– added a share button on all reviews which makes it easier to recommend reviews to your friends!
– a consolidated, improved Invite/Find friends process (go ahead, invite some friends 🙂
– gave the app a beauty treatment 🙂

 

 

 

2. Five-O

Five-O - Curt Stein

*** FREE FOR A LIMITED TIME ***

Five-O is your favorite word game, minus the words!

Instead of letters, the tiles are numbers, and instead of forming words, each sequence of tiles has to add up to a multiple of five, and no sequences may be longer than five tiles.

Features:

Easy to learn rules
Online Multiplayer allowing up to 15 simultaneous matches
“Pass and Play” multiplayer with up to four local players
Single player mode with challenging computer opponents
Fast startup, no waiting around for loading screens or advertisements
Simple controls, just touch and drag the tiles to the board

How to play:

Players take turns placing intersecting sequences of numbers on the board which sum to multiples of five. For example, 7-3-8-7 would be a valid sequence because it adds up to 25. The sequence 3-9-5 is not valid because it adds up to 17 which is not a multiple of five.

On each turn, players may play tiles in one straight line sequence, horizontally or vertically. The first sequence must be played on the center square, and all sequences after that must intersect with tiles already in play.

The score for each play is the sum of all the number tiles in sequences completed on that turn. Colored bonus squares award extra points and multipliers.

At the end of each turn, players draw new tiles to replace the ones played. The game ends when a player plays all of their remaining tiles and there are no more tiles left to draw.

What’s new

Five-O is now Universal!
Play against your friends on iPhone and iPod Touch!
