The New York Times New Math-Based Puzzle Game Can be Tried Now

    The New York Times announced a new puzzle-based math game, Digitalts. You can take a beta test right now.

    Digits gives you six numbers you can add, subtract multiply, divide, or multiply to get a goal number. There are six numbers you can use, but not only. You can multiply two numbers and add them to one another. If you achieve the goal number exactly, you get three stars. However, if you are close to it, you will get one or two stars.

    The New York Times has the following picture. The person was given the starting numbers 4, 9, 7, 10, (based on the computation at top), 1, (also in computation) and 20. They are now trying to add them up to 235. The player decided to subtract 1 from 10 to get the green circle with the number 9. To get to 235, they can combine that 9 with any other number.

    I have completed all five Digits Puzzles. I got three stars for the first one, but I enjoyed trying to get close to the goal number. It’s nice that you can still win even if you don’t reach the total. I think part of why I dropped was due to feeling pressure to find the right word. The Digits animation that you use to combine numbers has a subtle, but pleasing animation. It reminds me of Threes or 2048.

    However, the Digitalts beta was a bit buggy. The game wouldn’t work in my incognito Chrome browser at first. After I refreshed the page and logged in to my work Chrome browser, the numbers wouldn’t combine properly. On my phone, however, it was not registering any taps. These issues were fixed for me so I hope you don’t have to.

    Digits is described in an NYT article. The beta test will be available for one week. According to the article, “If the response to Digits isn’t what they are hoping for,” the [NYT’s Greenlight] committee will decide if further tuning is necessary or if development should stop. It’s not clear if Digits will become a full-featured game. We’ve asked the NYT to confirm.
