My Reactions

  • I don’t know of any other game that helped with science. I know back in the day you could allow your PlayStation to help calculate science stuff when you didn’t use it.
  • Interesting that the Par score is actually the algorithm trying to solve the puzzle and beating that goal is actually exceeding scientists.
