A fun, thoughtful, and challenging game to sparkle interest in the field of computer science.
APOPKA, Fla., May 27, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Saintilway Productions, the publisher of Numbrail.
Saintilway Productions today announced that Numbrail is available globally at numbrail.com. The game is created to intrigue the brain of all puzzle lovers.
Numbrail was invented during the covid pandemic. The original idea for the game came from a technical interview question. The setup of the question consisted of a list of numbers. A user can select a number from either the beginning or the end of the list. The selection alternates between two users. The task was to write a function that would maximize a user’s output.
Wendly, the creator of Numbrail, expanded the problem space of the technical question. He transformed it from a linear list to a matrix like a chessboard. To increase the fairness of the game, the board size was restricted to an odd number. And the two players share the last selected number. Numbrail is all about sharing. It is a simple yet deep optimization problem. To win, a user must maximize their output without being greedy. The semantics of the game will get our neuron cells firing. It is developed with the hope of sparking interest in the field of computer science.
Numbrail has received praise for its design. A user pointed out that the "UI is clean and minimalist." Another mentioned that the game is "compelling hehe will keep going back to it."
