Hi All,

I wanted to both introduce the game Thruple, and mention that I have recently lowered the price to $0.99. More info on a lite version, as well as direct contact links is available at the official website: http://www.geneson.net

Below is the info provided on the app store:

Thruple is a fun puzzle game that challenges you to pit your perceptive skills against the clock. If you like the card game SET, you will instantly love Thruple. A Thruple is a set of three game pieces where each property is either different or the same on all three game pieces. Players must remove Thruples until none remain.

A unique optional advanced gameplay setting makes it the responsibility of the player to determine when no Thruples remain... an easy task when just a few game pieces remain, but quite challenging when there are more! A practice mode for beginners is untimed and offers the ability to reveal Thruples.

.: Fun, challenging, and addicting gameplay!
.: 3 gameplay modes for beginners to advanced players
.: Easy interaction with the polished and clean user interface
.: Optional high-contrast dark mode for increased visibility of game pieces
.: Review mode allows the player to return to the previous failed round and see the Thruples he or she missed
.: Separate high score tracking for normal and advanced gameplay. Local leaderboard.

Now Available on the iPhone App Store

I've had this a while and it's an excellent game.

It is is presented extremely well.
The instructions are clear though you'll be reading them a few times as you get to learn the few things you need to be looking for. The dev's description above is all I can point to there.

The very nice part though is not the hint - though that is helpful - it is the Review. The timer (which starts at 2:30) runs out and you haven't completed the game. You can then review the game and the Hint will show you what you missed. So if the instructions don't completely work for you then the review will get you up and going.

Recommended game.
