    These games truly perplex. It's supposed to be aimed at kids, the type that would still find some challenge in basic arithmetic. Yet this is as verbose as the worst type of jRPG. The characters simply do not know how to shut up and let a kid play a game. My patience was extinguished in very little time, so I fail to see how a child will tolerate it.

    On top of this, the navigation is plain shoddy. Attempting to find your way around the world requires memorization--and again, patience--that no child is going to possess. Meaning it will only alienate the only potential audience, so this game fails on every account.

    Game developers working on children's games need to try TESTING THE GAME WITH CHILDREN. Just because you, an unwashed programmer of 43 years is content with the fruits of your labor does not mean that little Timmy will enjoy it. I have observed this over countless DS games now, and it was inexcusable the first time.

    I certainly wouldn't give it as a gift to any kid that I know, it would just sit in a drawer while she plays Nintendogs or Wario Ware.

    Someone has to add a bit of support to this game. I actually don't think it's too bad at all. Sure there is a bit of babbling, but you can scroll through it pretty easily, and there is a huge amount of varied math based mini games and some not even math based.

    I would definately recommend giving it a shot if you are into good quick thinking games
