The Numbl is really interesting. You will find 20 tiles, and you have to click those tiles to sum up to the needed number (this number changes after each turn).

Your aim is to remove the required no. of tile from the board, as soon as possible. The game will feature a timer (running continuously), a progress bar (this will indicates the no. of tiles you will have to remove from the board), and a move counter (this will indicate the no. of moves you made to clear the board). In case, you have crossed the total sum needed, obtained from those tiles, the board will flash red. Finally when the game ends, your accuracy reading will be displayed.

This game has a dual player support, where you and your friend can compete with each other.

When you open a new game, the tiles will fall down from the top up on to the board making it appear modern pattern. When considering the sound effects, it has got no music but only regular sound effects that are clear and complete.

Even if you are going to play single game, Numbl will actually make you addictive. A reasonable shortcoming would be that the game would appear short, when you finish mastering it.
