Factor Tractor

By Steve McCrea

Genre: Arcade Math
Do you like Maths?  Do you like Tractors?  Do you like fast paced arcade fun?

If you answered yes to the first two questions then FACTOR TRACTOR is the game for you!  This rather nice intro screen tells us what the game is about, and sports possibly the best rendering of a tractor using UDGs ever (in fact – if readers want to email me more UDG DATA of Tractors I’ll post them in the blog and end of year digest).

Boffins among you will sail through this game (or whatever the word is for a tractor sailing – chug I suppose) but as a bit of a duffer I struggled.  I remember numbers like 54 and 63, and that two small numbers can be multiplied together to make them, but under the pressure of a tractor race I fall apart and fail.
Factor Tractor is crap, but you’ll feel ashamed when you find yourself actually getting into the race.

Tipshack: Learn your times tables!

HACKPACK: remove the IF AND before the LET in line 160, and you’ll have hexane in the fuel tank.
