Hello All,


Calc 4K is a calculation game. You have to get the target to get 500 points. In case you use all the numbers you get an extra 500 bonus.

The game uses an online high-score list based on your public IP address. I know that this is not allowed therefore if you download the executable jar and disconnect the network it will give you a random challenge instead of an on-line one.

Webstart: http://www.martineijmans.nl/c/calc4k.php
Executable jar: http://www.martineijmans.nl/c/calc4k_.jar
Homepage: http://www.martineijmans.nl/c/index.html

You exit by clicking on 'QUIT' next to 'CLEAR'....

Hope you enjoy it!

Best regards from

M.E.

There is no way of quitting the game!  Lips Sealed

Took me a minute to figure out the goal of the game. Probably fun for those who enjoy math Smiley

Hi Appel,

Thanks for trying the game.
At the moment there is a button next to 'clear' you can click to quit the game.

Hope this helps.

That game is so hard to figure out! (how to play, but i did read how to quit)

i didn't see the whole target thing, and still can't see current total thing.

Not my sort of game, but good for those who enjoy it (i think)

What do i put here, i wonder... 218, 211, 207...

1 suggestion - remove the rounding to integers.

It makes it too easy to make excess numbers count as nothing.

e.g.

if( i < j ) expression is i / j
if( i == j ) expression is i - j
if( i > j ) expression is j / i

Thank you all for testing.

Anon666: Good score!
                   Regarding the excess numbers. Hmm. You gave away the easy scoring part  Grin
                   Do you have a suggestion how to communicate the proposed behaviour in-game?

RichardGoulter:
                    Thanks for your reaction!
                    The challenge you need to get is next to the word 'Target'. Maybe I can optimize things and
                    put some sort of arrow in it .... Don't know yet ....
                    I deliberately left out the current total since it should be a challenge and a bit of head-math.


Malohkan:

                You will get the hang of it. Just play some more  Wink

Thanks again for all your feedback. I have still a few months to think on it and the game could be optimized
a lot more than it is right now!

sorry if you hate me, i was being honest

(but neat idea with the total, it does make it harder, thus healthier for the brain, so you probably wont get forgetful memory, what was it called, i forgot, honestly, but haha)

oh wait, amnesia or something, but thats not what i mean...

What do i put here, i wonder... 218, 211, 207...

maybe an undo-button would be good, cause if you make a typo you can more easily correct it - even if this might happen rarely. It takes so damn long to retype everything Wink

very nice game - I like it  Cheesy

Thank you for the interest in this little game.

RichardGoulter:
                  I surely don't hate you! Any positive critism is welcome!

Arne:
                  There is a CLEAR button but I agree that it removes things entirely instead of just one click.
                  I think the CLEAR isn't used too often, so I will take your advice and change to 'UNDO'
                  Hopefully I can move the bytes in the game so it will fit!

Congratulations to the gamer behind IP 69.250.54.85 who is at the moment the highest scorer.

Again, thank you for all the nice words.

ToDo:
                - Target more visible
                - Undo instead of Clear
                - Rounding to integer (don't know how to communicate it ...)

Dear All,

The ToDo list is smaller. There is a flashy target on screen now.
Hopefully this time the target is more visible.

The 'undo' option is a bit difficult to implement due to the way the
handling is coded at the moment. Needs a good re-write to implement it.....
I will investigate.

Anon666:
             Wow that is a nice score!
             What do you think if I change the 'divide by' so that only integers remainders are valid.
             I.e. 100 / 3 ---> Clicking on the three will not be accepted since it is a non integer remainder?
             Sorry if I'm not using right semantics and stuff since I'm not a native english speaker.

If there are more advices and/or improvements please don't hesitate to put them in this thread. Maybe I can deliver  Smiley
