Back before computers were a regular thing, there was a game that taught players how to improve their math skills whilst providing a fun passtime. Strangely enough, it wasn't anything particularly technical. It was the noble and age-old game of darts! Players would have to count down from 301 or 501 after throwing and counting their darts score and you'd be surprised how quickly they could work out in their head just how many there were left to score and win the game. Consequently, i'm pretty convinced that the maths skills of many back then were much better than they are now.

These days there is a plethora of online numbers games that provide plenty of entertainment while they sharpen up the mind with Sudoku and Kakuro being the obvious ones that come to mind - and we all know just how popular those two have become. Now there is another game on the market that will force players to test their logic and reaction times. Level 19 is a new game for iOS that will challenge your brain power and reaction abilities like few others can.

To be successful at this simple game you will have to get rid of all the blue numbers on your screen by adding, dividing or multiplying the other numbers on the grid. Doesn't really sound too taxing when I put it like that, does it? The only trouble is, you only have a certain amount of time to complete each level of your task. The aim is to get through all the levels until you get to the fabled Level 19.

Thankfully, the game starts out easy enough and, as long as you have a modicum of intelligence, you shouldn't have too many difficulties getting though the early levels. This is a good thing because it will prepare you for what is to come. By the time you get to the higher levels, things start to get a little frantic and your logic powers and hand-eye reaction time will be tested to the limit.

Level 19 is a great little arcade strategy game for iPhone and iPad that will not only improve your math skills but also sharpen up with your brain and allow you to make quick decisions in a fraction of a second. While there are 19 levels of play to enjoy, only the very best of you will be able to make it all the way to the top. The interface is pretty easy to come to grips with and looks neat and sharp on the screen, leaving you to deal with the numbers and the calculations needed to succeed. Now you won't have to head to the bar and the dartboard - as tempting as that is - to improve your maths skills because Level 19 is available now for free on the App Store.
