# BIDMAS

by goatsoup

## Description

If you've played the demo before this is now the proper version.

The 'maths checker' is massively improved so the type of errors reported in the comments should be fixed.
Also, now with 20 levels and autosave after each level.

How do I get through level 7? Too many trial and error.

Great game, I couldn't imagine the programming it took!

I do believe that BIDMAS is the British(or proper English if you will) equivalent to PEMDAS ;-)

13 6-1 = 9x2 doesn't seem to work, either.

Andy, actually those two answers you have given are not correct. Part of the point of the game is about order of operations - multiply and divide are calculated before addition and subtraction. So:
(2x2) plus 8/4 is actually 6 (not 3).

ps Is BIDMAS (the name of the game) a term everyone understands or is it a British thing? Try googling it.

Level 5 is bugged though.. (2x2) 8/3=4 is correct but it didn't let me do it...

Also (2x2) 8/4=3 is right as well but didn't let me do it..

Whoops. Most of the levels have more than one answer and my answer checking isn't very sophisticated. It is the main thing I want to work on.
Thanks for reporting that bug - it'll help me improve it.

I think theres more than one solution for level 4. The one I tried 3x6 2-11=9 didn't work even though it's correct.

Thanks for the feedback. I didn't want the boxes to snap because I wanted it to be like sliding tiles on a desk. Rather the game should cope with tiles that aren't exactly aligned.
Luxon5 - you are correct, it just sorts the tiles on x-coord.
