Fun with Numbers is a game released for the Atari 2600. It was also released as Basic Math.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

A very simple math game for kids.

Each game of Basic Math gives the player a set of ten basic math problems (i.e. simple addition, subtraction, multiplication or division) to solve. The player is presented with two numbers and a function, and inputs the answer by cycling through numbers with the joystick. A timer option is available to ramp up the difficulty. The game has eight primary game settings - basically two settings for each mathematical function. Games 1 - 4 allow you to select one of the numbers you will be working with, while 5 - 8 give random questions.
