CalcuLASER public beta is now live!

To download the game on your Android phone, click here:

To play, download the game to your phone, locate the icon and run it. Select the available area (1 if you just installed for the first time) and press "Launch".
Your ship should now be visible. Shortly, asteroids will start appearing; each will have a math problem associated with it. There is an auto lock-on mechanism which will show the problem; once visible, select the correct answer to blow up the asteroid. You may also manually switch between locked on asteroids.

Get as high a score as possible in as few tries as possible; unlock a BRONZE STAR (50% of problems answered correctly on first try) to unlock the next area. Replaying levels grants an increasing replay bonus.

This is an open beta release. The game may contain bugs or issues; if you encounter any, we would be most greatful if you could inform us of them in the comments below.

Thank you for downloading CalcuLASER, we hope you have a fun, educational time!
