Math Combat Challenge now 50% discount

Math Combat Challenge now has a new price tag. The mathematical game where solving math exercises is the key to survival.

In first person, or on board a space fighter, each scenario presents a different challenge, but they all have one thing in common: the key to survival is not the destruction of the enemy, but the resolution of random mathematical problems.

Enjoying math while learning, an equation to solve

Spanish version here.

Back to school is coming, and the little ones of the house will return to their typical activities, including games. Basically we can divide them into the classics, from which the end is always announced without it coming, fortunately, and the new ones, which focus, above all, on the always attractive consoles that almost all children want. Consoles for children who, let’s not kid ourselves, enjoy a lot, and sometimes even more, parents.

It is important, it is fundamental, that children play. Obsessed with studies is tremendously negative, and excessive pressure on children to study only causes an adverse reaction. It’s not a good idea for them to spend the day playing the game, but let’s not forget: it’s not a good idea for them to spend the day playing football or any other activity. Everything has its time and quantity. Like everything else in life, they have to strike a balance.

And then they have to study. And the dreaded maths are a challenge, now, and always. Coming to school suffering because of the “math” class is a dangerous path for the intellectual development of young people. But there are solutions. Let’s go see him.

Welcome to Math Combat Challenge: Angel of Helheim

Math Combat Challenge version 1.40 is now available, with a 40% discount, and several important technical improvements. The most significant is an enhancement of the graphic quality in the game, which is also achieved through the use of dynamic resolution.

The game also allows now that each graphic level chosen by the player enables a greater graphic visualization than in the previous version.

But the main element is in a new character, which is activated by default. This character is the Angel of Helheim, who has a particularity: he is immortal.

Throughout the game, this new character may be attacked, and will flee. But he’ll be back after a while. What are the features of this particular character?

First, it will randomly shoot the player. His shots are not harmful, but his persistence can make the player lose his temper, having to scare him off every time. In addition, the Angel of Helheim will destroy the numbers we need to solve the mathematical panels, which will make it difficult to finish them in the stipulated time.

Math Combat Challenge will be on sale for a few days, and in the meantime, we continue to prepare a new scenario for its children’s and youth version, the Math Classroom Challenge. Thank you all so much for your support.

Videogames: when playing and learning is fun

Spanish version here.

Educational games have existed since the beginning of the computer age. Games whose main purpose is to teach, allowing students to acquire a series of knowledge and skills based on software that allows them to analyze their skills, improve them, and obtain a final result.

But, too often, educational games are too educational. What does this mean? They are very focused on the training component, leaving aside the recreational component. This characteristic of this type of game means that the use of these programs becomes, in many ways, an extension of a math or physics class. We have virtual blackboards, with virtual problems, that are solved as in class: with a virtual chalk, and with a result that is a score of the exercises solved.

This approach is not negative, but it is important to go beyond the idea of creating extensions of a math or physics class. And that’s where games appear that are very similar, if not equal, to any video game we can imagine, but that, inside, contain elements that allow the development of the player’s knowledge. This is called merging player and student, so that both the player and the learner are the same individual.

Many of us have learned through games that, in principle, do not have the official educational label, although we all know that they are. I will give three examples. The Civilization saga would be the first. How much history have we learned from this saga? The second would be the Sim City saga, or its current derivative, Cities: Skylines, where we learn all aspects of a city’s development. And the third one is one that particularly touches me: the flight simulators. How many people who started with the Flight Simulator and other simulators ended up being professional pilots? I know a few of them.

We must look for new sources of learning, based on traditional PC and console games, merged with educational elements. The virtual blackboard is very important, but why stay there? We can create fun, exciting games in three dimensions, with good graphics and sound, which also have an important educational and training component.

That is our mission. And in that task we are involved. Learning without knowing what you are learning. That’s our motto. And we want it to be so for thousands of young people around the world. Thank you very much.

Everything ready, and math is the limit

We are ready to conquer schools, homes, and anyone who wants to learn and practice math.

This is the promotional poster for Math Classroom Challenge, associated with the Steam release. Trying to be original, and with a little humor is always important. We are finishing the test with the Steam version, and the iOS versions are now available at the App Store.

Short video featuring Math Combat Challenge Augmented Reality

This is a short video featuring Math Classroom Challenge AR Edition, developed with Augmented Reality. The game has the same features as the standard Edition, but it has been modified in order to be played in the street. Final testing is in progress.

We plan to finish tests in some days, and then upload the game to the App Store. We think we’ll do it by the end of April. Soon we’ll give the exact date. Coming soon to Oculus and Steam too. Thank you for your interest.
