Messy Math is a simple puzzle game that flips traditional problem solving on its head. You're given an answer and are asked to solve for it by building equations using only the digits and operators you've been given.
The end result is a one-of-a-kind game that proves to be both entertaining and educational for a wide range of skill levels, from elementary grade students all the way up to real-life rocket scientists.
Messy Math offers three modes of ranked gameplay. Solve 15 puzzles faster than your competitors in Time Trial or find every possible solution using the tiles you've been provided with in Domination. The flagship Countdown mode throws 30 seconds on the clock and asks you to solve as many puzzles as you can before time runs out. While signed in, your best scores in all three modes are sent to global leaderboards and are ranked alongside your competition.
An unranked Free Play mode is available for those who prefer to learn or practice at a more comfortable pace. Ready to begin with the basics? Customizable difficulty levels allow you to limit equations to simple addition problems. When you're ready to progress, nix the addition problems and test your mastery of the common multiplication tables. The most challenging setting offers Free Play sessions in which longer equations and all operators are fair game.
Messy Math provides an unlimited number of fresh addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division puzzles while your phone or tablet is online, but can be enjoyed on disconnected devices as well. The hope is that when you've finished playing, you'll have had some fun while brushing up on an important practical skill.
