🔑 Mathlock!

A math puzzle for the Game Boy - solve as many equations as possible by matching operators to the numbers before time is up!


The total is computed from left to right, and must match the goal. Each match generates a new equation and adds a few seconds to the clock. Points are doubled in Hard Mode. Try to make a new high score!

Simple and fun. I’m a sucker for math games. Progressing to the next level/equation could use some sort feedback though, or a delay showing you got it before moving one. Just a thought, still a fun game.

Hey thanks for playing! And that's great feedback, I'll add a little pause there to make it more satisfying.
