GOZOA – Play & Learn Math Lite
iPad App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com
GOZOA – Play & Learn Math Lite, developed by GOZOA, is a beautifully designed children’s game that is packed with tons of goodies to keep kids learning and entertained. Whether you’re looking for a game that’s rich in content or a great new way to help your child build math skills, this is a great iPad game that’s perfect for youngsters.
Concept and Gameplay:
For me, an effective children’s game has to balance educational content with entertainment. From the minute I opened GOZOA – Play & Learn Math Lite, I could tell that the developers of the game put a great deal of time into making it something that kids will actually enjoy playing. Another thing about GOZOA – Play & Learn Math Lite that I noticed almost immediately is that the helpful video and audio tutorial will help kids figure out how to play in no time.
Playing GOZOA – Play & Learn Math Lite somewhat reminded me of the old Super Mario days. The goal of the game is to move GOZOA, a cute purple character, through the world to pick up coins and complete mini games. These mini games focus on work with numbers 1-20 and include tracing, recognition, and other teaching methods.
Overall, it’s very easy to see how much time and effort was put into developing GOZOA – Play & Learn Math Lite. The graphics are sharp and cute, the narrative is clear, and the concept is unique and wonderful. I can definitely say this is a game that every parent with young children should have. One thing I do want to mention, though, is that the recommended age range for GOZOA – Play & Learn Math Lite is 5-8, which is pretty accurate.
GOZOA – Play & Learn Math Lite is a surprisingly extensive game with quite a few cool features. For example, kids can spend coins on accessories to customize the look of GOZOA. The store is packed with a neat variety of clothes and goodies, allowing them to take time to make GOZOA their own. The store is also very easy to navigate, which is something that can occasionally be challenging for young children.
Also, there can be up to three different GOZOA – Play & Learn Math Lite game profiles. Kids can choose which color they want to play, but the only problem I saw is that there isn’t a way to enter your child’s name on the profile so they know it’s theirs. This is a bit of a drawback, especially if you have multiple children playing GOZOA – Play & Learn Math Lite.
GOZOA – Play & Learn Math Lite is available in a lite version and a full version. The lite version is free, but you need to make three different in-app purchases of $1.99 in order to unlock all of the game’s content. The full version, GOZOA – Play & Learn Math, is $4.99. Personally I think the game is packed with enough content that it’s definitely worth the price, so I highly recommend it to parents who are looking for a fun and educational math game for their child.
GOZOA – Play & Learn Math Lite is compatible with iPad. Requires iOS 6.0 or later.
