NumberPeeps

Home

A fun and slightly educational PC game for two players, written by R.Wills in C#.

Guide the NumberPeeps through the mazes of arithmetic avoiding the traps and hazards, on their quest to level up from zero to ten.

Ten

The movement controls are:
Player 1 (green):
A   up
Z   down
X   left
C   right
Player 2 (red):
J    up
M   down
<    left
>    right

It's possible for one player to control both as there aren't usually situations where the NumberPeeps must move exactly at the same time.

The main menu looks like this:

Choose in the game options whether or not you want to include multiplication and division in the puzzles, and also whether you want the annoying Polygogs (the triangle, square, pentagon and hexagon) to oppose you. Also turn off sound if you want a quiet game. Then click "Play Quest Mode" to play the game. Quest mode takes you through ten levels on your journey from zero to ten. "Test mode" is just for when you want to perfect your methods by choosing one single level to practice on.


Your NumberPeep can change its number by using the arithmetic pills available in the game. For example, if your NumberPeep is a "4" and it uses a "+2" it becomes a "6". The NumberPeeps always start as the number they had become in the last level, and the door over at the right hand side shows what number they must become to unlock it. Beware of the moving Polygogs on your journey, and be careful with levers and falling blocks. White pills may have beneficial effects so you should try to find out what those are. That's all there is to it really!

Sometimes one or both NumberPeeps may get stuck and be unable to reach the door. In that case, press ESC and confirm that you want to give up the level.

Notice that this is a game of cooperation. If one NumberPeep gets stuck and has to give up, both will lose a life. They are supposed to help each other.
