iPhone App Review: Binary Game

iPhone App Review: Binary Game

February 19th, 2009 by

Ok, so if you are a geek like me, you probably have encountered binary numbers at some point. Even if you haven’t, you don’t need to have any knowledge of it to play this fast paced puzzle game. I have spent a few hours now trying to master this game while having a total blast.

I first heard of B1nary Game on Twitter when @garyvee and @yonnage were offering a free copy of the app to people who would review it. Needless to say, I am very glad that I took them up on their offer.

The idea of the game is actually quite simple. It consists of 8 switches that you can either turn on or off. Each switch represents a different number (it’s a digit in a binary number, but that knowledge is not needed to play). Quick binary tutorial… In base 10 (numbers we use to count) you have the 1’s, 10’s, 100’s places, etc… In binary you have the 1’s, 2’s, 4’s,8’s, etc… place. Each of these switches represents a different place (hrm… same game with base 10, Im on it… lol it would be stupid easy to win).

So the game presents you with a number (in base 10) that you must represent in binary by switching the appropriate switches on and off. Don’t worry, the switches have their corresponding number above them. For example, if the game gives you the number 74, you would switch on the 64, 8, and 2 switch to add up to 74. Sounds simple right?

Well, the concept is simple, but B1nary game offers a few different game modes to make it more challenging. The first is Challenge Mode. In this game mode, you must complete puzzles in the allotted time. As you advance, you get less and less time to complete the puzzle. Once your time runs out, you lose.

The next game mode is Speed Mode. This presents you with 15 levels that you have to blaze through as fast as you can.

One thing that makes B1nary Game incredibly addictive, is the fact that high scores get published to their website. And on top of that, if you use your @twittername as your username, it will link to your Twitter account.

So, if you have $1.99 to spend (and I’m sure you do, that’s like the price of a freakin soda) be sure to check out B1nary Game. It’s a lot fun. If you end up checking it out, post your comments here and let me know what you think.
