Sang Moon Joo has recently published a bunch of interesting puzzle games. N16 is a point scoring game with a lot of potential.
Combine 1's to form a single 2. Combine 2's to form a single 3. The game ends when there are no adjacent matching numbers.
How the scoring works
The numbers on the left represent the actual tiles. The numbers at the top indicate how many matching tiles will be connected. For example, if you have three 6's lined up, you score 128. Interestingly, that's the same score as six 3's.
I'd really like to see a leaderboard for N16. Right now my best score is 11,834.
I've spent a lot of time trying different strategies. There's a certain amount of luck involved, as in many of the other point scoring puzzle apps listed below. But make no mistake: this is a game of skill.
Before I forget, I should mention that the new tiles added are done randomly. However, I have not figured out what the pattern is for the Highest Random Tile. For example, if the board has only 2's & 3's, it will not give me a 4 or even a 3. When my highest tile was 11, I did see 6's pop up. Not sure about 7's.
If you manage to get a 12 or 13 tile, please take a screen shot and email me. Or leave a comment below.
