Who knew that games that are heavily centered around working out math problems could at least be a bit interesting? While the initial levels of TRIOS remain very simple, they are effective at warming you up to what’s coming when more and more elements are added with every group of levels to amp things up. The principle, no matter how many elements are involved, remains consistent: Your goal is to arrive at the number shown in the background using all of the numbers and operators you’ve been given. Working on two numbers and a key operator at a time you’ll need to work your way through to get to the desired result… which does take some planning as things go on in particular. Much more cerebral and exciting, it’s at least a fresh take on what you’d normally consider an educational title, and its presentation and great tracks at least make for a pleasant experience as you progressively get more frustrated with the challenges put before you.
