  • When people typically think of educational games they do so with a bit of a groan. I know while I was growing up that while valiant attempts were made to make things more interesting in subjects like math the tendency was for not only the games being somewhere between lame and even non-existent but for the math problems themselves to be too static to be very effective themselves. Mathland takes a smarter path and not only has a reasonably good (though generally simple) action game serving as a base that features math at only distinct times but also throws variations in problems at you that will likely keep you more engaged and require players’ brains to change things up with some regularity. I think the best feature the game has is simply turning some of its problems into simple algebra, whether the user knows it or not, asking for the missing factor in a problem and not always just the solution. This manages to turn what is labeled as an addition problem into one of subtraction, etc and for me it helps elevate this into probably being the best overall educational game I’ve ever played (though, granted, I can’t say there’s been much viable competition).
