We need not check farther than 3-digit numbers, as 4 * 9^2 = 324 -- only a 3-digit number; and in fact, 3 * 9^2 = 243, so even that number need not be exceeded.

DECLARE FUNCTION sumsq# (x#)
DEFDBL A-Z
FOR n = 1 TO 243
 IF n = sumsq(n) + 1 THEN PRINT n
NEXT n

FUNCTION sumsq (x)
  s$ = LTRIM$(STR$(x))
  t = 0
  FOR i = 1 TO LEN(s$)
   t = t + VAL(MID$(s$, i, 1)) * VAL(MID$(s$, i, 1))
  NEXT
  sumsq = t
END FUNCTION

the results being only 35 and 75.
