IMPORTANT NOTE: 4444 is "try & buy". The free version features 30 levels (including 12 tutorial levels) + 1 out of the 3 Arcade levels (endless). In-app purchases allow to unlock full content.
4444''s gameplay is super easy to grasp too. Four squares of the same colour and size merge to form a bigger square of the same colour. Join all the squares on the board into one and complete the level!
Simplicity is only apparent though, as the game unfolds, levels get more and more challenging and new elements are introduced to keep puzzles always brain-teasing and fun.

--- Pocket Gamer review ---
"I like this tricky puzzle game. The idea is to fill four adjacent squares with the same colour so they''ll merge to become one big square. Do this with the entire playfield - thus filling the screen with one colour - and you win.
You have to inspect the queue of incoming colours, look at your board, and think carefully about which square to fill in next. In the timed mode, however, you have to think quickly about which square to fill in next.
The difficulty is quickly ramped up, and new ideas are introduced at a rapid pace. That includes a nuisance spider creature who scores through bricks and splits them into ever-smaller quarters.
It''s tough, but it''s fun."
