It’s your job to swipe across the numbered tiles in order to get them to subtract down to zero. Select two matching tiles to earn a zero tile, which can basically be used as a wild card to string together huge combos. Including five or more tiles in a swipe will allow you to clear large swaths of tiles at once. Special tiles will also appear, allowing you to remove entire rows all at once or delay the dropping of new tiles. The game includes two modes, each with an extreme version to really put your math skills to the test. It also includes leaderboards via Game Center.

If you like what you see, tap the favorite button to save the filter for later use. There’s no limit on the number of filters or the looks you can create.
