Challenge Your Brain with Sequences

Good old fashioned math, how many times have we doubted your innate ability to drive us completely insane? How many times have we wished that we followed art instead of engineering? The sole thought of math being useful in real life has been a puzzling idea since elementary school. Well, I personally love math, but most students utter complaints like the ones I just mentioned more often than not. There are many ways to change opinions on different subjects. For instance, if you have a trouble eater who hates veggies, there are various ways to make veggies more appealing. Same goes for math. And what better way to learn to love what you hate than by making it fun? If you haven’t already had your evening coffee, it may be time to hit up the old grinder before getting hooked on this.

XDA Fourm Member Christoph Mayr brings us a game that he called Sequences. Much as with school homework, the game’s objective is to complete number sequences with missing digits. Logic and some basic understanding of math are absolute requirements to play, but knowing these concepts is only half the battle. You need to understand them well, due to increasing levels of difficulty. If completing all 100 levels of the game is not your cup of tea, you could always try Time mode, which will give you a set amount of time to solve as many sequences as you can.

The dev is looking for feedback, bug reports, and ideas to implement in this brain-twisting game. So, if you decide to take it for a spin, please do not forget to swing by the the thread and leave a comment or two. The dev is actually quite actively squashing bugs as the releases are coming out almost daily. So, please have a go and spread the joy of math.

You can find more information in the original thread.

Brand Loyalty: OEMs Giveth and Then Taketh Away

The majority of users here at XDA will feel fierce brand loyalty for a company, whether it is Android itself, their phone’s OEM or something else entirely.
