Challenge Me: Math Workout
7 February 2010
Excerpt: Math and videogames, these are two things that I never thought I would really see melded into one. Sure, there have been math puzzles included in a game full of different types of puzzles, but never have I seen math headline a game’s content. Well that day has come as Oxygen Games has recently released Challenge Me: Math Workout. Having already reviewed Challenge Me: Brain Puzzles I was somewhat intrigued to see what a game full of math problems offered.
Conclusion: Challenge Me: Math Workout gets some props for trying to invent unique brain-testing games. Unfortunately, they end up being executed more as trials of luck that leave the player frustrated or bored, and certainly not challenged. The lack of instructions will make it difficult for many to pick up and play – particularly in the children’s market, to which this game is targeted.
Pros: Original game concepts, A bit brighter and more appealing than Brain Puzzles
Cons: Bad instruction, Trite graphics and sound, Doesn’t live up to its claim – more guesswork than logic, Simply not enough substance
Excerpt: Maths has never really encouraged much excitement in people. Compared to guns, violence and scantily clad women, basic maths just isn’t up to job when it comes to keeping the attention deficit of modern gamers satisfied. Thus one might hope that Challenge Me: Maths Workout would be here to change all that and bring a whole new world of mathematical ecstasy to gamers everywhere.
Excerpt: If you’re one of those odd people who think these things are great, then here you’ll find a game simply not having enough options to place it above the hordes of other games that insist number crunching is a super way to pass your time.
