Sum Points

Author Comments

Sum Points is relaxing, soft puzzle game with clear, simple rules. Forty one levels (or more?) will test your brain to the limit. Try to solve them all!

Game objective is to set value of Target tiles to zero by placing Num tiles in right positions. Blue round Num tiles decrease value of Target tiles in a diagonal directions from the point they placed. Red square ones subtract values in horizontal and vertical directions.

Interesting idea. It's not the kind of thing I'd play all in one sitting, but I might come back for the later levels. It does get surprisingly complex. I played the first 8 or so levels, then jumped to 16 just to see what would happen. It was very tangled compared to the start, so I'm glad you've got the steady difficulty ramp you've got.

I noticed that the first few levels give away the answer if you fail the level, and I thought that was insulting. I decided to fail a few on purpose just to see what I'd get. Apparently, the answer only appears on the first 7 of the 41 levels, after which I simply fail. That's more like it. (But I still can't tell why there's an asterisk next to the level number. Is it just meant to look flashy?)

Overall, it's at least as fun as kenken, and about as thoughtful too. It's okay.

A simple idea for a puzzle, but a hard to master! Took some time to get into the thought5 process even in just the first levels... maybe because the symbols don't seem to intuitively tell what they're all about. Why would a circle work diagonally? Considering the effect of a square, something like a diamond seems it'd have a more relevant effect. Well, once you do get into the groove, there's plenty of challenge; variation in the levels, and the interface is easy to use. Good game!
