In a single round of Equator, both players are given an array of numbers and mathematical symbols. Using what they have been given, each player must independently create a math calculation which both result in the same answer. For example, one player creates "7 - 4", and the other creates "1 + 2". Because these both result in 3, the players are able to move onto the next round.
Players will usually need to communicate to proceed, reading out numbers and sharing ideas to reach an agreeable solution - and later on they can even swap numbers from each side of the planet! Social collaboration like this helps learning stick.
Equator rewards complexity, and using more maths symbols and bigger numbers results in players being rewarded with more "Leaves", the game's own native currency. Leaves are used to buy hats and costumes to dress up the player characters, with more extravagant costumes costing more leaves to buy.
Equator has hit the App Store for £2.49/$3.99, at 30% off of the normal price for a limited time only! Get this number-swapping, maths-matching multiplayer game for two while it's on the cheap! Download it here.
Combine your problem solving skills in this thoughtful game for players aged 5-105! Ideal for playing with friends, Equator stars the plucky North and South, who must use the fruits of the Globe to survive the whole year round. Players must use their numbers and symbols to create sums which have the same answer, with each pair of equal equations forwarding the season onwards.
Each season brings new challenges: addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and even the fabled Banana Brackets. Using bigger numbers and making more complex sums rewards players with more Leaves, which are used to buy hats and costumes for North and South. Whether it’s keeping warm in the bitter cold of Winter with the Russian Fur Hat or finding a sophisticated look with the Top Hat & Monocle, the Hat Store offers up hats for any personality!
