Fearless Freddy & the Maths Monsters

A little maths (math) game I made for my 6-year-old son who is learning his times tables.

Guide our hero through the castle, collecting answers to the maths questions. But beware! If you collect the wrong answer, you’ll unleash a monster.

It’s only 6 levels so far, but it’s easy to add more if anyone wants to.

Oh, and it’s 100% written in blocks.

Feedback welcome!

This is great! I love the art and how you incorporated math into it!

Wow this is fantastic!

Did you draw the title screen directly in Makecode arcade, or import from another drawing app somehow?

I just received my kittenbot Meowbit this morning, and installed this game. Gave it to my 9 year old, and he played it for a solid 2 minutes or so. I think I’d move one or two of the numbers – I noticed that he bumped into a “10” on level 2 which you need to jump over to get to 21 (3x7=), and lost two lives that way. Otherwise though it’s seriously brilliant!

Thanks to this fun game my sons learned multiplication (and basic platforming). I added other 3 basic operations and personalized it for my son:
