Fiendish puzzle game meets cheesy action flick in this new iOS title from Squeezebox Software – with 50% of profits going to charity.
16 MAY 2018 — Great news! A professor has finally found the cure to cancer! Slightly less-good news: she’s immediately been assassinated by terrorists, hell-bent on claiming the cure for nefarious means.
Such is the setup to Zero/Sum, an inventive new iOS game that fuses fiendish puzzle gameplay with a live-action, B-movie story. In her dying moments, the professor is able to erase valuable parts of her equations. As her student, Sarah, it falls to you to re-solve the puzzle, and re-cure cancer, before the terrorists do.
In addition to the main story mode, Zero/Sum also features a time trial mode – allowing players to try beating their best score on a random puzzle – and Daily Challenge, which adds 10 new puzzles every single day! What’s more, creator Sean Kearney will be donating 50% of the proceeds to charity – with the money to be split between The American Cancer Society and The COPD Foundation.
Despite the ever-expanding content, Zero/Sum retails for one fixed cost: $1.99, with no micro-transactions, and no paid add-on packs. And in buying a game about curing cancer, you really can contribute to curing cancer, among other good causes!
Zero/Sum is a cinematic puzzle game for iOS, which combines fiendish puzzle gameplay with an over-the-top B-movie storyline complete with live action cutscenes.
On the eve of discovering a mathematical cure for cancer, your professor is murdered by terrorists in search of the cure. In her dying moments, the professor is able to erase valuable parts of the equations. Can you re-solve the puzzle, and re-cure cancer, before the terrorists do?
– Challenging number puzzles: solve the equations and cure cancer!
– Hours of action movie narrative: it’s a bit like sudoku with a story!
– Time trial mode: beat your best times on random puzzles!
– Daily Challenge mode adds 10 new puzzles every day!
– One price, forever: no microtransactions or paid add-on packs!
