Well made game! I included it in my compilation video series of all of the GBJam 5 games, if you'd like to take a look :)


I'd love to see something like this with some more complex maths but love the concept and the game!


What a great game! My youngster have had fun to play your game, Congrats for your great game!


Way to create a math game that wasn't just Number Munchers!

I feel like this could have been taken a little further thematically by having the numbers on monsters or something, but the clarity of the naked numbers is nice too, so...

I'm particularly fond of level 14, it's very elegant.


Loved it. This would have been up there with Oregon Trail back in middle school in the computer lab (I'm dating myself a little). I was impressed with how it ramped up as well. Just as I was about to think "this is too repetitive" you throw in other operators and order of operations. My only suggestion is maybe have some sort of life/health that is lost when you get it wrong. To discourage brute forcing it until you get it right. If you were to take it further it would be interesting to have an attack mechanic to pickup the numbers. Lend itself to the dungeon/castle theme. You could then expand to other subjects, like spelling. The level would have a riddle or sentence with a blank and you'd have to solve it by spelling the word out of a bunch of letters. Great job.


Great idea for an educational / puzzle game. Loved the music.

that was fun. I think its gonna be very good for kids play, because its very educational.


I'm not much of a math personn, but i had a lot of fun going through this anyway. I could easily see this concept become a hit as an app for smartphone.


Great game idea, I would love to see a version of this game with harder puzzles


I've never had so much fun mathing! Great job!


Its a simple premise, but your puzzles are really excellently designed. The introduction of new mechanics and the ways they are combined is really professional. Great job!

Liked it a lot!! Looks easy but then it shows itself somewhat tricky!
