This is great on a Friday. It’s a game for Windows Phone 7 that’s geared towards kids. So you have to match the letter the game presents against one of three letters, or tell them which equation has a sum of 10 for example. The time restraint to answer the question is the amount of time it takes for one guy to shoot the other though. When a new problem is presented a bullet is fired and you have to answer it before the other guy is shot. It’s an interesting twist on a kids learning game. Most people opt for solving a problem before your ice cream hits the floor, but you have to appreciate a little Oregon Trail feel going on here.   With that background, the game actually looks pretty good and I imagine it works as a learning tool since I can see kids playing this without realizing it’s educational. I can laugh at it, but I have to admit, I think it works. Here it is in action.

  1. Hello David, thanks for interesting in my game!

    I’m Igor, and I’m the author of Keyzard.
    In this freeware version, I’ve included a second game, where the player must resolve simple arithmetic operations. The gameplay is the same of the first one, so you have three lives, a timer to measure your speed, and so on.
    But it’s good not only for kids, but also for us more adult! :-D
    Bye David!
