Number Chef is a new and original math puzzle game that is set in a weird restaurant where customers order numbers instead of food (because, you know, some people don't really know what's good). However, your task is to satisfy their strange wishes by combining the numbers together and reaching their goal.
How? Well, here's where the interest peaks: drag any number over an odd number to make an addition. Drag any number over an even number to subtract. The problem is that there are many tiles and more than one objective most of the time. Planning strategically isn't always possible; if you're not careful about thinking ahead, you might end up doing something you wish you hadn't done.
The design is absolutely brilliant: graphics are excellent and usability is perfect and professional, nothing to complain about.
And don't worry about running out of challenges: you have 135 levels to get frustrated. You won't need to pay for anything: just be patient, start all over, and try again.
We believe that he game can become a bit repetitive after a few levels. That being said, Number Chef still wins us over thanks to its innovative mechanic and beautiful interface. A well-crafted game for those who love challenges that make you think.

Number Chef is a brainburner puzzle game that is based on a completely new gameplay mechanic, one that rewards skill and careful thinking.
The game might look simple: odd numbers add and even numbers subtract - drag and combine tiles together to fulfill the goals of each level… but you will very quickly figure the problem to be anything but simple.
You know how some games seem to make it sure that you cannot complete a level no matter how well you play that round? In Number Chef, each level is always solvable on the first try... If you just think hard enough!
Number Chef is also stripped free of many annoyances – it doesn’t beg for your money or tease you with mechanisms that make you wait to be able to play more.
Great for all ages - what are you waiting for?
COMPLETELY NEW AND ORIGINAL
Who says there are no new game ideas anymore?
Each of the 150 levels a carefully handcrafted and fine-tuned puzzle. Each level is solvable on the first try - most levels can be solved in multiple ways, some in a *very* creative manner.
READY FOR A CHALLENGE?
The challenge constantly builds up with new types of game pieces appearing in each episode.
There is no way to "Pay to Win" to please the chef. The game doesn’t try to prompt to buy consumable coins after every level, or frustrate you with energy bars, impossible levels, slowly recharging lives or level timers.
