Artgig Apps today is thrilled to introduce Mystery Math Town 1.0, for iPad, a unique and engaging math practice app for kids. Designed for ages 6 and up, Mystery Math Town is the newest addition to the award-winning family of Artgig Apps, which also includes Marble Math, Alien Buddies, and Shake-a-Phrase. The object of the game is to help a friendly and curious little ghost rescue the fireflies that are hidden in Mystery Math Town. Along the way, players must use math skills to build equations and unlock rooms and passages. As a bonus, kids can earn talking portraits for their Gallery, revealing the stories of the colorful townspeople and the town itself. Mystery Math Town is available for download on the App Store at an introductory price of $2.99.
Jill Goodman, of Smart Apps for Kids, says "Artgig Studio, makers of Marble Math and other favorites, has outdone themselves with their latest. It's part math drills, part seek and find game and totally engaging. Kids ages five and up should find this both fun and challenging. Parents should rejoice that finally there is a way to get kids to want to do more math."
Designed to support classroom learning, Mystery Math Town offers customizable skills to practice a range of elementary math concepts (Addition, Subtraction, and Multiplication) for kids ages 6-12. The app can be configured with unlimited user profiles, each tailored for specific skill sets to suit different ages and abilities.
"We're really excited to share this educational game because it is so rich and immersive," says Artgig President Matthew Kicinski. "The visual style of the app conveys a sense of enchantment and discovery that is very appealing to kids, without feeling childish." He adds "I think the beauty of the experience lies in the attention to detail. That attention to detail really pays off when you see a kid using math to connect the dots between characters and laugh out loud at the stories that are revealed by the talking portraits. It's an entertaining mix of information and humor for all ages that adds up to a highly compelling educational product."
