"An enjoyable and well-implemented game" - iPad Board Games
Comments by our play testers:
"Wow. This is awesome!"
"It's like Sudoku crossed with a Rubik's Cube!"
"Difficult... but addictive!"
• Over 20 different game boards to choose from
• Random number assignments and solutions (no two games exactly alike)
• Create and play your own boards
• Multiple play modes, including Puzzle Mode
• Five different graphics themes
• Customizable panel positions and background colors
• Control music library from within game
• Training Mode and built-in Help Feature
How to play:
The board contains 81 tiles (9 rows and 9 columns). Click on tiles to change their sign, thus altering the sum of their rows and columns. When the sum equals the goal (your target), the row or column is solved. Solve every row and column to clear board.
Keep clearing boards to unlock additional game content (new boards, new themes, new game modes, etc).
What's New in Version 1.1
Fixed Music Player Bug
Fixed Close button
Exit Buttons Added to Fullscreen mode
Needs some optimization
Trying to play this on an 11 inch Macbook Air is very difficult if not in fullscreen mode, as the bottom of the board and some buttons in the options screen is obstructed by the dock, or actually run past the bottom of the screen. The game was clearly made for people with bigger screens, which is probably every other Mac other than the 11 inch Air. Fullscreen mode makes the game look 8-bit, with very pixelated edges and blurry text.
The concept itself is nice, and I would love to try a version where I was actually able to see the entirety of the app, but as of right now I cannot. It's not enjoyable to play with part of the game blocked off screen. Hopefully the developer can remedy this so that I can change this to the 4 or 5 stars that the app deserves.
