Description

To many people math is intimidating and boring, but Blackboard Madness: Math is designed as a casual learning game. The App allows everyone to practice math in a fun way and offers a seamless learning experience with the help of an action-filled gameplay. In each round, a math equation is shown to the player. Immediately afterwards a batch of possible solutions is flying onto the screen. The player has to react fast and slash the correct solution before it leaves the screen again. Think, react, slash, and repeat. This simple formula turns math into an addictive casual game. Blackboard Madness: Math has many features and it's visual appeal helps the player to lose the fear of numbers and become a friend of math. Funny and interesting facts about math round up the learning experience after each game.

History

The Idea

The idea for this specific game originated somewhere around early 2011 when Marios and Szilard sat down over a cup of coffee to discuss their usual unusuals about work, life and everything else. Szilard was working full-time in finance and Marios was freelancing as a designer and studying. They decided to make a game just for fun and to learn something new. But what started out as a simple idea evolved into a quest to create fun and educational games for people of all ages. Their vision is to collaborate closely with educators and researchers to make the learning process more engaging and rewarding, and to advance conventional didactic approaches. In short, Mad Labs wants to "Make Smart Games".
