[prMac.com] Brno, Czech Republic - Code Creator today is pleased to introduce Math Cards 1.0 for iPad, their arithmetic game where two players compete on opposite ends of a single iPad. Following the rules of the card game "War," each player starts with an equal number of cards, then they each play a card simultaneously. The highest card wins, unless they are equal, which creates a playoff or "War." The value of each card in Math Cards is the solution to an arithmetic problem, such as 2+0, and a player must correctly solve each card played or lose the round automatically, even if his "card" is higher. Players never play cards against each other displaying identical problems, although the solution to the problems on both cards may be the same number. An ideal educational game for practicing mental arithmetic, Math Cards has adjustable levels of difficulty, displays ongoing scores, and allows players to continue any stopped game.
* Math Cards is an arithmetic game based on the card game "War"
* Two players compete on opposite ends of a single iPad
* An ideal educational game that is fun to play
* Value on the face of each card is the answer to a math problem, e.g., 6+4
* Realistic cards and animations
* Game History tracks scores and allows finishing stopped games
Perhaps the most universal card game of all, played by children and adults worldwide, is the simple game of "War." And Math Cards, just as much fun to play, may be the new universal card game for the age of the iDevice. Played in portrait orientation, opponents face each other, play cards, and solve problems during each round. The iPad scores the game throughout, identifying incorrect answers, and the number of cards won. When players correctly select the number that solves the problem on the face of the card they played, and both correct answers are equal, then the game automatically deals both players three face down cards and a fourth face up. It is winner take all, unless "War" occurs again.
In the Settings panel, players can choose to have a game include one or more of the following four kinds of arithmetic problems: addition, subtraction, division, and multiplication. Furthermore, players can set addition and subtraction problems to include numbers in any one of four categories: 0-5, 6-10, 11-20, and up to 100. Similarly, division and multiplication equations can be set to include any numbers between 1 and 10.
"Math Cards is a game kids never tire of," stated Pavel Hanousek of Code Creator. "There's no time pressure during gameplay, making Math Cards a great way to practice arithmetic with a friend."
