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!

at first I thought it was gonna be boring but when the multiplication came in I thought damn this is hard. great job. way to keep it interesting.
graphics were simple but vibrant and bold so it looked really good.
need a better choice of music though. kinda boring. a fast paced kinda industrial music would have been better.

Isn't the game supposed to make you think quickly on the fly and work things out in your head? But nothing happens even if I selected the wrong paddle number, I can just keep them bouncing all day long (which isn't hard) and slowly cycle through all the numbers, heck I even tried just spamming left click and swishing the mouse back and forth, and managed to get pretty damn far without dropping a simple gear.

Something ought to happen when you select the wrong number! Some sort of score penalty, or the gear changing size, or some other effect, go think it up! Otherwise there's just no point to the game, and as others have mentioned, the pace of the game is painfully slow.

good concept

I also found it boring till lvl 6. Then things really ramped up. I have a suggestion. Since they are gears, maybe the could mesh together and do something with their numbers occasionally

bit laggy but good nonetheless

it was a bit boring for me till i got to lvl 6, then it got more challenging.
