Aek in the Math Monsterland is edutainment math learning game for preschoolers and school children. It started as a family project with my 6 years old son. Since I'm not so happy that he spends that much time with his tablet, I tried to motivate him to think about games in a more creative way. I told him - let's make our own game. One day he doodled a character and name it "AEK", later he came with the monsters. So, I had to keep my part of the promise and make a game.
I wanted for this game to be educational, but also to be addictive and fun for kids to play it. Wait, that's AEK - Addictive Education for Kids! The topic of this game is cool math for kids, i.e. fun kids math.
The plot of this cool and fun math game is quite simple: Aek finds it self surfing on a magical skateboard with a mission to survive. The only way Aek can do so is by jumping over monsters that comes in the way. When a monster caught him, it is not over yet, he still got a chance of escape if he answers correct to the monster math quiz. The far Aek goes, the harder it gets. Besides monsters, Aek can run into power-ups such as flying balloons, speedup rabbits, slowdown turtles, and additional quiz questions (lives).
Monster math quiz covers the following areas:
- addition of 2 numbers
- subtraction of 2 numbers
- addition of 3 numbers
- mixed addition and subtraction of 3 numbers
- simple equations
- Fibonacci series
- multiplication of two numbers
- division of two numbers
Aek in the Math Monsterland also features kids board game section with Tic Tac Toe (aka Noughts & Crosses) and Four in a Row (aka Connect 4, Four in a Line, Four Up, Plot Four, Find Four, Fourplay, and Captain's Mistress), so when your kid gets tired from math and jumping monsters it can practice logical thinking :)
