Reviewers comments

A collection of simple mathematics games and activities are presented in this game. These include counting, number sequence, examining the highest and lowest numeral addition and subtraction. The design is generally simple and instructions clear. The App uses an American spoken voice – but unlike the similar phonics Apps (from this App developer) the accent is less problematic in this App as its focus is not on specific sounds.

While the App focuses on numbers up to 20 this was challenging for some children in user testing, who were not quite ready for numbers beyond 10. Within the game there appears to be no setting to control this and the random presentation of numbers (especially in the activities exploring larger and smaller numbers) was challenging, with simple numbers presented and interspersed with higher numbers.

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.
