I kinda like the way the puzzles are laid out, the branching and converging patterns give you opportunities to move to a different branch when you get stuck, and the optional harder side puzzles provide interesting challenges. Since the test data for this puzzle doesn't have any collisions it made my crappy solution into one that isn't half bad.
Still trying to solve Greater as checking when the number is less than the what it's being divided by is the only thing I can think of to stop that loop. It was always a treat to get dragged to the mall with my parents because I'd get to play for a few minutes on the Atari 2600. Then you're ready to start specifying how your puzzle works!
