Lines 123 is a challenging mobile title about matching numbers in 3 columns as you attempt to create numbers of increasing size. The game is free to install and available on both Android and iOS devices.

In Lines 123 players are presented with 3 different columns to match numbers with the goal to create coloured numbers of higher and higher value and in turn earning points to rank up the leader board. Said leader board is built within the game and summarises the global rankings of all Lines 123 players giving you something to continually strive for.

The rules of Lines 123 are simple but developing a strategy will take a number of playthroughs. The basic idea of the game is to match blocks of the same number and colour which will then transform into a different higher value block upon touching.

Moving from left to right the blocks at the top of the screen will drop to the bottom of the screen. Players can choose between simply dropping the block or moving a block in between the three columns with each turn. While this seems like a simple choice on the surface there is a depth to this which requires you to consider several moves ahead to ensure you don’t overflow a particular line and get a game over.

A key consideration is that only the top column block can be moved at any time so you’ll need to carefully manoeuvre to stop having low value blocks stuck at the bottom.

Overall Lines 123 is a brain teasing title that you’ll enjoy moving up the global leader board on and a game you’ll find yourself getting better and better at planning ahead.

Summary:

  • Interesting game design which takes a while to master.
  • In built game leader board to progress through.
  • Play on your iOS or Android device.
  • Choice of two different game soundtracks.
  • No in app purchases other than ad removal.
