Review: Maths Castle

Set in the style of a Tower Defence game: defend your tower using mathematical skills.

View on the App Store: Maths Castle - Thunderstorm

Features of Maths Castle:

  • It's fun and engaging while learning mathematics.
  • Easy, medium and hard options to set the game at your child's skill level.
  • Fast action mental arithmetic calculations required to win the game.
  • Defend your castle using your skill at mathematics, cool!
  • Excellent for learning times tables.
Set in the style of a Tower Defence game, this time you defend your tower using your mathematical skills.  

Choose between adventure, survival and times tables.  
Next choose your mathematical mode from division, multiplication, subtraction, addition, then your level from easy, medium and hard. 

From your castle at the right of the screen you answer the series of maths questions that appear on your calculator.  

Type in the correct answer and press FIRE to release an arrow towards the knight coming to attack your castle.  Keep firing to keep the enemies from winning. 

There are 3 modes: Adventure, Survival and Time Tables.
Adventure mode is more relaxed than Survival. It has levels of difficulty in each mode, but has a clear ending to the game.  

Survival is where your game is never ending, you keep going as long as possible and your success is timed.  This is for those who like another type of competitive challenge. 

Times Tables is the same game but the questions are all based on the chosen times table. 

There are also power ups available by collecting coins. Use the fire, lightening, freeze or shield for help in the mathematical battle.

You can also gain extra points by collecting COMBO points.  This is adding quickly before the time goes out and getting extra points for answering so many in a row.

Fun for anyone who likes battle games with a huge educational benefit!

My boys want to play the Maths Castle App and do maths rather than being told it is a good idea. Must be able to read numbers and count using numbers.
