Good App

This is a good fun game. But my kids are not willing to play on the computer and prefer to use their ipads so this game does not get used. :(

Is It Any Good?

Monkey Tales: The Princess of Sundara makes math homework fun by presenting kids with math mini-games set inside an exciting adventure story. The game rewards kids for solving puzzles correctly and swiftly. The software also has an algorithm that gages kids 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 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.
