McGraw-Hill’s Monster Squeeze game reinforces number recognition and offers a quick and easy way to practice number line concepts and number comparisons. This two-player game runs on the iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch.
Players take turns finding the secret number on a number line. In each round, the monster designates a secret number on a number line. Players try to guess this number by clicking one of the numbers. If the number chosen is larger than the secret number, that number and all larger numbers on the number line are covered by the monster. If the number chosen is smaller than the secret number, that number and all smaller numbers on the number line are covered by the monster. Players take turns clicking numbers until one of them identifies the secret number and wins the round. There are a total of 5 rounds in a game.
Features of Monster Squeeze:
- 2 players (for extra practice, a single player can play as Player 1 and Player 2)
- 5 competitive rounds of play
- Practices number line concepts and comparisons of numbers

It does what it says.
It's a nice idea, but the game is pretty uninspiring. You don't need to think at all to play it - you can just guess any of the available numbers left at random (in fact that is the only way to play it). No progression or challenge. Doesn't really reinforce maths concepts significantly. I got it free, glad I didn't pay for it.
Bought this on a recommendation. Very disappointed. The monster's arms cover all the numbers on the second attempt so the child can no longer see the options. Probably a bug on the recent iOS update but needs to be sorted. Waste of money 😐
Not great :-(
Could be so much better. Needs one player option and some skill element.
Got it free, unfortunately deleted after first go :-(
