Threes! is a pattern matching game played on a single-screen 4x4 grid. The game starts with a number of tiles carrying the numbers 1 and 2. The player can move the tiles around the grid in any of the four directions by swiping unless the row or column near the edge for the chosen direction is entirely full. With every move a new tile randomly appears. It is not possible to specifically move a single tile, all tiles move along where a gap permits. When two tiles with the numbers 1 and 2 touch, they merge into a new tile with the number 3. From that number onward merges are only possible times two, so 3, 6, 12, 24, 48 etc. The goal is to keep combining the numbers until the grid is entirely filled and no more moves are possible.
Each tile, except for 1 and 2, has a small face at the bottom and with each new combination a short voice clip is played. All discovered tiles are stored on the main menu and new tiles are introduced with their names and a quirky description when they are discovered for the first time. The game keeps detailed statistics.
