Ideas for a sequel?

So I've decided to make a sequel to pressured and I need your help.

If you have any ideas that you think would make pressured a better game please let me know.

I've started a forum post here:

Any feedback would be awesome :)

Thanks,

Time to recommend that sweet little game called Pressured!
I bought it out of pure curiosity, because of its surprisingly cheap price, and because I'm hell of a Puzzle-game lover!

Now, that may sound weird, but my biggest peeves in videogames, are mathemathics, skill/quickthinking, and TIMERS. Since that game was based on all those mechanics at the same time, I definitly had to give it a try, because I'm a man, I CAN DO IT!

Gameplay
Of course I'm kidding, Pressured is much more entertaining than a plain timed arithmetic simulation. It has something really addictive, which I couldn't describe, but it sure has that little thing that makes you go : "Let's see what I could play today... Perhaps that game? But hey, first let's play Pressured and beat my recooord!"

Indeed, Pressured isn't the kind of game on which you would spend 2 straight hours (Or, who knows? If you're such a fan like that!), but it's the perfect game to kill some time, and play now and then, once or twice a day, just to relax and get better.

Basically, you're given a target, and you must click on the figures that appear on the screen to reach that target through additions. But the clever part, is that you cannot use the same LAST figure twice in a row! For instance, if your target is 10, you can either click 5+5, then 4+3+1+1+1, but then you won't be able to do 9+1, since you already finished your previous sum with a 1. It requires constantly finding new additions to do.

In my case, I mostly use the game for its intellectual aspect, as I'm really terrible with mathematics, and even more with mental arithmetic. I found Pressured being amazingly useful to train that ability, while having fun.

Music
The music isn't really intrusive, hopefully since it would be annoying for a game that requires concentration!
That being said, I took some time to listen carefully to the main tune, and, from a musician point of view, I really enjoyed it! It feels like the game has some secret to reveal, something mysterious, just like the game itself.

Content
As a randomly-generated game, there's no such thing as "content", "lenght" or "replay value". You play whenever you want to, and that's it! One thing I shoud mention, is the presence of poetry bits, as you unlock the ingame achievements.

Some of these achievements are easy, some require a lot of determination. When you finally achieve them, you're given some fragments of wise mathematic-related poetry, and it's a real pleasure to be rewarded with them as you get better with the game! Will you be skilled enough to unlock them all?

Finally, I would like to mention the fact I strongly recommend the game to support Paul Marrable, for being a kind-hearted, responsive and caring person towards his game's playerbase, as well as a promising videogame developer; and these reasons themselves are really worth recommending Pressured.
I will eagerly be looking forward to acquiring his future games!

Pressured - 17/20

i can't read half of what's in this monstrosity. it's supposed to be about quickly identifying numbers and i can't read the most important ones because the developer is apparently a man stuck in the year 1997 designing angelfire websites with illegible fonts and interface elements that he thinks he looks stylish

Game sucks. Bad music. Bad choice of lettering and poorly filled in letters and numbers to boot. Crappy background. Plot is unintelligable at the start and good luck getting to any more of it.

So the over all feel of the game is. Anoyed by music, squinting at numbers you can't quite see; all while the game quickly pressures you out of time. It's the opposite of fun.

I was hoping for a math-related puzzle game.

I got an extremely fast-paced arithmetic exercise that would not have been out of place in my second-grade math class. While I suppose this does technically fit the above criteria, it was certainly not what I was looking for.

I really like this game! It has a lot of negative reviews because I think people coudn't beat the game. It requires you to think and uses simplistic math and logic in your choices while working against the clock. It takes more than a couple times through the sequence to get the hang of it. It has 14 unlocks and 3 different modes of play. I unlocked normal mode so far and only have 2 unlocks so far and haven't unlocked the story mode. It's on steam sale right now for 29 cents and has trading cards! See if you can beat it!

Pressured is some sort of math game in which you have to click numbers on screens which change rapidly, if that makes any sense. So if your goal is 13 you have to press the screen with 5 and then maybe a 7 and then a screen with 1. Some screens carry bombs or x2.... you get the picture, I hope. I suppose the game is good for people who like to become fast in math but for a game I think the idea is a bit too simple.

For this price, I cannot complain much when the idea of the game has been satisfactorily presented. And this game is fine. The font is a bit odd as well as the theme color. but it's still tolerable. One flaw concerning the gameplay is that when you add up to just 1 less than the target with your sum (e.g. target is 45, you have already 44), there is nearly NO number 1 appearing (I have to say 'nearly' coz I've not been playing long). As the clock ticking, considering the fact that redoing the whole adding up would cause even more time, I normally decide to wait. And the 1 NEVER shows up!

Solid proof that when you are pressured, you are suddenly good at math.
So carry on doing your caffeine-induced homework frenzy at 3AM the morning on the day it is due.

Pressured is are simple but "brain wake up" game.
I recommend.

Pressured - простая игра-головоломка.
Отлично подходит для того, чтобы размять мозги.
Рекомендую.

This is one of the most frustrating puzzle games I have ever played. The numbers you need to select to sum up to reach a given amount move so fast that, even on easy, you'll find some hell of a challenge.

For 90% off, it was not a big deal, as the game has cards that, once sold, pratically paid the game. I had to turn off the in-game music after a couple of seconds (very annoying), and got tired of it fast, so I uninstalled it after getting the 3 cards. Buy only if you want a real challenge, don't mind the lack of polish, and don't expect a lot.

This game definitely apppeals to the mathematician in me, and while I have said I recommend this game, I only do so to those who have: a logical mind, a mathematical mind, a person who enjoys puzzles or a person who wants to improve any of the previous points.

This game is interesting in a puzzle sense, but it is not remotely aesthetically pleasing or even polished. A better version of this game could be programmed in your browser, look better, and not cost any money.
You click cards to total to a predefined sum, gaining points by reaching that sum and not going over. It is not uncommon, however, for the game simply to not give you that card you need to reach the sum. For example, if the sum is 10, and you currently have 9 points, there will be no 1-point cards.

It's a neat concept for a game, but you're better off buying pretty much any other puzzle game. If you're going to spend money on a Steam puzzler, get one with decent graphics that doesn't look like it was made in some high school intro-to-programming class.

Pressured, as far as i can tell is simply this: it's a dynamic sodoku puzzle in which the numbers are always changing. You add them to a sum by clicking on the numbers you need, but heres the catch: there's a dynamic time limit... one that changes with every mistake and success you make and it takes the form of a "pressure bar" which is on the right side. Very steampunk. The unlockables in this game consist of 15 bits of story and the two difficulties beyond easy. I would reccomend this game if you like having to do split second addition problems or you are just looking for a frustrating puzzle game.
