A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Varying levels of difficulty and the ability to save progress are useful learning tools. Kids who want to be more challenged by the harder math problems might get frustrated that they can’t keep up with the pace of the game.
Ease of Play
Getting started is simple, but using the scratch pad is a bit tedious. Figuring out the best game strategy is tough – there’s not enough time to think about which cannons to use and which towers to build first.
Products & Purchases
There’s an ad on the home screen for the developer’s other apps. Tapping and holding an icon for a few seconds takes users to the app store.

Is It Any Good?
The greatest value of this fast-paced game is that it offers different levels of difficulty across four mathematical operations, but it’s best suited for building fluency in basic match facts. There’s not much time for kids to do calculations, and the scratch pad is pretty cumbersome. Kids have two chances to get an answer correct and are not offered feedback or help. But for those who need to practice basic arithmetic skills or prepare for timed assessments, this game could do the trick.
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.
