Numb3rs is a unique puzzle game, involving the turn based selection of numbers off a playing grid, in a challenge to generate the highest score. Each turn a player selects a number in either a vertical or horizontal row. That number is added to the players score.
After the player chooses a number, the 'axis' of the row (vertical or horizontal) switches, and the next player chooses a number. That is then added to their score. The game progresses until there are no numbers left and the player with the highest score wins.
On the first few play through, I admit that I was not convinced of the game-play mechanic behind Numb3rs, but after about 3 rounds, I began to see the strategy required, and the computer difficulty increased to a point where I had to start planning my moves in a more intelligent. Don't be mistaken, what at first seems like a rather arbitrary and skill-less game quickly turns into the complete opposite!
Once you have the basic game-play strategy figured out, there are plenty of modes to explore, include a campaign mode (which in itself includes 3 sub modes), a championship mode where you compete to move up an online leaderboard, and a simple single player mode where you can hone your skills.
All in all, Numb3rs is an excellent game, and a great puzzler for the Android platform. Well worth checking out!
