Here’s a game for you geeks in the crowd. Binary Challenge teaches you to convert binary code into the number system. The game also teaches you quaternary and hexadecimal code if you can stick with it that far.
This game requires you to think, and by this we mean you will have to add, a lot. The game has a lot of potential to teach you mental math in a fun way if you let it. If adding up numbers is something you love, this game was made for you. The game has a soothing soundtrack which will facilitate your dive into a meditative zone where you become a Zen mentat of some sort.
Your reverie will be broken by the intrusion of an ad and you will find yourself losing your concentration, just before you were about to become a human computer yourself. If you do not like math, stay away. This game will demand really quick addition from you. There is a really short tutorial before you are flung off the deep end. However, it is only addition so you should be good with it.
The graphics are suitably modern and the game will make for a nice way to spend your time on your phone and yet learn something out of it. The game also has a tutorial on the three coding systems as well as more information about them. All in all, Binary Challenge is a commendable attempt at disguising education as something fun.
