I spent a few moments playing this game and I am sure kids would love it! When I was a kid, we would play games that taught us how to type on the keyboard properly and it was so much fun to be learning but having a good time as well. The graphics are pretty good for what it is. There are many different options as to what kind of math and what level which is great because if a subject is difficult for you, and then you continue to get wrong answers you are not going to be motivated to try. This game lets you start out easy and once you have mastered it, you can then take it one step higher and progressively get better while still feeling good about yourself.

This game is great for developing the mathematical skills of young kids and it can be useful for some adults as well. It is good because it covers the four basic mathematical operations: addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Another good thing about this game is that it has three levels: easy, medium and hard. By the way the hard level can be challenging for many adults and the reason for that is people depend a lot on calculators. When they try to calculate mentally or without using a calculator, they find themselves very slow and very hesitant. When you play this game you receive feedback right away after each attempt. The design of the game is very attractive for the kids because it has very beautiful colors; it is full of motions and has got a lot of sounds. It is a very good place for whoever wants to develop his/her mathematical skills. Even for those who are good at mathematics, the game will be an excellent source for refreshing their memory and making them faster in solving mathematical problems related to the four operations. I highly recommend it for primary school teachers and adults who are weak at mathematics
