Summary

Simple but absolutely fun!

The Good

This game is loved for its simplicity; as one of the first Atari games to be released out there, this one is the simplest, most basic of all. All you do is move around the block to solve the operation (adding, subtracting, multiply, divide, etc...). Nothing really mind-blowing, but it's just plain fun to resolve simple operations. I'd spend hours playing this game and never get tired of it;

The Bad

People will complain that it's an electronic version of what the were taught in first grade. Yes, all you do is just move around the joy stick to solve the operation. the absence of decimals sure cripples some of the gameplay.

The Bottom Line

The title says it all, but being one of the launch titles of the Atari 2600, this one actually gives you something smart. In here, you learn be and be entertained at the same time.

If you're rusty on your math, play this game: you'll feel better afterwards!
