Full Review:

Welcome to Base 10, Agent Prime! Dr. Odd is building a global network of computers to rid the world of even numbers and it's your job to stop him. Tiny sleuths must choose to accept the mission at hand to sharpen math skills and save the world.

A child—dubbed math master Agent Prime—must choose a mission from addition, subtraction, multiplication or division. Correct answers help super spies open secret doors, defuse bombs and foil Dr. Odd's plot; answer incorrectly, however, and access will be denied. Exceptionally crafted missions, comic-like graphics, complex storylines, global maps, and ticking time bombs are age-appropriate for any fifth grader. Opportunities to earn high-tech gear and new disguises, along with increasing difficulty, keep kids coming back for more. The missions’ punny names will keep players amused, while comprehensive intelligence for every quest is kept in a personal top-secret file at headquarters—perfect for tracking math progress as children play.

For kids itching for competition, the game’s multi-player mode allows for one-on-one math battles for rewards, completed missions and bragging rights. The free version includes limited features and surprises to unlock; the full version is comprehensive, with tracking capabilities, lots of missions and reference guides, making it well worth the splurge.
