Number Muncher!

In 1986, school game makerMinnesota Educational Computing Consortium, the geniuses behind the timeless masterpiece The Oregon Trail, created the educational computer game Number Muncher. Number Muncher was a knock-off of Pac-Man, pretty much. The Number Muncher was a green goblin (who kind of looked like Frogger after getting run over by a semi-truck) who had a body shape more confusing than a Kardashian’s,  a Kit Kat-shaped eye bar, and a mouth to munch numbers with.

The way the game went is that you picked a mode to play. There were five modes: Multiples, Factors, Primes, Equality, and Inequality. Since this was 1986, you didn’t eat up an anti-gay GOP senator when in “equality” mode and you didn’t eat up a “woman and man’s equal paycheck” when in “inequality” mode. This is Wikipedia’s description of all the modes and what you did when you were in that mode:

Multiples – The objective is to find multiples of the number given. If presented a 3, you would select numbers like 3, 6, 9, 12, etc.

Factors – In this mode you find factors divisible by the number given. If the number is 12, you would choose to eat 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, and 12.

Primes – This mode helps you find prime numbers that are only divisible by 1 and themselves. e.g., 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13.

Equality – This mode gives you the chance to find equations equaling the current number. If given the number 6, you would ‘munch’ 3 x 2, 3 + 3, 12 / 2, and so on.

Inequality – This mode gives you the number and you must select the equations that DO NOT equal the current number. If given 6, you would eat equations such as 4 X 2, 18 / 9, and 3 + 5.

Below is a sample game in Multiples mode. When that bitch told you to find “Multiples of 5,” you’d move the Number Muncher around and munch up as many answers as you could while being chased by Troggles, who were monsters that tried to put an end to the number-munching fun by killing you.

There were also Looney Tunes-worthy cut scenes featuring Number Muncher and the Toggles (jump to the 3:45 mark) for one.

Number Munchers (and its spin-off games) died out by the 90s, and MECC closed up in 1999. But you can still play the game online. Playing the game online as a grown at home is so much better than playing as a kid in a classroom. Because: 1. You can cheat with a calculator. And 2. Nobody will kick you out and send you to the principal’s office when you scream, “YES, Number Muncher, munch that number up. Seeing you munch like that makes me want to draw a multiple of 5 on my asshole!
