The main purpose of this website is to support Android indie game developers with tutorials, reviews and promotion of their games. The main difficulty for the developers is not to make the game, but to get exposure. To get it out there. If you find anything useful here, please spread the word.

Mathician - Social math

This "game" is actually an educational app. It helps you practice your math skills. The gameplay is really simple. You will be guided through many levels doing harder and harder additions, subtractions, multiplications and divisions. Each level presents you with equations to solve and a keypad. You earn stars for avoiding mistakes and calculating the problems fast...

But that is not all. The thing that makes this app different from the other math apps is the social aspect. The author who goes by the name of TwZ added achievments, leaderboards and even an option to challenge real players, including your friends from contact list.

Without the social part, this game would probably be boring as math can be sometimes. But the option to compare yourself to the world and especially to your friends keeps you engaged.

If you are a competetive person, you will probably find yourself coming back to this game. And in the meantime you will practice your brain which is never a bad idea.


There's not much to say about this game - it's really just a simple math skills practicing app with social aspect. But if you like challenge and/or math and have a group of similar minded friends, give it a shot!
