The player must find the "password" to the tower by solving math problems which are presented.  The password consists of eight digits, and the questions specify which digits the answer should go in.  Once each of the digits of the password are entered correctly the tower can be entered.

=====Tower Level=====

=====Tower Level=====
Line 32: Line 37:
This is a platforming styled level where the main objective is to control the hero to climb up a tower.  The hero is holding a number which is modified by hitting operations falling on the screen ("x2", "+5", etc), and each floor of the tower contains one or more "gaps" for the hero to travel through with numbers or mathematical problems on either side.  You can only travel upwards when the number the hero is controlling is between the two values on either side of the gaps.
