Artful Balancer & Artful B Deluxe 1.2 are here!

The latest version of Artful Balancer and pretentious sibling Artful B Deluxe are here. This is a significant update, the highlights are as follows:

  • New ‘random’ mode – get a shot at higher level and if you’re successful you can keep going. Its the equivalent of the chef’s tasting menu if you like.
  • New ball designs – the flower collection.
  • Additional tuning to give precisely the same experience on all devices.

Thats all folks, we hope you enjoy them.


Matchy Matics 2 – Making Maths Interesting!

Matchy Matics 2 The definitive version, the one about making maths interesting! MM 2 brings a symbolic element to the game, adding an extra visual element that we think makes it all a bit more interesting.

  • Mystery / Flip tile help glyphs.
  • Tile number symbols (1-5).
  •  Finger counters with symbols.
  •  Level difficulty tuning, easier to handle, emphasis on multiplication.
  •  Game Center, cryptic achievements.


Are you the one? Is there only one?

Welcome to the world of the Artful Balancer! A game of skill, fast reactions and precision – become the ‘Artful Balancer’.

It may seem easy at first, but there are strategies to develop, you’ll need them later.

Artful Balancer and (slightly pretentious) sibling Artful B Deluxe are now available in the iTunes App Store. We hope you enjoy the game – and of course its a little more than just a game!

The review was performed by a practicing teacher and the process has been quite enlightening. MM was designed as a puzzle game with an educational aspect, it has been great to see the educational aspect realised.
