New Online Math Game – Continuum

Continuum – Action Math Game!

The new online math game is out, and I hope you will enjoy it!

For this game, I included several math aspects.  The most obvious one is the use of fractals for the backgrounds.  I think they add a level of depth to the play fields – and are really cool to look at!

Next, I made all the bricks in the game golden rectangles.  Well, as close as I could anyway, because I had to use integer units in the design.  The dimensions of the bricks are 41 x 25 pixels, giving a ratio of 1.64 width to height, which is just a tad more than the actual value of approximately 1.61803399.

Lastly, I made as targets in the game polygons, which contain interfering balls after the polygons are destroyed.

This game is a little more mainstream from the others I have made for Math Tricks, but I think it is the most enjoyable.  Here is a game-play screen shot:

Anyway, it is online, and you can play it here.  Please feel free to give me any comments and suggestions!

Fractals Everywhere!

Fractals Online

Although I’ll be using the free fractal generator mentioned in the last post, I have found a number of others at wyomingwebdesign.com that the webmaster has generously allowed me to use in the game.  Here are a few examples of the fractals available there:

Yes, there are many places online where you can find fractals, but this site allows you to use them in your web pages.  They also offer free website template!  Anyway, thank you Jeff for letting me use these images.
