Math puzzlers: either you love them, or you hate them. They're almost always one of two types of games -- either they're like 2048, which is less math and more muscle memory, or more like taking math tests for fun. Today, we've found a game that breaks the mold a bit; a simple math puzzler called Legendary.
If you would have asked us 10 years ago if we would have been playing math-based puzzle games for fun, we probably would have told you that you were insane; but here we are, with an iPad full of math puzzles we can't seem to put down, no matter how hard we try. We recently tried out another game that we quickly became obsessed with, a minimalist math puzzle game called 10.

So how do you get your kids to brush up on their math skills? We suggest Numbees and the World of Math, a well-rounded, fun app for helping improve your child's math skills.
