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

    By Jda098753
    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.

    Literally the best idle game I've ever played. No grimy monetisation tactics, but you can spend a one time cost of a few dollars to remove ads which I payed to support the developer. The progression in this game is incredible. There's at least 4 different progression loops that get unlocked. Just as I thought I was near the end, a whole new set of systems opened up. There's an actual story with an ending. And it encourages you to think about optimal paths rather than mindlessly upgrading.

    Lots of fun, engaging for a maths lover and doesn't require you to spend lots of money or watch tons of ads every day to actually progress. I completed the game and have to say it's probably the best idle game I've played!
  • 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.

    I've played this game for well over 6 months, and I beat the storyline this morning. I have played so many idle games that I feel confident in saying this is perhaps one of - if not THE - best ones I've ever played. If you're worried that this game might be "too mathmatical" for you, don't worry! The trial and error of it is surprisingly intuitive, and the game also has a great reddit community happy to help. To the dev, thank you for this very meaningful experience, I won't forget it.

    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

    As a math student I'm amazed how interesting this game is. At first, it seems a bit slow, but things start to escalate quickly after a couple hours, and then you find yourself stuck in it for months! What was kind of confusing to me: the graph was shown in ee in the very beginning of the game, when double logarithm notation wasn't introduced yet, so the feeling of exponential growth wasn't properly conveyed.
  • If only there were more games like this Apr 11, 2021

    By Sbwarren
    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.

    Amazing idle game. Almost no in app purchases, only one to have a permanent ad boost, which isnt needed. First mobile game in a long time that has felt like a game first rather then something to make money. Not to mention that the idle game itself is very high quality with lots of things to do. Would give it more stars if I could.
  • 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.

    Loved playing, finally got to the point of unlocking x1 with my psi(cost 1000). 50 hours wasted in the past 2 months, most of those hours were holding down the speed up button while sitting in classes. Now a "time change" was detected, whatever that is. And I need to either reset, or wait for it to unlock in what looks to be a month? Not worth the time investment if you're just going to be locked out of the game

    The game can be a bit intimidating and confusing at first especially if you aren’t savvy with math but it is one of those games the more you play the more you understand it. It doesn’t force ads whatsoever and the boost they apply never feels like it’s forced to progress past a certain point. The game is continuously updated and you can tell the developer cares about their product.

    This is a pretty interesting, somewhat appropriately nerdy idle game. I just discovered the music, and I really like how moody it is, but one thing I would love to have implemented is, could you please have it so the accelerator button also increases the speed of the music? Thanks!
  • 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.

    This is an excellent, though very VERY abstract, 'clicker' / 'idle game. Watch the numbers go up. Reset. Watch the numbers go up more quickly. If you know the paper clip game or the cookie game, then you already understand this game.

    Simple, elegant idle game with a quick and varied enough progression system to keep you engaged for a long time. Very minimalist, large contrast from some other games I've played which rely on fancy effects and animations but may not be for everyone. Ads are useful and unobtrusive. Overall a good experience.

    It seems like a game I'd like, but the ui on my s21 ultra is a little off. The stats at the top of the screen get cut off and wrap in really odd ways and I'm not quite sure why.
