Time Trial mode

Time Trials are a fun way to practice doing problems quickly and accurately for a high score.

You can start a Time Trial here: Time Trials

Here is how it works:

  • Start with a difficulty level. They go from 30 kyu all the way up to 6 dan. (Anything further would be too hard!)
  • You get 4 lives to start. Each time you make a mistake, you lose a life.
  • You have 1 minute to complete a problem. If you run out of time, you lose a life.
  • When all lives are gone, your Time Trial is over, and your score is how many problems you have solved.
  • If you beat all the problems on a level, you win that level!

After the Time Trial is over, you will see a breakdown of all the problems you attempted, and you can go back and review if you wish.

Time Trial problems are all life and death and tesuji problems. Nothing in other categories, and no problems where you need to read instructions to know what to do.

In your Settings you can control your privacy around who can view your Time Trial results.
