Jump! A Game of Numbers by Artgig Studio – Review
Jump! A Game of Numbers by Artgig Apps is a universal app for iOS that features math including addition, subtraction and of course fun with Snortles. This app allows you to practice simple number identification, addition, subtraction, putting numbers together, planning to capture the Snortles and more!
This is a fun yet addicting math game that encourages kids to practice their math skills in a fun yet interactive way. One of my favorite parts is that it gets harder and easier depending on how your child does with the level. By dynamically adjusting it makes the app fun and encourages kids to stay engaged. This app is a great way to practice #commoncore math skills by problem solving in different ways – it adapts to the child or user so you will be challenged, but the challenge isn’t so hard that you will give up. My son also liked that you could make the path in any direction that you wanted rather than having to follow a liner path – especially when he went to find the Snortles. I turned off the stompers and fuses for him on the front page so it became for fun and less stressful – sometimes they would be stresful for him, so it wasn’t worth it! I also liked that you could have unlimited accounts which meant that even I could play! I liked that I could have my own account and that way my son could do things on his level and didn’t find it too hard when he played! The illustrations are beautiful as are the graphics. By having dynamic math problems, kids and adults are engaged and want to play more! I also liked that it was not your traditional flashcard drill – by using dynamic screens and games kids can’t “game the system” and memorize the questions to get to the end of a level. My son enjoyed the beach ball party when he successfully completed one of the environments. There are six different chances to have a party!
Skills practiced include:
– mental math
– skip counting
– basic addition
– different ways to solve a problem (putting numbers together)
– creative thinking on how to save the Snortles
– “Squishing” of numbers to get to the right one on your path
– dynamic game play so you don’t play the same level over and over again even if you don’t earn enough stars
In terms of enhancements, I’d love to see the ability to sync across devices because there are times I have my iPhone but not my iPad and vice versa. I’d also like to see a parent screen where I could see specific areas that challenged my son – perhaps he’s getting stuck with a specific skill or number in a sequence so I could help him advance.
Another five star winner from Artgig. They seem to have the “secret sauce” when it comes to creating fun interactive apps that are dynamic and kids want to play over and over again! Great job Artgig! There are no in-app purchases or external advertisements contained within the app.
