Beginner Equation Creator 5 Points Created 5 correct equations
Equation Master 50 Points Earn all 36 achievements

Author Comments

The aim of Equation Master is to create equations using the 6 randomly generated numbers you are given. There are a total of 36 achievements to earn, good luck!

Instructions: Click on each mathematical symbol to change it. Only one equals sign is allowed. Note that standard order of operations (BODMAS/BIMDAS/etc) does not exist in this game; your equation will be as if you enter it into a calculator - each step (multiplying, adding etc.) is done one at a time, no matter what order it would normally be performed in. Once you think you have created a correct equation, click 'check' to check your answer. If your answer is correct, you get a new set of numbers to work with. If however it is wrong, you will get a chance to change the current equation until it is correct. If you feel that the set of numbers you are working with is impossible to create an equation with, or you just feel like a change, you may skip the current set and get 6 new numbers to use. Click the achievements button at any time to view your statistics and achievements without exiting the game.
UPDATE (3/2/12): If you make a mistake, the game reminds you there is no standard order of operations (BODMAS/BIDMAS). "Unchartered Territory" secret achievement made easier.

I suppose this could be a fairly fun game for some people, but for me it was really not all that great. There's not much motivating me to keep playing, there's no replay value as far as I can see, and there's no music either. It's just kind of a dull game.

One last thing, the achievements are a bit over done. One of the worst things an achievement list can possibly do is give the player easy to earn achievements. I mean, you get an achievement for getting an achievement? Two full achievements for just one easy puzzle.

I wanted to like it, but it doesn't accept all correct answers for all the equations..

3+4+3 = 2+2x4
Learn math and try again.

Not a bad game for if you have time to kill and some patience. Throwing the typical order of operations does make this game a tad hard to get the hang of at first, but it does get easier with experience.

However, there is something to be desired as far as user interface is concerned. Some background music would be a nice touch, at least in my opinion.

The game does get repetitive fairly quickly, but then again, that is the nature of mathematics. I would have to say that this is one of those games that is good for a mental mathematics workout, which is good from time to time.

For the most part, the medals are straight forward, except for the "Uncharted Territory" achievement, which is the only one I have not been able to figure out thus far, which is the sole thing keeping me from getting the 36th achievement, and the subsequent Equation Master award. Not having a given goal for it does make it a tad maddening, as it is akin to trying to hit a bulls-eye on a dartboard at night, but such is the nature of the game.

Overall, the game is fairly solid, but seems like a little tweaking would help a lot. It is something different, which I feel is refreshing every now and again.

This game is not for everyone, as each person has their own tastes and preferences and abilities, but it is well worth trying out, again because it is a different type of game, as compared to the mainstream.
