4.0 out of 5 stars A lot of dev time has gone into a small space, 21 April 2014
This review is from: Threes! (App)
I love simple concepts. The Quell series for example.

I don't like being hurried, having to look to closely at details, or wave my fingers too frantically.

This is where I disagree with this games central concept. I've heard 2048 (kind of a clone of this game) be described as tetris for maths geeks and unless you have a large screen (>4") you will find you are hard pressed to read numbers behind your thumbs. This could be called brain training in that you are really expecting to remember the numbers lurking behind your thumbs but I can't help feeling the dev's missed the mark to an extent in refining existing graphics instead of concentrating on legibility and visual reward with the rather basic tiles on which you will be focusing. This is where games like SunStones come into their own, relying on novel shape and colour patterns, but after years of dominance by candy crush and jewel clones people desire new challenges.

This is a great game, lots of fun, but don't expect to waste nearly as much time as the more traditional games, that don't tax an arbitrary lore of numbers and your quick counting capacity.

Five stars if could be cleaner or more varied, but I might just be being too demanding. Worth a look for nugget.
