“The gameplay is quite engaging, with the added bonus of allowing children to create their own levels. Tying math in with creativity is a pretty potent combination, and one that could well serve young gamers and students,” says Technology Tell.
“When I asked my daughter how she liked it, she told me, ‘I love driving the space ship to get the candy.’ I think it definitely helps her learn the math concepts that are so boring on paper worksheets from school. I highly recommend downloading some fun, creative math apps if your child struggles with disinterest in math at school and is more of a creative learner,” says See Mom Work.
“Nommons isn’t necessarily a math app or a game app; it’s both, and you can position it to your kids the way they want! It’s a game that plays like a side scroller in space, with cartoony graphics, aliens to avoid, candy to collect, etc. but you also earn points, which can be used to enhance your spaceship, by answering math questions,” says iPhone Life Magazine.
Nibblee is coming to town with the Nommons bringing the joy of math (really, math) to kids everywhere!

Nommons: Math Universe is on sale for $0.99 during the holidays.
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.
