Five-0 Deluxe app review: it's all about the numbers

Reviews

Introduction

We've got a puzzle for you that is all about the numbers and is sure to leave you utterly stumped as you try your best to work your way through the levels. The Five-O Deluxe app can be played on your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone and is described as a "competitive number-puzzling" game. The rules are very simple and clear so you'll have no problem understanding the game it's mastering the game that is the challenge. You've got a couple of game modes to choose from, which helps to keep it fresh and exciting.

Prepare to Be Challenged

This app doesn’t back down when it comes to offering a challenge. You've got a couple of different game modes to choose from as you can take part in pass and play mode with up to four people, online multi-player mode, or single-player mode against the computer. What’s great is that each of these modes are great in their own way as some feature quick gameplay such as the single player mode, and in pass and play mode you’ll be able to enjoy a much longer game. The controls are extremely smooth and simple to use, which is a must in any successful game.

In the Five-0 Deluxe's most recent update there were a number of changes including the ability to now be awarded a win in a game if your opponent forfeits (in online mode), there is now a time limit of two weeks if you are in an online game where you need to take turns, and there were some bug fixes made. The app has a very impressive 4.5 out of five stars from players who clearly love what this one has to offer.

The Gameplay Experience

When it comes to the gameplay, again, the rules are very simple to understand. This is a numbers games app and you need to make sequences of numbers that add up to a multiple of five. I have to say that math is not my strong suit so for me this game seemed extra challenging. The way it works is that you place your tiles in a straight line either vertically or horizontally as you try to make your multiple of five. Some of the squares on the board are a different color and this is because they are either a score multiplier or offer extra points, similar to a Scrabble game board in that sense. Once all the tiles have been played the game is over.
