A game out of the box.

Meh. I didn't like the challenge levels so much, as the second one goes against the theme thus far of using every match. I know it says "put the matches in the box", but I figured that just meant to take them out and put them back. Perhaps I really am a retard, who knows.

Also, I dislike that it just 'gives' you the answer. I wanted a hint to help figure it out, I didn't want to breeze through the damn thing.

Good game, but there are bug(19 level in yellow): I have used battery and I have seen answer: 4 + 1 = 5.
Yeah, in the beginning of the level matches was: 4 - 7 = 6. It was special level where I need delete some matches. HOW CAN I DO THAT MINUS IN PLUS?

You can take matches from the box

BomberJ is right. The game does not accept all solutions.

Level 6 in the orange stages

6 - 3 = 3 will *not* be accepted

Instead you have to do
2 + 3 = 5

or you won't pass that stage.

Cool concept, and kinda fun game, but it has many flaws that drag it from being as enjoyable as it could be:

First, the blocked matches. If I can't move certain matches for a puzzle, it should be signaled in some way (changing it's colour or something), instead of having to click all the matches to see what I can or can't move.

Second, the clues. I haven't used clues for more than a couple levels, but those times it straight up gave me the answer. That kinda defeats the purpose of solving a puzzle. You could have them say stuff like "The number X is in there" or similar.

And last, some equations have multiple possible solutions, but the game only accepts one, so there're times when I put a logical answer, but nothing happens. For that, you could have the 'moves counter' mark the minimal moves the puzzle needs to be solved, or any similar indication. That way we would know when we're doing something 'wrong'.

Yeah, they're only 3 flaws, but essential ones (in my opinion) that, if fixed, could make this game really cool. For what it is, though, I still had fun with it. Good work!

Nope. This game accepts all solutions ) \_(~_~)_/
