Default Numerous - modern drop7 + new twists



Numerous adds a refreshingly addictive twist to a traditional but wildly popular 'clear the numbers' game formula.

In the basic game rule, you drop number tiles onto a game board from the top, and number tiles that equal the number of tiles in a contiguous row or column of tiles are removed. There are hidden tiles which must be revealed by removing its neighbouring tiles before they can be used. As game level increases, a new row of hidden tiles are added from the bottom, so you must clear the tiles as fast as you can.

Numerous adds a new twist to this: if you trigger chains of removals, you earn bonus items that you can use to get you out of knotty situation. These bonus items are:

- increment item, which adds 1 to a tile value.
- decrement item, which subtracts 1 from a tile value.
- swap item, which interchanges two tiles.
- bomb, which reveal or remove a tile.

As the level increases, hidden rows rise faster, but more bonus item slots are opened up, thus requiring you to gradually change your strategy. As you are free to apply the bonus items to any tile you like, you're always in control of the situation, even as it progressively becomes insanely challenging.

Features of the game:
- Refreshing, addictive twist to a classical number game formula.
- Challenge you to change your strategy as level increases.
- 10 leaderboards that pit you against the world's best, and 10 achievements to unlock.

Numerous is brought to you by the creator of Orion Nebula, Letter Hound, Spell Quest, Word Edge, Beautiful Worm, Number Pharaoh, Primary, Word Bridge, Kungfu Brain, Digi Crush, Super Math Invaders and Memon's Quest.

Default Game Impressions

Drop 7 fans - worth a look at this one. There are some different mechanics, and some ways for getting out of tight spots.

Has iAds, and the graphics are not retina quality. I don't play with sound, so I can't discuss that, but for all those that loved Drop 7, here is something to scratch the itch.. Some may like it, some may not. I think it's pretty reasonable. Worth a look at least.

Polished and fun. Shame about the ads. Hope a premium version comes out - this one's worth paying for.

hi pluto and sciuridae, thank you for your reviews .

sciuridae, I hear you. I'm trying to prepare an 'ads-free' IAP for some of my more popular titles, such as Spell Quest. It will come to Numerous soon .

hi carloz, thank you for trying my game. the sounds are all pitch-shifted version of the original sounds, in order to deliver the kind of subtle, near-bass sound befitting this kind of thinking game.

I've submitted a version with 'No ads' IAP to Apple for review. It should come out sometime next week ...

p.s.
Someone scored 9 million points and reached level 126 in Numerous. My personal record was only level 50. Can you do better than Stinkymcpete on the Game Center leaderboards of Numerous?

Like the game but keep getting an app crashing error. If I press on the right side of my screen in the black border a " title: fatal error in action number 1 of mouse events for glob left released....." Happens every time. I'm on an iPhone 4.
