[prMac.com] Washington, District of Columbia - Kata Enterprises, Inc., an emerging developer of math edutainment software for girls, is proud to announce the release of the first game in the S.M.A.R.T. Adventures series, Mission: MATH...Sabotage at the Space Station 1.0. Mission: MATH arrives just in time for summer vacation and is available for download from the App Store.
The game takes place on Space Station Prime, where recently promoted S.M.A.R.T. Agent Delta has docked to find total chaos. The computers are down, the science labs are a mess, and the communication system is barely functioning - is foul play involved? Playing as Agent Delta's assistant, Junior Agent Star, players use their math skills to repair the science labs and solve the mystery. This exciting adventure puts girls in the starring role while presenting positive female role models and giving them the freedom to explore and learn. Math practice has never been this much fun!
Mission: MATH features an exciting story line, a fully customizable player avatar, science labs to explore (and repair!), and handy tutorials for each laboratory. The story line features a wide range of supporting characters with fully spoken dialog. The labs themselves are fun puzzles that will challenge the players' math skills in fractions, decimals, bar graphs, factors, multiples, and more, all in a playful and pressure-free environment that girls will love. Parents will appreciate that it's safe and secure for kids to enjoy without supervision (no ads, in-app purchases, or links to outside websites).
