    Calculator Quest's review

    Published: 2013-11-13, by .

    Basic calculator combined with 8-bit RPG graphics

    • Awesome retro design
    • Great 8-bit soundtrack in the mini-games
    • Actually a calculator
    • Very limited calculator functions
    • Not actually an RPG

    "8-bit mathematics"

    Sometimes, you need to calculate. Other times, you need to play 8-bit RPGs. What if you could do both? Two birds, one stone? It's dangerous to go alone: take URARA-WORKS Co., Ltd's Calculator Quest.

    It's the most basic of calculators, including only the four main arithmetic functions. However! Every number you punch in is accompanied by a slick little 8-bit enemy below. They don't hail from any specific game, but would fit perfectly in Dragon Warrior or an early Final Fantasy, and definitely smack the nostalgia button on the nose.

    The pair of ultra-simplistic games included with the calculator involve typing quickly and doing simple sums in your head. Pointless - if not for the kickin' 8-bit soundtrack. Watch your pixelated hero scuttle across the screen swiping away the baddies as you calculate 8 4!

    There are better calculator apps, there are better RPG apps, but the hybrid genre has little competition. URARA-WORKS Co., Ltd's Calculator Quest is sweet.
