Seeing the 1-minute timer counting down during games in Challenge Mode can make some people distracted or tense - which is the last thing we want children to feel when they’re playing NumBots!
How to hide the timer:
During a Challenge game, players can easily hide the timer by simply tapping on it. (Clicking again in the empty spot will then reveal the timer.)
Alternatively, children can go to Settings (by clicking on the small circular orange cog button) to set whether they prefer the timer to be hidden or not.
