### Happy Pi Day 2017!

It seems just like yesterday we were celebrating Pi day, but here it is again.  This year, there is a new game to help you celebrate the math holiday – Pi vs Pie!  It is a fast-paced arcade game, where you smack up pies with the all-powerful Pi.  It was written such that it will run on multiple platforms.  I want to get away from Flash, so not only was this a fun Pi Day project for me, it was also a chance to experiment with cross-platform coding.

Here are a couple of images – screen shots of the splash screen and of the game in action.  Click on either image to go to the game page.  There is also a Windows version available; please see below for the link.

Please be sure to give us some feedback – we look forward to hearing from you!

## The Pi Game

### Happy Pi Day 2017!

I am a little early with this post, but there is good reason.  For Pi Day 2017, I made a game that you can play online, and right here!  I thought really hard about coming up with a name for it, and after mulling through many candidate names, I came up with, “The Pi Game“.  Yea, yea – the creative juices were flowing!

Anyway, you do need Flash installed in order to play it, so if you do, you are in luck!  If not, then I am sorry – but you can download it here.   If you would rather download a windows version of this game, please download it from our download page.

The object of the game is to get as many digits of Pi displayed as you can by hitting the Pi ball with the paddle.  In order to get the next digit, you also have to have the correct digit selected.  Use the keyboard to select the next digit; you can also use the keypad.

If for some reason you do not know the first 80 digits of Pi, hit the “P” key to have it displayed.

High scores are recorded and stored on your local computer.

The game is working well, but this is the first release – thus the reason I posted a few days before the actual Pi Day 2017.  If you find anything buggy with it, please let me know!
