Description

Threes: The Demake is a simplified version of the Threes! puzzle game, developed in PuzzleScript, a HTML5 language for creating puzzle games. The basic concept of the game is identical: it is still about pattern matching tiles by moving them in any of four directions on a 4x4 grid, but a number of elements have been changed. The tiles do not carry numbers; instead the original blue colour is used for "1" and red for "2". As all tiles beyond that (3, 6, 12, 24, 48 ...) have the same colour, the developer changed these into white tiles that fill up with a single grey pixel for each pattern match. That way the gameplay stays identical despite the altered visuals. When the entire grid is filled and no more moves are possible, the total score is calculated. Through the PuzzleScript website the game's source code can be run and hacked real-time.
