Some say there are two kinds of people in this world: those who cringe when they see numbers and those who get a thrill when they see numerical symbols, whether it’s in an excel file, an infographic, or even a mobile game. If you’re part of the latter, then you’ll definitely enjoy a new Android game where all you can see are numbers (and some shapes and colors too).
Welcome to the world of Sum It!, a number puzzle game where you don’t really need to be a mathematical genius to win. It would help if you can do quick and simple mental math though. The object of the game is to bring the number of your box to zero. You can do that by sliding it over circles that have numerical values as well. The value of the circle is deducted from the value of the square. You go on and on, until the box becomes zero. Sounds simple enough? Well, you should know that not all games are that simple.
The popularity of games like Sudoku (both the offline and online versions), 2048 and others has given rise to the emergence of minimalistic math and numbers games. The graphics are simple, the rules are basic, but if you really love numbers, then these games are definitely your Angry Birds and your Plants vs Zombies.
Sum It! is available for free from the Google Play Store. A minor update has made the game available for even more devices, with some necessary bug fixes. There are no in-app purchases needed, so feel free to enjoy your numbers without worrying about dollars.
