First, select one of the three tiles.
Then, place the tile somewhere on the 3x3 grid.
Repeat these steps 9 times.
For scoring, each set of adjacent matching tiles is worth the square of the number of tiles that makes up the set:
1 tile = 1 point
2 tiles = 4 points
3 tiles = 9 points
4 tiles = 16 points
Minimum score: 36
Maximum score: 100
My high score is 92. :) Post yours below!
Looks good, @thulbert. Turn-based, already I like it. And yeah, an interesting puzzler. Match the colors for the tiles. Rotating the tiles would be a plus but then might make it too easy.
Add some sound and you're all set.
For now though, gold star work ! Nicely done.
Nice first tile game!
My suggestion are:
- Display current score anytime not just after round 9.
Add marker when tiles match adjacent tiles. Or you can change color to notify player when match occurs.
I could imagine expansions to make the game more dynamic and not limited like this. For now, I'll end my post here :)
Great suggestions! Thanks!
Some context, there are 24 combinations of 4 colors, so after 8 rounds you see every combination. I didn’t want to add rotation so you have to keep an eye on which tile patterns are remaining vs which have already been used!
The 9th round any of the combinations are possible!
