One of, if not the rarest educational game on Atari 2600 has been conquered. I'd like to thank the academy for this opportunity.
In all seriousness, nothing to this one. Barring future manipulations, the fastest each question can possibly go by is 300 frames. All of my directional inputs were just to make it entertaining to the audience because of that.

Samsara: Claiming for judging.
Samsara: It still shocks me to this day that this game received a sequel almost a decade later, honestly. There was a really drastic tonal shift in it, too! Like, this is a cute game about simple math, and the sequel is an existential horror movie? I dunno. Maybe I just disagree with Eli being replaced with his brother, Jacob.
This was actually interesting watching the encode before loading it up in emulator and playing around with it, because it doesn't actually show off how the game operates that well. The questions on screen are all the previous question that was answered frame perfectly before the little ladder animation. I suppose there could have been a small kerfuffle over triviality here if it worked exactly as shown, but that could have easily been derailed by the revelation that this game sells for thousands due to its rarity.
...Yeah, I don't know what else to say about this. It's a lot like me: Cute, simple, and expensive. Accepting!

despoa: Processing...
