"Alien Equation is a math app that really works your brain. "
"This is a great game for math practice and your kids won’t even realize they’re doing more than just playing a game."
-The iPhone Mom
"Alien Equation is a great puzzle game with a unique educational twist."
"While there are plenty of apps ... for straight-up drill and practice, Alien Equation also involves number sense and spatial reasoning."

Have your kids ever said “I’m not good at math?” Math proficiency is a skill that takes practice. People who are good have spent a lot of time doing it, the best one’s because they enjoy it. Alien Equation provides an environment for kids to experiment, instantly rewarding them for success, allowing math to be fun and fluid.
Alien Equation is a great way for kids to build fluency in addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Especially in practice mode where you can isolate any combination of these. We employ fancy AI that adjusts to the players ability while nudging them to try new things. It’s also a great tool for anyone who enjoys puzzle games and wants to beef up those scrawny neurons.
- A totally unique concept and mechanic that puts the player in the drivers seat. You progress by making equations but we don’t just spoon feed them to you like everyone else, you gotta make ‘em up yourself.
- Practice mode that lets you set the difficulty and isolate addition, subtraction, multiplication or division. Take it at your own pace, we won’t judge.
- Three different kinds of special tiles to keep you on your toes.
- Super polished interaction, art, animations, and sound.
- iPod controls that let you listen to your own music.
- Great AI that adjusts to the players ability while nudging them to try new things.
- User profiles to keep track of your own personal progress.
What's New in Version 1.1
We added player profiles in this version, so that mom, dad and each of the kids can resume their last game. Player profiles also keep track of what equations were built. This allows the system to adapt to each player individually. There are also a number of minor tweaks all around the app. We believe you will enjoy this updated version even more.
Great game. It's fun and builds arithmetic skills
This game is fun and challenging. It's not just a kids game or math drill (although it does improve your arithmetic mastery.) It's addictive.
I had one problem when I started playing: The problem occur when the sticky glue sticks something together like 5-9. The answer requires a negative number, but often there is no other minus tile to make the answer. I thought it was a problem with the game, but really all you have to do is maneuver a number in front of the five so it becomes something like 55. Then you can subtract the 9.
Anyway. Very original, very fun game.
loving it and realizing that I am way too slow for it
I really like this little game. Its easy and fun. At level 6 things become quite tricky and difficult. Its not so much the equations themselves that are hard, but the speed you have to arrange the numbers and not get eaten by the evil enemies... ;-)
Outstanding Math Game that is actually fun.
With Alien Equation, kids (and adults)can learn math by building simple equations that earn them points.
The game play is quick, but allows for players with a wide range of skills.
Making progress in the game is gratifying and encouraging.
The Practice mode allows you to select any operators you want (+,-,x,/), so you can focus on different types of equations.
I also like the feature that lets me choose from my own music to play in the background.
