Mighty Math from TreeFall Studios is a minimalist arcade-style brain training experience on PlayStation 4. Your goal is to collect the amount of numbers represented by the sphere on the upper left corner of the screen so that you can complete the round and move on to the next one. As you move the square at the center of the screens, you must keep an eye on the + signs inside of it.
Why? Because you must keep its value between 0 and 9 at all times. If you go over or under said parameters, then it’s game over, and you’ll have to start over again! You’ll be aiming at getting the highest score possible for each run as you compete against yourself. For every round you clear, you’ll receive 100 points. Every number you collect will give you 10 points, as well as the total value for said number. Collect a 3, and you’ll get 3 extra points. Collect a -7, and you’ll get 7 extra points.
The controls for this minimalist puzzle game are simple and to the point so that you can focus on all of the quick math that you need to complete to survive. You’ll move the square in the middle of the screen with the left analog stick as you try to collect the numbers needed to increase your score and stay alive without making too many mistakes. You can speed up by pressing and holding down the R2 button. If you need to escape from certain doom, you can press the Triangle button to use a bomb that will destroy all numbers on the screen, as well as a few of the ones that are almost ready to enter.
Mighty Math has a full trophy list with a Platinum trophy. The game has 10 Bronze trophies, 9 Silver trophies, and 7 Gold trophies. To get the Platinum, you’re going to need to survive the first round, collect the numbers 1 through 9 at least once, survive all the way up to round 15 in a single run, collect every number in rounds 1 and 2 in a single run, and score more than 4,500 in a single run, since there are also trophies for scoring 3,000, 3,500, 3,750, 4,000, and 4,250 points.
Mighty Math is a fun minimalist arcade-style brain training experience. It has that “just one more round” element going on for it that will keep you coming back for more as you try to beat your own high score. Add a full trophy list with a Platinum trophy, and this one is an easy one to recommend. Mighty Math is out on PlayStation 4 at a $3.99 price.
