There’s no shortage of match-three games out on the market today, especially for mobile devices. But now there’s a new one that has picked up steam.
Threes, which just launched about a week ago, is basically like Candy Crush Saga, but it teaches you maths. It’s currently No. 1 in the Apple App Store for paid apps.
Threes is a sliding puzzle game that requires you to add numbers together. In order to add them, the sum of all numbers must be a multiple of 3. In order to make 3, for example, you have to add 2 + 1. In order to make 6, you can add 2 + 1 and 3 + 3.
The goal of the game is to add up as many numbers together as possible to keep the board from filling up. Once the board is full, the game ends.
