Full Review:

Talk about pressure on the cook—there's a monster in the middle of the sushi bar and he's hungry! Sushi Monster is a fun packaging of basic math facts that will have kids hungry for more.

This adorable animated monster bellies up to the sushi bar with a number around his neck and kids must serve up factors fast—or who knows what the fresh fish fiend may do! Addition and multiplication skills are tested with multiple levels of difficulty. The number sentences associated with problems appear above the monster, reinforcing equations for visual learners. A series of "target numbers" are a part of each problem; kids must choose combinations wisely or they may be stuck with sushi pieces that can't solve for the remaining problems.

The interface is a little busy at first, but once players get to the sushi counter it’s a one-on-one number crunching square off. Trophies and stars can be collected as little learners master 7 addition levels, 5 multiplication levels, and fourteen target numbers per round. This is a single-player game, but levels can be repeated for kids looking to get their turn at the sushi bar.

Teacher Features:
Single-player mode allows students to compete against each other for trophies, stars and best times, making this perfect way for kids to focus in a lively math classroom.
