Game of the Day: Candy Box by aniwey

I’m not sure what happened or where it came from, but one minute I was browsing Twitter, and the next everyone in my feed was playing Candy Box, a quirky ASCII browser RPG by computer science student aniwey. Punk Arcade has a brief interview with aniwey. Definitely check the game out.

    One more night, then you’re going down, Dragon. Tomorrow I’ll upgrade my sword to lv.9 and have eaten a million candies. Grrrr! :)

    Btw, here’s another review/interview with aniwey:

    Third question. Consider 10 days. If I give you 1 candy on the first day, and each other day I give you twice more candies than the previous one, how much candies will I give you on the day number 10?

    This is unanswerable!

    0 is the most obvious, since “each other day” starting from 1 means you’re only getting candy on odd-number days, but that’s wrong. So “each other day” must not actually mean “every other day” but “each of the days other than day 1″.

    Meanwhile, “twice more than the previous one” might mean double or triple.

    Triple, every day = 3^9 = wrong
    Double, every day = 2^9 = correct

    This was a terribly worded question.

      This was a terribly worded question.
      And yet I keep playing.

      • Alex says:

        The interview mentions that aniwey is studying in France, so English might not be their strongest language.

    • You know I actually far far happier then I should be too know that it is not just me that felt this way about that question.

      This game makes me feel like a kid again Eat all the candies!

    I am bewildered that I wasted two days of my life on this.
