It’s back to school time again, and by now all the kiddies are well immersed in all the homework a new school year can bring. If you have little darlings at home, you’re probably hearing about how difficult math can be. Amplify and Bossa Studios want to help combat the homework blues with their new game for iPad Twelve a Dozen. Join Twelve and her companion Dot as they adventure through their hidden calculator world to save their beloved city of Dozenopolis and their family from the Ultimate Prime Number.
As you would expect from the creators of Surgeon Simulator and Merlin: The Game, the player will venture through a beautifully crafted world of battles and physics puzzles that can only be conquered by the sheer power of math. Players will solve problems that revolve around addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, as well as introduce them to processes that will be essential in developing their understanding of algebra. Although Amplify indicates that the math is used to save the world in the game, it still feels a little inorganic. The fun adventure, however, makes up for this and will surely engage its players while providing extra practice and support in math for all who play.
