Little Worlds Interactive launches strategic math game for iPad and iPhone
BOSTON, MA—November 4, 1014—- Independent game studio Little Worlds Interactive is pleased to announce their award-winning math strategy game “The Counting Kingdom” will be available for mobile iPad and iPhone devices in the iTunes App Store on Thursday, November 6. Featuring addition-based math puzzles designed with kids between six and eight years old in mind, “The Counting Kingdom” offers strategic tower-defense gameplay that makes learning fun. “The Counting Kingdom” debuted on Steam in August.
Little Worlds Interactive founder Jenna Hoffstein offers, “Today’s mobile platform, specifically tablets, is a fantastic, easily-accessible place for kids and parents to enjoy games together, so I designed ‘The Counting Kingdom’ from the start with touch-screen controls in mind. Being able to take ‘The Counting Kingdom’ mobile means more opportunity for our audience to have fun learning at home and on the go.”
The energy and effort that Hoffstein has put into developing the studio’s debut game has resulted in praise since the game’s earliest stages. “The Counting Kingdom” won several game industry awards at events and conferences in 2014, and was most recently included in the PAX 10 Indie Showcase at PAX Prime.
A recent 5-star review from Examiner.com wrote, “‘The Counting Kingdom’ is an excellent game for all ages and one that I have little doubt will help youngsters with number manipulation and basic math skills.”
