What you should know:
The sounds of the crowd and the enthusiastic sports announcer egg your student on as he solves multiplication problems. Get a right answer and it's a hit! The tiny baseball players will be hitting singles, doubles, triples and even home runs if their multiplication skills are sharp.
This three-inning game is designed for two players to compete against each other, which gives the app a nice social dimension. Students will be motivated to play together and compete to improve. The view is from high up in the stands and the sound effects and graphics are well done and realistic (complete with a professional-sounding TV announcer). The problem sets are solid, and although there's no way to adjust the difficulty level, the problems seem to get harder or easier depending on how many questions particular players get right or wrong.
One big problem with the game: Players can be randomly called "out" by the mean-looking umpire even when they answer every question correctly. This is an inherent flaw in the baseball model, since the game cannot progress if one player continues to get right answers.
