[prMac.com] Pleasantville, New York - Artgig Apps is pleased to announce a summer app giveaway - today only, Friday June 28th, their acclaimed educational app, Mystery Math Town for iPhone, is free (normally $1.99). Recently named by The Guardian as a top 50 kids app from 2013 that parents can trust, Mystery Math Town for iPhone requires mathematical skills and strategy to help a curious little ghost find and rescue the fireflies that are hidden in math town. As a bonus, children can earn talking portraits for their gallery, revealing the stories of the quirky townspeople and the town itself. The game is designed for ages 6-12 and up.
Stuart Dredge of The Guardian reports "...my six year-old has taken to it strongly: a game where you explore a series of spooky houses by tapping on stairs, ladders, doors and windows, solving sums before you can go through them using numbers collected along the way. You can tweak the difficulty level and sum-types to suit the age of your child."
Artgig President, Matthew Kicinski, says, "as parents, we understand the summer school break presents a struggle to balance fun while maintaining a reasonable level of academic enrichment for kids. As game developers, we strive to make educational games that kids want to play and we think Mystery Math Town is a great tool to keep math skills sharp and combat summer learning loss."
