Product Description

Triple Town is an original puzzle strategy game in which you try to grow the greatest possible city. The larger the city you build, the more points you score. You build your city by matching three or more game-pieces: combine three grasses to make a flower, three flowers to make a bush, three bushes to make a tree... until you've filled the board with houses, cathedrals and castles. Along the way, you'll have to outwit evil barbarians and wizards who will try to block your progress.

This is a game that can be played for minutes or hours at a time. You'll have to think several turns ahead if you want to avoid inevitable gridlock as unfinished buildings, barbarians and wizards start to pile up. And sometimes, if you're lucky, you'll be helped along by a magical crystal (which combines with anything) or a powerful bomb (which wipes nuisances off the board). But luck won't save you forever!

How large can you grow your dream city before the board fills and the game ends?

4.0 out of 5 stars A Fun Puzzle Game October 15, 2010
Verified Purchase
First of all, if you have Kindle 2 you can safely purchase the game because it works great on this device. It even loads a bit faster than the other Kindle 2 games I have purchased. Kindle 2 is the device I have, so I don't know whether the game will work on the other types of Kindle.

Triple Town is a pretty fun puzzle game. You get a board subdivided in to squares, in which different kinds of objects appear. You need to create groups of similar objects, which will turn them into more valuable things (grass turns into a flower, which, in turn, transforms into a bush after you have accumulated three or more of them.) There are also wild cards (crystals), which can be substituted for any object. Sometimes, marauding barbarians appear and prevent you from placing objects in the cells where you want to place them. They can also move randomly, so make sure you place the barbarian in a space where even if it moves, your entire game will not be too compromised by that. The best thing is that you don't have to remember all these things because you will keep getting hints as to each object's value and function throughout the game.

Overall, the game is a bit basic, which is why I only gave it 4 stars. However, the graphics are quite nice, the tutorial is very clear and detailed. The game is fun and relaxing and works great on Kindle.

This is the type of game that is very easy to pick up and learn. It is also quite addicting, as I spent a few hours playing it the first day. This is also one of those games that will take a long time to master, as there is a lot of strategy involved, so I expect that I will be coming back to this game again and again. Well worth the inexpensive price!

5.0 out of 5 stars Challenging enough, but won't fry your brain October 15, 2010
By Cheryl

I was hesitant to try this game because it had just been released and there were not any reviews on it other than some design type technical ones off this site. I downloaded it this afternoon and spent about an hour playing. It is easy to learn and makes me think without overtaxing my brain after working all day. I'm hooked. After reading about the development of this game, I hope Spry Fox will work on making more games just for the Kindle (as long as they are compatible with my Kindle 2.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great quick-play entertainment October 21, 2010
Verified Purchase
Triple Town is a unique and surprisingly fun puzzle game. And for just 3 dollars, it's a cheap buy that provides some welcome diverse entertainment from the slew of Kindle word games.

I bought my Kindle for its main purpose, e-reading. However, I occasionally reach a logical stopping point in my book and want to kill a few minutes or decompress after reading dense, textbook like material. The free word games are nice, but I'm not always up for a word game. Scrabble is great, but it can take awhile to complete a game. Triple Town is the perfect answer to killing 5-10 minutes.

Triple Town is played on a 6x6 grid. When the game begins, several of the tiles are filled with various icons. Each turn you are given 1 additional tile that you must place on the board. The goal is to position three of the same type of tile next to each other. When that happens, the three tiles disappear and become 1 tile with a new icon. For example, placing three tiles of grass next to each other results in them turning into 1 flower tile. That one flower tile appears in the spot where you placed the final grass tile. Three flower tiles become 1 shrub tile, 3 shrubs a tree, and so forth all the way up to large castle tiles. Each time you move up this chain you score more and more points. The challenge is to always leave enough space so that you get these like icons together so they keep converting into higher order icons.

It's easy enough in the beginning of the game when you are mostly dealing with grass and flower tiles. After about 10 moves, though, the board starts to get cluttered with shrubs and trees.

5.0 out of 5 stars here are some tips I've found November 17, 2010
By J-Magic
First of all, it's addicting!!! the highest level I've made is capital, 1 tip I have is; set up a grave yard and keep all of your barbarians in it. the other tip I have is, set up for combos, it seems obvious but it is really important!! The last tip is put your lakes by your churches and castles and then put crystals on them!!

But the most important thing is to practice!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A super break when you can't read!! November 2, 2010
Verified Purchase
You know the drill: You're standing in a long line with no one to talk to, you're stuck watching a chick flick with your wife / girlfriend because you promised you would, you're waiting in the doctor's office and they won't turn off the ever-present TV. How to concentrate on the book you've been enjoying? It's pretty tough to concentrate on Jane Austen with Wolf Blitzer babbling in the background. Enter Triple Town!! This amazingly simple and amazingly complex game will keep you entranced for however long it takes for the doctor to see you or for the dying-mother-of-triplets-to-find-a-loving-family-to-take-them-in-before-she-dies-of-psoriasis.
It's way way easier to learn than, say, chess. But, like chess, you can dabble in it like a happy simpleton or try to plan deep and far-reaching strategies like a grandmaster. Either way, it's going to keep you occupied no matter what you're doing. I recommend putting it away, though, when driving in the Indianapolis 500 or landing the space shuttle. Just a thought.

I wish it worked on Kindle Touch...
I was disappointed as well when I upgraded to the Kindle Touch and lost Triple Town. I am hopeful they will offer it in a new format.

Hey. I;m glad to find an advanced players section. Nice high score btw. Mine is 4.95 million. I thought I'd share some hints to help people out with scoring because just building no or low star sky castles isn't very productive.
