Last semester, Andy's younger sister, Samantha, joined the ranks of the Topeka West photography students when she enrolled in Photography 1. During that time she showed me a numbers game that Andy was in the process of designing for the iPod Touch, iPhone, and the soon-to-be-released iPad.
This weekend I received an email from Andy stating that his game is now available on Apple's App Store and the game is called Numbl (a combination of the words number and jumble).
Who knew that addition could be so addictive? Numbl is an entertaining math workout for your brain. It's perfect for a quick game, or an endless two-player battle against a friend!
Numbl tests your simple, speedy addition skills. To play, touch numbered tiles as fast as you can to reach a target sum, which is displayed at the top of the screen. Once each tile is used, it disappears. See how quickly you can clear the screen. You'll be surprised at how soon your skills improve!
See how your time compares to other players around the world in the top-100 high score leaderboard. Then, show off your addition wizardry via Facebook and Twitter.
How cool is this that a past Topeka West student is creating apps for the iPod and iPhone? Go Andy!!
Update: I was finally able to download Numbl from the App Store (and updated my iPhone software while I was at it) and I have to honestly tell you that it is an amazing game! The graphics are gorgeous and the gameplay is quick and addictive. You want to constantly keep improving your time. I'll have to take on my son in a two-player challenge. He's kind of a math-genius so I'll be lucky if I beat him even one time!
