This is a math-based shoot-em-up made for the "Adult/Educational" competition at TIGSource.

Every enemy in the game has a numeric value, and every value has an enemy. You can absorb enemies into the spinning + sign (addition), and then shoot the sum back at other enemies as a negative number (subtraction). You can absorb up to a set limit (it starts at 10), and shoot through as many enemies as the value totals. It's best to keep the totals balanced, though, as any leftover negative value will come back at you afterward.

Awesome !
Even the the addition and substractions are not that complicated unless you're under the age of 7, the game is really fun to play and have some original mechanics.
Great work !

Almost everything about this is pretty awesome. I absolutely love the atmosphere and the graphical style.

Don't like mouse control personally though =/

Amazing game-- quite fun, easy to master, pleasing to the eye. However, as far as I can tell, there are no checkpoints! Going back to the beginning after getting to 14 birds is kind of disappointing...

Very original, and very good graphics.

That being said I didn't enjoy it, and I really tried to enjoy it too because it was so well made.

I really enjoyed this. Very nice graphics and concept. I've played it a few times and I'll definitely go back to it again. I'm not sure how "educational" it is, but it's nice to have something to think about other than avoiding stuff in one of these games.

Technically as close to perfection a homebrew game can get;

- Original gameplay mechanics
- Superb graphics and pixel art
- Outstanding musical score
- Challenging but fair gameplay
- ....do you really need anymore??

Crazy fun. It keeps freezing, though. I usually get to around 350 before it freezes. :/
