  • Don’t let the complexity scare you away Apr 6, 2021

    I really enjoyed this game. You can enjoy it on a couple different (intellectual) levels. First, it’s just a very fun idle game that is quite well balanced. Upgrades come and take a bit of time and then the things that become bothersome to manage become automatic. Second, it’s a game about math. For most of the equations you don’t need to understand them to progress. At the very end of the game there are some that you will need to understand, but that’s a very small part of the game and some web searching or a helpful soul on discord will get you sorted out. I’m an electrical engineer and thought the equations were well thought out and straightforward, although there was one that still confuses me to this day, but that wasn’t one I needed to know. There is no pay wall, just watch and ad to get a few hours of boosted progress. Or pay a small one time transaction to always be boosted. Also, it has an end. I personally like that because I don’t feel like I’m playing just to play and finally delete it one day when I’m tired of the same old routine. It’ll take you several weeks to get to the end, maybe longer. I highly recommend it if you like idle games and/or like math.

    Classic idle experience with numbers bigger than ever. No intrusive ads or monetization, purely optional for temporary boosts. Meta currency can be obtained by completing puzzles, which are very good at killing a minute or two between buying upgrades, achievements, or just playing. Overall a great idle game!

    You put a review and you get a response soon. The game has a clean interface and great story. I love this game and the active dev. Edited from before where I mentioned Occam's razor
  • A simple and interesting game Jun 12, 2021

    By Dumb thinker
    This is a really simple game. Basically it allows players to modify the parameters of a function, and the goal is to push the function value as high as possible (and as fast as possible). What’s interesting about the game is that the player does not need to understand the actual formula. The player can test different parameters to get a feeling of rate of the change; and slowly moving toward the “optimal” parameter. I rated this game 4 stars because I believe there are many other ways to improve the game. Imagining if we could map the function to another space, which would reflect the overall growth of the original function. It could brings a more intuitive way for players to evaluate the growth of the function by changing certain variables. Or map the function to a random space, in which it would draw something chaotic. Every time the player opens the game up, he/she could see a few different graphs. It is always fun to use a function to draw other functions, wondering which variable(s) is(are) causing those curvatures. If so, the “idle” part of the game could become much more fun. As it becomes a real experiment, and the player would be waiting for the resulting graph. I haven’t finished the game yet. Those are Just a few thoughts popping up when I was playing it. Hoping we could dig more potential out of this simple game. Best regards.

    Great game. Feels repetitive just before certain automations. Play through it. It gets fun again, I promise. Weirdly addicting for staring at a mathematical equation as a video game.

    I don’t really understand it. I’m taking calculus 2 and I still trying to wrap my head around the various methods of integration and series/sums of convergence and divergence. Im not doing well in the class tbh. I just keep pressing random variables. Is the goal to have the function runaway exponentially? Like x^x? Or something reaching infinity near a vertical asymptote? It keeps leveling out in rocket fashion like a square root function. That’s annoying lol but I still like to see the graph change as I press variables. Too many variables though. I don’t even see all of them, but maybe it’s just because I don’t understand. Or maybe I have to figure out what those variables do? Even though they’re not explicitly written in the function? People are saying it’s a fun game nonetheless

    The only idle game that really deserves attention. You don't need to be on a network to really enjoy it and the side puzzles unlike so many other idle games. Wish there were more like it!

    This is exactly what I wanted when mobile games began to take over the market. It’s simple, fun, there’s zero pressure to pay for anything, and there’s a finish. What I appreciate the most is there is an end to this incremental game. It takes a while to get to obviously and the creator is always adding new features but there’s a end point you want to reach. This alone solves so many problems with how mobile games are today with the pay to win model and the GACHA character collection part of most idle games these days. They never want to lose you as a customer so they never put a finish to the game. This feels like you’re progressing through a story which has a goal. No loot boxes or extra currencies. This is the perfect idle game. It is what every idle game should strive to be and I really hope that people take notice of how you can be successful without throwing a billion ads in every 3 minutes or making it pay to win.

    Gameplay that actually makes you think -- the nerve! Great low stress game for math geeks or numbers weirdos (and yes that's a non-exclusive or).
  • The best idle game I’ve ever played Mar 15, 2021

    By bbuerk
    This game is the most mechanically deep idle game I’ve ever played. Custom automation gets rid of the most monotonous parts of this genre while challenging you to think mathematically. Multiple levels of prestige and the unique mini games help keep the game interesting. The pacing is almost perfect. Progress normally happens fairly quickly and, when it doesn’t, using a good automation expressions lets you sit back and wait for the speed to catch up again. I have no complaints outside of occasional lag on the mini games, which can be annoying if you’re trying to beat your top time.

  • Great game, with some performance issues Apr 8, 2021

    By Ckin224
    The game is really fun and the mechanical complexity is well thought out for an idle game. The various prestige systems have been interesting to discover and experiment with. My largest complaint is that performance can be a bit spotty at times. Turning my graph quality to low seems to have helped, but even letting the game sit without doing anything sees dropped frames. Using the accelerator button, playing the mini games and immediately after prestiging the performance issues seem to worsen. Overall though the game is still playable and this is more an inconvenience than anything else.

    Fun idle game! Unique "story" and pretty active game play, despite the idle title. I saw it compared to Antimatter Dimensions once. Very different. This is a simpler shorter game, but it's very fun. I would recommend to a friend! Also, extremely active devs makes me think that in the future this game is only going to get better. But please please let me adjust the ui. I can no longer see the whole equation. Make sad.
