Math Puzzle Challenge is a free set of cross-figure logic puzzles (the numerical version of a crossword). Clues are given to each puzzle and the player fills in blank spaces with numbers making sure they meet the criteria of the clues. There are 7 different sets of puzzles with 5 different levels of difficulty ranging from Beginner puzzles designed to help ease players into the process of completing the math puzzles and finishing with Grandmaster puzzles which are insanely difficult. The player has to achieve a certain number of puzzles before they can unlock later sets of puzzles.
Each puzzle has clues, calculator, list of square numbers, list of cubed numbers and a list of prime numbers to assist the player in completion of the puzzles. The player also starts with a few hints and receives extra ones daily to help them on puzzles they are finding more challenging.
In total there are 86 math puzzles averaging about 200 hours game play. The earlier puzzles take on average around 10-15 minutes each with the last couple difficulties of puzzles taking hours or even days for some players.
