The Grid

The majority of the display is populated by the number sequence grid, which comprises eleven tiles horizontally by six tiles vertically.

The display also contains two buttons, Numbers and Finish along the bottom, and the time taken and number sequences still be to found across the top.

 

Number Sequences

Once you locate a number sequence in the grid it can be selected by simply dragging your finger across the number tiles. Selected tiles can be easily identified as they will "wobble".

 

 

Complete the selection by finishing the drag. If you have successfully found a number sequence with the selected tiles then the number sequence will be highlighted, and the remaining number sequences left to find will be reduced by one.

 

 

Number sequences can read from left or right, right to left, top to bottom or bottom to top.

 

The Numbers List

Pressing the Numbers button will display the list of number sequences present on the grid. Initially the number sequences will be hidden (only shown once they have been found). If you wish to see the number sequences earlier then you have several options:

 

Clue

The Clue button can be pressed to randomly reveal one number or a full sequence from those number sequences not yet found (see Settings). This button can be repeatedly pressed to reveal additional numbers.

 

 

Show All

Alternatively pressing the Show All button will display all the number sequences in the grid (they can be hidden again by pressing the Hide All button).

As number sequences are found they will be displayed in the word list in purple.

Pressing Back will return you to the grid.

 

Finish

Pressing Finish whilst there are undiscovered number sequences in the grid will display the Not Completed dialog, and you will be prompted to confirm that you wish to finish by pressing the Yes button. Pressing the No button will return you to the game.

 
 

When all the number sequences have been discovered the completed grid is shown and you are prompted to press the Finish button which will display the Completed dialog.

 
Pressing OK will return you to the main menu.  

Settings

Press the Settings button to display the application settings.

The settings display can be scrolled by swiping the screen from bottom to top.

The size of the grid can be set, although only the classic eleven tiles horizontally by six tiles vertically is available on the iPhone and iPod touch.

 
How many numbers to be revealed each time the Clue button is pressed can be set, to randomly pick either one number within a sequence or an entire sequence.  
Number Maestro also supports Apple's Game Center. If it is enabled in the settings, and a wireless connection is present then your fastest time will be recorded allowing you o compare your times against other players.
