Roman Numerals uses the same great game play as Mathtopia+. Smart Apps for Kids says of the Mathtopia+ game engine: “the first app I’ve reviewed that has been so addicting to me I couldn’t stop playing long enough to write the review. It’s also being played by all three of my children, in 6th grade, 3rd grade, and kindergarten, and I’ve even heard them fighting over the iPad for more Mathtopia+ time. I can guarantee no one in my house has ever fought over more time with flash cards.” Mathtopia+ won the Children’s Technology Review’s 2013 Editor’s Choice Award for Excellence in Design.
Fun and addicting, Roman Numerals builds mastery through repetitive matching of related concepts. Rewards and achievements encourage speed and accuracy.
Game play consists of a matching game, followed by solving a tile-swapping puzzle to advance. The puzzle game is similar to popular jewel swapping games but with multi-touch swap, enabling more complicated and challenging matching for addicts of tile-matching puzzlers.
Roman Numerals isn’t just for kids. Like all tile-swapping puzzle games it is a great way to reduce stress. Roman Numerals has the added benefit of keeping your brain sharp.
Lessons teach each concept and can be reviewed, skipped or repeated.
