Another Addictive and Fun Game for Your Kindle
on April 17, 2012
This is really not what I needed right now in my life - yet another very addictive game for my Kindle. I downloaded it and played it for 45 minutes straight during my lunch break at work, and it is fun, challenging, makes you think a bit and has you lose all sense of time. I will also be putting this on my children's Kindles as this is a good one to get them to think creatively.
You are given a set of "blank" spots in a math equation (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division) that you need to fill in with a set of pre-populated tiles of various numbers and math operators (the + and - signs, etc.). It gets progressively harder, and the game has 100 puzzles for you to play. It's pretty straight forward to play with your eInk Kindle, as you use the 5-way controller and the page forward / backward keys. If you do get stuck or just can't figure it out, there is a "hint" type of icon you can press that will give you the answer - use it as a last resort as it will reveal everything vs. giving you a hint for one of the empty spots on the puzzle.
As mentioned above, there are 100 puzzles, and in these categories:
Intro puzzles - 2
Addition puzzles - 20
Subtraction puzzles - 16
Addition and subtraction puzzles - 20
Multiplication or division puzzles - 12
Mixed puzzles - 30
As I type this review, the game is free for your Kindle - even if they charged a few bucks for it, I would say it is well worth it!
