Math Mathews -The Search for the Necklace of Sylla, is a Serious Game designed for children and adults to practice and improve multiplication skills in a fun environment.

Created by speech therapists and game experts, Math Mathews helps children revise their time tables, utilizing three mini-games based on three different methods to live an engaging epic adventure! With game mechanics, such as collecting coins and rewards, accomplishing tasks and escaping from enemies, the app provides a learning perspective that improves user engagement as well as monitoring tools for parents to track progress.

Before starting the game, players can read the “Ship’s Log” to learn about the story of Captain Mathews -and his crew Carl and Celia. Captain Mathews is a pirate who has been turned into an octopus and to break the spell he needs to find the necklace of Sylla, which is broken into three parts scattered throughout archipelago Walter.

There are 3 different games to retrieve the 3 parts of the necklace: the ancient citadel, the secret temple and the sacred cave.
