It's Back To School Month here on Pocket Gamer. What does that mean? Well, that it's the month in which all the kiddy-winkles go back to school. Obviously.
We thought we'd mark the occasion with a bunch of features.
Whether you're a school returner looking to distract yourself from the misery of returning, or a parent celebrating the return of your free time, you'll be wanting a mobile game or three to help pass the time.
In this particular mini-series, we're looking at the games that might help out students of county stuff. Or, to give the subject it's official title, mathematics.
Just the name of this game screams 'maths nerd!' at you. Calculords follows through on that promise in glorious style, with a combination of turn-based strategy, deck-building, and mathematical puzzler.
The twist here is that, rather than using energy or resources to deploy your troops, you have to use equations. And it's up to you to do the hard sums.
This is a uniquely stylish puzzler from the team that brought you the original endless runner, Canabalt. There's a similar neon palette to Hundreds, but the gameplay is something else entirely.
Hundreds is all about basic sums and cryptic cyphers, which sounds like the perfect game for a maths student to us. Touch the moving circles to make them add up to 100 - but don't let them touch each other while you're touching them.
