QUÉBEC, CANADA - Nov., 11, 2019 - Addiction, the very first app from developer, is now out on iOS platforms.


Merging the numbers to reach the legendary "100" black tile is the ultimate goal in this brain exercise. While it may ring a bell to "1048" and "Threes!" fans, the game play very differently.


In this free game you can merge any two numbers of the same row or column with a difference of +/- 1 or even equal numbers. And you have to play each turn, alternately, horizontally then vertically.


It's all about creating the biggest number and getting the highest score in one single game.


The minimalist game is easy to understand but still ask to think about your moves to get to the highest numbers. A dark mode is included for playing at night, a popular feature lately.


- "I'm pretty proud, as a lone developer, to release my very-first app on the App Store, it was not an easy feat! I have created more than 50 "web minigames" on my website over the years. For my first app I decided to choose Addiction because of its simple mechanics and design coupled with its one-more-game appeal."

- David Allard, Founder, JeuxID.


Addiction released on Nov. 1st as a free download (without any "p2w" in-app purchases) on the App Store, it's available in English, French and Spanish.
