Default Number Tap 2 - Practice Sums & Algebra with my latest game

Let me know if you have any questions about the game, its development, any bugs or feedback you have

There is a lite version with 2 game modes, or a pro version with 4 game modes.

Congrats on the release!
I have a question: is there a reason why there is no restart button in the game (I missed this in the original Number Tap as well)? When I make a few mistakes I often just want to restart the game instead of waiting for a game over.

Also, there is a spelling error in the first screenshot that you probably want to change (multiply is spelled wrong).

Damnit, silly spelling fail

I was thinking of adding a pause option. I didnt want people to cheat though by pausing to freeze the timer and look up the answers. I'll have an experiment and see what I can do

Thanks for the feedback. As a thank you I'll PM you a promo code for the full version tomorrow

I actually thought about a pause option too, since the levels can get quite long and a pause button would be nice, but I agree that it would be too easy to cheat (even when not looking up the answer, just having a bit of extra time to calculate say 414/18 would definitely help) so that would be unfair. If you wanted to add a pause option perhaps you could make it so that after continuing you get a different exercise of the same difficulty (but not lose your multiplier)?

But you don't need a pause option to have a retry or quit button! Just put one in the top of a corner. Since the keypad is at the bottom you don't have to worry about accidental presses on that button.

Now that I think about it, you can already pause the game by double tapping the home button, so the cheat option is already there Perhaps you could do something about that?

Yeah, the game pauses when you open notification center, multitasking or exit the app. I could set it to generate new numbers when the app resumes from a paused state, that wouldn't be too hard.

Also, a retry button in one of the top corners wont be a problem. I'll get working on it tonight. I think the game center leader-boards are broken at the moment, so I'll try and get an expedited review for that, if not, it'll be about a week.
