And the onslaught of fall commitments continues. While work, school, and life conspired to eat up most people’s time, a bunch of you did manage to hammer out some pretty solid games this month. Let’s view them, shall we?
Explore a three-dimensional world solely made up of colored numbers in this visually compelling game. Use the mouse to control the camera and arrow keys to navigate.
Target moving numbers using +, -, *, or / to approach your target number. Use the right mouse button to change operation, and the left mouse button to perform the operation. Requires the Love engine.
Search the screen for hidden numbers by dropping physics-enabled balls. Also check out Magic Brain Training, which is more of a brain exercise than game.
Part Sidoku, part rubik’s cube – all mind-blowingly challenging. I need a bigger brain to play this game.
A puzzling-platform like game. Navigate using the arrow keys.
Swap numbers around until you get them in order. The name on this one is exceedingly accurate.
An interesting spatial reasoning/math solving combination – compete to see who can solve this in the least number of moves.
Virii, by Dustin
Virii have attacked your computer, changing some of the 1s and 0s into… 2s! Use the + and – keys to add or subtract from any number on your screen. Surround a virus with either all 1s or all 0s and it will be neutralized. Press ‘r’ to reset the puzzle. Requires the Love engine.
At last, a game about solving multiplication problems and crushing rodents with an over-sized mallet!
A run and gun game. Try to defeat the giant robot boss using a gun that changes numbers – interesting concept here.
Another stylish entry by Peter Groeneweg. Play as a ninja-themed number and do combat with other numbers using one of 4 shurikens to answer math problems correctly.
I wish I knew what was going on in this game.
Click to make the number bigger every 30 seconds. You too can construct numbers with significance like the one to the left.
Quick addition/subtraction combat combined with light RPG elements!
Buy and sell stocks in this frantic trading game.
An interesting shooter by the creator of Weapon of Choice. 1ups become active as other ships the moment you collect them!
Eat static and moving numbers which are less than your level,then you can up your level after get 10 score.
Look for next month’s theme announcement, it’s going to be a doozy and a first-ever for EGP!
