The video below shows the new free 6th Arena (with no enemies).

Have a nice Math Day!

Release date coming soon

We’re working hard to finish the game and including statistics and achievements for Steam. We didn’t plan to include these elements in Steam in the first place, but while Steam is working to approve the game, we’ve thought it can be very important to players. You can see some of the achievements here.

We’ll inform about the release date very soon, thanks for your patience!

In future versions of the game she will become more prominent. Here we see her at Titan spaceport, waiting for her departure.

Final version of the configuration menu

Final configuration screen for Math Combat Challenge. Among other things now you can choose between decimal point or decimal comma. It´s a detail, but it´s important.

Everything is explained in the online manual on the web (english version and spanish version).

Cloaking device in action

The cloaking device is an experimental system that allows to hide your starship from enemy radars. You can use it to avoid combat with other ships, or to escape if necessary.

But be careful: the system drains a lot of energy, and is unstable. It´s a last option whenever possible.

Keyboard map for first person areas

This is the keyboard map for the first person scenarios. Remember that the control can also be carried out with an XBox or Playstation pad, as indicated in the manual. The scenarios in first person can be managed with keyboard, but the ones in the space are recommended for a pad.

Minigun and Combat Mech in action

In terrestrial scenarios, you can count on the help of a dron, a minigun weapon, and a combat mech. These two last elements can be seen here in action. The small screen allows you to see the area from the perspective of the mech. They will be very useful to be able to finish the missions with success.

Underwater in the Titan Arena

The third Arena of Math Combat Challenge, the Titan Arena, will be available when the player finishes the previous arenas, or when he or she wins three times the Stadium Arena. And this third Arena will have its own surprises. One of them will be the underwater combat. Well, not exactly underwater, because the lakes in Titan are not full of water, but hydrocarbons.

The lake Kraken in titan is as big as the Caspian Sea, and the player will have to go down to find some of the math operations needed to finish the Arena. And the oxygen will deplete quickly while submerged. There will be a way to get new oxygen of course, but we´ll talk about that the next day…
