Simple math game. I made it for myself more than I made it for anyone else.

I can't properly rate the game as I find myself unable to play it.... I'm erring on the low side of a 'neutral' 2.5.

Playing of Firefox on a PC I can't find the 'how to play' section at all. It just immediately opens with 144CDF and the colour boxes. I figured how to change the numbers, and switch the 1, 10, 100 part but, as I said, I can't find any instructions that you've implied are there and would be super handy.

(I can't find the issue brought up in the comments yet, but I might be missing something. Sorry, if not.)

Sorry you can't access the How to Play section of the game. I use Firefox too, but I get to see the menu before being plunged into the game.

If you want to learn how to convert base 10 into hex, try Googling it. You should be able to play the game then.

I really enjoyed this fun little game, it finally gave me an entertaining verification for me learning hex.

Kwing responds:

Thanks, glad you liked it!

please explain this math formula to the poor math illiterate player.

Kwing responds:

It's explained in the How to Play section. This is basically a simple game of converting base 16 into base 10. Letters A-F represent numbers 10-15, and the first number of each pair of digits represents its own number times 16, whereas in normal base 10 it would represent itself times 10.

It's basically a different way of saying twenty six is twenty plus six.


Kwing responds:

Read the instructions...?

it's a nice tool for if you want to work with hexadecimals and you want to practice, and perhaps a nice game for math geeks (like myself), though it gets boring quite fast, and it's not really a game for the average gamer (even people who love puzzle games), also a bit low graphics,

since you made this mainly for yourself I won't be too hard on you, but you need to remember that this website is for sharing flash submissions etc. not making them online for yourself, therefore, together with all factors stated above, I think 3 stars id a fair rating

Kwing responds:

Mhm, I get that it turns boring fast. That's why I made it so short. If I had really wanted to be a jackass I would have made some crazy ass campaign or something. Although I think I'll play this game every so often, I don't think anyone would want to play it for more than a couple minutes at a time.
