The Factory is a simple and dynamic game which involves one to match the number on various gears with the number on the player-controlled paddle. Although this seems fairly simple, the difficulty greatly increases every 5 levels. I have to say, the first 5 levels nearly made me fall asleep, but once I reached level 6, it dramatically became a more interesting game.
Initially, when you begin the game, there will be gears that appear with numbers 2, 3, 5 or 7. The aim of the game is to match the number on the gear with the number on the paddle. The paddle can be controlled by clicking on the mouse, using the ‘left’ and ‘right’ keys, or selected directly by pressing the numbers ‘1′ through ‘4′. I recommend using the number keys because you’ll be able to change the numbers on the paddle instantly.
As the levels increase, larger numbers will appear on the gears and if the number divisible by the number on the paddle, the gear gets smaller and you earn points. When a gear reaches 1, it can’t be divided any more, so it is safe to discard the gear. If you happen to drop some gears, you lose energy and the game ceases when the energy tumbles to 0.
Graphically the game is decent, although it could do with some revamping. There is also no plot to the game, so it felt like I was wasting my time playing a game of number matching. Additionally, I would have liked to see more features, which could be as simple as an upgrade element or even different maps.
I will rate this game 5 out of 10. Overall, the game was interesting up to a certain extent. I wouldn’t play this game more then 2 times as the game is lacking in its visual effect, plot and imagination. I’m sure this game could be perked into a better and funner game if the creator put in more effort in the design.
