Juggle gears to get as many points as possible!

IMPORTANT: The difficulty increases every 5 levels. Levels 1-5 are a bit boring and are meant for people to get used to the controls. It gets interesting from level 6 and challenging from level 11.

How to play:
Bounce the gears with the help of the paddle. The paddle has 4 numbers on it, while the falling gears have numbers composed out of the ones on the paddle. If the number on the paddle divides the one on the gear, the gear gets smaller and you earn points; if the gear falls, you lose energy. Once the energy reaches 0, it's Game Over. When a gear reaches 1, and cannot longer be divided, you can safely let it go.

The paddle is controlled by the mouse, while the numbers on it can be rotated by clicking on the mouse, using the 'left' and 'right' keys, or selected directly by pressing the numbers '1' through '4'.
Keys 'P' and 'Esc' can be used to pause the game, 'Q' to change the quality and 'M' to mute the sounds.


Thanks for the daily 2nd and frontpage! Also, thanks a lot for the reviews!

Woah! But hard. Black gears can be really annoying!

very awesome game...

The controls are great. physics work fantastically, my only complaint is that after you factor a gear all the way to zero, you still have to fumble around with it... the empty gears were the main reason I died... isn't it enough of a challenge to have to think fast mathematically, while switching through the numbers, and juggling the gears while they continuously fall...? I feel like the empty gears should just fall to the background or something without interfering with the paddle, or gears with numbers still on them.

Good, but I won't play again.

I got tired of playing after a while. There's not a whole lot more to it than adding numbers together. It's interesting and creative, but it needs some more umph.

Ohlawd that got difficult.

It started pretty easy (and kinda boring), and just as I was about to quit, it suddenyl got pretty difficult and much more fun.
7th daily score on my first attempt 8D
Not too shabby!

I'll probably play it again sometime and try to improve my score, but I'm fine as I am at the moment XD

nice game

it's a nice little game, but what gets very confusing is seeing (2, 3, 5, 7) and using the keys (1,2,3,4) . nice concept though.
