What game is this?

Recommended Posts

That would be Logic Levels from Fisher-Price.

 

Would you mind telling me how you knew what the name of this game is? Just curious...

 

Thanks,

David

When I was a kid, my Dad pounded the multiplication and division tables into my head with flash cards. When my boys were

growing up I was sooo happy when I found Math Attack for the 2600. I didn't even have to watch them because I could tell

by the sounds how well (or bad) they were doing. But unlike you, they both still hate that game!

Glad I didn't try to answer.

 

To me it looks like a forgettable type-in Basic game from a magazine.

(Was my thought as well to be honest, glad someone is more enlightened than us) :)

Frieda Lekkerkerker seems to have been quite influencial with children's software, several titles in her own Inc licensed to Fisher-Price as well as Tandy etc. In case it is the same person, she now runs a B&B in France. I saw a mention that she moved to the US in 1977 for grad school and remained for nearly 20 years, which seems to fit. Perhaps someone for an ANTIC podcast?

I vote Rybags make some awesome learning games, math, and coding! Now that would rock!

I did a quick google search on "Math Attack Atari 2600" because I hadn't seen or heard of it before but I didn't find anything on it. Did you get the name right?

Thanks for the quick response!

 

Looks interesting. I'll have to try it out.

 

You're welcome. Just curious where you found the screenshot with no description?

I could easily be mistaken about the name. In the middle on the bottom of the screen it gave you a math problem.

On one side of the bottom was the total number of problems and on the other side of the bottom was the number

you had gotten right. The rest of the screen had numbers floating around and you used the joystick to click on the

correct answer to the problem. If a number touched the bottom of the play area it meant the timer had run out and

you got a raspberry sound. It also would list the problems you got wrong so you could see where you needed to

do additional work.
