Not enough entertainment

A very well-made game, but too much like a typical learning process. Look at this one it's more fun but it also teaches

Is It Any Good?

The game is useful for quick practice with the four mathematical operations, but don't expect targeted practice for a particular learning level. However, equations naturally get more difficult as kids move from addition and subtraction to multiplication and division, and the speed in Mathematical Run picks up when kids choose game modes that have more than one operation. Earning points, stars, and ranking on the leaderboard is a good way to motivate kids, as long as they aren't interested in the typical "prizes" that a lot of arcade games dish out.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
