Couldn't Get Worse


Ok, so where to start well if 2=1, 3=2, 4=3, 5=4 then what does 1=.

Then it will ask something like; then what does this equal and 3 fingers will pop up on the screen, so you press 2 because that is what it told you. You get it wrong. So on the next go the same question pops up and you press 3 thinking it is only possible that it is 2 like they told you or 3 which is what its showing. But, its neither, if it was a fair game and the answer was 2 or 3 you would pass to the next level. To be truthful I have tried every answer about 4 maybe 5 times and I've only passed to question 3... ONCE.
So my advice to all of you whom are about to purchase this game, it is a waste of storage and download. Feel free to give it a crack it was just a heads up.

Memory Not Math.


My dad thought this was fake and you had to pay to get it right, but after 2 hours of trying, I proved him wrong. It doesn't seem too simple for people 2 figure it out and you can see all the people in the leader boards who got less than 4. A good hint is the title of the level, it's called memory, not math which means you need to remember previous hands to get it.
P.S I have finished all the level and the puzzle is the same on each level but needs more memory.

Really it is an easy game...


So there I was 30 minutes later and it hit me BOOM! I literally slapped my head for not seeing it earlier. You definitely don't need to buy the solution.

To all the people that have rated it a 1 or a 2 because you don't understand it/can't work it out etc, shame on you. Maybe you were dropped on your head one too many times and that's why you don't get it. It's easy.

I'll give you a tip, - not the answer, but a tip - 'watch the hand, the answer's is in the hand.

I gave this app a 4 out of 5 cause I'm still working on unlocking lvl3. Once I do I'll give it a 5.

Seriously it's not hard and download it, it's heaps of fun to do and even more fun to watch people struggle with it! I've certainly worked my abs off! :-)

Have fun kids.
