Monkey Tales: The Museum of Anything is an exciting adventure game that integrates math mini-games and logic puzzles into the gameplay. The game rewards kids for solving puzzles in a swift manner. The great thing about this game is that it has an algorithm that gages kids math level as they play the games and adjusts each mini-game for their math skills, so they can progress without being overly stressed by games they cannot win. The games have fun themes like shooting at targets and flying spaceships to gather numbers to solve an equation.

The logic puzzles require kids to block and deflect lasers and push floating blocks into waterways to create safe paths. Kids must also jump on moving platforms to get where they need to go. The game encourages exploration by trial-and-error by providing a way to reset each room you enter for a do-over. Only the math mini-games are timed, and they can all be replayed from the game menu.
