Motion Math: Hungry Fish Comes to App Store


Fun Math App for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch Launches in 11 Languages

SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Motion Math, the pioneer of fun, interactive mobile math games, is today releasing their latest learning game for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, Motion Math: Hungry Fish. The app, available now on the App Store, helps children ages 4 and up practice mental addition and subtraction. Motion Math: Hungry Fish is available in 11 languages at launch -- English, Spanish, Chinese, Japanese, French, German, Dutch, Swedish, Korean, Arabic, and Italian.  

"Most math worksheets and math games ask the question '3 + 4 = ?' Hungry Fish instead challenges players to find, for example, the many different ways to create a sum of 7," said Gabriel Adauto, co-founder of Motion Math. "We're excited for children around the world to have fun playing with numbers." The game features a fish who eats a specific sum; players use the Multi-Touch functionality of iPad, iPhone or iPod touch to pinch two numbers together and instantly add them. Feeding the hungry fish wins levels and unlocks new colors and fins. 

Features of Motion Math: Hungry Fish include: 

  • An intuitive visual metaphor for addition: the bringing together of two objects.
  • An additional "Cave mode" that features a Mad Fish who eats wrong answers.
  • Three operation types: addition, subtraction, and negative numbers.
  • 18 levels of difficulty, from number-matching for pre-schoolers all the way up to levels that even challenge adults. 

The Motion Math: Hungry Fish App is available for free from the App Store on iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, or at Additional levels are available through In-App Purchase.
