Very straight forward game. Chain various series of numbers together to earn points. It starts simple with 1-2-3, then it adds 4 to create chains like 1-2-4, 1-2-3-4, and you can always do three or more blocks of the same number, 4-4-4-4-4.

There are various obstacles like fire blocks that deactivate when they burn up and can't be used. Ice blocks can't be accessed until they thaw (either by time or thawing them with a fire block). Some blocks change number each time you make a chain.

There are three modes: classic, endless, and puzzle. It's fun in short bursts as a way to zone out and kill a bit of time. Sadly, when you exit the game it doesn't save your place in classic or puzzle, so by the time things start getting really interesting with higher numbers and obstacle blocks, the repetition has already worn down my interest in playing a bit. It'd be nice to exit and then start where I left off the next time I start it up. If it saved progress I'd probably recommend this. As it is, I find it dull compared to other puzzle options.

It's a fun and casual number puzzle game. Worth the price. It's kinda like a match 3+ where you group numbers in different chains, like consecutive(12345), all the same(55555), odds(135), evens(246), and more that I haven't found yet. I reconmend it to anyone looking for a casual puzzle game.

I really, really want to like this game. The core puzzle gameplay is solid. The game itself, though, is riddled with small annoyances and dull spots that make with want to quit playing.

The puzzle element of the game is to select adjacent blocks such that a pattern is formed. This can be an addition or multiplication pattern or just the same number. This is a solid idea. There are also special blocks that change between turns, which help change up things. This part of the game is fun.

The way it presents the puzzle is faulty. All the number blocks look the same at a glance, without slight colorations or details besides the numbers themselves to distinguish themselves easily. This makes determining what numbers are what much more difficult to do quickly. I think it would have been better if the numbers themselves were dice dots instead, since the game is about pattern finding.

When you select blocks for your pattern, it doesn't show the path, which makes back-tracking harder to do.

Additionally, there are ice blocks and fire blocks that have an effect after a certain number of turns but no indication how close it is to that turn. The only way to know is to memorize which is annoying when blocks move naturally and impossible after doing the scramble action.

The sound effect that plays when you make a successful pattern sounds terribly out of tune and is not pleasant to listen too. This is a problem because you are going to make a lot of patterns one after the other, and at times in quick succession which will cause the sound effect to overlap producing a worse sound. The sound doesn't have weight to it either. Other games have block that crash or pop or something else that feels satisfying.

There are three modes: classic, endless, and puzzle. Classic is timed rounds that use preselected numbers on blocks and types of blocks. This is quite solid. Only frustration is reading every number quickly (as said above), which becomes a chokepoint when racing the clock. Endless mode is the same mechanics slowing being rolled out, but there is no way to actually lose except for your own boredom. Puzzle mode would be enjoyable if you could skip ahead to the more difficult puzzles. (Personally) I found the first puzzles trivial and tedious to do.

Overall, I wish the development of this game was higher quality. If you can overlook the faults, try it. Otherwise, avoid being annoyed by this game.

Personal rating: 6/10

PROS:
+ nice gameplay
+ relaxing
+ lots of levels

CONS:
- there is nothing outstanding/memorable about this game
- can get boring after a longer while of playing
- many similar flash games exist for free

Comment:
I will say it straight away, I paid 1.49€ for this game (-50% coupon) and as that I do recommend it as an nteresting way to kill time. The full price is too much however because although the game is nice there are some things that need adjusting and/or adding. There are ton of flash games out there with a similar theme, for free.

This is a simple game resembling the old school Tetris with a few twists,,,,but it is good for working the mental cogs. The hypnotic music in the background with sound effects brings to mind Vegas slot machines, which combine to keep you playing.

Numba is a puzzle game where you drag your mouse across the board to form chains of numbers. The game gets VERY boring after a few minutes though, and there really isn't much to do even if some other elements are introduced gradually. The game lacks content and substance. The graphics are uite bad too, and there aren't many settings at all.

Numba Deluxe is a casual puzzle game in which you highlight groups of number by type (eg. 1 1 1 1), order (1 2 3 4), addition (1 3 5 7) or multiplication (1 2 4 8), causing them to disappear and numbers from above to fall. There are three modes: Classic, Timeless, and Puzzle. I bought this for the puzzle mode, in which I've spent about 95% of my playing time, so that's what I'm reviewing.

This is very much a game of what you see is what you get: watch the video on the store page and you'll know whether this is your type of game or not. That might be kind of lazy of me to say in a review, but it's true ;) Visuals are clean but unspectacular, music is cheery but non-descript--there are no bells and whistles here. The same background is used throughout all the menus/games, the same sound effect is used every.single.time. you clear blocks (and you will hear it a LOT).

That said, is the gameplay itself solid? I would say so. The puzzles, in which you must clear all the blocks from the level, are generally on the easy side so far (I'm at level 60-something out of 84, in about 1.5 hours), but once in a while there's some curveballs thrown your way via different block types to keep it varied. (eg. a fire block needs to fall on an ice block to melt it).

However, so far it's a good thing that levels are easy, because the puzzles appear sequentially, and there's no way to skip to a different puzzle without solving the one you're on. The scoring system seems rather pointless as well, as every time you restart the game you begin at 0, and there's no score recorded for individual puzzles, so the highscore table is really just a matter of how long you played rather than how well/fast you solved the puzzles (there's also no timer, btw).

On a technical note, there are no resolution options.

I realize I'm sounding rather negative, but that's only because I'm mentioning things that are small annoyances. The positives are all in the video: it's a simple, straightforward game that can be easily picked up and sometimes makes you put on your thinking cap. I have no regrets about my $3.

Numba deluxe is an exciting and challenging logic game. Just create some Numba-Chains to gain more points. There are 3 different types of gamemodes:
1. Classic
2. Timeless
3. Puzzle

Some levels are pretty challenging, but you can relax during playing this game.
It's not really expensive.. 3€ are worth for this good game. Especially when you can get a coupon when you craft a badge!
Then it's really worth it. I just have to recommend this game.. There are alot of logic games.. But this one is one of the best.

This is a nice little puzzle game. Simple in concept it makes you addicted. I liked the "Puzzle" mode most. Graphics are fine and music is mild. Quite a great game for killing some time in office.

Format is a cliché, awful sounds repeating over and over again... Basically the Candy Crush for Steam. I got it for free but I would not spend a single penny on it.

2/10

This gamne gets a BIG YES from me. I just like match three and puzzle games and this one, playing with numbers, is just what the doctor orderd. So if you're looking for something different, you should try Numba Delux. Well worth the money for this one.
