Wow... I never thought i'd say this, but that was an enjoyable math quiz.

Very creative, I must admit that I don't think anyone else on this site has the ability to make a math test that I would find as enjoyable as this one. While the math was incredibly simple, the situations really gave it a nice element in my opinion.

It wasn't short, with quite a number of questions. But you literally can't fail, since if you make a wrong choice it simply makes you go back. A harsher penalty might be nice. That may not have been the best thing to do in my opinion, but I think it helps make this a great storygame for young children.

I liked the pictures, because while they were very simply sketched, they related quite well to the storygame and gave me more of a picture of what was happening since the writing failed to do so. But that's not a bad thing, I imagine it would be hard to make a fleshed out math test xD

Nice work, i'll give this a 4/8. Santa is a fatass by the way :P

First just let me say I liked it! This game came out appropriately at the beginning of December and got me in a nice Christmassy mood, that said, I did rate it as "4, slightly more fun than homework" 'cos to be fair, that's literally what it is, and that's not meant as an insult or anything, it's just a kind of fun version of a young kid's homework. The math was extremely basic addition and subtraction, and as an adult, I'd like to have seen some multiplication, division, fractions and percentages in there just to add some variety, but then I don't really know what age kids you were aiming this game towards, so I can't complain. The highlight for me was the profile sticker at the end. I know they're unnecessary and most people can't be bothered with them but personally I'm a sucker for profile badges, it's just a cute, fun little reward for playing the game and I always appreciate when someone takes the effort to make one, so thanks for that! Despite rating this game low, there's nothing actually wrong with it and it does exactly what it's supposed to do, it gives us a few simple math problems to solve while getting us into the Christmas spirit, so well done for that! ^_^

Great game especially for those needing help in addition and subtraction.

Cute for little kids with addition and subtraction skills in high, multiple numbers. Nice story. Great job!!! :-D

I honestly just read it out of curiosity and for points but to be honest all you need is a better story and a worse penalty for answering wrong but until you have that my rating stays 3

This was fun--would have loved it when I was young!

I would have loved to play this game back in my younger years learning addition and subtraction. Good job.
