## Math Tricks Presents – Continuum II!

We have a new game for you – well, sort of.  It is a squeal to the last math game.  In this game, though, I eliminated the fractal backgrounds.  Although many people liked them, I received too many negative reviews about how the  images made it difficult to see the ball during run time.

Also, I slowed down the ball speed a bit to make it a little easier.  Yea, I also found a ball speed bug that was corrected.  LOL – no matter what, it seems, I get elusive bugs in my games, so if you see any in this one, please let me know!

## 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!
