Review – Numolition for iPad

Share This:


Numolition is a simple but addictive game.

There are many levels.  Completing a number of levels will unlock challenges.

How to play:

When you start the game you are walked through some simple levels.  The idea is to explode groups of matching numbers.  You can explode numbers that are next to each other.  You can move the boxes to get numbers next to each other.  You can also move a box with a number on top of another box and it will create a new box with the sum of the two numbers.  You can only “add” numbers up to the number 9.  Here is an example from Level 8.



Move the top box with “1” to the left so it is next to the other box with a “1”.  Explode the ones.  Move the box with the”3″ on top of the box with a “2” and it will become a box with a “5”.  Now you can explode all the 5’s and complete the level.

That was simple.  Everything went along swimmingly until Level 19 when I had to put on my thinking cap.


I had to restart the level a few times until I was able to complete it.  There is a curved arrow at the top to restart the level.

I am sure it will get even more complicated as I go on to higher levels, towers and other challenges.

There are no navigation words.  Everything is done by touching buttons with symbols.  I found the app relatively easy to learn.  The app has a “comic” look to it  (You may have noticed the level pictures are a little crooked) which may not appeal to all.


As for me, I did not worry about the look, I was just trying to complete the levels.

Pros:  It is very easy to learn the game, but it is still challenging.  It is a game that makes you think.

Cons:  The game is portrait mode only.   It would be nice to undo one move at a time instead of having to redo the entire level.

Here is an App Store link for Numolition.  It is available for $1.99.

Disclosure:  A promo code for this app was provided by the publisher.
