Medieval Math Battle is an educational game for Windows Phone 8 that combines a fantasy adventure with basic math skills. You travel a Medieval world battling giant spiders, dragons, goblins and other mystical creatures.
All the while learning addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.
Medieval Math Battle may not appeal to everyone but I've got to admit it's a fun way to learn the basics of math with. It's definitely a game worthy of our Windows Phone Kids Corner.
Game play with Medieval Math Battle takes place in a fantasy land where you battle various monsters and earn coins that can be used in the game's shoppe to upgrade your character.
When in battle, you have to solve mathematical problems to strike at your opponent. If you incorrectly solve a problem, your hero misses his attack and is more vulnerable to counter attacks. Combat is turned based and if you start to get into trouble, there are various potions lining the top of the screen that will give your character a slight edge.
If you're curious about how well you (or your child) is doing with the game there is a report card feature off the main menu. The report card will display the game time and which problems are posing problems or that have been mastered.
If you're looking for a fun game to help your child with math skills, Medieval Math Battle is worth a try. Math problems are along Elementary School level, likely K-5 grades if I had to guess. In just tinkering with the game for a short time, the only downside is that there aren't any gaming options to mute the music/sound effects. Otherwise, the game ran smooth and I can see it being an attractive learning game for our younger audience.
The free version of Medieval Math Battle includes the addition module with subtraction, multiplication, and division modules running $.99 each via in-app purchase. You can save a little and buy the full package for $1.99.
Medieval Math Battle is available for Windows Phone 8 devices and you can pick up your copy here in the Windows Phone Store.
