Numberzilla is a numbers matching game. The player has a grid of numbers and must connect matching pairs or pairs that add up to ten. If they make a match, the tiles disappear from the board. When an entire row is empty, the row disappears. If the player gets stuck, they choose to add another row. The goal is to completely clear the board. There are two different modes and a variety of achievements.
Numberzilla has ads and in-game purchases available. The ESRB rated it E for Everyone and LW4K stands by this rating.
Numberzilla helps kids practice and improve the following skills:
Getting started and then maintaining attention and effort to tasks.
Focus is important in this game. The player must be able to ignore internal and external distractions to make sure that they don’t miss any matches or mess up their plan. They also have to be able to split their attention between looking for matching pairs and looking for pairs that add up to ten. If they don’t do a good job of maintaining focus, they will not be able to clear the board or earn achievements.
Developing a systematic approach for setting and achieving goals.
Planning is also very important. Since the player can choose to match pairs vertically or horizontally (and do the same with sets of ten), there are often multiple choices for moves. The player has to evaluate them and be able to plan out which choice is best. If they don’t take the time to plan out which move to take first, the player will be missing moves that they could otherwise have taken.
