The goal of Splitting Seeds is to evenly divide the seeds on the ground, so each bird gets the same amount to snack on!
Spin the stick with either your mouse cursor on a computer or by touch on a mobile device. Once you think the stick is evenly dividing the seeds, either click the mouse button on a computer or tap the screen if you're on a mobile device.
Here is the start of a round with the stick randomly positioned among the seeds:
Click or tap the stick to rotate it and evenly divide the seeds among the birds.
After positioning the stick, numbers appear on either side indicating the amount of seeds for each bird. You want to make sure the same number of seeds are on both sides!
If you position the stick incorrectly, then a red "X" appears in the center of the game screen. The number of seeds on both sides also appear.

Scoring & Levels
The scoring for Splitting Seeds is based on the number of correct rounds you complete, the speed at which you answer, and the level at which you're playing. You're awarded 200 points times the level for each correct round.
For example, on level 1 a correct answer is worth 200 points (200 x 1), a correct answer on level 5 is worth 1000 points (200 x 5), and a correct answer on level 10 is worth a whopping 2000 points (200 x 10)!
Each game starts at level 1. The highest level is 10. There is a tally of four dots at the top of the game screen that fills by 1 when you get a round correct. If the meter fills to 4, then the level/multiplier increases up to a maximum of 10, and the meter is reset.
For example, if you get the first 4 answers correct in a row, the meter fills up and then your level increases to 2. The meter then empties. If you get the next 4 answers correct, then the meter fills up again and your level increases to 3.
At the end of the game you get a bonus of 1000 times the level you ended on. Players can earn up to 10,000 total for the max level!
On the flip side, if you incorrectly answer a round, you lose one or more dots in relation to how incorrect the given answer was. The difference (X) between the two halves moves the level meter down X/2 notches, but not more than 4 notches.
For example, a 5/7 split would lose one notch (2 divided by 2), a 2/6 split as shown in the example above would lose 2 notches (4 divided by two), and a 2/10 division would lose four notches (8 divided by 2). In the case you lose more notches than you have, you move down one level and the meter resets.
