Description

MelRep is a puzzle game with numbers. There are three variations, selected by pressing "reset" and the desired number, as follows:
  1. MelRep: the object is to sort the figures 1 to 9 in ascending order, from left to right. The figures appear scrambled in a random order, and the player must move pairs of figures, by switching their positions. Two sets of arrows, one above and one below, show which figures will be changed. The arrows can only be placed in 4 possible positions. The player has to try to assemble the figures with the minimum amount of moves possible. There are 9 difficulty levels, selected in the beginning of the game.

  2. Reverse: this variation is similar to the previous one. Once again the object is to sort the numbers in ascending order, from left to right. After selecting the difficulty (from 2 to 9, 2 for a game of 2 figures and 9 for a game of nine figures), the player has to sort them by reversing the order of a given number of figures. To do so, the player enters the number of figures to be reversed in the numeric keyboard. The computer then reverses the number of figures entered, counting from left to right. So, if the player presses "3", the computer will reverse the first three figures; if 5 is pressed, the first five figures will be reversed. The player has to try to assemble the figures with the minimum amount of moves possible; the higher the number entered, the more moves are needed.

  3. Countdown: the object is, from a number given by the computer, to reach the number "01" before the opponent does, by taking turns subtracting a number from the starting one. This game has 6 variations, selected at the start of the game by pressing one of the following numbers:
    1. one player, random starting number, player goes first, selectable maximum number to be subtracted (from 3 to 9);
    2. two players, random starting number, right player goes first, selectable maximum number to be subtracted (from 3 to 9);
    3. one player, the starting number is 23, player goes first, maximum number to be subtracted is 3;
    4. one player, random starting number, computer goes first, selectable maximum number to be subtracted (from 3 to 9);
    5. two players, random starting number, left player goes first, selectable maximum number to be subtracted (from 3 to 9);
    6. one player, the starting number is 23, computer goes first, maximum number to be subtracted is 3.
