KiiiZ is a game that allows everyone to learn or revise how to read musical notes in several clefs by the means of an arcade gameplay while having fun.

KiiiZ Tiny Music Robots rating places it amongst the top 10% of over 1,900 educational apps reviewed to date by Balefire Labs.
During the review process, apps are evaluated based on several criteria: instructional design, such as providing feedback for correct answers and mastery-based instruction; usability design, such as reporting with actionable data and utilizing age-appropriate reading level; and additional data, such as whether the app has push notifications or links to social media.
