Villains lurk in the streets of Infinity City. Our only hope is the Numbers League. Assemble a team of superheroes and use the sum of their incredible powers and ingenious devices to capture as many villains as you can.
In Numbers League, clever use of basic math skills will save the day. The more you play the sharper these skills will become until no villain is safe from your numerical onslaught.
Ages 5 and up. The Minion-level game can be mastered by a five year old, the Superhero-level game will challenge even math-savvy parents and teachers, and Custom levels allow for a learning experience anywhere in between.
Play with your family, your friends, or by yourself-- up to four players can play on a single iPad.
Also, three robots of different skill levels are ready to join in any game.
Tally ho! Use your fingers, use your toes. Use a pencil and a piece of paper if you like. Use the hint feature to show you what’s possible and a timer if you want to make the game even more challenging.
"[Numbers League] does a masterful job of giving kids a reason to practice math facts." - USA Today

"...that rare combination of fun/challenging gameplay that's also good for you. ...outstanding. Hands down the best edutainment money I have spent."
- customer AlterDon
"The Numbers League app is an incredibly fun way to practice your basic math facts. The combination of arithmetic and wacky comic book-style superheroes will draw in even the most reluctant child. My kids beg to play this game. The app is also a perfect electronic representation of the original Numbers League card game. I recommend this to anyone from age 5 to adult. Kids aren't necessary to enjoy this challenging game."

What's New in Version 1.1.0
Added some unfortunate surprises for captured villains, some behind-the-scenes performance improvements, and support for mPact efficacy testing.
Fun math? Who would have thought?
Fun graphics, fun music, fun rewards for catching bad guys with difficulty-tunable math makes this a fun game for me, as an adult, to wake up my math mind. I keep coming back to it, and updates keep making the capture screens fresh and amusing.
It's engaging for kids or adults. Life gives math purpose, and so does this game. The problem with teaching math is putting math in a purposeful context. Few people do math just to do it. We do it toward some other goal. So does this game. Meanwhile the exercise makes the math mind stronger.
If you have kids, get this game. If you don't, well, neither do I, and I like this game. It's at least as entertaining as games that only entertain, and the skills it exercises are actually useful when trying to center a picture on a wall (wall length minus picture length divided by two is the margin), or work with your home budget any of the other places that common math helps you solve life problems.
Common core aligned
This means the lowest gameplay level is numbers through 14. I'd like to meet a four year old who can add three numbers over multiple cards ex. Nine numbers added together on the simplest level for example. Hints give you multiple villain suggestions for instance you can capture villains with the numbers 4,7, or 9 you'd still have to add multiple cards or ex, hints not useful. Six numbers to find a correct answer. I don't believe all these glowing reviews unless your kid is a bit older no way. I've got a super smart one and although the game itself is stellar and slightly brilliant the ability to dial down the double digit numbers would be appreciated. You need to already know your adding up to ten pretty well to play this and enjoy it IMO. We will be filing away on the cloud for now, disappointed as reviews led me to believe younger kids could have adjustable gameplay like setting a range of numbers for totals to make it easier. It is not adjustable that way. Website lists all the common core identifiers.
Very well done; a favorite game
One of my second grader's top three educational games on the iPad - and I enjoy it, too! The gameplay itself is excellent and motivating, without being high pressure. I especially appreciate that the default setting has the timer turned off. One suggestion: it would be hugely helpful to be able to select shorter games (15-20 villains) with more complex math concepts, such as negative number villains. Especially for students with less patience, shorter attention spans, or other special needs, the games with the more challenging math can be too long. Otherwise, a top-notch game. Thank you!
