User Reviews for Power of 2 - Strategic number matching game
3.99 out of 5
3 years ago, Bryan R!
I read a lot of complaints and wanted to say how much I enjoy this game... it’s free folks, so either deal with the ads or pay a couple bucks and remove them (support the developers at the same time) very simple, just like this game - perfect night time wind down the brain and zone out kinda fun!
UPDATED REVIEW: I gave it some time and just tried to play again, hoping that it wasn't as bad as I remembered. It is WORSE!! I miss this game so much but I simply cannot deal with the ridiculous animation. It is pointless and with the number of complaints in the reviews and still no changes made, I am reducing the rating and deleting this P.O.S. app! I wish zero stars were an option!! ****** I was mildly obsessed with this game prior to the latest update. Simple but addictive. I could play for hours! Now it's AWFUL!!! The animation is terrible, distracting and makes me feel like I've moved tiles I wasn't intending to move. And DON'T GET ME STARTED ON THE ADS!!! I expect ads on free games and I don't mind them when placed appropriately. At the beginning or end of a game or when you choose to shuffle or remove a tile... All OK. NOW, ads pop up when I'm trying to play and if I've got several moves planned and start swiping, I end up clicking the obnoxious ads. Not cool!! Give me back my favorite game please. I would like to not have to play in airplane mode :(
Not only do the ads pop up when you are in the middle of a move, but they keep talking even when you return to playing the game...many times talking up until the next ad......spooky to hear a voice talking away while you are playing. This used to be one of my three favorites, but now I rarely play it and when I do, immediately realize why I don’t play it anymore. I would not recommend wasting space to download this game until they do something about the way the ads come up and stay up.
I don’t know why people are giving it such bad reviews this is one of the best games that I have ever played there’s just one bad thing about it when you reshuffle it cost way to much 180 coins that is way to much but that is the only bad thing about it. All in all it is a great game!
I love this game - simple fun challenging. Please allow us to mute the game sounds again. I rarely plan anymore since the sound can’t be muted. To the folk that say you love the game and play it a lot, but hate the ads. Just pay the $2.00 to remove the ads. The developers deserve to get paid and it is a small one time fee.
I liked it enough to pay the $2 to get rid of adds. Now I can’t turn off the annoying sounds that play with every click or move. I tend to play games while listening to audio books. I can’t stand the sounds. I have tried turning off the sounds in settings but the sounds play whether or not I have them turned on or off. The game is pretty much useless if I can’t play it quietly.
I loved this game, was totally addicted. Until the latest update. The adds popping up in the middle of you concentrating on the game is infuriating, the animations are horrible, numbers change mid move and suddenly don’t equal what they should have. I put up with it until today when one of those mid game adds popped up and it was a straight porn clip. Imagine if a child was playing and that came up! Won’t be playing again.
Like others, I am appalled by the way the advertisements pop up right in the middle of game play. I had not played the game in a while and at first thought I had accidentally activated an ad on my iPad. Like others, I appreciate a truly free game and understand that commercials are an unfortunate “necessary evil”. To interrupt a game in this manner, however, is not only completely unnecessary but also highly disrespectful to the player.
The update from August 8, 2017 has a lot of ads. The game play is interrupted by ads at least every 30to60 seconds. Also, the numbers overlap which makes it harder to near impossible to keep the game going. The last version was great. I have gotten high scores with no problems and endless playtime but now the app isn't worth playing anymore. Fix ASAP.
People will complain about everything #firstworldproblems. Ignore the negativity. It’s a fun game. I mean it’s not a weekend in Vegas with Kevin Hart, but if you need to chill out and decompress, this game is perfect. 5/5 would recommend!
I love playing this game but with the new update the ads are to much they're not even five minutes apart maybe 60secs at most. If they showed way less ads it'd be a great game. I liked that they didn't constantly show ads when playing in the old version.
I'm really really disappointed in the upgrades on this game I really enjoy playing the game however for some reason the board will reset itself without me even touching it. Which means it will shuffle the board and move everything around without even being at the point where it requires it. I am deleting the game
This was my favorite game. Then everytime I tried to open it it would close out. I deleted it to reinstall it but it thinks it’s still on my phone and won’t let me reinstall. It only says open but her. I try that it closes out. So disappointing. Too bad I spent a lot of $ on this game yes I have turned my phone off.
Have had my iPhone for 5 years. I have 4 games that have remained on my phone forever, despite the many that I've tried & deleted. Power of 2! has fallen out of favor with Aug 2017 update. Has anyone paid to remove ads & been happier with the results? It's only $1.99 but I hate to waste that money. What a shame!
I used to play this game ALL the time, and I loved it. Sadly, With the last update-- now there are annoying pop up ads and the graphics are all jumpy, making it really unenjoyable. Too bad, because it really was fun before.
I loved this game UNTIL the latest update... I hate these pop up ads in the middle of my game. Won't be playing until I can either (a) purchase an ad-free version or (2) the ads go away during game play...
Transitions used to be so smooth. Now they are jumpy and mess with concentration. Ads pop up all the time, even in he middle of a move. It’s so irritating, that I will be deleting the game. I played this game to unwind. It’s no longer relaxing.
What really pisses me off ,is you can’t see your passed scores and out of no where , when your score is so high, the screen pops up game over, & I have to start all over. Why ?... is it to make more money on me having to buy more Monet? I’m so disgusted!
Make 3or4 moves and they cut in for advertisers, BAD BAD BAD Done wit this game!!!!! I'm not going to play anymore because of all the adds. You just figure out some moves and then it jumps to adds. It was fun to play before but now its a loser!!
One of a kind Game in App Store that Everyone will enjoy!
I've seen many games in the past few years, and none have been quite like this! Other than being a new fresh unique game, it can keep having you come back for more. I find playing "Power of 2" very relaxing since there is no time pressure to complete. I have enjoyed every minute of this game and am so happy to have found it. (Other Apps have similar names like 'Power of 2' or '2048' -- but they are very different from this particular game) -- be careful to select this orange one by 'Think Cube Games' as I find it to be the BEST and MOST ENJOYABLE ! Thank you for creating such a wonderful game for all of us regardless of age.
I have deleted all other game apps on my iPhone but will keep this one. This game is addicting and you can zone out and pass hours of time easily!!! It's free, and if you play it right you never have to purchase coins. The only thing that I don't like is: there are rare occasions where I'm shuffling numbers around at such a fast pace that when I combine 2 certain numbers, they just disappear. Idk if this has happened to anyone else but it has happened to me more than once. It's still a must have app if you want to zone out and pass time because the better you get the easier you get zoned in!!! 5 stars!!
My favorite and most played game of all time. I've been playing it daily, sometimes for hours, for almost two years now. It is untimed and the game lasts as long as you have moves. The better you get at it, the longer the games last. I love the mix of strategy and luck. The game does not have levels and doesn't get harder so learning the strategy and having more success keeps you interested. One warning: it is EXTREMELY addictive. Since there is no time limit and no levels, it's easy to lose track of time. But it's excellent for relaxing and zoning out.
