In this game you gradually make your way up to all levels.
Your calculation speed will increase, and you are going to
be able to solve mathproblems much faster than you used to.
Try to get all achievements and declare yourself a true
math genius!

Update: I realised there was a security issue when saving the game. So I fixed that and now everyone can save their game properly.

Update: Thanks to my little brother a huge bug was discovered. Apparently the level select system which shows locked levels didn't get the right data for unlocking the levels. This is fixed now and I apologise for this mistake. Also when you gain five stars (50 sums correctly answered) the fifth star wasn't shown in the feedback page. This is also fixed now.

I have sooooo mouch problem with math and this really helps me.
Thanks mate :D

Hey Cherio11.

That is actually the main purpose of this game!
I found that a lot of people are really bad at math.
And most of the time it's because they find it boring.
So with this game I hope to make math at least a little more fun.

Good luck with getting all the achievements!

It's a good game, but, there are some problems.

1) There are some problems like 6-8 or 5-9 which I find to be an atrocious error.

2) Once I did 9+8 i put in 17 but it went red. Which means I'm incorrect.

I also think that you should give people without a numeric keyboard a chance to play to. Like an option where you could use your mouse to write the numbers. Put a box where the player should write the answer.

MattiGroot responds:

Thanks for your review! And I will answer your questions:

1) I don't quite understand, forgive me but aren't those answers simply -2 and -4?
Substraction is also part of the first levels.
2) I will recheck the source code, are you sure you didn't press the spacebar for example?
I don't mean to question your ability as an observer, but since I playtested a lot and never
found a single mathematical error I wonder if the error didn't come from wrong input.
The answer is calculated based on exactly what the sum says.

I actually thought about that in the early process of developing the game.
Especially if I wanted it to port easily to a mobile phone.
But as far as I know, Flash is not supported on a mobile phone.
And it never crossed my mind that there are platforms which can play
it (maybe Smart TV's, Xbox and Playstation? I dont know :/ ).
So my apologies for not implementing this feature (maybe something the user can toggle?).

I will look into it. Thank you very much for taking your time to review my game.

Okay, i'm torn voting on this game.
It seems rather well programmed, and a good premise, if potentially a little dull. However my main problem is this:
You have completely neglected to take into account those of us who are trying to play this game on a laptop. I myself am one of these people, and i'm sure a fair number of other users on this site are the same. On this note, a great number of laptops lack a numeric keypad. While I am aware some laptops do offer a numeric keypad of sorts, as the secondary function of a segment of the keyboard, these are often oddly laid out and extremely awkward to use, particularly if they are not commonly used by the laptop's user.
Unfortunately, this game only accepts numeric keypad input, rather than input from both the numeric keypad and the numbers that run along the top of the standard keyboard, which greatly limits the accessibility of this game, and unfortunately greatly detracted from the interesting premise, quick, smooth gameplay, and stellar programming that you have put into this game.

Thanks for your great review!
I immediately added the other numeric keys.
Really appreciate it!

MattiGroot responds:

Could you explain what precisely doesn't work? Maybe I can fix it.
