What's New in Version 1.6
Minor bug fixes
Lacking in Focus but Pretty
The graphics are impressive for iOS; I would place them at around PS1 level. The game automatically moves the character along a preset path and even turns the character's head, so the player has no control other than which answer to click. The program itself is little more than flashcards with multiple choice answers in a visually appealing package. This in and of itself is not a problem, but Math Mage could improve in the area of user selectability of the content to be presented and practiced. The game simply generates random arithmetic problems. This means the app can't be used by conscientious students for focused review of specific content. A student wanting to practice his 7's times tables, for instance, would not find this app useful. But if you're just looking for something to keep the math portion of your brain from melting over the summer, it will do fine.
Fast paced and fun
My students LOVE this app. It goes beyond basic math facts and adds multi-digit problems later on in the game. Fun graphics, a fun story. Overall, very well done.
Good learning game
Math Mage provides an entertaining way to practice basic arithmetic. It's fun and good math practice together in one app.
