Jump into a Pac-Man type environment with this kids’ iPad Education app called Fishy Math. Young kids will play as a fish swimming in an underwater Pac-Man like game board eating dots and correct answers to solve addition problems, but be sure to watch out for the fish-eating shark in the more advanced levels. Fishy Math has been called “PacMath” and is quite a concept that encourages kids to have fun playing games with the added benefit of learning to memorize simple addition equations. For those not familiar with Pac-Man, it’s an iconic video game that came out in 1980 and still remains popular today — 3+ decades later.
In Fishy Math, kids play as an orange fish, much like the Pac-Man character, cruising along eating dots and trying to gobble up the correct answer for each addition equation that appears in the upper left of the game board, to rack up points. There are a few hazards (baddies) to avoid like wrong answers and a rather aggressive shark in the more advanced levels that make the task a little more tricky. Kids can tap-to-play using the directional controls (bottom center) or by using swipe gestures, which provide a more intuitive, easier to control, and more comfortable playing method for this type of game. Fishy Math has 10 levels, but users can play past this and each level has a star ranking system that allows for replay of game levels — and replay value.
There are no advertisements, in app purchases, nor social networks in Fishy Math to lead kids astray. I found this retro-style game to be a very simplistic, yet an enjoyable math game that will more than likely draw young kids into this learning game and teach them some basic math at the same time. However, at its current price of $1.99, it could be considered a bit steep for the amount of content in the game. I think a perfect “addition” to this game would be a few different game modes or even a variety of other arithmetic equations for subtraction, division, and multiplication. This iOS Universal kids’ Education game has room to grow and a great game engine to drive it.
