Math Challenge 2

Share Collapse

Author Comments

Train your brain with some math every day.
You can compete against friends to see who is fastest at math.
Use your keyboard to enter the result to 30 challenges.
I have weighted the randomness to that the difficulty should be fairly equal every time you play.

Addicting to beat the high score

BTW, I'm Ky, and I am 3rd overall, 1st weekly AND monthly......

Did it in about 10 tries :)

Thanks for the review.
That was very fast!

Not fun

I don't understand why anyone would ever want to do simple addition and multiplication in his or her spare time. But it looks nice, so kudos on that.

It has potential but...

I got sick of it after the first playthrough. Like others, I would rather have the challenge actually be math instead of being able to type/think fast, although that'd be nice to have as a seperate Timed mode. Some other things that keep the game from keeping me entertained are issues like not being able to correct your answer. You don't usually make typos on paper, but on the computer it's inevitable. Have the player be able to confirm their answer with the enter key (and make as many corrections as they want before that) or they can get aggravated VERY quickly when their typos result in multiple wrong answers. Another issue (as has been mentioned) is the fact the problems don't get any harder (and their difficulty/appearance seems to be totally random), which is annoying and kills replay value except for typing speed, which would make this a Typing Speed Challenge game.

...furthermore this isn't really a game so much as an educational exercise, and it fails at both. It either needs more fun elements or better challenge elements. Don't give up though, it has a lot of potential! I'll give it a 3/5 since it's at least entertaining the first time and well polished.

johanberg responds:

Thanks for the extensive feedback. Right now I am working on a different game but if I do get arround to putting out a "Pro" version I will definitly concidder your input. Very valubal.

FAIL!

i agree with what cartoon-electra. tottaly needs to be more about the math rather than speedily typing. work on it!

johanberg responds:

Thanks for the review.

nice simple game

just got the top score!..would rather questions be slightly more difficult so it was less about typing speed though.

perhaps bring out a 2nd version called Pro or something.

johanberg responds:

Thanks for the great score. I will definitly put out a pro version if the game gets popular enough.
