Clever Me: Math ‘n Shop is an iPhone app developed by Artisiti programske resitve. This learning aid helps users to boost their math and memory skills. Users can put their skills to the test by playing this grocery store simulator.
Clever Me: Math ‘n Shop bills itself as “the perfect learning experience for both children and adults.” While the game does seem a bit more tailored to the educational needs of elementary school children, it’s plain to see that some adults might also get a “Brain Age” sort of enjoyment out of this mentally challenging iPhone app.
Clever Me doesn’t fit well into any one genre. It’s a game, but a learning-centered game. Really, it feels more like an educational prep app than a full-fledged game. It challenges both your math skills, as well as your observational skills. It’s definitely a workout for your cerebellum, no matter what age you are (or what age your brain is!)
A note from the developers: they are aware that some users are a little confused by certain aspects of the game. They are planning some improvements, including a Facebook integration scheme, as well as an updated tutorial.
In the developer’s own words: “We have found out that many of the players do not know that they need to collect coins to get a score. Just to let you know we will have a tutorial update for the game soon (around 1-2 weeks, due to the fact that we are integrating Facebook support.)”
With challenging gameplay that’s fun for all ages, Clever Me: Math ‘n Shop is worth buying for your kids, or for yourself if you want to give your brain some exercise. But one word of warning: you will definitely get the song that plays in the background stuck in your head!
