I can see why this app was a nominee at the 2015 International Mobile Game Awards for Best Meaningful Play - it’s a real brainteaser of a game!

“twelve” is a tiny puzzle game based on numbers in a grid that you move around, match and grow. Inspired by the concept of 2048, this app goes that step further as you only need to reach 12 (and the numbers go up by only one each time). It may sound easy, but the grid fills up quickly and you really need to think ahead…

There are four different levels of difficulty in “twelve”, your game saves automatically and you also have an ‘undo’ button. You can share your score with friends, unlock achievements and even hit the leaderboard if you can get a high enough score!
