Secret Numbers - NEW AND NOTEWORTHY ACCOLADE BY APPLE!

SECRET NUMBERS is the new app from PrimaryApps and Lightworx and is out TODAY!
It is our first app that we've worked on together and is aimed at helping primary school age children with their maths skills.

Rules for the game
1) Choose the size of the number you would like to hide in the box.
2) Start by guessing what you think the secret number might be.
3) The iPad touch will tell you if your guess is higher or lower than the secret number.
4) See how many guesses it takes you to work out what the secret number is!

It helps your child with the following:-
* Understanding of the number system.
* Understanding of place value.
* Keeps them engaged in a fun, vibrant way.
* Makes learning fun!

The app is available in all territories for 59p (or equivalent)

To coincide with the launch of SECRET NUMBERS, the PrimaryApps website has also just been launched.

I did get to test it out. I also gave it to my friend's son to play, and he got on with it ok.

We gave it 3 stars on the uk app store.

We both found it rather one dimensional. Every level is open from the start, and there isn't any achievements or progression, nor any rewards.

While the kids enjoy playing through it, they are unlikely to go back to it very often in it's present state.

The sounds and graphics are fine, and suitable for the game, but there needs to be more variety in the gameplay.

An easy mode that indicated with green, yellow and red how far off you were from the number could be a nice addition.

Statistics, trophies and characters to collect could give it some long needed longevity.

A good, fun way of practising and learning numbers, but the joy is ultimately short-lived.

(GC = BUNGLEZ) (OF = farmersuitical) (Plus+ = bungle747) (Crystal = bunglez)

I review apps and games frequently in the UK app store, and here on the forums. If you want anything reviewed, just ask.
