Monkey Tales: Castle Draconian is an adventure game that kids play through by solving puzzles, avoiding monsters, and playing math-based mini-games. The mini-games are presented in a fun manner, as kids blast correct answers to puzzles, steer spaceships around to collect enough numbers to solve an equation, and even cross a bridge by stepping on tiles that are lit by selecting the correct answer to a math problem.

Logic puzzles include deflecting lasers with mirrors to burn up an obstacle and pushing blocks to create bridges. The uniqueness of this game is that it has an algorithm which gages players math level and continues to monitor their progress as they play through the game, presenting progressively harder mini-games at each chapter and level. Kids progress while playing the game without being stressed by games that are too hard for their math level.

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.
