Poor You. Drafted from a prison colony, forced to pilot an aging freight scow, dodging deadly numerical asteroids with your only tools being a few bonkers and some prime numbers! Plus, your trainers have more insults than information. This game is computationally rated FB-hard (Flappy Bird Hard).
But enough of your bellyaching! Your mission: Mine the Primes! FrackTor is a classic Asteroids-style game with a math twist: all the asteroids (Fracktoroids) are whole numbers, and you can only successfully "explode" them by hitting them with a prime factor! Once they are broken up into primes themselves, you can collect these new primes as ammunition or score them as points.
No advanced math skills required - the gameplay is fun, exciting and dynamic, using either tilt controls or press controls to guide and steer your ship through the hazards. Between play sessions, your trainers Lt. Snark and Lt. Sneer will provide you with guidance, insults, and occasional bad jokes.
Beware the occasional tentacled prime-eating aliens -- or maybe, use them to your advantage! Score a 'Daisy' by breaking a Fracktoroid with an 11, 13 or 17 - or a 'Lotus' by breaking with a 23! Achievements and Leaderboard provided!
FrackTor is written entirely in Swift, using the physics simulations in SpriteKit for smooth, realistic game play. Enjoy!
