[prMac.com] Edmonton, Canada - Pyxwise Software, an educational game and software developer, today unveiled its Simplex Math Galactic Blaster for sale on the App Store. The space-themed game offers children a fun and effective way to practice and learn math. Many parents worry about their children spending too much time on tablets and smartphones, yet a new breed of educational apps means that kids' natural fascination with technology can be put to good use.
In Simplex Math Galactic Blaster, the player takes control of a spaceship and journeys the universe solving math problems and defeating alien attackers. The player can choose to practice addition, subtraction, multiplication or division, and there is a range of difficulty levels to keep children challenged. The app can be customized to speed up the learning process, and progress statistics are tracked and summarized using charts and progress reports. These help parents and teachers know what the child's strengths and areas for improvement are, making the app a great aide to traditional classroom teaching methods.
The app has lots of features to keep kids entertained, including:
* A perfect mix of action and education to avoid boredom
* A space theme with a spaceship that can be customized into over 2000 possible configurations
* Earning gems for solving problems, which can be exchanged for spaceship upgrades
