AWEsum Plus is a more skills-focused version of the award-winning action-packed puzzle game, "AWEsum!" Co-designed by a veteran K-12 math supervisor and a former console game designer, AWEsum Plus is a pedagogically sound technique for moving the human brain from concrete to abstract representations of numbers - the foundation cognitive principle for success in K-12 mathematics. In simpler terms, the types of thinking required in this game have been shown to mathematically attune students of all ages - and even adults!
The object of the game is to guide and place a pair of falling number cubes onto other cubes below so that the single digits assigned to each cube, when added together, equal the game's predetermined "AWEsum".
Correctly paired cubes result in their disappearance, preventing the "cube wall" from reaching the top of the board and ending the game. Receive scoring bonuses by power-dropping cubes, matching cube colors, or making multiple AWEsum pairs at once.
The AWEsum changes periodically throughout the game - keeping you on your mathematical toes! Game speed progressively increases and "special" cubes with powerful cube-bursting features are introduced as periodic rewards to players who demonstrate proficiency.
AWEsum Plus is extremely configurable, allowing the parent, teacher, or child to restrict the randomly appearing AWEsums and game speed to a certain range or single value, modify the appearance of Swap spheres and Special cubes, eliminate periodic piece drop to remove time constraints, etc. A Skills Assessment screen summarizes the user's strengths & weaknesses.
