Description official description

In Adventures in Math the player takes the role of a treasure hunter who explores a castle. The goal of the game is to find the exit while earning as much points as possible. Points are rewarded for picking locks and finding treasures. To achieve these tasks the player has to solve mathematical riddles while using the four basic arithmetic operations. The answer has to be typed in by using the keyboard. If the player doesn't succeed the game shows the correct answer and he has to try again - but in a few cases the treasure gets stolen by a spider and is lost forever.

In the beginning of each round the player selects the size of the castle and the used combinations of mathematical operations, e.g. only addition or multiplication and division.

A great use for an old computer.

The Good
Unlike most early educational games, Adventures in Math is actually fun to play. :-) This is coming completely from the biased viewpoint of a male, but the premise of answering math problems to explore a castle takes the repetetiveness out of math drills. The problems get progressively harder the deeper you delve into the castle.

The Bad
It is written in BASIC, so it isn't the fastest thing in the world.

The Bottom Line
Adventures in Math is a great game to give to a younger kid along with that old clunker in the basement. It's actually fun to play.

Trivia

BASIC

Adventures in Math did not immediately suffer from the Requires BASIC moniker; the graphics were above par and game response was swift, just like a compiled program.
