Five-O is your favorite word game, minus the words!
Instead of letters, the tiles are numbers, and instead of forming words, each sequence of tiles has to add up to a multiple of five, and no sequences may be longer than five tiles.
"This is a great must have iPad game. And I love the fact that it really works your mind muscles. It is a very simple game but it will get you hooked." - tcgeeks.com
"The price is right, and the game is fun as well as educational. I’d very much recommend it, especially if you’re looking for something the whole family can enjoy or even just for the kids." - ipadboardgames.org

How to play:
Players take turns placing intersecting sequences of numbers on the board which add up to multiples of five. For example, 7-3-8-7 would be a valid sequence because it adds up to 25. The sequence 3-9-5 is not valid because it adds up to 17 which is not a multiple of five.
On each turn, players may play tiles in one straight line sequence, horizontally or vertically. The first sequence must be played on the center square, and all sequences after that must intersect with tiles already in play.
The score for each play is the sum of all the number tiles in sequences completed on that turn. Colored bonus squares award extra points and multipliers.
At the end of each turn, players draw new tiles to replace the ones played. The game ends when a player plays all of their remaining tiles and there are no more tiles left to draw.
What's New in Version 2.8.4
Minor bug fixes
Not Easy But Fun
I've had this game for a long time and enjoy playing against the computer. I play the hardest level and lose more than I win but I win often enough to want to keep playing. The game is part strategy and part luck (which numbers you receive each round). Very easy game to learn.
Soooooo Much Fun
This game is so much fun that I have almost forgotten about the other games that were my favorites. Now I can add Five-O to that list. It is fun, but challenging at the same time. This is my new go-to game of choice. If you like word and/or Sudoku-type puzzles, you will enjoy playing this game.
Scoring calculation is STILL wrong
This was reported back in 2013 and the developer still hasn't fixed it. On the hard option the game gives more points to the computer than it gives you. Let's say I have two sequences and one of them has x2. My score would be 1st seq + (2nd seq x 2) whereas for the computer it's (1st seq + 2nd seq) x 2. So the computer always gets more points since it cheats. It also seems the computer gets way more 10s and 5s than I do.
