There's nothing that Numby the robot would rather do, than count to ten and back again.
Help Numby count up to 10 and he'll learn a new song. There’s even a way to make Numby play back the song on his onboard synth.
If you pay close attention, you'll also meet 10 ghosts that live inside Numby’s machine-belly.
About Pitaru & Paterson:
Seeing each of our young kids learn to count sparked our imagination. We wanted to explore the simple act of counting from zero to ten in weird and wonky ways.
As we're both coders, we wanted to infuse Numby with a few ideas from our craft. You might notice that Numby counts down to 0 rather than 1 (just like coders do). There’s also light references to Arrays (and even Multi-Dimensional ones).
We'll continue to teach him new tricks and surprise you with updates.
What's New in Version 1.0
This is a major update. Numby has learned to play new songs on his robot-synth. He now has new range of motion which gives him the ability to count both up and down. In addition, 10 new ghost friends have now taken up residence inside his machine-belly.
Fun and Educational. What are you waiting for...
Excellent animation, easy to use, and not just for kids. Kids could learn how to count with this app, but it also doubles as a musical toy. What are you waiting for... Buy it already. Thank them later.
Um, I'm 33, and I just spent 30 mins counting to 10 and back
