Whatever game you imagine, it is not. It is a brand new, super addictive, and most advanced 3x3 puzzle game. Of course, there is a 6x6, also.

Rules:

Touch and Cycle tiles.
0 -> 1 -> 2 -> 3 -> 0 ...

You can only touch once to change a tile. Linked tiles change together!

3 consecutive tiles with the same number will explode!


Features:

Three unique game modes for 3x3 board
Three unique game modes for 6x6 board with Ghosts and Items
Two additional themes you can unlock for free
Three game modes for Apple Watch is also available for free

I'm really enjoying this game but am a bit confused. This is a premium game, as far as I can tell, in that after paying my $1.99 there are no silly currency IAPs to worry about.

BUT...to play this game's more advanced mode, beyond obtaining some sort of threshold score just to be able to access them, you need to pay stars that can only be earned by playing the base game mode.

This isn't the case of paying stars once to unlock the advanced modes, which I'd be fine with, but stars you'll need to pay EVERY TIME you want to play these advanced modes.

Why? This seems like such a blatant carry over from maybe an earlier free to play form of the game, but as there isn't even an option to buy stars or watch ads to earn them, why not the player have unlimited access to these advanced modes once unlocked?

As far as I know, this developer listens to the users' voices.
If you send your comments, I think they will give you a reply.

Cool, I just posted that rant as a 3 star review. I really like the game but this star thing just hits me as not being fully thought out.

Dear LordGek,

Thank you for playing my game.

As you mention, my game's star system is a kind of weird thing. For premium version, modes are kind of contents you can unlock and to earn more stars. I didn't want users to exhaust contents so fast. But the problem is, there are no other contents to use stars.

For premium version, I don't want to add Ads or IAP. So I decided all you're needed to enjoy my game's full feature is the star. I have a plan to add useful Items and other unique Stones that can you buy with stars.

I thought users could easily earn stars in the 3x3 Infinite mode, but I'm wrong. So, I'll update you can play all modes without any stars.

I'm sorry for my game's insufficient contents. I promise I'll update Items and other Stones for the future.

Thank you again for enjoying my game.
If you have any suggestion, please let me know.

I appreciate this and will happily change my review to this game's deserved 5 stars once the change is made.

Your content so far is fine and, sure, it would be nice to have more things to spend the stars on, but please no pay to play. I'm all for using the stars for permanent additions like the skins or even if you needed stars to unlock new modes, as long as you only have to pay once.

Thank you very much!
When I finish modifying for iPhone X notch, I'll update free to play for modes.
Now I'm working for Android, Desktop, HTML but almost done.
Please keep checking and enjoying my game.

I'm sorry for confusing you with the price.
Yes, it's 1.99.
For last PAX EAST period, it was a 0.99, but I don't know how I can update info in TouchAracde.

If you know how I can update that info, please let me know.
