Guide a ball of light around obstacles, journey through a two dimensional world, and slice numbers down to their prime factors with today’s collection of apps and games.

Factor Samurai – Multiply and Divide your way to Times Tables Mastery ($2.99 → Free, 116.5 MB): Cut numbers down to their prime factors in Factor Samurai. Factor Samurai provides a fun way to practice times tables.

You get to play as a sword-wielding samurai, and your job is to cut all of the numbers down to their prime factors. As the numbers are thrown at you, you must first decide if they can be factored into smaller values. If not, just let them be. Some numbers will need to be broken down multiple times, so be ready for some intense slashing action. The game includes three difficulty settings, and leaderboards via Game Center.

Factor Samurai – Multiply and Divide your way to Times Tables Mastery is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4-star rating with a total of 287 ratings.

The Lost Ship ($0.99 → Free, 55.4 MB): Embark on your very own treasure hunt in The Lost Ship. It’s for fans of classic point and click adventure games.

Uncle Henry has always enjoyed the thrill of treasure hunting, and that excitement was instilled in you at an early age. Race against time to help Uncle Henry discover a long lost pirate ship that was allegedly blown on to an island shore in the Caribbean waters. To do so you must pick the correct paths, solve puzzles, and search through old structures with just a tap. A built-in hint system will assist you when you’re stuck, and a dynamic map will ensure you won’t simply go running around in circles.

The Lost Ship is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 182 ratings.

Almost Impossible! ($1.99 → Free, 20.6 MB): Guide a small ball of light on a dangerous journey in Almost Impossible. Fans of side-scrolling platformers will love this one.

Almost Impossible’s retro future graphics will draw you in, and the gameplay will keep you coming back for more. Tap on the sides of the screen to push the bouncing ball of light forward and backward, and avoid everything that isn’t a platform. It sounds easy, but it’s almost impossible to complete the 50 levels.

Almost Impossible! is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 60 ratings.

A Noble Circle ($0.99 → Free, 43.5 MB): Guide a noble circle through a two dimensional world in A Noble Circle. It’s one of those games that just has to be experienced.

A Noble Circle is from the creator of A Dark Room and The Ensign. If you’ve played those games, you’ll have a better idea of what to expect from A Noble Circle. If not, you have to try it anyway. On the surface it’s a high score game that has you moving a circle higher and higher with taps. But as you progress, a rather unique story will unfold right before your eyes.

A Noble Circle is available for free for a limited time. It has a 5-star rating with a total of 1284 ratings.
