Just Get 10... If only it was that easy. This is a puzzle game where you must plan your strategy in advance and always be thinking several moves ahead if you're to reach that elusive number: ten.
I can't get 10!
The concept of Just Get 10 sounds like you should be able to complete the game in a few minutes: match together numbers on adjacent squares on the board until you get to ten. For example, match a block of ones (as many as you like) to get two, match a block of twos to get threes, and so on. But the really important part is that you can decide where the new number (so a two if you've matched ones) should go. If you chose the wrong spot you will be left with isolated numbers that you can't match.
It's challenging and just when you think you've cracked the technique, you make one wrong move and it all goes to pieces (there's no undo button). The great thing about Just Get 10 is that even if you get ten in one game there is no guarantee you'll get ten in the next one. One thing to note is that you can only play a few games in a row before you run out of lives and must wait to 'regenerate'.
Should be easy... But it's not
While it's easy to make the moves (one tap to select which number you want and a second tap to select the position you want that block of numbers consolidated into on the board) this game takes some real thought.
Don't be fooled into thinking that this is one of those games that starts off easy and increases in difficulty as you go along. Just Get 10 has one default level: hard. It's not stupidly tough, though, you can complete it as long as you are able to think three moves ahead.
Looks like child's play
It's so brightly colored with such a simple design that Just Get 10 looks a little like it's designed for children, which just makes you feel worse when you can't get ten, again.
The plink plink sounds when you match numbers are, surprisingly, not that annoying. It's a celebratory plink when you make a good match, a slightly scolding plink when you've made a wrong move.
Just Get 10 is an easy game to get into and you can pick up the idea straightaway, but as for the best strategy to take to reach your goal - that takes longer to suss out. Challenging, very addictive (especially if you've played a lot of games without getting to ten) and with a pleasant design, this is a game that will have you hooked and coming back for more in no time.
