I've been feeling slightly discouraged after playing Threes on short sessions for a week. The problem is not that I only get to the 192 card on most runs, but that when I do manage to get to higher points I am not even aware of what I actually did better. I apply the exact same ideas and care and end up with weirdly varying results. I looked up on the interwebs to see if I'm missing some sort of strategy and I seem to have come upon the same strategies that everyone else does.
I honestly don't care about the difficulty in a game if I feel actual feedback from my decisions and technique, much like how Patrick feels about Spelunky and Dark Souls, for instance. However once a mechanic starts to depend too much on luck I lose interest.
So the question is, does anyone else feel this? Is the game really like this or am I missing something? I do like it and would love keep on liking it.
