Math Games: Professor Pi’s Math Mayhem

Professor Pi's Math Mayhem

I have reached the point where the current game project is ready for beta release.  What this means is that I am asking users to download it and test it on their systems.  I have tested it already on a number of computers, and I have not noticed any bugs, but this does not mean that this math game is bug-free.  So if you do download it, please let me know of any strangeness by adding a post on this page, along with information on your operating system.

Also, I would like to get a feel on what you thing of the game play; is it too easy or too hard?  Is it interesting to play or boring?  I will be adding more interesting features to it in the near future, but for now I really need to test it in this form.  Although designed for use by school children, adults may find this fun to play too.

This beta release is very simple – only one board of play just to test it out before I make it more complex and add new boards.  The object of the game is very simple – eliminate 25 bricks equal to 10.  Here is a screenshot:

I plan on adding power-ups eventually, along with additional boards; you will see this in the next beta release.  For now, I’ll do some design improvements while I await feedback from this release.

If you want to know when the next beta version is released, please check back periodically, or, if you have a Facebook account, you can join our Facebook Page (Click here or look to the right panel for the link).

UPDATE: Version Beta 2.0 has been released. Please read the post here.

Update on the Math Game

August 18th, 2010 by Math Tricks | No Comments | Filed in Games, Math Software

Math game update:

I have almost completed the basic game engine; it should be finished very soon, and I hope to get a beta version of the game out in a week or so.  The thing that is holding me up (besides our three boys) is the fact that my computer is behaving badly, and I fear for it’s life!  I have a new computer, but I have to transfer all files, register them, etc.

Also, I’ll add some bells and whistles to the first version, and I’ll wait for suggestions from users before I add anything too fancy.  I’m going to keep the game description under wraps until the release – so please check back in a few days for updates, of join our facebook page – the link is right there on the right  :)
