Charlottesville, Virginia – People searching for a clever new puzzle game that’s fun, challenging and insanely addictive, can head to the App Store or Google Play and download 1to6 (v1.3.6), the latest creation from the SECStudio development team. Inspired by the classic game tic-tac-toe and available at no cost, 1to6’s gameplay is easy to understand. There are 6 numbers in the game: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. When the game launches, a random number from 1 through 6 is “popped” in somewhere on the 3×3 grid. When a user taps the number, it increases by 1, and another random number pops onto the grid. Note that since there are only 6 possible numbers, tapping a 6 turns it into a 1 instead of a 7.
For example, the game may start with the number 4 in the center of the grid. A user taps it and it changes to 5. When that happens, a new random number pops up in another section of the grid, such a 3 in the top-left corner. A user must therefore decide which of these two numbers to tap: the 4 in the center of the grid, or the 3 in the top-left corner. As noted, tapping either number will increase it by 1 – i.e. the 4 in the center will turn into a 5, and a 3 in the top-left will turn into a 4. And yet again, a new random number will pop into an available space on the grid, and the cycle continues repeating.
Essentially, a user must think strategically and tactically to decide which number to tap next, in order to try and align three of the same number vertically, horizontally or diagonally. If they succeed, the whole row disappears and they continue playing. But if they don’t make the right decisions, then it doesn’t take long for all nine of the spaces on the grid to get filled, at which time the game is over. Other 1to6 features that make the fun and addictive puzzle game even better include:
* A simple and colorful game board, which is ideal for late-night sessions that can last for hours
* The option to pause and resume the game
* Helpful instructions – although as noted, gameplay is simple and takes seconds to learn
* Players can login to Facebook and invite friends to play
“People are telling us that the app is literally the simplest game they’ve ever played, but also the most addictive one!” commented Zihan Chen of SECStudio. “But don’t be fooled. It may look easy, but it really requires a lot of thinking ahead and smart decision-making. The right decisions lead to better scores and longer games. But the wrong decisions lead to all of the spaces on the board being full of numbers, and time to start again. It takes seconds to learn, but a lifetime to master!”
