I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say this game could be addicting, in a good way. It’s like Scrabble, but with numbers. If you or someone you know is struggling to learn math or just simply not enjoying the process at all, then may I present to you the Math Blazer app for iPhone. Math Blazer is brought to us by Korner Entertainment SL and may I say this is quite the advanced math problem scenario. You can play online with others or you verses the game, which is pretty fun. Personally, I am the worst at math and I don’t enjoy it. Literally I would never waste my time even joking about math, but for some reason I honestly enjoyed this app. I feel smarter! Where was this app when i was a kid? It’s like a part of my brain is being lit up with every turn. I believe this app acts like a treadmill or a punching bag does in the gym, but in our brain, helping sculpt and shape our brain muscles. At only $1.99 it beats the gym membership prices any day.
Basically I start this Number party by creating an equation out of my tiles. I put this first equation up on the board in the center square. The next move is basically a Scrabble like set up in which the rest of the equations formed must be joined to an existing equation. Like Scrabble, a move should complete the previous equation. Possibly even several if space and the math add up. Also like with Scrabble You can not create any unsolvable equations or expressions so they must be solvable accurate expressions. After your turn, if there are tiles left each player fills their hand back up to begin creating new equations. If you run out of tiles and the other player just used his last one, the game ends. Even if there are unused tiles, the game could end if you and the other player both get stuck and have to pass consecutively.
There are three things you can do if the tiles in your hand have no way of making a proper equation. You can exchange as many tiles as you want with the other players. You can also opt to create a Numerical Expression without scoring or you can simply Pass and of course, you can always resign if you just gotta go!
I can honestly say this app leaves my brain feeling massaged & worked out all in one surprisingly fun little app. I wish I had had this app growing up as a kid, I probably would have done much better in math. I would totally recommend this app to anyone especially someone like me who strongly dislikes math for a fun way to learn.

I would give Math Blazer, a game which was supposed to look like the long-forgotten Numble game that was made by the same people who did Scrabble, a two-star rating at best. Too many equal signs, where they give you an additional equal sign for each turn, but only has precisely 52 digits and 24 math symbols per game; it’s also difficult to run out of tiles!
Hopefully, there will be something like Cross NumbersPosted on May 21st, 2010 at 12:56 am by Marty (Costa Mesa)
for the I-Pod touch where all you would fill in is any digit from 0 to 9, with over 10,000 puzzles to select! At least I only had to waste a total of two
dollars, while others wasted $5,000–and counting!
