Triple Town for iPad and iPhone review

Just when you thought you’d matched shapes into threes in every way imaginable, Triple Town comes along and shakes up the formula.

The premise is simple: you’re building a town on a small 6 x 6 grid filled with bushes and trees. You do this by grouping items into threes: three trees become a hut, three huts become a house and so on.

Unlike other Match 3 games, where the board is constantly full and refilling, the aim is to maintain enough space to keep developing through clever placement of structures. Adorable bears try to wreck this – they wander around until you trap them, turning into grave stones (three of these make a church). 

You keep going until you run out of moves, and getting a new highscore is compulsive. Although it’s free, you can pay a one-off ‘unlimited turns’ pack for £2.49 – and almost everyone we know has.
