Threes, the adorable number-squishing, tile-sliding puzzle game, is available to play for free (and without ads) in browsers via desktop and mobile devices. The game is otherwise free (with ads) on Android and iOS, or you can spend $2 for a version without commercial breaks. Designer Asher Vollmer and illustrator Greg Wohlwend announced the browser edition during a Reddit AMA on Thursday.

Threes debuted as a $2 mobile game in February 2014 and accidentally incited a flurry of clones, including 2048. When the developers launched the free, mobile version in June this year, Wohlwend reflected on Threes' clones and its premium pricing structure.

"After the clones started to crop up there were certainly discussions of, 'Should we just put out a free version now?' but I'm glad we didn't," Wohlwend said. "It would have been rushed and we would have made mistakes and probably treated the player poorly in some way like so many free games do."

This isn't the first time Threes has made its way to browsers -- shortly after the game's launch, fan Angela Li created a free, developer-approved version of the game for the web.
