Math Bugaboo is very similar to the game Butterfly Math by the same publisher. Unlike the other game, the subject of this game is creepy crawlers. If you don’t like bugs, stop reading now. The educational part of the app again consists of touching on bugs with numbers (on their backs) to match the result of an equation presented above. The bugs selected leave the screen, and what is left is used for the next problem. Repeat until all or 1 (not enough to answer a question) is left on the screen.

The transition between the levels this time is squashing bugs. The bugs ooze out blue and purple guts. My two youngest kids loved this part of the game. The app is nicely illustrated. The animation of the bugs scattering around is dead on. The bugs are of different shape, sizes and color. My middle son actually enjoyed playing the levels so he can see what the new bugs would look like.

If your children like bugs, and you can either look away (my wife) or don’t mind it (me), this is a great app for those bug loving children to do some math fact drills.

Available both on the Amazon App (Kindle Fire) and the Google Play Store for $0.99. I played the free version (as prompted by the publisher) on an Android phone.
