Mwhiz! is a two-player educational game in which the players must evaluate an arithmetic function on the screen to be true or false. Both players have a button for true and false and earn points depending on how quickly they gave the right answer. They can lose points when they give the wrong answer. The maximum number of points that can be received from a correct answer is thirteen, the minimum is one. After about ten seconds the game automatically switches to the next question and players who didn't answer yet receive no points at all. Questions range from addition, subtraction, multiplication and division examples. Players can easily change the frequency of each type of question changing a data array in the BASIC code.

The game ends when a predefined number of points is reached. [source:mobygames]
