The story of the game is exciting: Count Opaloki desperately needs a vacation. However, the naughty oho-ghost has stolen his luggage and has hidden all the suitcases in the creepy castle. Poor Count Opaloki. Now it's up to the kids to help him. They have to solve math problems throughout all the rooms of the castle so Opaloki can get his belongings back. Funny things happen on the journey through the castle. The kids get to know a skeleton that desperately needs help reassembling his bony friend Karl.
The game simulates the journey through the castle. Each image has several hot spots that the kids can activate by simply tapping on them with their finger. This will start the math problems - and they are not easy. There are 15 different types of exercises.
Using a flashlight the kids have to look around in the dark in order to find matching numbers or solve classic math problems. The numbers-pyramid creates another challenge. All digits that are divisible by a given number have to be marked.
A lot of imagination served as the basis for creating a challenging game that will get the children excited about working on their multiplication tables.
Tanja Stuchels from recreo-kids: "The app in its new version 1.2 has received a major update. Two new levels have been added in which the children can go wild - mathematically. In the dungeon of the castle they will meet the fly Roberta that needs to be saved from the spider web and in the castle garden the player may come across the frog prince."
Children that want to get ready for the horror show in the creepy castle start in the practice mode. Here they have the option to decide whether they want to practice their multiplication tables in order or be randomly bombarded. This way the app can be used to get ready for an upcoming test in school.
