With the successes of their first educational app “Math Easy HD” introduced in Christmas 2010, Onelamp Studio set out to make learning fun and now they’ve announced their second iPad game “Worm Jump HD”.
Worm Jump HD is a themed puzzle game that challenges kids to solve math problems with different worm characters. This includes addition, subtraction, and variations shapes. Based on the child’s knowledge, you can choose from different levels. In addition and subtraction mode, for example, you can choose to solve problems from 0-10 to 50. If you prefer shape matching which doesn’t require any calculation, you can choose 3 or 5 shapes to play with.
You’re playing as the determined worm that jumps to the top, however a hungry bird is chasing after you to fill the empty stomach. You must answer the math questions as quickly as possible to jump through steps of obstacles and traps (such as storm and fire), pick up energy item and steer to avoid being killed. Simply tap the buttons on the right of the game screen to jump! But be careful, the mistakes will bring you even more troubles on the way up.
You have to gain scores and earn stars in order to unlock new themes and characters with super powers. Five challenging themes and avatar make hours of math practice not boring but entertaining. Be quick to answer because the bird will speed up each time when you come across an apple. The more correct answers you give the more dangerous it will be with roadblocks and spider wed for penalty.
Well worth the $0.99 price tag, “Worm Jump HD” includes a Game Center Leaderboard, two modes, a total of 5 worm characters and 5 themes. Most importantly, this “edutainment” offering makes math fun by combining arcade game with elementary-level math problems.
