Math Slicer Gameplay

Each math problem will be displayed in the middle of the app screen. Depending on the speed setting you chose in the main menu, you will have a certain amount of time before the 2 answer options are sent flying through the scene.

You must make your decision quickly to determine which answer correctly solves the math problem and slice it with your finger.

If you slice the correct answer you will gain 100 points + the value of the number sliced. You will also multiply your score by every consecutive correctly answered math problem.

Earning Eggs

math-slicer-game-bonus-meter

Keep an eye on the “Bonus Egg Meter” on the right side of the screen. When the meter is full
and blinking, then answering correctly will send an egg flying upwards from the same spot you swiped the answer to the math problem. To get the egg you must slice it the same way you do the numbers.

It takes 3 correct math problems answered in a row to produce a bonus egg. If your answer is incorrect or you just received an egg, the meter will then reset itself.

The star system

  • math-slicer-phone-app-stars- 1 star for completing the level.
  • math-slicer-phone-app-starsmath-slicer-phone-app-stars- 2 stars for getting all answers correct
  • math-slicer-phone-app-starsmath-slicer-phone-app-starsmath-slicer-phone-app-stars- 3 stars for getting all answers correct and slicing all 5 bonus eggs

 

Bonus Blitz

If at the end of the level you have all 5 bonus eggs, you will enter the bonus round. In the Bonus Blitz round you can slice everything you see. Numbers will fly through the screen, slice them and get points worth their value. Eggs will also appear here, the more eggs you have, the more upgrades and helpers you can buy.
