Tech Task# 7 – Educational Gaming
“Find and play an educational game. Write a short review on it. Consider Sylvia’s perspectives and your own as your write.”
Well I’m gamer and I love Math as well so I choose a very interesting game that suits my skills and gives me a challenges at the same time.
In this game you play a person whose mission is to save the world from balloons with numbers on it? too serious? yeah that’s not it lol.
This game’s main purpose is to train you on memorizing either multiplication or division. But wait, there is a catch. this is where the core gameplay pops in.
you are given a a multiplication or a division question and you need to pop the balloon that corresponds to the question. pretty easy right? Here’s a bigger catch.
The balloons move sideways until they fall to you, so if you pop the wrong balloon, you lose a chance to get the question that the balloon has. furthermore hit 2 balloons and the game ends.
This game not only challenges your mathematical ability but you finger dexterity as well. This game actually reminds me of Galaga
This game is good practising multiplication and division but noticed that there technical issues and bugs that I noticed while playing it. However, this game can also prove to be very useful when you’re training to think faster and give your fingers more dexterity for writing on your pc.
I am giving it an 9/10 because this game its not for the likes of everyone but if you want you’re a math person like me or just want something different for change, then this game is definitely for you.
