My baby girl doesn't have the gender-problem that others speak about in their reviews. She doesn't care the 'character' is a guy, just that it is fun math. The only problem daughter has with the game is - the buttons! The buttons are quite small, when you type in the correct answer. Sometimes the answer is wrong just because our big-fat-fingers can't hit the right buttons on this guy's watch number-pad thing. There is a lot of 'dead' space on the screen, showing the spy's fist and a nice background, so why not make the keypad bigger on the watch-face? Anyway... silly complaint, I know, we should just be more careful when playing.
Cool Great for maths!!!!!!!!
Superb idea well executed, but has two flaws Great app - cool, fun, educational (maths but geography too). My 6yo son actually *wants* to play it. And there's the first flaw. He wants to play it... but my daughter doesn't! You need a girl spy as an option too. The second flaw is the timer. He prefers to play in the training room where there's no time limit because the 60-second timer is 1) too hard after level one or two - he just can't do that many sums in so little time, and 2) he gets nervous as the time ticks down, so he can't concentrate and makes mistakes. Two ways to fix this could be: allow the user to choose a time limit, or to have a button available to the child which they can hit to get 30 more seconds.
Very slick and fun game for 5 to 9 year olds Maths games are often a bit dull, this isn't. Loads better than the ones that are super popular. How come this hasnt sold more. The only negative is that my kids find the countdown and music a bit scary, and start to panic whenever there is only 10s left. Not sure why none of the maths games realise that times table is introduced in stages. My 6 year old knows his 2, 3, 5, 10 tables but hasn't touched 4, 6, 7, 8 ,9. He therefore can't do multiplications in many games.
Fab The lower levels are just the right amount of challenging for my maths-obsessed five year old, the upper levels are challenging enough to keep my husband entertained! I can see this being used for a long time in my house.
