The owl drone in action

The owl drone in action. It will provide air cover by fighting other drones so that you can carry out the work effectively.

If you also place a static minigun in a central point you will have a good defense for a precious time. And don´t forget the power of the Combat Mech when you need it.

Sandra and the novel behind the game

Sandra is the main character of the novel that follows the events of Math Combat Challenge. She is also the protagonist of a series of eight science fiction books.
 
In future versions of the game she will become more prominent. Here we see her at Titan spaceport, waiting for her departure.

Help drone: it´s your turn to choose

One the most important things when giving options to a player in a game, besides difficulty levels, are the help options. Do you want help? Or you want to go on your own?

We’ve created the game so both options are possible. Just activate the help drone, and it will tell you what to do at anytime. Deactivate the drone, and explore yourself the game. It’s up to you to choose.

Videotutorial #2: Surface combat

Videotutorial #1: main features and menus.

In this second tutorial we explain how to combat in surface arenas. This tutorial has been recorded in the Stadium Arena.

The Stadium forces the player to work quickly solving math problems while trying to survive. Other arenas like the Titan Arena are bigger and with new elements like water, interiors, etc. The third and last tutorial will show the space combat with the starfighter.

 

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.
