Could this be any closer to Threes, without calling it Threes? (aside from using division instead of addition).

Probably fun but three bucks for a game that looks like it was coded in BASIC? It's not the customers fault the app stores pricing results in 99 cent games. Or free for that matter.

I don't see why every single minimalistic tile based numerical puzzle game gets labelled off as a threes clone. This looks very different with an interesting mechanic, and I'm probably going to buy this (the trailer was quite funny).
Only concern is the randomization of the numbers you receive.

I rarely call 'clone' on games, but when I do, it's with good reason. I don't see any good reason here. In fact, this looks like a really innovative addition to the genre. I can see that already tell it'll be divisive. (Puns intended)

As a math teacher, the biggest wish I have for this game is for the entire game to be flipped vertically, so you're swiping numbers up instead of down. The reason for this is because then the numbers would properly align like their fraction form. In the picture example it shows a 3 over a 6, but considers that to be 6/3.
If it was flipped, or at least made an option where you could flip it in the settings, I believe it would be far more intuitive as well as being a better learning resource for students.
I would use this as a game for my students to practice fractions and diving, but would never consider it the way that it is now because it would be confusing to students.
