Learning has always been more fun combined with playing. Math games are the kind that’s hard to make really interesting, unlike regular exercises that can be formulated right to make some sense to students. But kids learning the simplest math need some games to have more interest in it. So here’s Math Fun by Indian company Yash Future Tech Solutions. Not sure if playing this will make a new Ramanujan out of you or your kids, but it’s definitely worth trying to upgrade your arithmetical skills.
Graphics — 4/5
Not as abstract as numbers and operations would suggest, the game contains just as much graphics as to make it a bit more fun to kids. Nothing is photorealistic or fantastic, yet the developers kept away from dullness schoolbooks sometimes bear.
The pictures are in 2D, but clear and bright. The arithmetical actions the game suggests are visible and distinct, so, if kids can read even a little bit, they will easily make it out.
The only thing that seems dull is music. A simple tune follows you throughout the game and doesn’t change with the kind of operation. Even ads seem a pleasant break in it.
Gameplay — 5/5
The essential part of Math Fun is arithmetical problems, and they are given as tests, so the player has to select the correct answer of the three or four proposed. By selecting the right option, the player gains some coins and advances in the level.
There are tasks about adding, subtracting, dividing, multiplying, comparing and counting. A kid can have a level a day to level up in math, and then again.
First of all, it’s motivating. As you solve the problems, you do some tasks, like helping the train advance, jumping with a tiger through fire loops, jumping up and down a hill with a kitten, and so on. The better you do on an early level, the sooner you can reach out further and get to more complicated math.
You’ll need to solve most of the problems to proceed. In fact, it’s like a school book on math with moving pictures and interactive checking.
Controls — 5/5
It would be too hard to teach kids some specific controls before they start teaching math. So it’s done extremely simple with just a mouse click for any action. Click to select the section. Click to select the answer you consider right. Click to proceed to the next level or to return to the home menu. That’s simply it.
In fact, that’s what school tests should be like. But it’s good for learning in this format too.
Replay Value — 4/5
Replaying in this game is called learning. As you learn the rules of basic operations, you can apply them to more and more complicated tasks. It’s done through repetition, and that’s the best way to learn arithmetic.
On the other hand, sticking to a particular level means bad skill. So, while replaying can be useful, too much of it indicates no progress at all. It’s OK for a kid to try the hardest tasks they can. So, while any level is replayable, chances are it will be abandoned as soon as the next one unlocks.
Though it’s obviously a kids’ game, some adults may want to try it too, to check whether they are too calculator-spoiled. Tasks of growing complexity, funny pics, randomly generated problems, and automatic answer checking are easy to make out. Tell your kids to take their time and to count instead of simply guessing. Maybe they will formulate some easy rules that can help with in-mind calculations.
A good game-based math training application for your computer. Giving your kids a level a day will be a good idea to help them with arithmetic.
Pros : Funny graphics with visible progress
All the basic operations covered
Randomly generated problems of growing complexity
Cons : Steam edition seems overpriced (while Android version of it is available for free)
The tasks may be too easy for kids that might like the idea
Too few levels
Replay Value 4.0
