DigitDash: Written and Video iPhone Game Review
As someone who is definitely not a numbers person, I find math apps and games strangely pleasing to play. Not only do they test your knowledge and help to keep your brain sharp, but usually they are simple enough for younger children to enjoy.
DigitDash, developed by GMY Studio, is a math game which is truly fun to play. Even though it’s brand-new, DigitDash has already received many positive reviews on the App Store and is sure to be a hit with everyone who plays it.
Concept and Gameplay:
I’ve mentioned many times that I’m a huge fan of educational games, so it’s no surprise that I was very excited to give DigitDash a try. Great graphics, cool background music, and an easy concept make it a very quick game to learn.
There are two game modes in DigitDash: timed and turn-based. In a matching style that is somewhat similar to Bejeweled Blitz, the object of DigitDash is to add numbers on the board so they equal the goal number at the top of the screen. For example, if the goal number is 14, you can solve using a combination of numbers on the board. Depending on the game mode, however, you’ll be racing against the clock.
There are also a wide variety of boosts available for both timed games and turn-based games. These boosts range from added time to a bomb that destroys multiple rows of blocks for extra points. You need to spend coins in order to purchase boosts for each game, which is also similar to Bejeweled Blitz. Without purchasing an extra slot, you can use a maximum of three boosts for each game.
Great graphics, exciting background music and sound effects, and a wonderful game concept definitely make DigitDash a fun game to play. However, the game also has quite a few features which definitely improve it.
In yet another comparison to Bejeweled Blitz, there’s a daily spin available once every 24 hours. Here you can win varying amounts of coins, all the way up to the 1 million coin jackpot. There are also 42 different achievements you can earn while playing DigitDash, and most achievements give you a reward after you complete them.
As far as things I don’t like about DigitDash, I’m not a huge fan of the fact that it costs a gem to play a game. Even though you can purchase more heart gems using coins, this somewhat prevents you from playing the game for a long period of time. Also, I wish there were more math modes instead of just addition because it doesn’t seem very challenging after a while.
DigitDash is free to download from the App Store, but there are a ton of options to purchase coins and unlock bonuses within the app. If you’re looking for a brand-new math app which will definitely put your brain to the test, I definitely suggest taking a look at DigitDash!
DigitDash is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. Requires iOS 5.0 or later. This app is optimized for iPhone 5. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review, as well as a video production fee.
