App description

Tap Maths is an educational game where players practise their arithmetic by choosing the right answer before the time runs out. A maths sum falls from the top of the screen and the player must choose which answer is correct before the sum reaches the bottom. A simple two number maths sum with addition, subtraction or multiplication falls from the top if the screen. The player is given two possible answers. The sum will continue falling until the player chooses an answer. If they choose correctly, the next sum will start falling. When the sum reaches the bottom of the screen the game is over. This encourages players to answer the questions as fast as possible. If the player chooses incorrectly, the game is over.

Parental guidance is recommended for under 13’s due to advertising and online interactivity.

About games and gambling

Most games contain elements of risk, chance and knowledge, that is why they are fun to play. There is growing concern about the impacts of simulated gambling games on the health and wellbeing of children. That's why we are identifying games that contain gambling elements on our site.

The State Government of South Australia's web site http://nogame.com.au/ contains information about these concerns.
