Description

On the eve of discovering a mathematical cure for cancer, your mentor, Professor Claire Liddy, is murdered. Fortunately, before she died, the Professor was able to erase many of the plus and minus signs with her bloody hands, saving the cure from falling into the hands of her killers. Now it is up to you to fill back in the missing parts of the equation and resolve your professor's cure. It's up to you to cure cancer -- AGAIN! (It's a comedy). FEATURES - A completely UNIQUE and ORIGINAL puzzle game! - Puzzle gameplay that will make you feel and look SMART! - A thrilling, 80s ACTION MOVIE-inspired storyline! - Full motion video GREEN SCREEN cinematics! With REAL human ACTORS! - NO mention of CANDY or CUPCAKES or sweets of any kind in the story at all! - A variety of different puzzle types and mechanics to keep things FRESH (melting puzzles, number puzzles, and so much more)! - A Daily Challenge Mode featuring 10 NEW puzzles EVERY DAY! - Time Trial mode - try to beat your best time on RANDOM PUZZLES! - Completely INDEPENDENTLY developed and published! (Support your local punk band)! I ignored my newborn child to make this game, please ignore yours to play it!* *Note: I worked on the game every night after my son fell asleep, there is nothing more important to me than being a father. That being said, this game is a CLOSE second. Like neck and neck, really.

  • Really?!

    Why the hell make it available for $2 for a device like iPad 2 when after the first "conversation," the app crashes. Quite infuriating.
  • Fun game with an (intentionally) campy story

    Fun little math game that puzzles you to push the narrative forward. I hope in the sequel, we get to multiply and decide. If you ever played the card game 24 you’ll probably like this. You have to solve equations with pieces missing. Sometimes the operators and sometimes the numbers. Make everything equal zero, there’s a little bit of sudoku where the equations cross and everything has to line up perfectly. It’s not a long game, but it’s funny, challenging and never frustrating to the point of throwing your phone or rage quitting.
  • Cute scenes, half-baked gameplay

    The vignettes are really the only reason to play this game. They are silly, dumb, and sometimes funny. The game, however, starts with a decent foundation and then just remains content to rest there. It never actually gets clever or fun, just more time-sensitive. The game is incredibly short too, as it has 80 “puzzles”, but each one takes about 20 seconds (at most) to solve.
  • Fun game for math!

    I am enjoying the problem solving aspects and challenges in this game. What I would love for the developers to include is a way to restart the board and a way to skip cut scenes. If you make a mistake but are a perfectionist the only way to fix it is to start at the beginning of a series which means you need to rewatch the cut scenes several times depending on your proficiency.

    I've been looking for a math type puzzle game recently and just came across this one. So glad I did. It's a lot of fun and has a ton of character. It's very refreshing to see a game and a developer who knows how to have fun with a narrative.
  • Love it!
