    Excellent fun creative happy i found it

    This is such a great app! My 4 year old and 7 year old love it. You are on a mission and have to answer math questions before you can move on. Its timed and there is a practice area, too. They are learning and having fun...they dont even realize they are learning. They think they are just playing a spy game. Totally suggest it. my kids are boys, it would be cool if i could do it as a girl spy. Hey i just turned 40...i could still totally be a spy...and work on my math! Great app.

    Great idea, some flaws

    I got the trial version to let my 7 year old daughter play it. 10 minutes later I deleted it. Here's why.

    She was having fun at first, but quickly became frustrated when the keypad (the area on the screen where you enter the "access code") wasn't responding to her touch. She has played other Nook games and never had a problem. I tried it and had no problem, so my guess is that her slightly longer nails were touching other parts of the screen besides the part she wanted to touch. A larger area to enter the Access Code would have probably solved this problem.

    This next point probably seems trivial to most people, but I'll mention it anyway. Adding to her frustration is the language "Mission Failed" at the end of the mission. She puts a lot of pressure on herself and really hates being told that she failed at something.

    I really like the concept and the app seems very well done. If I had a boy I'd probably be writing a glowing review right now. Bottom line: if you have a girl, start with the free trial and see how it goes before you buy.

    Very creative math game.

    My children are 12 yrs, 8 yrs and 6 yrs. I think this will be their favorite math app. It reminds me very much of James Bond.

    Great app!

    This is a great math tool for learning and reviewing. It's interactive, giving problems that can be solved by touching a number keypad. You can choose the math operation (or combination of operations) that you want to try, and as you solve levels, you move on to more difficult problems. The character in the game is sent on missions similar to James Bond missions. After completing a certain number of levels, you are awarded a new spy outfit or a new spy watch. The only problem with the missions is that the text is so small that it's hard for me to read them. My kids enjoy the game, and as a homeschool mom, I find it to be an excellent math review! One other thing that would make the game even better is this: Each level has a certain number of problems. That number is noted in the "fine print" of the mission. The game keeps track of them at the edge of the screen, but it's really hard to tell at a quick glance how many you've solved. It would be nice if that could be made more clear. I do recommend this game as a great review of basic math operations. Well worth it!

    Even adults can love it

    I got the free trial and loved it. I had my 11yr old nephew play it and he was having fun. The only thing that i would have to say is a downside it the fact that the keypad is so small. Wish it was bigger. All in all is it really great.

    My boys were excited to practice math with this game.  The concept is great!  Like another reviewer said, the keypad could be bigger.  Sometimes my boys have trouble with the right number registering, esp as they get more worried about time running out.  The bigger problem is that the difficulty level increases too quickly for my boys (ages 6 and 9).  My 6 year old really wanted to continue the game and kept trying for a long time, despite frustration that he couldn't move past the first few levels on his own..  This game hasn't been played in many months since they gave up on it.  But it has the potential to be a great game!  And perhaps as they get better with their math skills they will come back to this game.

    Challenging

    This is a great math facts game. It's challenging and you accumulate different gadgets by making past each level. Given the standardized tests in NYS for kids in school (which I completely disagree with teaching to the test, but that's a different post) it helps the kids work quickly to get the right answer and in a fun way because as they get past each level they earn another "gadget". My 1st grader did get a little frustrated but nothing that isn't expected when you're trying to accomplish something in a short period of time.

    Its ok but it gets boring after a while.

    The music gets super annoying during training if you train for a long time. They need to have lots of different music. Also, the app deleted all the watches i have earned! And i spent 4 monthes getting that suit and watches!! I would recomend it if you dont mind losing stuff you win. Besides that i like it.

    This one worked.

    What it teaches: mental arithmetic (+,-,x,/) in a timed environment. Yes, there's more to math than arithmetic, but timed tests in school are/were a stumbling block for a lot of kids (including myself) and can lead to a lifetime of math anxiety and innumeracy.

    Dunno why, but after trying and trying to get the girls interested in a math game to ease the pain, this one worked. I'm sure different math apps appeal to different kids, but this one is definitely worth a try!
