Four Squares is a simple game: watch the pattern, memorise it, then repeat it. After correctly repeating the sequence it will be replayed but with an extra button at the end. As the sequence gets longer you will have less time to watch the sequence and less time to repeat it.
The 3 modes available provide unique ways of playing the game. Each game mode can be played with easy, normal, or hard difficulty.
Endless is the classic mode that gives you a single life to replay the longest sequence they can.
Time Attack mode gives you 30 seconds to reach the longest sequence they can. Every correct sequence will win your some more time, but every wrong move will lose time!
The aim of Speedrun mode is to reach a sequence of 10 with only 3 lives. Faster completion times are ranked higher.
Screenshots are available for various device sizes. They are provided at full resolution in PNG format. Unedited and framed versions are available in the full screenshots download (2.1MB ZIP).
An App Clip is available that provides the full game experience but with a reduced feature set. All game modes and difficulties are supported, but Game Center and customisations have been removed to reduce the size of the download.
The App Clip can be invoked from Messages, Safari, or by scanning an App Clip code, QR code, or NFC tag. If the App Clip is invoked from a shared challenge the game will be configured with the same mode, difficulty, and sequence.
