Announcing that JT Enterprises, the developers of MathCents, has released the latest version of its counting skills app. MathCents combines education and fun to teach kids and adults the identification and counting of American coins. The game quickly becomes addictive because of its timed action, amusing response to wrong answers and simulated financial rewards.
MathCents is a game app that can help anyone improve their coin counting skills. The object of the game is for players to correctly guess the combination of American coins that equals the amount shown on the phone’s display screen before the app’s timer runs out.
To incorporate a sense of fun, an incorrect answer results in a large red "X" accompanied by a vibration of the phone, while a correct answer nets a quarter, which rolls across the screen and into the player’s piggy bank with a satisfying clanking sound. Players get to keep their reward quarters until they exit the game.
The app can played one user at a time but the collection of quarters enables the game to become a multi-player challenge, with each player keeping track of their score before passing the device to the next person. The player to collect the most quarters wins the match. Thanks to the built-in timer, players increase their speed with frequent play.
