Multiples Crush is a brand-new game by Intelligent Apps, LLC that tests your reflexes, thinking skills, and number knowledge. Though it’s similar to other matchmaking games, this is a puzzler that requires you to focus on more than just colors and shapes.
The goal of Multiples Crush is to match numbers on the board in order to destroy them. You must match numbers that are multiples of each other or numbers of the same value. This might sound easy, but it gets much more challenging as you progress to higher levels and additional numbers are added to the board.
When it comes to beginner players and learning how to play the game, Multiples Crush is very new player friendly and isn’t hard to understand. Even if you’re not number savvy, this game is fun to play because it really forces you to focus on what’s on the board instead of quickly glancing at shapes and colors like other matchmaking games.
In terms of numbers, Multiples Crush offers 200 levels to play through. In order to progress to the next level, you must achieve at least 99 points on the current level. Points are earned by making matches and players lose points for each tap that doesn’t result in a match. This prevents players from mindlessly tapping the board for points.
It’s also worth mentioning that each level has a time limit of one minute to earn the highest score possible. Multiples Crush features Game Center integration with a high score leaderboard, as well as a leaderboard for highest level reached.
One thing I do like about Multiples Crush is that you can freely go back and play any level you wish (up to the highest level you’ve unlocked) by entering the level number on the main screen. This is great for going back and playing previous levels if you find you’ve reached a difficult level that you can’t pass.
While Multiples Crush lacks fancy things like boosts and power ups, I think the simplicity of the game is a huge strength. Players must rely on raw skill instead of luck in order to complete levels, which is how a puzzle game should be.
Multiples Crush is free to download from the App Store and is supported with ads. You can optionally disable ads for $1.99 and you can unlock all levels for $3.99. Personally I didn’t find the ads to be too intrusive, so users aren’t forced to disable them for a better playing experience.
Overall, Multiples Crush is a great game to play if you’re a fan of matchmaking puzzle games that are challenging. It’s also a great educational game that can help kids and adults with math practice, so I definitely recommend checking it out!
