ADDLED is a new and unique puzzle game for Android.

ADDLED game grid

The object of ADDLED is to select multiple numbers from a grid so that they total a specific value.

The initial levels are simple to give you some confidence, but they will soon become much harder and more of a challenge to solve.

ADDLED is rated "safe for everyone" in all possible IARC regions.

No Nonsense Privacy Policy
ADDLED does not collect and/or share any personal information. No information is collected while you are playing. No information is shared with third parties.

The required permissions when installing are only used for the Share button. When sharing, the current screen is saved to an image under a newly created ADDLED gallery folder and then that image can be shared via your device's share mediums (email, social media, etc).




Scoring Explained
You start with 100 points at the beginning of each level.

Every time you unselect a selected square you lose 1 point. If you unselect a group of selected squares then you lose 1 point for each square in the group.

If you do not change any selected squares during a level you will get a perfect score of 100.

You can always retry a level where you did not get a perfect score of 100. To retry a level, touch the level you want to retry on the score card.

A quick mention of BODMAS
Operator precedence means that multiplication and division happens before addition and subtraction.

This means that 1+2x3 equals 7 and not 9. You must do the multiplication first and then the addition.

ADDLED uses the correct operator precedence when calculating answers. So if you touch 2 followed by 5 followed by x3 the answer will be calculated and displayed as 17.

Hints and Coins
ADDLED hint icon
If you are finding a level difficult to solve you can use hints to help you. Touch the light bulb icon on the upper left of the screen to bring up the hint dialog.

You pay for hints using virtual coins. Coins are earned while playing the game. A perfect level earns you 2 coins, otherwise you earn 1 coin per level.
