Coming on December 15, 2013 for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.
Build your spaceship by solving math problems and then go on an outer space voyage.
The fun doesn’t end when your ship crashes. You can continue where you left off by rebuilding your ship with the power of math!
Put a dinosaur in outer space or rebuild underwater ruins.
Be as creative as you want to be with Nommons: Math Universe.
After you create your universe, share it with your friends by giving them a secret password.
We showed Nommons: Math Universe at Meltdown Comics at a Halloween event for families. A bunch of kids dropped by to help Nibblee rescue his friends. All of them left with a smile and a Tootsie pop. The parents we talked to were just as happy since Nommons: Math Universe was encouraging their children to practice math.
One of the kids playing Nommons: Math Universe was around five or six years old. In the beginning, she struggled with double digit addition, but we and her parents watched as she improved with each play. We were all pleasantly surprised how quickly she went from asking her dad for help to solving problems on her own. I wrote down this feedback and used it to further adjust how the game adapts math question difficulty levels.
The best compliment we got during the event was a mom had to pull her kid away from Nommons: Math Universe – a math training edugame – to browse comics. Mission accomplished.
Nommons: Math Universe allows players to share worlds they create with friends without the need to go online. When you’re done build a world click on the “share” button to get a special password for your universe that you can give to other players.
If you have a password you can type it in the share menu to visit a friend’s universe.
