Number Fill Free: Crossword Fill-in Puzzles
By Clinton H Weir
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Welcome to Number Fill, puzzle fans, where you can play classic number fill-in puzzles on your mobile device! Choose from 5x5 or 11x11 (or one of several other sizes available with purchase). The grid will be filled with blank spaces and it is your job to use logic to figure out how to put the given numbers into the grid so they all fit. It's like a crossword puzzle, but with numbers instead of words.
Don't worry - if you get stuck you can ask for a hint or you can make a guess about where a number should go. You will receive immediate feedback as to whether you were right or not. Finish the puzzle in the fewest moves possible, then challenge your friends to beat your best.
To play, press one of the numbers below the play field, then touch the square in the puzzle field to place it.

So I don't normally write reviews. And I don't know if devs even read them. But I think this game as is would be a maybe 2 star. I gave it one extra for potential. It's a great idea that could just use some minor tweaks.
First off, as is, this game is not a puzzle game. It is a trial and error game due to the fact it won't allow you to input a wrong answer. Though changing that as is would make this game near impossible. A solution would be, instead of starting with a blank screen, start the player off with a few blocks filled in already as a starting point (the amount of filled in blocks could lead to a difficulty setting as well). This would also make it fair for you to allow the player to enter incorrect answers, ultimately making them fail the puzzle.
Next, I agree with other post. There are no real instructions, though to me the idea of the game is pretty self explanatory. Though I still haven't figured out what the number on the right is on the level select screen.
Lastly auto filling blocks is counter productive and adds to the simplicity of the game. If someone wants a hint that's what you have a hint button for.
Anyways that's my three cents, take it or leave it. This game has a lot of potential, but if no changes are made I will be deleting. There's plenty of puzzle games out there that achieve the ultimate goal of a puzzle, and that is to make one think.
No instructions and you click on number below and then area you want it puts a random number in and no way to change it
