Tri is out (but what is it?)

Hey Gang,

What the blank is this game about?

Tri



I'm almost intrigued but even more confused as the developers, trying to be clever, I'm sure, don't bother to explain the game for diddly doo in the app's description other than that it has all sorts of configurable options.

I'd settle for a video or at least a real description of play. I know devs like to be cute in their descriptions but, grr, I kinda would hope you explain or give a clue about the nature of the game in there somewhere. All I get out of the descriptions.

1) The dev is good with wacky wordplay.
2) The dev LOVES the number 3 and it's many derivatives.
3) The game has a lot of interesting options.
4) The gears require fuel to move and you can control which one moves at any given point in the game.

Basic stuff like do I try to grab the many targets floating about, avoid them, or a wacky combination of the two depending on which object is in question.

Actually, no, this is almost an exact copy of the description in the AppStore. I did, however, send off an email to the devs hoping somebody could give me a clue what it's about.

That description made me laugh. Reminded me of V for Vendetta.

I don't really understand the gameplay, but it sounds like you have to turn the gears by touching some mechanism to gather fuel points and avoid the dangerous stuff.

But does it get as tricky as needing to hit green triangles with my green gear?
