Numeric

numeric [noo-mer-ik] (adj): of or pertaining to numbers.

That definition pretty much sums it up. Numeric is a collection of mini games based on math, numbers, and related principles. I've had a lot of ideas about number-based games, but nothing really big enough to stand on its own. So, I figured I would compile them under one application and release updates as they are completed. Sound like a plan? I hope so, because that's what you've signed up for. <evil grin>

Numeric contains two games: Clear the Grid and Keep 'em Coming.

Clear the Grid

The objective of Clear the Grid is to, well, clear the grid of tiles by using all of them to form valid mathematical equations.

An equation is formed by selecting tiles from the grid. Tapping on a tile will select it and add it to the first available slot in the equation near the bottom of the screen. After selecting three number tiles and an operator tile, the equation will be evaluated. If it is correct, all of the tiles you selected will disappear, and you may continue play. If the equation is not valid, you will need to correct it by changing some or all of the tiles. To deselect a tile, either tap the tile in the main grid area or in the equation area.

You can use the options in the Settings/Info area to customize the operators that may appear in the grid. Note that by enabling the operators, they are not guaranteed to be in the grid -- enabling them only allows the chance that they will be used in the randomly generated tiles.

Keep 'em Coming

Keep 'em Coming is a race against the clock to form as many valid mathematical equations as you can before the time limit runs out.

An equation is formed by selecting tiles from the grid. Tapping on a tile will select it and add it to the first available slot in the equation near the bottom of the screen. After selecting three number tiles, the equation will be evaluated using the operator chosen in the options. If it is correct, all of the tiles you selected will be replaced by new ones. If the equation is not valid, you will need to correct it by changing some or all of the tiles. To deselect a tile, either tap the tile in the main grid area or in the equation area.

You can adjust the time limit for each game using the slider in the Settings/Info area. Time limits can be any fifteen second increment between thirty seconds and five minutes.

That's up in the air at the moment.  Stop by every now and then to see what's going on.
