Can We Talk About Number Jumble?

Recommended Posts

Where were these graphics hiding this whole time?

 

They're incredible. Huge backgrounds, large MOBs, multiple environments, and distinct gameplay mechanics for each vehicle.

Yes, a very pretty game. I remember accidentally ordering a 3rd copy of Chopper Command, and had to send it back to trade it for Number Jumble.

Likewise here. I have never even looked at it.

I figured it was a math game for little kids.

I better hook up my ECS and see if it even boots up.

Thanks for the nudge and strong game endorsement guys!!!👍

You can play with or without the ECS.  All the ECS is used for is the keyboard, so you can use the screen as a scratchpad while trying to solve tougher math problems.

See - I told you guys! Honestly, the game itself isn't too bad. Yes it's a math game, but the math part honestly seems kinda secondary to blasting aliens. Which is the way it should be.

I had fun playing it a little bit yesterday.

I am definitely trying to go further into the game today AND read the instruction book.

What a terrible name for this game, too. There's nothing about the title to hint at the semi decent game contained therein.

 

Alien Arithmetic

Math Blaster

Number Quest

 

I'm just spit-balling here

Plus its mention of ECS implies it won't work without it, and so it got shelved during the Mattel Electronics reorganization late in 1983, just before it could go into production.  I'm surprised INTV didn't recycle the background graphics into another game.
