Next - Numbers
By Vito Technology Inc.
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Human brain is like a muscle that should be trained a lot to function properly. Surely, everyday life is a game in itself, but haven’t you ever wished you could find things a little faster or concentrate on one task for a little longer? This app is a great tool just for that. With just a few minutes a day practice you will be able to improve areas of brain activity without even noticing it. We have also built in personal stats so you can keep track of your progress.
"[For] those folks like myself who aren't into RPGs or side-scrollers, but instead love a good brain-teaser." - Steven Sande, TUAW
How to play:
Tap numbers in order, one by one, as fast as you can.
Choose one of two options:
Blitz - the game ends in 60 seconds, your result is how many numbers you’ve managed to find.
Zen - you have unlimited time to find all the numbers, your result is your time.
Implement your own strategy:
- Train reaction by speeding up decisions you made - try to decide without actual thinking about it.
- Train selective attention by looking at whole field searching for a number.
- Train memory by remembering where is the next number you need to tap.
- Train speed and concentration by trying to beat the records you made.
What's New in Version 1.0.3
Bugfixes and improvements
Needs tutorial, contact info, more play options.
This game looks nice. The interface plays well and is easy to figure out.
However, there is an ad page for the production company's different apps, but no page to give information on the company and, most importantly, contact information. I would have contacted the producer first before giving a neutral-poor review but there is no option to do that. There is no way I would buy one of their other apps.
Equally important, it needs to have a tutorial. At the very very least, a button to make a pop-up screen indicating what the different buttons do. How do I build up hints?
It also badly needs different options to play within the four levels, in the two modes (Blitz and Zen). One would be to keep the already-clicked numbers highlighted (not just as a quick hint, as there is a button for that).
Another mode of play would be to click only green numbers with, say, another set of red numbers alongside them on the same board. This color differential is also a fun mind-building puzzle (if not color blind, but it is only an option of play).
Another mode might be to make a "color by number." There would be different screens of intricate stained glass windows, racing the clock to finish the picture.
Simple but very difficult, and still needs prefs! 😕 ⛅️
Update for new version. Giving it a mid-range, "partly cloudy" rating.
Crash bug fixed, but still no prefs; cannot turn off annoying clicks/sounds, which makes it useless when you want to play in a situation where others don't want to hear your game and you don't want to completely mute your device.
Not a young child's game! Basically, this is a speed version of the old Concentration style card game where you memorize a number's position at a glance and then find it on a maze. The faster your time is, the more "improved" supposedly your memory has become. Don't expect it to teach very small children anything but frustration. Older kids might like the challenge, though.
Great game, but..
I like this game, it has nice aesthetics and I like the gameplay, but there is this small problem that I'm having with it that is bugging the hell out of me. When you turn the device a different orientation, the numbers rotate with that orientation, even when the orientation is locked. This is so annoying. I can't lay on my side or on my back to play this game without the numbers turning upside down or sideways. Ugh.. I hope you guys do something about this. I would really appreciate it. It's a great game, just wish I could play it in a more comfortable position.
