Operation Math: Code Squad, by Spinlight Studio, is a brilliant multiplayer game for keeping kids current on all four math operations by jointly beating the clock. Code Squad is not for the faint of heart, and it does take teamwork and quick wit to reach all five levels of play. The premise behind Code Squad is to reach each level of difficulty through collaboration and cooperation, our experience in the classroom proved this app to be a winner in getting kids engaged and working together. Having an app that allows for multiplayer is a beautiful thing for the classroom setting and Code Squad continues to be the most requested app in our classrooms, kids are just clamoring to play together and win together. The app provides practice in either addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, or any combination of operations. We did encounter some situations where the game was too fast paced for some students, we let the developers know that a timing option in the settings would give this app a wider audience appeal. Spinlight does acknowledge that this app is not for those just learning their math facts and recommends the original Operation Math as better for students who are beginners, especially the training mode. TWA feels that Code Squad would be an awesome addition to family time, bringing all the siblings, friends, caregivers and parents an opportunity to play this action packed learning game together!
Based on the original Parents’ Choice award winner, Operation Math: Code Squad takes the action to a whole new level with simultaneous, multiplayer gameplay. Join up to three other Base 10 agents to solve the equations and disarm Dr. Odd’s latest device before your time runs out in a challenging game of tick-tock tech guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your iPad.
