LONDON&SAN FRANCISCO - September 22, 2011

Mindshapes, a developer and publisher of interactive education apps, continues to make learning fun with the release of Meteor Math. This highly addictive numbers game plays off a classic arcade style, inspired by proven retro classics such as Asteroids and Space Invaders but instead of fighting aliens, players must tap the correctly numbered meteors to solve mathematical puzzles. Each level introduces a quickened pace and more complex problems to solve under time pressure.

Meteor Math is available on the iPad™, iPhone? and iPod? Touch, and teaches four principal mathematical functions—addition, subtraction, division and multiplication—through the playful combination of math drills and arcade games. Ideal for all ages, this snackable app can be enjoyed by parents and children alike. Whether you’re learning math fundamentals for the first time or just brushing up, Meteor Math will hook you in from the first level.

“We set out to inject fun into tedious math drills, and we ended up producing an app that is not only fun, but highly addictive,” said Jinhee Ahn Kim, director of mobile product development for Mindshapes.“As parents, we often worry that our kids are spending too much time playing video games, but with Meteor Math they are improving their math skills the more they play.”

Meteor Math by Mindshapes is available on the App Store for $2.99.
