Triad

Available for desktop and Windows Phone 7 devices

 

A visual puzzle game that has challenged and fascinated players for nearly a decade!

Triad is a tile-matching game with a twist: the tiles you match are never identical, but instead must form any of 256 different patterns.  That's far too many unique patterns to memorize, but don't worry: with the help of the brief tutorial you'll quickly learn to recognize when three tiles form a Triad and when they don't.  As you stretch your mind's eye, you'll find you're able to discern Triads faster and faster.

Triad was such a popular game for us for so many years that we just had to build a new version for the Windows Phone 7 devices too.  In addition to the usual upgrades--better graphics, world-wide high scores, achievements, new one- and two-player game modes and so on--we've made some fundamental improvements in how Triad plays.  Triad's game engine now controls its difficulty much more carefully: you won't accidentally get "easy" boards or "hard" boards, but instead can choose your own difficulty level and expect a consistently tough game every time.
