Jump! A Game of Numbers Review [iOS]

jump_iconJump! A Game of Numbers is a new app from kid friendly developer, Artgig. They’ve already made numerous number and math themed games in the past and this one is their newest. This is game almost like connect the dots but with a mathematical twist. Your job is to rescue the Snortles and the only way to do so is to jump from one number to the next in order. It seems simple enough but does require some mathematical skill as you progress.

The game starts off really simple to get kids into it. Help rescue the Snortles by tapping on the numbers in order, rescuing them from the ocean, and then leading them to dry land. It’s not terrible difficult and helps children learn about number order. If they come across a part where there is no number to jump to, you must add 2 numbers together to form the number you need. This part of the game requires basic math skills so players who haven’t yet learned addition will find this game a bit challenging before they do.

Difficulty starts ramping up when the game starts making players count by twos, threes, and more. Again, your kids will need to know how to add for these parts and it’ll be good practice for them.

There are multiple levels and environments to play on and for each type of Snortle they rescue, they’ll get added to this play area where you can interact with them and play with them.  It’s an interesting reward system that should keep your kids interested.

I think Artgig has another winner here with Jump! It’s an interesting game that helps children learn number order and if their more advanced, how to do it by skipping numbers. Kids who don’t know how to add can still enjoy this, though they will need help playing. Who knows, it could help they learn how to add in the process.

Can you count by 2s or 3s…how about 12s? The adaptive game engine adjusts the difficulty for each player so the challenge is just right.

Watch out for Stompers and fuses or they’ll send your Snortles flying!

ADAPTIVE DIFFICULTY:

There’s no need to guess which difficulty setting to choose because there aren’t any!
The math difficulty, the number of problems presented, the frequency of obstacles, and the length of the path will all adjust to the player’s own skill level.

Hints are supplied at any time. Firstly because we think that being shown a correct answer is more instructive than being penalized for not knowing it, and secondly because sometimes an obvious move is hiding in plain sight.
