Storyline

MAFH™ follows the story of Arith, a determined young researcher dedicated to finding all of the world’s best hidden secrets. One day she stumbled across a piece of blank papyrus during the time she spent studying in Egypt on a dig site. She quickly brought it to her best friend and colleague, Lytic. They were determined to find out more about this strange paper, but the two could not unearth its secrets in such a short time. To them, it was just a blank piece of ancient material.
Two months later, the dig ever deeper into the earth, Arith noticed a faint glow emanating from a random pile of dirt. “What’s that over there?” she asked Lytic, who was standing nearby with his shovel. Digging it out, Lytic noticed that it was a small amulet. It let off the strangest beautiful teal glow. “Strange,” he remarked. Lytic stared deep into the light, his eyes widening as if in a trance. "Just what are you?" he questioned. The glow got even brighter and then went dim again. Now the amulet appeared to be as plain as any other stone. Confused, the two left the site to turn in for the night.
Upon bringing this find to back to their living quarters, Lytic tossed it lightly on the table. It landed near the old blank papyrus that Arith had found months earlier. The amulet began to glow again. This time, the papyrus wasn't blank. The light appeared to be the key and filled the papyrus with teal characters and symbols. The two stared amazed at the sight. Nothing made sense. It was no language they’d ever come across before. Upon closer inspection, only one thing was certain. The image of a giant pile of treasure, larger than anything you could imagine. The other familiar image was of a human mind with mathematical symbols surrounding it. Apparently, those who desired this treasure must be intelligent and versed in the ways of mathematics. There was one other hint on the old Egyptian paper. It was extremely cold to the touch. The two agreed this meant it must be somewhere on Earth in a very cold or dark place. At last, a massive treasure hunt was underway.
Four days after, Arith and Lytic found themselves in a strange place face to face with a mysterious and ancient building, relics in hand. “You wait here. I’ll go take a look around,” Arith told Lytic. “Okay. Good luck.”
Arith entered the chilly, dark structure alone; unaware of what lay in wait…


Game Progression

Each dungeon will introduce a distinct mathematical concept, and each dungeon will be comprised of several levels of increasing difficulty.
At the beginning of each level the player will face the entrance of the dungeon. In each room if there are no enemies left, the player will have a decision as to where to go next based on what room in the dungeon they are in and how many exit doors they have available.
As the player moves through the dungeon, they will face enemies which they will have to fight by solving math problems. If the player answers enough questions correctly in a battle, they will win the battle. However, if they continue to answer questions wrong, they will be damaged and eventually die. When the player dies, they will be given the option to quit to the main screen or to restart the level. Once the player answers enough math problems correctly or defeats enough enemies, they will be granted access to the dungeons key, which will let them move on to the next level.
When the player reaches the end of most dungeons, they will encounter a boss that will confront them with numerous timed math problems to ensure mastery of the dungeon's concepts.
A player's game is completed when they find all of the fortune hidden within each dungeon level and defeats the main game boss.

Cutscene III – Crash Course (Room Changing)
When the explanations are over, walk into the north room to continue.

After the explanation ends, you will notice the game’s first weapon item sitting in the room. An explanation of equipping weapons and armor will occur.
Cutscene VIII – Crash Course (Equipment)
Having your newly acquired weapon equipped, enter the west room first.


→ The first thing you will notice about room 4 is an odd and hostile creature dancing about. You will automatically be engaged in your first combat, along with an explanation of how to. Follow the prompts and defeat the enemy.
Cutscene IX – Crash Course (Combat)
Continue to the north for the next room.

Cutscene XII – Crash Course (Hidden Secrets)
Continue to the north.


FMV III – On the Right Track
→ There’s not much going on in room 8 aside from an FMV sequence, but take a deeper look around with your amulet before continuing to the next room to the west.


→ Room 9 may look familiar, but these enemies are just the welcoming party. Defeat them both to progress. Exit via the west room.


→ The final room, number 10, will explain how levels are completed and how to obtain and use level keys.
Cutscene XIII – Crash Course (Dungeon Keys)
Cutscene XIV – Crash Course (Dungeon Completion)
After obtaining your first level access key, exit the dungeon via the north door to enter dungeon 2.


Level 2 - Transference Center

→ This dungeon is filled with more choices of movement than the first. Upon entering the first room, you will notice a puzzle door to the west and another unlocked door to the north. The player has a choice of which door to choose, but for now let’s take the easy road and head north.


→ Once in room 2, you will yet again be presented with another two doors. The north door has another puzzle and the west door is open and looking friendly. Snag the potion on the ground and use that amulet of yours to check around. Then head west.


→ In the third room of this dungeon, the player will have to fight an enemy. Conquer it as you’ve done before and head south. Note that there’s a door to the north as well.


→ Room four grants you access to a key. Solving that first puzzle would have given you a direct line to this room, but it’s still good to explore as much as possible. Solve the puzzle and get back into the first room.
Now head north by one room and solve the puzzle on the north door.


→ This is a great example of why exploring is the smart thing to do. Solving this puzzle and heading north into room 5 will find you in possession of some new armor. You will be happy later on. Ignore the lock on the eastern door for now and head back out the south door.
Travel west. This time, enter the northern door.
Cutscene XV – Crash Course (Currency)


→ Entering room 6, you notice a treasure chest filled with shiny gold pieces, henceforth known and referred to as Akhal. Grab the 200* and listen to the explanation introducing you to your in-game currency system. Head west.


→ A tougher battle ensues in room 7 with two enemies to defeat. Do this. Before exiting this room, be sure to look around with your amulet. Unlock the northern door and get ready.
Cutscene XVI – Crash Course (Boss Battles)


→ Room 8 features your very first full-on boss fight! Bosses are much tougher than your standard enemies and require more finesse to defeat. Always think strategy when coming into a boss fight and remember what you have learned up until that point. A tutorial will occur, so don’t be too afraid. Defeat this beast and head east.


→ More keys! Pick them up, no surprise one of them is a dungeon key. Exit room 9 the way you came and find your way back to the room where we collected your new armor. (Told you it was a good idea to explore)
Do this by leaving room 9 and travelling west, south, east, south, east, and north. This time, use that key and gain entry to the east room.
Cutscene XVII – Crash Course (Puzzle Rooms)


→ This is your first puzzle room challenge, all the way in room 10! You must solve the puzzle presented in puzzle rooms before the timer click away to zero. Read the explanation for how this all works and then solve away! Now exit via the north door.
FMV IV – Almost Isn’t Good Enough


→ The exit to dungeon 2 is in sight. However, first you notice a strange being lingering about the room. It’s a merchant! This guy has no allegiance to anyone but money. At least you can now purchase or sell items or other pick-ups during that you find during the game. Remain on your toes, as he is apt to cheat you out of a few coins here or there. It’s up to you to stop this. After learning about shopping via the cutscene, you may now exit the dungeon and continue your journey.
