##  Full title

For what it's worth, the full title of the game is actually closer to "Math Kickers featuring the Algebros" TTGJake 16:19, 31 July 2008 (UTC)

##  Score

Referring to the score in this image, 666=coincidence? or not? Homestar-Winner (talk) 23:54, 7 September 2008 (UTC)

A coincidence. I hope. Strongkinghomsarsmith 14:49, 20 October 2008 (UTC)

##  Freeze

Am I the only one for whom this game stops responding to any directional or attack movements after a while, only letting you pause or quit?

Yeah, I got the same thing. And I had 1700 points, too! >.< CompGrl323 (talk · edits) 04:37, 26 September 2008 (UTC)
Stupid thing freezes on me every time I miss a ninja! How am I supposed to get 2,000!? --Homestar Tiger (HRFWiki)
So what can we do? The Polar Coordinates is hard to do. --Homestar Tiger (HRFWiki)
Get better at the game; don't miss and do the combos better. SuperfieldCreditUnion
Anyone ELSE? --Homestar Tiger (You know where)
I discovered that I only ran into this problem when I set the game resolution to 1024x768. Resetting the game resolution back to 640x480 fixed the problem entirely for me. --Blu Aardvark (talk) (edits) 08:29, 19 November 2008 (UTC)

##  Stupid Overused Internet Cliche

Is that quote a reference to the Angry Video Game Nerd and the many knockoffs he's inspired? BBG 00:58, 17 September 2008 (UTC)

Or it's a reference to, y'know, ninjas being a stupid overused internet cliche? --Jay (Talk) 01:11, 17 September 2008 (UTC)

##  0.7 times more people who can't do proper math

this Fact has been added and removed many times. Anyway, my take on it is that it says "0.7 times MORE fun" meaning it's the same amount PLUS 0.7, making it 1.7. That IS how it works. MORE fun. It SAYS that. — Defender1031Talk 14:38, 20 October 2008 (UTC)

--You've violated the three revert rule. Reported.
As I've already said, we don't have that rule here. That's a Wikipedia thing. Heimstern Läufer 14:49, 20 October 2008 (UTC)
Further, you ALSO reverted rather than taking it to talk. Now, can we please address the issue at hand? — Defender1031Talk 14:54, 20 October 2008 (UTC)
It would be more amusing if they had said ".7 times as fun", but nope, they said "more", so DeFender is right. --Jay (Talk) 18:26, 20 October 2008 (UTC)

##  Ryu

Seems like the fact tying "Ryu" to Street Fighter keeps getting deleted and re-added, and I have to say, I agree that it's probably not a reference. Not only is it the Japanese word for "Dragon", and one which is a *very* common stereotypical Japanese video game/anime name, but I can think of two other prominent characters in video games named Ryu right off the top of my head: the heroes of all five Breath of Fire games, and the hero of the Ninja Gaiden series, Ryu Hayabusa. So, the claim that "none of the other examples are from video games" is, well, dead wrong.
