Villains lurk in the streets of Infinity City. Our only hope is the Numbers League. Assemble a team of superheroes and use the sum of their incredible powers and ingenious devices to capture as many villains as you can.
In Numbers League, clever use of basic math skills will save the day. The more you play the sharper these skills will become until no villain is safe from your numerical onslaught.
Ages 5 and up. The Minion-level game can be mastered by a five year old, the Superhero-level game will challenge even math-savvy parents and teachers, and Custom levels allow for a learning experience anywhere in between.
Play with your family, your friends, or by yourself-- up to four players can play on a single iPad.
Also, three robots of different skill levels are ready to join in any game.
Tally-ho! Use your fingers, use your toes. Use a pencil and a piece of paper if you like. Use the hint feature to show you what’s possible and a timer if you want to make the game even more challenging.
"The Numbers League app is an incredibly fun way to practice your basic math facts. The combination of arithmetic and wacky comic book-style superheroes will draw in even the most reluctant child. My kids beg to play this game. The app is also a perfect electronic representation of the original Numbers League card game. I recommend this to anyone from age 5 to adult. Kids aren't necessary to enjoy this challenging game."

Ratings and Reviews
fun and funny
Just as good for older kids as little kids. We totally love this game.
Fun math? Who would have thought?
Fun graphics, fun music, fun rewards for catching bad guys with difficulty-tunable math makes this a fun game for me, as an adult, to wake up my math mind. I keep coming back to it, and updates keep making the capture screens fresh and amusing.
It's engaging for kids or adults. Life gives math purpose, and so does this game. The problem with teaching math is putting math in a purposeful context. Few people do math just to do it. We do it toward some other goal. So does this game. Meanwhile the exercise makes the math mind stronger.
If you have kids, get this game. If you don't, well, neither do I, and I like this game. It's at least as entertaining as games that only entertain, and the skills it exercises are actually useful when trying to center a picture on a wall (wall length minus picture length divided by two is the margin), or work with your home budget any of the other places that common math helps you solve life problems.
I'd love to see every schoolchild have this!
My 5 year old daughter *loves* this game. She's up through the second level and is starting to learn subtraction without me asking her to do anything. I skipped ahead a few levels to see myself what's happening and by the time she completes the game she'll have to know addition, subtraction, and multiplication up to 50, plus negative numbers and zero. It's pretty remarkable watching her figure out how to count in order to beat the game - somehow she uses her fingers to count numbers up to above 20, which I still can't figure out. She gets it right, though.
Anyway, kudos to the developers, this is one of the first games that has got my daughter fired up and learning math without knowing it.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
