User guide

The number to find is located on the top screen and marked as nous cherchons (meaning we are looking for in English) in front.

The drawn plates are at the top of the bottom screen.

There are then calculation zones on which you have to put the plates to be calculated (all thanks to the stylus). To change the calculation operators you have to click on them (after 4 times you come back to the +). And to calculate, you have to select the box furthest to the right.

Tap the button Raz to cancel all the operations in progress, and tap the button Val to validate the result (or to abort).

You can change the difficulty settings in the options menu:

  • Easy - Calculations are done automatically and a solution is always possible (even if it is twisted).
  • Medium - Calculations are always done automatically but the draw is random.
  • Hard - Calculation is to be done head-on with a random draw (original mode of the TV game).

Since version 0.4, it is possible to enter your own draw (number to find and plate).
