  • Summary: (Also known as "Challenge Me: Math Workout") Challenge Me: Maths Workout! Challenge Me: Maths Workout is the second game to be released in the Challenge Me series after Challenge Me: Brain Puzzles. Incorporating two number puzzle games, Challenge Me: Maths Workout will not only bring you hours of fun and relaxation, it may also improve your Maths skills. Hidden Logic! In hidden logic you must guess the value of your opponent’s cards whilst stopping them from guessing yours. Initially the cards are facedown on the Nintendo DS screen - a correct guess (from 1-11) will reveal the card. Play to reveal all of your opponents cards before they reveal yours! Formulate! Formulate! is a numbers game that uses equations and cards to formulate answers. Each card, numbered 1-9 is also associated with a mathematical symbol such as +, - , x or ÷. You must move the cards around the screen to create a correct formula. Formulate! is a great way to sharpen up your arithmetic skills while relaxing at home or battling the hordes on the tube or bus.

    On one hand it does exactly what it set out to do: deliver a solid brain-teaser game focused on math problems and logic. On the other hand it fails at several game design choices such as frustrating AI and poor presentation.
  2. The gameplay is really simple; it just consists of selecting cards and shifting the order of cards using the stylus. The game is more about logical and mathematical thinking than true gameplay.
  3. At the end of the day Challenge Me: Math Workout does what it is supposed to do, it tests your cranial skills using a form of mathematics. It just isn’t that exciting.
  4. 40
    Consisting only of two incredibly limited modes, neither of which particularly suited to any age group, and featuring little else, Maths Workout is a hard sell to recommend over that of other notable number-featuring brain ticklers like Brain Training or Professor Layton.
  5. It's certainly a disappointing experience all around, and I can't see any reason to buy it.
  6. No one is going to cough up cash for two games that, to be honest, can be played with bits of paper if you have the time and inclination to make them.
