Rules of the game 
Matego is played by two players. Each player has an army
with numbers. One player plays at the left side of the
screen and the other player plays at the right side of
the screen.
If you play with another player, you must try to
eliminate all the numbers in the army of your opponent
before he or she has eliminated all of your own numbers.
If you play against the computer, the goal is to
eliminate as much as numbers as you can and to do this as
fast as possible.
You play in the following way:
Move the cursor up or down
Move the cursor, the small blue or red square, to the
line where you want to attack.
Down under in the playscreen (in the shields) you'll see
the keys that you can use. If you play, for example, at
the right side and you use the standard keys, you move up
with:[]
and down with: [] (the up and down cursor keys).
Make a sum with the
numbers of your opponent
Then you make the number in the cursor equal to the sum
of the first two numbers "at the
other side"; as in the example below.
The standard key to increase the number in the cursor is:
[ ]
and to decrease the number: [] (the right and left cursor keys).
Fire when the sum is right
If the sum is correct you "fire". The standard
key for the player at the right side for this is: [Enter].
The two numbers at the other side will then disappear.
After that you move the cursor again up or down to
another line, you make the number in
the cursor again equal to the sum of the two numbers at
the other side and you fire. In this
way you continue till you have destroyed all the numbers
of your opponent.
Do not make any error!
Take care... If you fire and the sum isn't right, then
two numbers of your own army will disappear!
Calculate as fast as
possible!
Also you must play as fast as possible, because in the
meanwhile your
opponent is attacking your numberarmy!
Winning
You win when your opponent has no more numbers left in
his army. If you play against the
computer you will then proceed to a higher level.
High Scores 
At last the computer will be so smart and so fast that it
will be not possible any longer to manage. But if you
have calculated rapidly, surely you will be able to write
your name into the High Scores! Your score will then be
calculated depending of the amount of numbers you have
destroyed, the time you have been playing and the level
you have reached.
An experienced player will get the highest score by
starting to play in a relatively high level and is
therefore not obliged to work through all the lower
levels.
Extra rules of the game
1) If a player only has left one horizontal
line with numbers, then he or she will not be able to do
anything any longer and has actually already lost. This
rule avoids a standstill of the game, because without
this rule a player could all the time increase and
decrease his last number and the other player could never
manage to destroy it.
2) Another
rule that resembles this: If you move your cursor to a
line where already the cursor of your opponent is placed,
then you will not be able to do anything in this line.
This is also to avoid a standstill of the game, because
without this rule a player could also all the time
increase and decrease the number in the line where the
other player tries to attack and the game would not
proceed.
Subtractions,
multiplications and divisions are also possible
Experienced players can also use some more arithmetic
operations.
Add all the numbers:
Divide the first and the second number:
Multiply the first and the second number:
Subtract the first and the second number:
Regrouping of the
numberarmies
When both players cannot attack any longer while they
still have a numberarmy, then their
numbers will be moved in such a way that after that the
game can proceed.
