Tilt (Jan, 1983)
On est un peu déçu par le graphisme, qui rappelle dans son dénuement les cassettes Atari de première génération. Il faut cependant bien reconnaître que le jeu lui-même ne se prêtait guère au délire imaginatif. On peut encore jouer seul contre l'ordinateur, qui a évidemment le bon goût de réduire sa vitesse habituelle de calcul, devant laquelle même un adulte s'inclinerait. Précisons encore que les plus âgés trouveront quelque plaisir à cette cassette, du moins dans un premier temps.
The manual indicates that this game is aimed at kids aged six to ten. That sounds about right for what this game has to offer. I would say that, even for someone that age, I wouldn't count on this game holding their attention for too long, and for someone much older than that, it won't hold their attention very long at all. It's a nice idea, but it lacks excitement, as do most edutainment titles. Unless you're one of those people who wants to have every game available on the Atari 2600, I think you can safely pass on this one.
Woodgrain Wonderland (Jun 12, 2017)
Math Gran Prix is not mechanically sound. Thanks to its shoddy graphics (even by 1982 standards), it’s hard to measure the game by spaces, which is key because the game asks you how many spaces you want to go before presenting the math problem. The cars are big and ugly, as are the special objects. Considering the game wasn’t fun back in 1982 and would undoubtedly be even less fun to kids today, Math Gran Prix will only appeal to collectors and nostalgia buffs in 2017.
