Nice and solid! 10 Seconds is very tight time limit to count numbers, so I didn't do too well in the game, but it plays well!

I love those graphics ; it is not the first time I see something which gives off this simple and colorful vibe, and I wished I could do that kind of thing.
And the mechanic itself is pretty good, although I am quickly running out of time when I do not find the answer within the first 5 seconds.
I definitely recommend trying this one.

Fun once you get to grips with the concept. The time limit makes it very difficult to beat, so the game is perhaps not best suited to the theme. I would probably consider buying the more relaxed version on Android though! Very nice music too.

Great presentation, good idea. I personally like this kind of brain teasers, and this one was fresh and interesting. Not sure 10s is enough tough, it seems game could get more interesting if I had more time.

Cool idea. The relaxing is much more fun though so I can't say the theme worked that much in this games favor.
Also I think it would be nice if the operations was shown alongside the numbers because I keep forgetting what colours mean what.

I like it - a bit hectic sometimes, but it's really polished and fun to play.

@mitkus try the relaxed version :)
@Xgor I tried doing that but it made the game looks bad

Sorry, this isn't a proper compo entry if you didn't make the music.

Superb, I love the gameplay, it's nothing fancy, very simple, concise and challenging, it sure puts your brain to work. Very nice!

I really like it. It's very simple, but it just works.

This is a really excellent example of a perfectly executed puzzler based on the theme. I will definitely be coming back for more!

Awesome game! This is one case where the theme ended up hurting the game in the end. Thanks for the relaxed version!

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
