Mazematics

3D Action Game developed for Android on Unity with C# scripting
2018

Mazematics is a 3D action game which plays with your mathematical, memory and reflex skills. How good are you with Mathematics? No no.. not on Algebra, Calculus etc, just addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, mod.. Good, aren't you? Then get ready to quickly find answers for such simple mathematical questions to guide the player to run through the maze path. Achieve longer distances to prove your mathematical skills and challenge your friends on social media by sharing your own Mazematics award. The longer you run, the higher the award you get.

I can't remember the highest award to achieve on this game... Can you find that out? If you think you found it, I bet, that's not the highest, try again to find out ;-) Well, or you can challenge your friends with your highest to see if there is one above.

This game is completely FREE- NO PAYMENTS and NO ADS. The game is all yours to play free and enjoy playing with your mathematical and reflex skills.

The game has a non-mathematical mode if you want to play only with your reflex skill. Also includes Kids mode with simplified version of the game to guide the player by kids. For kids, this game will be more educative along with fun.
