I'm a fan of this game, from the previous release; worth a look.

I bought it when it was first released. In fact I wasn't aware that it ever disappeared. Assuming this is the same version (or better) as the first release, it's a very well polished game. Normal mode is straightforward and fun. Challenge mode offers specific puzzles to solve. It's basically your standard, but well-polished match-3+ with a math-based twist and some simple power-ups & roadblocks to keep the game interesting. No crazy gimics, simple fun with high replay value. While gameplay itself is nothing alike Trism, I'd but this in the same category.

I've always thought the game was deserving of more hype than it got. Still on my phone since a year ago. Hope it helps.

I remember reviewing the lite version when it first game out, and I loved it. (The full version was $1.99 at the time.) Lots of lovely visuals and addictive gameplay really made this one of the better matching games that still managed to keep itself distantly removed from Bejeweled-type games. For $0.99 it's a steal. In fact, I should put this on my buy list for my next spree, 'cos I never did get the full version back then.

Just about to hit that Big Bad Buy Button in order to find that it is US$1.99 rather than 0.99, what gives?!

It's worth another four quarters

Trust me... There's A LOT you can do. Not just levels, but there's a whole puzzle section too, similar to Tetris DS.

I am torn between this and Wings: Galaxies. Humm, let me think...

I never even heard of Wings before now, and after looking at it, if I had to choose between the two it would still be Numba. It's the best puzzler game I've played so far. You read my review I hope, too lazy to write it out again
