"We wanted to create an app that was fun and at the same time would challenge users to combine different skill sets," - D. Stone
(PRWEB) June 3, 2010
Von Nostrum Games today announced the release of their newest in a series of planned Apple Apps, Conundrum. Designed to challenge even the strongest puzzle solvers, Conundrum combines mathematical and alphabet puzzles in a nine stage game.
Combining games reminiscent of long time favorites like Scrabble™ and Sudoku™, the objective of the game is to obtain the highest possible score in each of the nine levels in the given time period. Each game is comprised of alphabet and numeric rounds, ending with the final conundrum level. In the alphabet stage, the longest word possible should be created from nine letters chosen by the user. In the numeric stage, players must successfully calculate the correct target answer (provided by the game) using numbers selected by the user for that round with the four basic mathematical functions. The final stage is the conundrum round, where users must tap into their inner dictionary to unscramble a nine letter anagram to form the correct word.
While this game is certainly fraught with challenges, it is by no means a game only for experts. Testing your vocabulary and math skills in a way that will see you improve your mental agility the more you play - it is a game that appeals to both young (in order to help them develop their problem solving skills) and old, (so that they may keep those self same skills sharp). However, be warned, and hold your nerve against the ticking timer as each round is given a set time limit.
“We wanted to create an app that was fun and at the same time would challenge users to combine different skill sets,” said Danny Stone, co-owner of Von Nostrum Games. “We did not find a game that contained all these elements, and that had limitless possibilities available, so we created Conundrum”, continued Stone.
Created by avid gaming brothers Danny and Roni Stone, co-owners of Von Nostrum Games, Conundrum is the fifth app and fourth game in the series of Von Nostrum Games, and follows the success of other games such as Aefo Alfie, Chopstix and Chokoblok. With an increasingly strong reputation for putting out fun and challenging games that also help sharpen and develop critical skills, Von Nostrum Games is one of the top Apple App games developers.
Available just in time for the lazy days of summer, when everything slows down and our brains become accustomed to the slower pace of things, this app will keep you sharp and focused and ready to hit the ground running after a long vacation. The app is available in the Apple Apps store. For further information on Conundrum, please visit the Von Nostrum website Conundrum page.
