I got 6s in the first try :)
Nice take on the theme! I wouldn't mind a few more levels though :)

Great use of theme, nice little game, and I really enjoyed the different distractions that you had :P I featured it in my comilation video of Ludum Dare 27 Games, if you wanna check it out

Woah, that was hard ^^ I couldn't think about math and count that at the same time.

Very interesting premise, but its not working properly in chrome. No arkanoid, no anything. Except the last math question, its working.

I liked the simple but fresh take on the theme.

I don't know what it means but I got a 7.1s overall error. Would love to have more explanation at the end.

The concept is very good I would love to see more distracting games like a lot of counters on the page which have wrong time speed :)

That was pretty interesting. Maybe you should've added something like a metronome because it was way too easy

I am embarrassingly bad at maths :/
Neat little idea, felt like a Psychology test. I'd like to see more rounds in the more 'gamey' style like the second, third and fourth rounds.
Perhaps I'm just really silly, but I must admit in the first round I thought that it started counting down from 13 was the 'distraction'.
Good little idea with nice, clear presentation
(I had no problems running the game in Chrome)

This was really cool. :)
simple case -1.9 s.
arkanoid -0.2 s.
evading -0.1 s.
catching the boxes -0.5 s
math -1.3 s.
Got total of error value 4s. I can't believe I got the worst on simple case, haha.

-4.5, 2.0, -1.7, -0.2, -0.7 --> 8.7
needed some time to figure out the first three seconds were real. I've seen some more of these games, but this one is the best as it has other mini games in it :D

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.
