Editors’ Notes

Merge numbers to create bigger numbers and repeat to avoid gridlock. The formula may be straightforward, but Threes!’s simplicity belies an endlessly gratifying and remarkably original game that rewards thoughtful strategy over frenzied swiping. With its lovingly crafted design, whimsical music, and carefully considered free model, Threes! Free is a delightful experience you’ll return to again and again.

Pretty decent, good ad scheme

Ad scheme is not the right phrase. What I mean is that instead of intrusive pop up ads, you get so many plays when you download and then you can get 3 more plays in exchange for watching a 30 second ad. You get to choose when you do this and I have to say that I am far less annoyed by ads when they don’t hijack the game.
The game itself is fun and engaging for 10 or 15 minutes at a time. There don’t seem to be skill levels so I expect to grow tired of it. Perhaps that will be improved in an update but unless it is, I won’t pay for it. Nonetheless, the way ads are handled in the free version is something I wish all developers would do. I don’t even avert my eyes when I play an ad with this one! 4 stars for fun but limited challenge

Addictive, mesmerizing but . . .

I wish there was some way to get a running total. I don’t think that’s possible.

One hitch in the ‘night’ or ‘dark’ mode—when the screen on which you ‘sign’ your name arrives: PHOTON ALERT. Suddenly you have a much too bright screen.

If you’re playing in the dark, it’s painful. If you have a headache, sinus pressure behind your eyes, or are “merely” light sensitive, now’s not the time to play it.

I would really appreciate this being fixed.

I agree with another reviewer that choosing when to handle the necessary ads in the free version is a wonderful thing, because having to see around them is a nuisance.

Been playing this for at least three years.
