The game development was based on 3 principles
1 repetition is the mother of skill
To become good at something, you have to repeat something over and over again. While repetition is a great thing, repeating mistakes should be avoided. This app uses something called "guided learning". The questions are built up, so it's easy enough to get the answers right most of the time. Thus, the whole phrase, including the correct answer, like `6 times 9 equals 54` is repeated many times. This instead of `6 times 9 is a big number with 5`
2 learning something you need to learn is easier
In games, learning the skills of the game goes automatically. To advance in the game, you have to become better. In this game, the skills you need to learn (the maths tables) are required to get further in the game.
3 Both seeing and hearing at the same time is more effective
Childrens learning strategies can be very different. While some learn easier by seeing, others need to hear things to learn best. This game uses both seeing and hearing to double effectiveness.

But, this was an odd war for guns there were not.
A space race where dreamers at last could rejoice.
Intelligence, math skills were weapons of choice."
