Zen Triple 3D is a three-dimensional matching and sorting game. The player must collect three identical items floating within a clear bubble in front of a high-quality nature background. The player's mission per each level is to remove all the items before time runs out.
The bubble provides a 360-degree view of the objects within it. That said, the player might have difficulty with rotation and perception of distance. The bubble turns slowly. Additionally, some items appear smaller than other ones.
The game provides seven empty box spaces on the table below the bubble for item transfer and matches. When the player selects three matching objects, the game removes the items from the table. When they fail to select matching ones, they run out of empty spaces.
Over time, the number of items in the bubble increases. If the player completes consecutive matches, they earn multipliers. At the end of a level, they earn a final time bonus and receive an opportunity to use a score multiplier. In most cases, they must watch ads to receive these benefits.
Zen Triple 3D offers boosters and tools to enhance play, including a magnet, an automatic matcher and a 10-second freeze on the clock. The player also collects coins that they can use to pay for options. Once they reach specific milestones, such as completion of a certain number of levels or collection of a certain number of stars, they can unlock treasure chests filled with free coins and boosters, new item sets and background themes.
