This is a one-player number line puzzle game with elements of Frogger, Logical Journey of the Zoombinis, and an Angry Birds leveling system.

Your job is to save Snortles -- little creatures -- by making a path for them through a maze of numbered number bubbles. At times you can make new numbers by dragging two bubbles together. The game starts with counting by 1s and 2s and gets harder (by 7s, 8s and 9s). A timed element is introduced with fuses and stompers who take away points and send the Snortles back to the start. These timed features can be turned off in the parent's menu. There are some repetitive "snort" sounds that can get annoying (they're not bad, but a bit too frequent). This is a matter of taste.

Progress for one player is saved automatically.

The more Snortles you save, and the more math you do, the more challenging the game will become.

From the developer: * Updated on 8/24* The latest version of Jump Numbers (1.2) adds options to customize skills practice. Now you can designate the numbers you count by, or choose random starting numbers for a brain-busting math challenge that goes way beyond traditional skip counting. The update is a direct response to user feedback - people love the adaptive engine, but some teachers really want more fine-grained control.
