AWEsum!™ is an award-winning, fast-paced, action-packed puzzle game designed for casual game lovers of all ages. The object of the game is to guide and place a pair of falling number cubes onto other cubes below so that the single digits assigned to each cube, when added together, equal the game's predetermined "AWEsum".
Correctly paired cubes result in their disappearance, preventing the "cube wall" from reaching the top of the board and ending the game. Receive scoring bonuses by power-dropping cubes, matching cube colors, or making multiple AWEsum pairs at once.
The AWEsum changes periodically throughout the game - keeping you on your mathematical toes! Game speed progressively increases and "special" cubes with powerful cube-bursting features are introduced as periodic rewards to players who demonstrate proficiency.

Permissions??? I'll update the app and change my review when the devs can explain why they need the new permissions. Why is reading my phone state and identity necessary to gather "non-identifying information about your game experience"?
READ_PHONE_STATE is necessary to generate a unique ID for your device. This is a non-identifying ID that has nothing to do with your personal information; we simply need to distinguish your gameplay results (anonymously) from other players'.
ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE simply checks whether or not you are connected to a network.

A smarter game of Tetris Just as addicting for me as tetris. Easy to learn, provides clear instructions. Once in a while blocks don't rotate like I expect, not sure if that is a glitch or user error. Definitely worth downloading. Just need to know easy addition facts to play, but have to be able to think quickly.
Simple but fun A few more game modes could make this really intersting (e.g. add 3 blocks together, add horizontally or diagonally instead of vertically, etc.). As is its fun but simple falling blocks game involving addition.
Once I figured out the special features... I had to play it 2x before I realized I needed to pay more attention to the instructions at the beginning! Once I figured out the power of getting 5 awesums in a row, it became extremely fun and a good time waster! not to mention it's educational. :) 5 stars. Thanks Nomad.
