By now we’re sure pretty much most mobile users are familiar with Fruit Ninja. For those who aren’t, the title is a rather iconic one as it was one of the games released early into the iPhone’s launch that truly showed how gaming on touchscreen devices could be like. The game has managed to maintain its popularity over the years and now its developers at Halfbrick Studios are thinking about diving into more educational titles.
This will come in the form of Fruit Ninja: Math Master. Basically this will still be based on the Fruit Ninja franchise and will feature some of the characters from the original title. However like we said, this title is aimed more at children and will attempt to teach them a bit of math while playing games. So instead of trying to slice as much fruit as possible, you’re now trying to slice the correct amount of fruit.
For example if an equation pops up asking what is “4 x 2”, you will then be expected to slice 8 pieces of fruit, and so on. There will be a variety of math questions and even some shape-recognition questions thrown into the mix. While it is aimed at kids, we reckon it could also be fun for adults looking to challenge their friends to some simple math problems while having a round of drinks.
Fruit Ninja: Math Master is priced at $5 and because it is aimed at kids, the folks at Halfbrick have decided to make the game a one-time purchase with no in-app purchases to prevent any accidental charges to the parent’s credit card. It is available on both iTunes and Google Play, so head on over to your respective app store for the download.
