The Devil’s Calculator

The Devil’s Calculator is a non-profit math game that proves a sophisticated indie puzzler for lovers of logic and brain teasers. Rather than the typical scenario of solving for x in an algebraic expression, imagine the operators themselves were unknown. In this challenge, an evil calculator has its arithmetic operators replaced with sadistically obscure functions. Using logic and a bit of algebra, work backwards to interpolate and use these corrupted operators to compute the “number of the beast,” 666, to purge the calculator of its demons.

Non-profit and open-source, The Devil’s Calculator is an indie math game that’s as addicting as it is educational. Accessible to numberphiles and math novices alike, the first 20+ levels are free to play and enjoy, with full versions available to educators and students at no cost.

Advanced graphing mechanics, countless features and simple, yet innovative level design provide considerable depth to the game play. Players unlock the ability to create their own levels and play challenges others have created, including free DLC levels crafted by the game’s developers, educators and mathematicians. With hand drawn artwork and a charming story, the Devil’s Calculator is a fun and gratifying puzzle experience.
