Numbers is an educational roguelike, that's designed to improve and test your basic maths skills. No calculators are allowed during the game :)

Numbers was created for the 7DRL Contest 2008. You can read the creation log.

Thank you to Corremn for the suggestion of showing the correct answer when the player gets a question wrong.

Mini FAQ

Q. Argh! Why is there no 'look' command?!
A. Magical beam effects are random when entered and there's only one monster type, so a look command wouldn't be useful.

Q. I get a message about missing dll's when I run the game. What can I do?
A. Download the VB6 Library.

Q. Can I complete the game without light beam effects?
A. Yes! Light beams are always on intersections, so if you want a challenge, you can move diagonally to avoid them.
