
I withheld a star only because the game shuts off the audio of some radio & subscription podcast apps when it is opened and that bugs the crap outta me.
The game is very addictive and just when I think it's getting easier or I'm getting the hang of it I get a board that perplexes me for a long time before I manage to solve it.
If they fix the fact that it doesn't play nice with other apps I'll add the 5th star.
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.

The requirement to share to Facebook has been removed. the 5x5 bonus pack is now available for free!
I love this game, got addicted right away. This game left me thinking and feeling dumb sometimes. But I beat the game finally, I would live to see more levels added. Also I noticed a glitch on Game Center it says I haven't finished all 4x4 puzzles but I have would like to see that fixed. Wish more people would play the multiplayer quick ones, I can never find anyone to play against.
