Deserving of one of the fewer than five 5 star app ratings that I have ever given, HRM is a brilliant game for teaching logical, algorithmic thinking. In a series of fun exercises of gradually increasing difficulty, the player must transfer numbers from the office in-tray to the out-tray, performing operations on them along the way. As one progresses through the exercises, new operations and features are introduced that make it possible to write more powerful programs. One can store numbers, increment or decrement them, and even use simple arrays. The player may not realise it at the time, but he/she is effectively learning simple assembly language programming. The exercises are made significantly harder by the presence of challenges to optimise the solution for program size and number of executed operations. Very often, these goals are mutually exclusive and will require two separate solutions to achieve. In short, this is a brilliant game that will provide hours of pleasure; and not a few of genuine frustration and head-scratching, as one strives to shave the last few operations off a program to reach the target optimum.
Awesome! I already played and finished the game on my PC. Finally I can solve and optimize the puzzles on my phone too. Are you planning to release further levels or even a sequel of the game?
Really fun but... It's extremely fun and well made except... I feel like it needs hints... I'm on level 13 and I have absolutely no idea how to beat it... it tells me what to do but doing it correctly without a hint is insanely hard... plus, it tells you "discard all that don't match" you can't discard anything! :( at least give me better instructions... please...
Thanks, everyone! We believe every issue mentioned here in older reviews has been fixed now. Happy programming!
Amazing game! This was an amazing game, very entertaining! I hope you're going to make a sequel. Thank you very much!
Right up there along side TIS-100. Great game - keep up the good work.
Fixed gauss shaders for low end hardware
Fixed x86 alignment issue.
Fixed gfx init issue.
A brain-racking game about bathroom breaks, screwdrivers and nuclear explosions.
