First again!!

I still hate myself.

Carly said...

Second :)

OK, either it's not loading or I am dense. I am hoping the former. Did anybody play this yet?

kristen said...

It's "not loading" for me either, so I'm beginng to suspect this might be the game...we shall see.

Anonymous said...

anyone figure this out? it doesnt appear to be working

Anonymous said...

clever!

Anonymous said...

I wish whoever wrote the last comment would enlighten us all because I can't seem to get the game to work either... Not sure if it's just me though still...

I kill number 6... become number 7 and can't get passed the level :S

Anonymous said...

how do you start the game?

Anonymous said...

aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrggghh!
not helpful but accurate.

Anonymous said...

You need to click 'Level select' to start!

Anonymous said...

There is nothing to click!

Anonymous said...

You are all right-It does nothing for me,too.

Anonymous said...

Not loading. Just an empty progress bar.

kaila said...

Just hit the refresh button and you're good to go...

Carly said...

Refreshed it about 20 times, and there's still just this empty bar.

???

Anonymous said...

Empty progress bar in Safari. Works fine in Firefox.

qwerty said...

i dont get how 1*9=3
???

qwerty said...

to anonymous:

I kill number 6... become number 7 and can't get passed the level :S

-you pass the level when you get the green light at the end. I'm stuck on level 3.

qwerty said...

Level 3 solution:

1*9/9*3=3

kaila said...

@ qwerty : how'd you get past level 2? 1 kills 6, turns into 7 but the math equation is 1+6=6 and the light does not turn green. What am I missing?

Anonymous said...

I killed the six and turned into a 7 but the equation at the bottom says "
1+6=6" and the button at the end is red so I can't proceed.
How does this game work?

qwerty said...

when you start level 2:
the equation at the bottom says
1=6
you are number 1
the number you need to attack is 6
1(you)
attack #6 with * (multiplication)
1*6=6
you need to attack the numbers with the math signs to get the correct answer then you move to the next level.
Im currently stuck on level 4 because im not really that great at doing math in my head :\

qwerty said...

P.S. what ever number you are, when you attack the next number you turn into the solution of that math problem.
for example- 1 attacked 8 with +
I turned into 9. the next number I attacked was 2 with -
so I turned into 7.

you cant become a number more than 9 or less than 1. If you do the level starts over.

qwerty said...

Level 4:
1=9 at bottom of screen
I start as 1
I confront 8, 2, 6, 4 in that order
I need to end up as 9.

Does that make sense?

qwerty said...

Level 4 solution:

1+8-6+2+4=9 yay!!

on this one you have to go to the upper level to subtract 6 but dont get spotted by 2!

kaila said...

Thank you qwerty - I was trying to use the keypad 1,2,3,4 and that doesn't work. Only the numbers on top of the keyboard! Gotcha!

JAYPEE said...

Bart! Good GOD man! Why did you post this nightmare?! Level 5 is ridiculous!

I've figured that 1*8-1-5=2 but you'd have to jumped 1 twice and somehow shoot 8 in between jumps?!

YARRRGGGHHH!!!! FOO!

If someone else figured out the smart way to do this please help!!!!

qunux said...

samo for me, lvl 5 seems crazy.
can't see how to pick up the figure in the right order ...
if you go down to catch the 8 you're stuck but this 8 seems impossible to reach form the top platform (furthermore without killing the 1) !!

kaila said...

OK - in level 4 I am a 9 but I can't find the end line...

Anonymous said...

not workink ??? !!!!

Anonymous said...

hey jaypee
guess thats why its called number "ninjas". you can get behind a number when its back is turned to you (you wont be spotted until it faces you, if you jump away right when the exclamation mark shows you'll be safe but it will be pacing faster for a little bit then go back to normal) then jump and shoot towards where 8 is and hopefully you'll hit it without having to go down there.

JAYPEE said...

lol, hey anon (or is it Peter trying to save face on his game?).

the only choice IS to try shooting 8 at random because going down there means a restart... also, the time between "!" and "spotted" is miniscule anyways.... the difficulty is WAYYYY too ramped for the 5th level in...

any pointers on level 5? ;)

qwerty said...

maybe there are hidden or secret controls, like to shoot farther or jump higher
the ducking doesn't seem to be useful anywhere yet

noni mouse said...

Has Bart played this game?
I would like to know his opinion on it and if he has passed lvl 5?

Yogi said...

If you restart enough times on level 5 you can see a number 8 with a blue bandana just before you start.

not a # ninja said...

i was messing with the "c" control, looking around at the surroundings, and it got stuck. Then I ended up with a floating number 1.

not a # ninja said...

That happened on the 5th level. I forgot to mention that.

JAYPEE said...

i got it! time!

at 17 seconds, the 1 should be hitting the corner and turning. jump across, jump straight up, and launch a *... you should hit 8. then quickly jump back across and hit 1 with a - safely across the gap... :)

use "c" to look around and watch the clock....

ninja??? nope! crafty? yup! ;)

shame on me for killing so much time though... lol

JAYPEE said...

LOLOLOLOL, and then level 6 won't even load! Even after I passed 5 again!

mwahahahaha, y'all have a good night... I done with the insanity.

You stay sexy San Diego!

Fitz said...

Big grey box with a white rectangle.

Great game.

Anonymous said...

Are the people who got the game to work using IE or some other browser? Even with refreshing, it's still just an empty white rectangle for me...

thisse said...

Only browser I can get it to work in is Firefox, so give that a shot!

Anonymous said...

so how exactly do i pass level 2????

Bart said...

Seems like this game is only working in Firefox indeed ...

Bobette said...

definately, Bart. Oh, well. Get enough math every day, anyway. :P

Florencia said...

hey Bart, i really want to play itt!!! please find a way to post it and that it works everywhere!

Susanne said...

Download the (free) navigator "Mozilla Firefox" and use that instead of explorer. Works like a charm!

Someone(haha) said...

Grr it wont load! I only have an empty progress bar. What do you do? So frusterating! I wanna play!
>:O

Anonymous said...

bart can you remove JAYPEE's last coment so the parents/10 year olds and under can get back on the site?

JAYPEE said...

Oh wow.... Hey "Anon", Take a closer look at some of the games posted on this site...

Children and those with easily offended sensibilities probably shouldn't be on this site anyway...

LOTS worse out there than the word "sexy"...

Anonymous said...

Too hard for me...

No fun in this game.

Thijs said...

I got past level 5 but now the next level isn't loading. A shame, the idea for this game is REALLY good. But the maker somehow managed to absolutely ruin it.

I said...

@ Thijs:

did you pass lvl5 just like JayPee did? or is there another way?

Thijs said...

@ I

No, I used JayPee's advice, it's the only way and you'll need a few tries to get the timing right. I jumped right after 16 seconds I think.

Anonymous said...

i passed to lvl 13 and i'm stucked.
Someone help in this?

Anonymous said...

i beat the game. 4/5

Withnail said...

I'm stuck on level nine. Any help?

Brognor said...

I am stick at level 11 :( Why the hell it's so hard, cant get an 8 when I got 6 and a - a / and a X and 3, 2 and 1 ... I found a way to grab -, / and X without alerting the numbers but I dont know which one to hit first, second and third and with which attack :(

Anonymous said...

@ Brognor

the solution for lvl 11 is: 6/2*3-1=8

Anonymous said...

Does anyone know how to get past lvl 14? I can't find a way to kill nr 3 (the - doesn't want to hit it)

Anonymous said...

Never mind, got it :)

Anonymous said...

How pass lvl 14 ?? pls

Anonymous said...

Lvl 14 solution : 1*8-5*3-2=7

to shoot nr 3, don't shoot from the ground or mid air, something in between. I know that sounds hard, but that's how I got it. It will need some practice though. Hope that helps :)
