How to Play
Slide the negative number blocks from either side atop those in the center to get the center squares to each equal zero.
Starting the Game
Click on the yellow button in the bottom center of the welcome screen to start the game.
This will bring up the level select screen featuring 20 levels.
Initially only the first level will be available & you unlock subsequent levels as you beat each level.
Your web browser automatically saves your level progress.
Use your mouse left click button to select tiles, drag them into position, and release.
Touch the finger with your screen to use it like a mouse.
Within the levels there are 4 buttons across the top: game menu, restart game, how to play, and sound control.
The current level is shown in the to center of the screen.
Drag the tiles from the sides over the tiles in the center of the screen.
Your goal is to get each tile in the center of the screen to exactly zero by adding the other tiles to them.
If tiles overlap a blank space those tiles disappear.
If a tile value is set to zero it will show a checkmark.
You can’t beat the levels if any tiles remain with a value above zero or go down through zero.
The early levels are quite straightforward, though as you advance through the game some times require matching multiple sets of tiles over the top of them.
One of the best ways to solve more complicated puzzles is to look at whatever cells in the center of the game have the highest values and try to figure out what combinations of placements help you get rid of those.
If you place a tile in the wrong position you lose the level.
You can repeat levels an unlimited number of times.
The game is suited for people who like math and puzzle games.
The game has no adult content.
