In sum, Basic Math is a very simple math quiz hindered by its unexciting visuals and the unneeded complexity of its option settings.

It really is just basic math problems, so I guess you can’t fault them for truth in advertising. I can only imagine some kid getting an Atari VCS on Christmas Day 1977 only to discover that Basic Math was the only cart his parents bought. Oh well – at least he still had Combat.
