Game Giveaway of the day — Numericon

There is very simple idea lying at the heart of Numericon: it’s necessary to build the chains of numbers in such manner that the last one would equal the sum of the previous ones. It is easy to learn, but hard to master. And won’t the simplicity of the first levels deceive anyone - the further the player gets in to the game, the more challenging it becomes and it’s more interesting to play it.

There is very simple idea lying at the heart of Numericon: it’s necessary to build the chains of numbers in such manner that the last one would equal the sum of the previous ones. It is easy to learn, but hard to master. And won’t the simplicity of the first levels deceive anyone - the further the player gets in to the game, the more challenging it becomes and it’s more interesting to play it. The time lessens and the bonuses gradually turn from entertainment in to serious instrument, which helps to manage the level in the most effective way.

It’s necessary to mark the Puzzle regime, which will undoubtedly attract those who like to solve puzzles. It’s pretty pleasant addition to the game where it’s necessary to solve refined logical tasks without paying attention to the time limit and without vain hunting on the bonuses. Easy and with pleasure.

I only can get 72 of the 74 medals :-(
Anyone knows how to get the medals of survival mode?(text is "score 10000/20000/50000 points in survival mode") its not total score or I would have gotten the 20000 long ago, but its not single score either or I wouldn't have gotten the 10000
Please help me, would like to get all of them.

This game installed easily and had nice visuals but after quitting the game ,my computer rebooted by itself.After this it was very difficult to enter my account in normal or safe mode.Even the return to last known good configuration did not work.After many attempts I finally managed to keep the shift key down while booting that I was finally able to enter my account.So immediatly I removed this game and ever since the removal my computer is behaving in a normal manner.

Thanks for offering this again! I used to have it and would like to play it again. You definitely need to enjoy working out a puzzle to appreciate this one, but it's a doozy - new type for me anyway. The developer has a great imagination.

Thanks Meridian 93 ,Robin Games and of course Game Giveaway of the Day for another mindflexer.

I enjoyed this game last time but got through it too fast and was left wanting it to be more difficult (not geometry or trig, mind you, just somewhat more challenging)

I don't know where you're getting the match 3 comparison from.

Sure, the earliest levels give you smaller numbers that may seem to follow that kind of pattern, but there's a lot more to it than knowing that 2+2+2 is 6 and being able to follow that with your cursor. Numericon is about being able to do addition quickly in your head; you are not simply 'matching tiles' to get to whatever one is your goal.

It's not as easy as it seems when you can go in several directions and when time is not on your side. Sometimes you have to get to every tile, sometimes the point is to make as many matches as you can. The first time this game was offered, I got frustrated later on in the game because I didn't have enough time to complete the level. It took several tries, but I finally got through it all.

If this isn't your kind of "puzzle game', fine. But passing judgement on it because of an overdone genre is unfair. What about a repeat of Ingenious, is that just another stupid match 3 game?

Not a bad way to kill an hour or so of your life. Mostly I struggled trying to click those dropping gems that fall too fast - much faster than with other games . . . I think. Considering this could be used to strengthen math skills, it might be better if slowed down some so as not to add discouragement to those playing.

here you are TS:

http://www.meridian93.com/

With respect to whether or not this version is an update. Someone mentioned previously that the file size between the last and this was different; that may indicate a new version, though on checking each I found that the extra size of the previous folder was accounted for by a cached and a configuration file, which are automaiclly setup when you start playing the game. All the essential files are exactly the same size apart from the unistallers dat file which is 5.2Kb smaller than the previous giveaway. Therefore I'm certain it is the same version. I think I've got a version from each time it's been given away (on different computers of course)

To Harpo: This is the same version of the game offered earlier, so no changes. I still have it, so didn't download, but this reminded me to play the one I do have! Good game! Just wish the blocks didn't "jiggle" while waiting for you do make a move. (silly things like that get to me...)

Good game to sharping your mind since you have to add so many numbers in some different ways. There are levels that you have to touch all the numbers at least once in other to complete. But, there are levels that you don't know why you play because there is no "purpose"! Such are boring levels! As you progressing further, the alloted time becomes shorter. I got to where the count down time started at 1 min to complete touch all the numbers! It is just impossible. Since the numbers are completely random to replace the sequence you just clear, you will be stucked while the time is counting down. Oh .. the freeze time is way too short (5 seconds) each time you clear the tile which has the freeze icons.
Good to kids to learn to add numbers quickly. I guess, the main point of this game is just that. You will not be able to complete the game!
And, not be able to complete the game would make people loose interest.

Great game and well worth the download. I got this one the last time it was offered and it is enjoyed by my wife, my kids, and me. Despite what BrianZachary insists, it is NOT a simple match 3 game and he would have realized that the game play changes and difficulty level ramps up if you get past two levels.

This is a great game! In fact, my 15-year-old enjoyed watching me play it so much that he wants it installed on his computer! And I think it will also help my 10- and 6-year-old with their math skills. And my wife enjoys puzzle games, so this game is one for the whole family (at least mine :-))!

The two bonuses I have found the most useful so far is the honeycomb (which is a bomb that blows up adjoining numbers) and the freeze tile (which freezes the countdown).

Great game! Thanks GGAOTD!

This is the first time I have come across a 'repeat' (of games I have gotten from here) since I found this site a few months ago. I am on dial-up and between sharing my computer with hubbyand 18, 13, 6, and 4 yr old kids I can never get the games tested out to make a comment. I just want to say that I agree with Susan #20 about this game. Very fun, but frusterating to me as I can't think fast enough to make matches! :) Thanks to Robin Games and the GGAOTD team for this game. I love this site!

This is a game I still have from the last time it was offered. It's a fun game and I will encourage my son to download it on his computer. For children I think if you can combine learning with a game you have a win win deal. Children can play and have fun plus they are using their minds. I think parents should download this for their children to try. Thank you GGAOTD for another nice game. I would like to thank the publisher but I'm not sure if it's Robins Games or Meridian 93. So I will thank you both.

Thanks for another offer - downloaded and setup very quickly; ran fine on my Windows XP. I did give this game a try, but it is not for me ... counting numbers over and over and over. I agree, would be a great one for kids math skills, but not enjoyable for me. I uninstalled within 20 minutes and completed the company survey. Thanks.

Nice, pleasant thoughtful puzzle game. I assume this is from the same group that brought us Destiny Architect, for it has the same feel. Though it is time based, the relaxed atmosphere (like Destiny Architect) never give you that harried feeling that Tetris can,

#17 Ambrosia, Thank you for your instructions on how to play this game. I already know how to play the game or I wouldn't have gotten past the first level.

This game IS a drag-line match 3 in the sense that you drag the cursor from one tile through a set of tiles to "match" them and make them disappear. The only difference between this game and others like it is this one has numbers instead of gems or letters or whatever. Match 3 games are not just defined by swapping tiles.

I said it was boring because I got bored adding up the same sequences of numbers on the same board over and over and wishing the level would end quicker than it did. Maybe it seems more like a kids game to me, I don't know. There's only so many times I can stand to add 1 plus 1 to equal 2. But hey, if everyone else enjoys the game, great. It just isn't for me. Like I said, I have plenty of other games to keep me occupied.

I got this the last time is was offered. Loved it.
Different than the usual game. Also, a good game for playing a few levels, than stopping, if you only have a short time to relax.

There can definintely be a strategy element in choosing upgrades, as you can only have a certain number of them, so you cannot pick them all. I was smarter with my upgrades the seond time through, once I had seen what the offerings were.

This is one of my favorite games from GGOTD.

Maybe I've done it wrong all this time but had no trouble.

With EVERY GAOTD I've installed, I've installed the game or App first (Ticking the box asking it NOT to run at the end) THEN click on the Activate icon.
Surely, Easier to activate something that is on the PC rather than something that is'nt?

It's worked for me every single time so a bit of logic works wonders :-)

This is a great game! I got this the last time it was offered on here and I've had a blast playing it. A simple addition-based puzzle game that gets complex enough in a hurry to keep you thinking and strategizing on what move should be next to keep you from getting stuck.

For all who missed it, or who weren't aware of the site then, this should be a definite download; especially for the puzzle gamers!

Easy to install. I use Zip Genius 6 and where from one screen you can click on the "activate" button. A box comes up that it's activated, then click on "setup". You have the option of adding a desktop icon then starting the game.

Cute game and I think it will be valuable for anyone, especially school kids, to play a game while sharpening their math skills.

It's a little on the slow side when loading the game, but it performs just fine after you get going. The music is annoying, but you can turn it off under "options".

I give this game a thumbs up, especially if you have kids.

#12 BrianZachary... this is not a match three game. It is nothing like a match three game and if you were playing it as such that would explain why you did not understand the game and thought it boring. In Numericon your goal is to clear all the tiles to reach the picture underneath. You do this by adding tiles together to sum the number of the largest tile. For instance, if the tile you are going for is 4, then you would add together surrounding tiles in any combination to get to the sum of 4. 2+2=4 or 1+2+1=4 or 3+1=4 or 1+1+1+1=4 ... you will find you at times have several choices that could add up to the total of the tile you are trying to remove. The puzzle comes in with making the correct choice in not only what tiles to add up to the higher number tile, but also in whether that tile is the tile you are supposed to be attempting to add up to or not. Your goal of removing all the tiles will fail if you do not choose the correct tiles, either as the sum or as the numbers to get to the sum. It can be quite challenging especially at higher levels to choose correctly.

#10 M. Muller... If you can only play the trial version, with the 60 minute limit, you did not activate the game before you began playing. Once you start playing the game, I believe the activation will not work. So you will need to delete the game and reinstall it, and make sure you activate it before you begin playing it. Instructions are in the downloaded material.

Everyone...

I downloaded this game during the last offering and have enjoyed it. It is one of the ones that I have kept on my computer as I return to it every couple of weeks when I get some spare time and inclination. It is well put together, the graphics are good, I don't remember the music as I usually have the sound turned off on games. I recommend it. I have had no problems running it at all on my Win XP system. Good luck and enjoy!

Marthie comment #10 , you must activate the game using the activation module before you install the game. There should be a read me an activation and a seperate set up module. click on the activation module first, which is the one with an image of a key on it, then set up the program. It may be that you just need to click on the activate button, though I think it's supposed to be the other way around. I hope that works for you. :)

@ #10 (M. Muller) - did you run the activate program? If not, do that. If you did, not sure why you are getting the 60 minute issue.


I like this game, but am not sure what all the bonuses do (if anything).

Every so often, I am presented with a screen from which I am to pick one of 4 things. I'm not sure what the honeycomb actually does. Is there a page which actually lists the different options and what they actually do?

Thanks,
Bart

I only played the first 2 levels and I was already bored with this game. This is not a puzzle game like the description says, it's another version of a drag-line match 3. I don't know if there is a goal to work towards or if you just play one level after another without any real storyline. Like I said, I only played the first 2 levels. I am uninstalling this as I already have a few other games of this type that are at least a little more exciting to me.
