just says "connecting" even after I allowed all scripts to run on the page (dangerous). I can't even play this game to rate the quality so I have no choice but to give a zero rating.

Others have mentioned how pointless this is, but I'd just like to reiterate that mixing up the answers makes it really annoying. What you hope is that the player can get into a state where they answer the questions quickly without being tripped up; but having to read the questions and figure out whether "negative" and "positive" have switched positions since last question really breaks up the flow.

Meh, another kindergarten arithmetic game. Meh, another defense/upgrade game. Nothing new on either front. So complicated a game for having nothing beyond basic arithmetic. You know, just once, I'd like to see a math game where I'm asked to solve a differential equation or need knowledge of real statistics i.e. gaussian/poisson/binomial probability distributions or something, you know, something windows calculator couldn't just as easily do. As if I needed windows calculator to answer these questions as they are. At least for there to be skill levels in the game that did that. I'd like to play such a game just to read the comments about it, from people who have no idea how to do any of the higher levels, and they'd be all angry and rating the game down because they're stupid, that would be kind of funny. So I did the 7th grade decimals and played that turkey all the way to the end of level 16. Yay, I survived with at or near 100% health every level. That's all I get, huh, a screen that says I survived. Never needed to upgrade my castle. Bad enough that it only displays up to 9th grade, but 8th and 9th grade might as well not even be there, you don't even get to choose anything in 8 or 9. But what's really annoying is that you don't even have the problems' numbers randomly generated. I kept getting asked the same damn questions over and over again, level after level. It was usually pretty obvious which one was the right answer just by looking at the last digit if not by its approximate value, but actually getting the same EXACT questions repeatedly really sealed the deal. As for the dynamics of the defense game, they are lacking as well. The upgrades run out pretty quickly and I just end up with more and more money.

Thanks for the detailed feedback. I'll work on the problems you mentioned. Its a tough balancing act between game and math and player based skills and upgrades but feedback like this certainly helps.

The repeated questions is something we can easily fix though!

Man my math skulls aren't what they used to be! Though I've passed all these grades (even the ones that weren't apparently there) long ago, any of the higher ones were a real challenge. Like dividing decimals, ugh, can't remember the last time I did that... easier tasks were a lot more fun, and good practice as I definitely sped up after a while. Seems like a game with something for all ages!

Thanks CD that's impressive! Things can get pretty tough when it comes to higher grades.

**What did you mean about skill that were not there?**

Nice idea & nice presentation even though I didn't have any time to look at the animation, this even on the easiest play.
Also I don't understand why the answers are not ordered from smallest to biggest. In my point of view it just makes the player lose time read-searching all the numbers while he has the correct number in mind... I felt it more annoying then anything else. (and it doesn't leave time to check out the animation :p)

Thanks for the feedback I will see if we can sort answers this way.
