Threes! Reviews

Years after first buying this game, and we still love it just as much. We just unlocked the 1536 tile for the first time after several years of play.

Also, very clean app that doesnt bug you with ads or ratings requests, just a fun way to waste a few minutes playing a puzzle gams.

This is the adult fidget toy of the millennium. Im not sure our body knows how to pump blood through our brain without our finger on this game. Its a brilliant, beautiful, maddening, glorious design. Im 100% sure its the app we’ve used most, ever.

We’ve been playing Threes! Since it was first released in 2013, and its undoubtedly one of our favorite games of all time. Its a deceptively simple game and one that rewards careful, considered play. Almost a decade on, Threes! Is still well worth your time!

We were motivated to review by seeing some of the complaints on featured reviews. We have played this game daily for months and find it engaging and challenging still. Yes it took only a few minutes to get started, but every game draws us in to paying thoughtful attention and is a joy. We know there is more to learn still as we have still never gotten to the 3072 tile after playing over 1000 times. Maybe because we enjoy playing before we go to sleep. Maybe because Im stupid. Who knows? This game does randomly choose the next tile to add, and uses some randomness in choosing where to add it. So you might feel like you are doing everything right and promptly lose. Randomness is like that. We like managing for this as best we can, and am ok with losing and starting again.

This is one of the best games out there. Highly motivating and just super polished and smooth! We are not even a numbers fan but this has us hooked. Great job!!!

If one wants two, Threes can be fourplay. Five stars!

We have been playing this as our go to puzzle game when we have a few spare moments. It is always challenging but doesnt get boring. Trying to reach those largest tiles is still compelling after all these years. If you like combining number tiles and strategizing several moves ahead, give it a try!

This is the best mobile game (perhaps best overall game?) ever made. Other games have come and gone but we return to Threes again and again. The challenge remains. The intrigue remains. Its a masterpiece for the ages!

This is one of the only games we play every day, even years later. Such a clean concept, well executed, and lovely to play.

Do not download. You cannot say we didnt warn you.

This is a great game and our go to when we want to fidget in a line or while waiting for something.

This is a game that we have consistently played since launch. It is one that we keep coming back to. The mechanics are great, graphics and sound are perfect as well. There are imitators, but this is the original and the best. Thank you for the consistent updates! This one should be in the iOS games hall of fame.

We come back to this every so often and still find it satisfying. We havent mastered it. But every once in a while we have a great game that makes us want to keep trying. No adds or coins or other fluff. Just the game. Enjoy.

This game is an amazing warmup for anything brain heavy.

All these years later we still open up 3s to waste some time. Our average score is about 10,000 though we hit 20,000 once. We play hoping maybe this time we can best our score! It is fun and we dig it. Cant imagine ever deleting this one.

Love this simple game of numbers. Play offline it is our go to game when traveling by air. Plays exactly the same when our phone is in airplane mode. No sound needed to fully enjoy game so we can play anywhere even if we dont have headphones. We can easily put down and pick up again. So great to play in the doctors/dentists office waiting room or on a break at work.

Threes! Is a great game for passing time in lines, walking, waiting, etc. It can also be a serious thinker and a bit stressful when youre really going for the big score. There is strategy and visualization skills are important, but simple enough foe anyone to play. The deva have kept it fresh over the years as well, so its never left our phone (and they havent issued a version 2 that is just version 1 with different colors so you have to buy it again, which we appreciate)

We love this game. Perfect for zoning out. You are not required to be connected to the internet so its always available when internet connection is shotty or you are on a plane.

Everything we wanted in a mobile game. Pure, thoughtful fun that can be played in quick sessions or for hours without ads, gimmicks, or unnecessary purchases and paywalls. The true depth of this game is staggering, we cant even imagine how much time this took to develop. Ill be playing this for a long time.

A game that has never left our phone.

On our phone, games come and go, but Threes has stuck around for the long haul. It takes about 10 seconds to figure out how the game works. Sure, you can agonize over each move and play slowly and methodically. But we also love to sometimes just swipe away, almost in a meditative state, and see how far we can get. You can play however you want! IMO this is the greatest simple puzzle game since Tetris.

We purchased this game in 2014. Forgot about it until we checked our purchase history when we went back to iPhone. Just as great as we remembered and now we get to for those last two tiles!

What it isnt: It isnt an RPG, it isnt a first person shooter, it isnt MMO. What it is: At first its an easy game of matching numbers in multiples of 3, its a nostalgic throwback to a simpler time, and its the only game that makes math addictive. And after a few games you realize its harder than what you once thought, but, juuuuuuust maybe next time youll beat that score. Then you dont, and you play again.

We’ve been playing for almost seven years now and only recently got a new tile and it was one of the most satisfying experiences of our entire life. Threes rocks the tricky combination of simple and deep, and though youll know the rules right away and can guess early at some good general strategies, you can slowly get better for years, fine-tuning your approach and feeling yourself improving. If youre stuck, keep at it! Few games feel as rewarding.

We’ve played this since it came out. We have Apple Arcade. We play Threes more than any other game on our iPhone and on our iPad. Its just wonderful; it totally zones us out, is charming in every way and has kept us interested for years. Buy it – skip the cheap imitations.

We’ve been playing Threes for years. Its the perfect simple game for a little distraction.

We cant remember when we first got threes, it was quite a few years ago. But its generally the first game we open up when we want to play a game, so would definitely say its something thats given us years of joy.

Needs an undo button. Its too easy to make a move you didnt intend and lose a game you shouldnt. Very frustrating.

Night mode is embarrassing. OLED needs black to really benefit for battery.

Entertaining and originality is eventually replaced by frustration. Simple concept makes this game easy to learn, and creates a desire to improve game score. Tiles have their own personality and this makes it a fun challenge to try and unlock them. Frustration kicks in as tile values increase and there is less room for additional tiles. Random tiles are added that result in game ending scenarios. Leaves little to strategy and cannot plan ahead. This is when the novelty wore off, and we became fed up of Threes. Ill return to play it every once in a while, and hope that improvements have been made. And to quote one of the many tiles, NOPE!.

We have music and sound effects turned on, but theres no sound. We’ve deleted the app and reinstalled it, but still no sound.

This game is way too expensive for the features. But its a great time sink. Needs an undo button to at least be able to undo the last move. Also, its kinda weird that the blocks are rectangles and not squares.

The latest update causes the app to crash upon opening it, each time without fail. There is also a new glitch periodically when sliding numbers, just enough of a delay to ruin any rhythm youve got going. Im on an older iOS, but no matter, please fix the latest update!!!

This game has become so annoying. We love playing this game. BUT restarting is awful. We have to repeatedly swipe and swipe and swipe to get past saving the score and get to restart. We could care less about saving a score and we sure dont want to sit and wait for whatever is failing to save or connect please fix!

Was fun for awhile but now the game is constantly being interrupted by Tobus or another name to a bunch of confetti fanfare we deleted it.

This is a somewhat fun game, but our main problem is it essentially only goes as long as the game feels like letting you. Past a certain point, you literally have no control over your own gaming experience. You play as long as the game feels generous enough to give you moves to play, and thats it. That will maybe only be a handful of moves, or maybe its enough to net you some really high-scoring tiles. Either way, youre done when the game decides youre done, and you have no choice in the matter. It might as well just play itself.

Im getting tired of the phantom or miss-swipes. We barely touch the screen and before we can swipe down it has swiped right (or made up some other move we never had any intention of doing). Coordination is not an aspect of gameplay and there are no options to adjust sensitivity or other settings to avoid this issue.

They had some nerve charging six bucks for this crap! At least its now 99 cents, but its still way too much for this atrocious game! Annoying sound effects, ridiculous rules that make no sense, and it constantly dishes out 1s and 2s when you start doing well, which quickly ends gameplay! 2048 was inspired by this. Its VERY rare that a knock-off game is actually better than the game that inspired it, but this is the case here! This game cheats and is so irritating with the voices, that we always end up playing a few games, then going on to a better game! Get 2048, delete this garbage! Threes may have inspired 2048, but is nowhere NEAR as good! Im just SO grateful we didnt buy this when it was $5.99!! Even at $.99, its still much too expensive for this P.O.S.!!!

Threes has been a mainstay in our library through four iPhones. Its more than worth the price of admission. Enjoy!

We love this game so much! Feels like it keeps our brain sharp and helps us calm down when Im anxious.

This is one of the games that will never leave our phone.

Good game that offers great puzzle experience.

We have played Three for years. Most times, playing Three to us is a way to relax and take our mind off things. Other times, its a way for us to power through boring meetings. Thank you for making such a beautiful game.

Threes is a brilliant little game. The concept and execution of this is outstanding. It’s cute, friendly, has amazing style and one of the best game soundtracks ever. It’s one of the few games we play with full audio. We’ve put in thousands of hours into this game, and every month we keep improving and finding new ways to increase our scores. It has an amazing learning curve that anyone with over a Triferatu under their belt will know. Getting a Volleo might’ve been our greatest gaming achievement, and this is coming from a big console game. We’ve been playing this game since its release in 2014, and we haven’t stopped since. We cannot think of a single game, mobile or console, that we’ve fallen this much in love with. 5/5.

Sure, we may be addicted, and there’s no going back, but we’ve accepted it with pride! This app has all the things we could want in a mobile game. It can be mindless and soothing, or you can actually take the time to think through each move for a higher score. It’s patient and simple; each move is just a swipe, meaning we can pick it up or put it away in a matter of seconds. So few other games accomplish that. We love the design and level of detail that has been poured into this game. We’ve owned it since it was released in 2014 and it’s stood the test of time, needing very few updates in order to stay compatible with iOS. According to the stats, we have played this game over 20,000 times. We wish we could buy it again!

We love this game. We’ve been playing it for years. It is challenging but addicting. Great game, highly recommend.

This is the game that was poorly ripped off by 2048. Get this some to show your support for original ideas.
