Matching iOS Card Game Threes! Receives Its First Update


Popular numerical puzzle game Threes! has received its first ever update, adding several player-requested features.

For those who haven’t played Threes!, it’s a game which challengers players to come up with multiples of 3 by sliding and matching pairs of cards. The object is to gain the highest score possible by combining numbers to first make 3s, then 6s, then putting those together to get 12s, and so on.

It’s surprisingly fun and addictive, and has been met with a number of positive reviews since its release earlier this month.

The game’s first update adds the following improvements:

+ A spinner on the loading screen
+ If the upcoming card is >3 it will show a “+” on the next card icon.
+ A “skip signing” option to speed up restarting games
+ Ability to play upside-down on the iPad
+ A link to the soundtrack!
+ Character bios will show up again if you replay the tutorial
+ Big bug fix: Tutorial will stop randomly starting for some people
+ Small bug fixes

Threes! is available for download from the App Store for $1.99. Fittingly it’s currently listed as being priced 33.3333% percent off.
