Triangle Twisters in Focus Mode

Triangle Twisters features two modes: Frenzy Mode and Focus Mode.

Frenzy Mode[edit]

In Frenzy Mode, the entire field is covered with triangles, and the player has sixty seconds to clear as many triangles they can by connecting four or more. They start on level one, and by clearing thirty triangles they progress to the next level. The player earns ten points for every individual triangle they clear, and by clearing a level, the player earns one hundred points for every second remaining, and the time limit increases up to thirty seconds. The game is over when the player runs out of time. Additionally, clearing triangles in the pattern of a bigger triangle or a hexagon results in 200 and 500 bonus points, respectively.

Focus Mode[edit]

In Focus Mode, the player must position the triangles in the pattern shown on the top screen in order to clear them. In total, there are fifty puzzles to clear. The player can also press X Button or tap the "Reset" button on the touch screen at any time in order to restart a puzzle. Clearing four triangles but not in the pattern shown causes the player to lose ten seconds. By clearing a level, the player earns the same bonus as in Frenzy Mode, for a maximum possible score of 450000.
